FF has stopped working

on Fri Feb 06, 2015 12:00 am

When we run regression on FF, the FF stopped working randomly. Here is the message on Firefox pop-up window -

Firefox has stopped working

A Problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Any idea &\ suggestion? Thank you very much in advance.

Here is our execution environment -
Window 7 on VM
FF version 34
Selenium webdriver- 44

Thanks again!

Try to use this function when closing the browser
public  void forceKillApplicationFromProcess(String appName){
      // TODO Auto-generated method stub

      switch (appName) {
      case "firefox":
         try {
            Runtime.getRuntime().exec("taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe");
            Runtime.getRuntime().exec("taskkill /F /IM plugin-container.exe");
            Runtime.getRuntime().exec("taskkill /F /IM WerFault.exe");
         } catch (IOException | InterruptedException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block


If it appearing in between , then place a check when this error appeared, close the browser and reopen with same state.
