Question

When you can add your computer specs. Use the viewer's HELP->ABOUT... to collect the info and paste it into your post.

What you have posted suggests you should not be having crashes.

The only things I can imagine is if a driver is out of date or you are limited on system memory. I find that Firestorm can suck up 15 GB of memory and then crash. I have 32GB. Doesn't happen often. I think in a month FS has only crashed twice. If your system only has 8GB, as my old Win 7 system does, you'll crash much sooner, like hourly or couple of hours at most. If you are in a crowd, it can happen sooner and more often.

Without out detailed information it is hard to say what the actual cause may be.

You can get the free tool Memory History Tool to watch your system's use of memory. You'll see it go red as you run out of free memory for the viewer to eat.
