How do I suppress "plugin container for firefox has stopped working" ?
I am doing some Flash programming and using Firefox to debug. Every time I end the debug session from Flash Builder I get the error "Plugin container for firefox has stopped working". Is there a way to suppress this false error message? There is not a problem with the container or any plugins, simply that Firefox thinks the container has crashed because it is being closed by the IDE. I have already had to change several options to suppress false error alerts, but just seem to get new ones like this.
Additional System Details
- Next Generation Java Plug-in 10.55.2 for Mozilla browsers
- Shockwave Flash 13.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0
"Plugin container for firefox .."
Are you sure that message is from Firefox, and not from Flash?
Maybe post a screenshot of that message for us to see?
It is best to use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed a maximum file size of 1 MB.
Then use the Browse .... button below the Post a Reply text box to upload the screenshot.
I am fairly certain it is the plugin container rather than Flash. I think the screenshot verifies this. This happens when i click Terminate in Flash Builder's debug perspective. If I try to close Firefox with the close button it sometimes hangs and this has caused Flash Builder to crash so I prefer to use the Terminate button. I am constantly debugging so it is getting pretty irritating!
Firefox uses the plugin-container process to run plugin out of the current Firefox process (Out-Of-Process-Plugins) and you may not see the plugin mentioned. Flash uses protected mode by default and that causes two plugin-container processes to be active.
You can check for problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions and try this:
- check for updates for your graphics drive drivers
- disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
- disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
