Can't upload anything in gmail; firefox is getting crashed everytime

Hi there,
I was trying to email attaching some files (.tar.gz). Everytime I was trying to attach file, the tab got crashed. Then I was trying to restore and upload palin text files. Still getting crashed. Anything I want to attach in gmail, the total tab got crash. Any suggestion? I tried
sudo yum remove firefox
sudo yum install firefox
But the problem persists. My system is:
[zillur@genomics mauve_out_test]$ uname -a
Linux genomics 3.10.0-514.21.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 25 17:04:51 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Best Regards

Are your attchments larger than Gmail's attachment limit? Gmail’s attachment limit is 25MB.

The first thing I would try is to restart Firefox with Add-ons disabled and see if that affects the problem (assuming that you are actually able to upload attachments to Gmail without add-ons in Firefox).

I'd try a different browser just so you can pin it on firefox, or not.

I once saw this problem on an older version of Firefox. After updating to a newer version the problem disappeared.
