I have the latest "Who Crashed" download, 6.50. After it was downloaded it provided me with the following analysis....

Crash dumps are enabled on your computer. This system is not configured for complete or automatic crash dumps. For best results, configure your system to write out complete or automatic crash dumps. Select Tools->Crash Dump Configuration from the main menu to configure your system to write out complete memory dumps.

Crash dump directories:
C:\windows
C:\windows\Minidump

No valid crash dumps have been found on your computer.

Would it be to my advantage to configure my computer with the above or leave well enough alone?

To be honest, I'd leave well alone.
How often are you getting blue screens of death? if like most people, they are few and far between...... why worry about it.
A long as your system is kept up to date ( including the drivers) you shouldn't really need it.
I think the last BSOD that I had was about 2 years ago .... and that was down to a failing hard drive.

I haven't had a BSOD in years. In reference to "drivers", this forum as well as others recommended never to upgrade drivers. Has this recommendation changed?

I wouldn't use the built in Windows facility or the Windows Update for updating any drivers.
If I suspect that a driver needs updating, I'd go to the vendors website and download the drivers from there.

I see you are running an outdated browser. FF 56.2.5
End-of-life 56.0.x product line on November 14, 2017.

You should be running FF 64 or ESR 60.4.

If you don't like FF Quantum, try other browsers that have been patched.

You can backup you bookmarks prior to installing Firefox.

As far as loosing bookmarks installing another browser where did you get that?

When you install FF ( or any main browser) it'll ask if you want to import any bookmarks from other browsers that you have installed.
