File extension .EXTRA
|Mozilla Firefox Crash Report Format||Mozilla||Data Files|
The EXTRA (Mozilla Firefox crash report file) file extension is a type of file generated by the open source Firefox web browser. It is generated whenever the program experiences a crash, storing information about the failed process in a log file that can be used for troubleshooting purposes. The crash report usually contains a list of software modules involved in the crash, the state of memory at the time of the failure, the version of Firefox, as well as a description of the error that caused the problem.
Purpose & Applications
The primary purpose of the EXTRA file is to provide technical support personnel with information needed to diagnose and fix the underlying problem. When submitting a bug report to the Mozilla Corporation, users are asked to attach their EXTRA files in order to facilitate more accurate reporting. Additionally, this file may contain user-specified details about what caused the crash, such as specific websites or add-ons that were active at the time.
Similar File Extensions
DMP, DRW, SSL, HPI, FSYM, and other file extensions related to crash reports are similar to the EXTRA extension. All of these different files are intended for identification and debugging when an application experiences errors or fails to function properly.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .EXTRA) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .EXTRA extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .EXTRA file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .EXTRA extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .EXTRA extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .EXTRA file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .EXTRA file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .EXTRA file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .EXTRA file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .EXTRA file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
