Firefox repeatedly freezes after 30 minutes or so of use, and strangely when freezing it shows a blank page but with freeze frames recently opened YouTube videos and other flash objects, although it may not be all specific to flash. I can't remember exactly but there may have been some non-flash things showing too, but as far as I'm aware it was flash. It keeps doing this repeatedly and finally crashes. If I could give a number of how many times I've had to go through these repeated crashes, they have happened about 500-1000 times in the last 6-ish months. I can't go a day without them. They happen numerous times a day.

And here's the bit that stumps me. I've did the normal extension troubleshooting procedure, but even when every single plugin has been disabled at one point, it still crashes, so no extension can be the problem (also these crashes started about a year ago and the plugins and extensions hadn't been causing many problems before then). I also tested plugins, disabling any I didn't need and thought could be causing a problem, but it still crashed. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled flash, and updated it numerous times in the hope that the crashes would stop. But they haven't. I have EVEN switched from Firefox Beta (which I was in when it started) to Firefox (which still caused crashes) and now to Aurora, which, as you guessed it, STILL causes crashes. I can be on any page at all and it will crash. I have sent hundreds and hundreds of angered crash reports, no update or fix has been given that has helped the problem. I'm pretty desperate for answers at this point.

Below are all the crashes that have happened this month.

Please help, thanks.

Hello There. To my utter dismay I am forced to use Chrome to access this forum. The reason is the moment I use Firefox (3) my computer crashes and I get the dreaded windows blue screen. I have been using ff for a long time now without problems. Yesterday I updated adobe flash player, but have now uninstalled flash player in the hope that the problem is resolved. No luck. I can use my computer in normal manner without problems, but the moment I use ff it crashes

firefox hangs after last updates regularly, after closing down with task manger the msg "plugin container for firefox stopped working" appears. other problem after last update occurs when i open firefox - nearly always it shows the msg "Well, this is embarrassing. Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened web page." No matter if I open firefox completely new or if I do it after closing down via task manager. (virus scan is running on a daily and detailed on a weekly basis)

I cannot seem to see certain websites "full" site. On Ebay...I only see text all piled up on left. If I click thru enough I can see an image but I want the full site. Not the second class citizen version. Also same with Netflix. Amazon is great. I've troubleshooted and cleared cookies and cache. I reset and now I'm using safe mode with add ons disabled but still nothing helps.

BTW...I'm very untechnical. Im using a laptop with Windows Vista OS if that helps.

Id also like to be able to use my amazon prime account to stream videos but naturally nothing shows up.

Please help. SOS.  : )

I've gone through all the suggestions, troubleshooting listed here and nothing has worked in stopping this "hanging" business. It started earlier this week with FF16. So I tried uninstalling, clearing out any traces of it, profiles and all. R-installed with the previous extensions, plugins and scripts. Still did it. So I either disabled or uninstalled said add-ons. Still did it. Upgraded to 17, then 18. Same problem. "Not responding" every couple of minutes for just a few seconds, longer when I switched tabs. I'm a heavy tab user, but given the problem, I've gone down to no more than 3 open at the same time. Still hangs. So I decided to do a complete overhaul. Did a reset. I even thought it was my computer (Vista with SP2) which had been working fine and was slowing down around the same time FF was hanging and being a resource hog.

With FF uninstalled, with the help of Microsoft support, I worked on the laptop. Uninstalled my usual programs, including AV (which had avast). Moved all my files to an external hard drive. In essence leaving my computer with bare bones. Did a defrag and a system restore. I reinstalled av, then ran it. All clear. Ran malwarebytes. All clear. Ran registry clean. All fine. So I reinstalled FF18 and did not use any add-ons. Still hanged. Went up to FF19 beta thinking whatever but there is, would be cured. And it worked fine witn no add-ons. So I started installing my usuals, but leaving only the most important ones, ABP, No Script. Was ok so I added greasemonkey, smartest toolbar, download statusbar and unhide passwors. All which I've used for years with no problems. And FF19 worked fine with no hanging for like a day and a half. Today, (jan 24) not only is it haning and not responding again, but it's doing it more frequently and for longer.

FF never has crashed, it just hangs and freezes. My job is ALL online. I don't like Chrome (not user friendly to me). I'd rather avoid using IE. I'm a user of FF since day one, but this is stressing me out because I cannot do my job properly.

What can I do to make it stop? My only other option is to just forget FF and try and get used to Opera.

Now that I think about it, could this hanging problem be related to the Java issue that has come out publicly recently?

I don't know what else to do. I've tried everything that has been written here. Trust me, I've wasted 2 days on this issue. Time I'll never get back and I could've used to do work.

Thanks

Hi I am in the same situation as many others I have seen posting here. Shockwave flash is continually crashing to the extent it takes several minutes to get to the add-ons manager and disable shockwave flash. I have reinstalled all adobe plugins, so they are up to date. I am having real problems accessing a lot of web pages/web page content because with shockwave flash enabled firefox is all but frozen and with shockwave flash disabled a lot of web content isn't available.

I have looked at other threads that I found and have attempted all of the suggested solutions and have selected the Troubleshooting Information option below this text box. I have a huge list of crash reports, unfortunately I am not sure how to load them

Any suggestions appreciated

Regards.

Google Translation (embedded into a website) was working a few days ago but now, error code is received. (Error: The server could not complete your request. Try again later. ) Only happens when using Firefox. No problems with IE. Is this a problem with Google Translate or with Firefox? This is not only happening on my computer but several other people's as well.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Not sure, within the last few days starting around May 12, 2010

I got following problem even one just encountered before sign in.

1. I want to sign in clicked on I already have an account but did not work and have to click on Signin/Register tab any way my main problems.

2. When I get an e-mail and if there is url link even I click it won't open rather return to same page. To open link I have to right click and chose open in new window.

3. On website, if there is a slide show (ex. such as health/food related with photo and text) which need to click Next to read next details, if I click on next it won't work.

4. Recent experience, on Yahoo web there is an online contact form, I have to choose topic/categories/subcategories. I can enter information in one or two fields but next field do not open even I click on them.

What could be the cause of above problems?

Regret to say if I use MS IE 9 I do not face above problems I have tested my self. From MS IE I have moved to Firefox and want to keep using it.

Since updating firefox to 5.0 it has been freezing and not responding every day. Now it is updated to 6.0 and still doing it. After a few hours of use it will just hang and say not responding. If I open tcpview, I don't see anything strange in the processes but then it starts responding again.

About 60% of the time if I load the login to google adsense it will do this again not responding. Many times when it does this you can see background content from other tabs or even a video that was closed in a previously opened tab.

These updates don't seem to be helping anything with this problem.

So...I checked my plugins this morning, and it said both my Java platform and my Java Deployment Toolkit needed updating. However, I click Update, and the link does not lead me to a download page. Plus, when I try to verify my Java version on the Java page, it says that I have the recommended Java installed (and so do other sites that run on Java). How do I update these things so that everything is up to date?
