I was far away from my PC and I have Kali Linux installed in my Android Smartphone, but I didn't use It for a while, for some reasons I have no choice other than using Kali Linux in Android

When I opened Kali Linux and fire up Firefox, I have noticed something unusual that Firefox getting crashed everytime, I thought maybe updating the Kali Linux will help, so updated the Kali Linux and opened Firefox again still no change, again tried to update Firefox, I have noticed that Firefox was up to date

I was disappointed for a while tried to uninstall and reinstall firefox, still no change, I had no other option than using Brave, tried to install Brave but stuck with bunch of errors

So uninstalled Kali Linux, and Installed Kali Nethunter, again, opened firefox still noticed the same issue, thought that my RAM was not enough, for that I have uninstalled bunch of Apps but that did not help
