Can you provide the crash ID from about:crashes? Does it happen in Safe Mode (see https://support.mozilla.org/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode)?

For your concern about the security, the Java Platform SE7u6 plugin and below will be blocklisted. See bug 785837.

Comment 4

correct, I copied the crash id of comment 2 via clipboard. Once I clicked on it, even though a sent date was already there, it started sending the crash and in the end the crash number and send date changed as per comment 3. Thereafter, clicking on the crash id again didn't redo the same suprising steps.

Regarding comment 4, only 10% of crash reports are automatically submitted to Mozilla's servers to prevent their saturations. You need to click it to make it submit.

What about the safe mode?

Does this also happen in 16 beta 1 (to be released today)? We fixed bug 700583 there, which has the same crash signature, so could be connected.
Is this still an issue in FF 24 release and java 7u40 ?
