tl;dr - Acrobat Pro DC is inconsistently crashing while I'm adding page headers and footers. Here - Dropbox - acrobat-crash-report.txt - is the crash log.
I'm working with a large (~120) number of PDFs, from disparate sources, and adding page headers and footers to them. This is done in four separate operations, as the even and odd page headers differ in position and content, and the even and odd page footers differ in position.
I add the page headers first, then the page footers.
Acrobat Pro DC (details below) running on a MacBook Pro (10.11.4) crashes on about 30% of the files when I try to add the second page header.
The crash log can be found here: Dropbox - acrobat-crash-report.txt
Once I restart Acrobat and successfully apply the second page header (which happens in one try MOST of the time, but sometimes it crashes again and I need to try again), the footers apply without issue.
Hopefully this will help to diagnose the issue, and produce a fix. This is really annoying. I've learned to save my work after applying the first page header, so that if it crashes while applying the second, I haven't lost what I've already done.
(And no, I've not found an easier way to do what I need to do. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place. If something out there says, "Jeez, he's doing that the hard way..." reach out and let me know the easier way to do this.)
Thanks for the detailed report.

With our latest update released on Oct 11, 2016 - this issue has been fixed.
Please apply the latest patch by visiting Help > Check for Updates from within the product.
The update did not work for me, what did is that I figured out I when I right clicked on the file in windows explorer and pick edit with Adobe Acrobat it did not crash. I tested a few times. Simply opening the file by double clicking on it brings you to the cloud format which crashes the header. When you click on edit with adobe acrobat in the file drop menu it opens up as if the software was installed directly on your computer and allows you to edit the header.
That update was 5 years ago! What exact version of the app do you now run?
I did the the update as instructed and the latest one that it did was 2015 Release(Continuous) Version 2015.009.20077. I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
That's a six year old update. Very very out of date. And even older than the original discussion.
