Firefox Crashes on 64bit OS – Toshiba Add-On The Culprit

Every now and again, the hardware guys just get in the way. Toshiba created a plugin for Firefox called Automatic password input in fx. Here’s the thing – it doesn’t work on a 64 bit operating system. It totally crashes Firefox. And in a bid to be even more helpful, you cannot uninstall that plugin. But you can do the next best thing – disable it. Here’s how…

1. Go to the start menu and start Firefox(safe mode)
2. Disable all add-ons
The browser should now load in Safe Mode.
3. Go to Tools -> Add-Ons
4. Click the “Extensions” tab
5. Disable the extension called “Automatic password input in Fx1.0”

You can then close Firefox and start it again normally (i.e. not in Safe Mode). Done.
