Flash videos hang the entire browser, killing plugincontainer.exe wakes Firefox up again

I need help! :) Disclaimer: I'm actually trying to help a friend of mine, and I personally spent over an hour at my friend's apartment trying to fix his Firefox. I'm posting here so I can hopefully get some more tips from all experts here.

Symptom: Firefox completely hangs when playing back Flash videos (eg. Youtube). You can usually still hear the audio in the background, but the video freezes, and indeed the entire UI freezes. You can't even click the red [X] button to close the window at that point.

Workaround: Getting the Windows Task Manager up and killing plugincontainer.exe makes Firefox respond again, showing the "Plugin crashed" box in place of the video, and you can finally interact with the browser again.

I've tried the following:

  • Ensuring that he's running the latest Firefox (8.0.1)
  • Upgrading Flash to latest version - same problem before and after
  • Upgraded the graphics card drivers to the latest version (it's a ATI Radeon HD 3200) - same problem before and after
  • Created a new Firefox profile - still the same problem
  • Made a clean install of Firefox by wiping the program folder - still the same problem
  • Created a new Windows login account - still the same problem
  • Tried in IE - it works fine!
  • Tried in Chrome - it works fine!

I'm suspecting that this is some sort of graphics driver/flash issue, but what really boggles my mind is that it works fine in Chrome, which (I think?) uses the same non-ActiveX version of the Flash plugin.

Another piece of evidence that I think points to the device driver: running Windows in Safe Mode actually makes the video play fine (although very very low fps).

Any clues, anyone? I feel like I've tried all possible troubleshooting steps!

So, Firefox has announced to drop NPAPI support at end of 2016. What would be an alternative for legacy sites?

For example, Google Chrome introduced Chrome Legacy Browser Support (Chrome LBS), that redirects sites using NPAPI technology. A list is maintained with the sites.

Even though, it's little more than a year since Firefox will be doing that, it's never too late to get started on something that effect the web.

Recently, for no apparent reason, Firefox has started crashing whenever I download anything. Whether it be me hitting save when saving an image, or downloading an executable from somewhere, it's always the same. Firefox immediately hangs and stops responding, forcing me to exit out via the task manager. No error report is created in about:crashes either. I have a similar issue in Chrome, where if I download anything it stops downloading with 0 seconds remaining and just sits there, however Chrome doesn't crash during. This issue is really debilitating to my workflow, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox using an executable I had to download and copy from another computer. If someone could help me with this issue, you'd be a godsend. Thank you for your time.

Followed the instructions provided here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/switching-chrome-firefox

My bookmarks were not imported. Also, do I not need to tag this so it's easier for others to find and limits redundancies?

Love the layout of Firefox and look forward to this being my browser. At least until Epic Privacy Browser gets it's stuff together.

Hello, I'ld like to imgrate from Chrome to Firefox. There is option to import my data, bookmarks etc. and it works fine, but only for my first Chrome profile. I have two profiles on Chrome, one for work, one personal and would like to import only personal data. Unfortunately, Firefox always import data from work profile, and there is also no option to select profile.

I tried to delete work profile and migrate then, but in this case, Firefox doesn't see my Chrome instance.

Hey, got some trouble while attempting to transfer my data from Chrome to Firefox.

I can import bookmarks via the HTML file but I wanna import everything else other than bookmarks too.

When I check the "Import Settings and Data" tab to import from another browser, Chrome isn't even on the list to import from, is this not supported anymore? Is there anything I can do?

Thanks in advance!

Both Firefox and Chromium-based browsers are laggy (but in different ways) on Linux but not on Windows on the same computer. I have done GPU and CPU benchmark tests on my PC and they seem to perform better on Linux than on Windows.

I have tried different distros and I seem to be having the same issues. Both of these browsers have hardware acceleration enabled. I have tried booting into the LTS kernel as well, still the same issue persists. I have tried different DEs and I have even used Wayland instead of X11 and there doesn't seem to be a difference. I have an Intel Integrated HD graphcs card and my Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2 in 1.
