Please, for me it's in R$.

Thank you Doug, Bruce and Ken (hope didn't forget anybody).

Ken, you helped me a lot, much more than I think you thought.

Stopped using the mouse for scroll and FF didn't crash anymore, so I
could work, finally.

Also spent some time in private mode, and, IIRC, it didn't crash.

In the meantime I disabled some extensions, changed many configurations.
It still crashed, although a little less, and repeating, not when not
using the mouse for moving the page up/down.

I've seen that they changed tw things that affected me very much (I think):

◦ Add-on extensions that are not signed by Mozilla will display a
◦ Improved scrolling, graphics, and video playback performance with
    off main thread compositing (GNU/Linux only)

Tomorrow, will spend some time again in private mode.

Thanks you all again.

Good night.
