I've been using firefox for a really really long time, and I play quite a lot of facebook games. Yesterday morning, things were working perfectly fine, but later in the day, I suddenly started getting these shockwave errors. I can't recall downloading anything and I must have uninstalled and reinstalled the flash player at least 8 times. It's honestly starting to frustrate me. I love firefox, but if the browser refuses to work, I probably won't be using it for much longer.

Hello there,

I've had this problem for a long time, and I've done most everything suggested in other forums regarding this matter. I've disabled "disabled protected mode, disabled hardware acceleration, made sure everything is updated, and nothing works. Unfortunately, this makes Firefox so unusable that I've had to switch to another browser for the time being, but it's having it's own issues. Very frustrating! I like Firefox and would like to have it working, but this "shockwave flash plugin" problem has been a persistent problem for the last year.

I've seen many other users who have not been able to fix the problem via the above suggestions, so--what's the verdict? Is there something else I can try?

Cheers

UPDATE! This question is not marked as answered, as the issue is a new 'feature' of Firefox 22, and if you read all the comments you'd see that. Clearly, with the large volume of 'new' answers coming in saying the same thing over and over, people aren't, so I'll say it here: THERE IS NO NEED TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION ANY MORE.

I recently asked about my UI being big and fuzzy, and managed to get that fixed in the about:config, but websites are still big.

For some reason, the default zoom (ctrl+0) is at 120%.

I tried the FullZoom and NoSquint addons, but both had one issue. They messed up the top level image view (which for me works with the old default image style addon) and made the unzoomed image a bit bigger than my screen, and the magnifying glass icon which should appear with a + or - in it when I mouse over the image is just a regular mouse pointer instead.

How can I reset the default zoom to be 100% (or preferably about 80% because even 100 seems to be overcompensating for my high dpi screen) without an addon messing up my default image view?


Further details. If I disable the 'old default image style' addon, the top level image view works fine with the NoSquint or FullZoom addons.

I'm running XP on a lap-top that originally had Vista that didn't work as well and Firefox 26.0, up-to date. I have "Add-Ons" of; Adblock Plus 2.4.1, Advanced System Care 1.0 and NoScript 2.6.8.12

Ever since updating to 26.0 that damnable "plug-in container.exe" has been slowing down my web surfing and I'm constantly ending the process in task Manager. I want to disable or remove it completely with easy-to-read instructions - Not some of the 5-page "mumbo-jumbo" I've been reading for other "solutions". It has slowed me down and irritated me to the point of considering returning to I-E.

It has to go or I'm going.

Everytime I try to download a "large" file Firefox keeps asking me:

Firefox needs your consent to download large files. Please click ALLOW to continue your transfer.

If you cannot see the request, please click on the icon next to the address bar.


I didn't have this kind of troubles before until the new version, I'm so frustrated that I'm really thinking to switch to Chrome instead.

And in case someone wonders, there isn't a request icon at ALL.

After I uninstalled Firefox, all icons returned to usual PDF icons and files were identified as "PDF" files, but when I installed Firefox (31.0) again, all PDF files again are identified as "Firefox HTML document". Extensions do not change, they are always .pdf, and files automatically open in Adobe Acrobat, but icons became "firefox HTML documents" icons and it is very confusing.

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

edit : fixed some typo

I tried to use Firefox in three different computers but only in the one with over 4 GB of ram is usable. Why it uses so much RAM and renders so slow? Specially the scroll is really laggy.

I tried clean installations but they do not fix the issue.

When opening Firefox and Chrome and playing a video in YouTube, Firefox uses over 500 MB while Chrome uses less than 300 MB. Both with the same single addon.

Is there something that can be done to use Firefox in computers with less than 4 gb of RAM?

My Firefox on a windows 7 HP laptop updated today (June 25th) and the zoom adjusted, changing the font size, as well as icons and zoomed in on websites. I noticed in the list of changes for the program it says "improved rendering on high-res displays" is this the problem and is there anyway I can disable this? I was quite happy with the resolution before, and find this tacky and annoying...

Heuristics will allow addons to keep working after upgrading they said. Firefox won't break your addons they said.

19->20 Firefox broke the addon (though installing the identical version again got it working again) 20->21 Firefox broke the addon again.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/SnapLinksPlus/

While they're trying to get the addon working, and for some a beta version works, for those of us who need these addons it means we need to downgrade Firefox. What's the best way to go about it? (PS: I don't care about security or what new features are in FF21 - I'd rather have working addons)

This is still prevalent and I have had to disable the plugin for shockwave player. Similar was happening with adobe flash player but since the Firefox update it isn't happening as much. Is there a solution to solve this or is it a Adobe issue that they need to fix.? When it hangs or crashes it sometimes takes out downloads. I rolled back to the older dowload box because if I closed the browser it took the downloads out. Downloads don't crash as much with the older download box but with Firefox 20 ( with the new download style) the downloads died quickly with an error message the "file could not be read"

Also, is it okay to enable my add ons now, they were accentuating the problem as well.

As of midnight 12/12/14, Firefox started blocking plugins (in this case, Adobe Flash and Java Deployment Toolkit, possibly others as I've just been to websites that use those), saying that they're out of date. When I click on "Update Now," the Plugin Status page tells me that all my plugins are up to date. (I'm currently running Flash 15.0.0.239 and Java Deployment Toolkit 10.71.2.14, for the record.)

I get the point of this feature, and I really don't want to permanently turn on "always allow," but having to click two "allow" prompts every time I load a website that features Flash is quickly making web browsing intolerable. I'm on the verge of switching to Google Chrome over this.

When I downloaded Firefox's last update Firefox 22, Last night everything is now so zoomed in and big on this Firefox. Even the buttons seem bigger. I wanted to know how can I reset everything so it will look like the previous update of Firefox ?


Everyweb page I go to I have to zoom out twice just to get it back to its normal size now.

Is there also away to just change the webpage zoom and leave the buttons there current size. My brother likes how big the buttons on firefox it self is but not how far it's zoomed in on web pages.

Firefox just out of nowhere decides to disable the flash plug-in without asking me. And everytime I go to a site that uses flash, I have to see this message (see link below.)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/why-do-i-have-click-activate-plugins

So how do I reactivate the flash plugin without updating it? The reason I do not update it, is because when I update it, I get a constant pop-up error message. And when I uninstall my flash altogether, the constant error pop-up messages stop, but now I get the "you don't have it installed" message. And when I download an outdated version

So no matter what I do, I have problems with this. I don't want to have to keep clicking the "always activate plugin for this site" button, for every site I visit on the world wide web, because that is out-of-this-world annoying.

I'm getting really irritated by firefox, and their bull. I will not update because you can't keep up.
