Hi, This is the last crash report that I have, it happened a few minutes ago. I've tried usig Firefox in the Safe mode already but nothing seems to solve the problem. Can anyone help me please?

Btw, keep in mind that I'm not British or American please ^^

Chosen solution

I had tried everything until i actually gave up and restarted Firefox (something that i actually didn't want to do since i had around 300 bookmarks and i had to save them to a paste outside my Firefox profile) but that seemed to do the trick.

Thank you anyway jscher2000, for answering and givingme alternate solutions for my problem.

Take care, Diana.

Some systems suffer Firefox crashes due to the Flash player plugin's protected mode feature. The following pages/posts provide different ways to disable that feature:

Flash needs to completely unload from memory (restarting Firefox might help) before this would take effect.

I realize these are complicated articles. This problem has existed since Flash 11.3, so you probably can find similar resources in your preferred language if you search for them.
