Firefox crashes

Posted

hi, i would like to bring to your attention a problem that i am having with firefox. It crashes every time i wnat to use youtube, or any other websites with videos. Even streaming is craching. I can't watch any of it. Plus, it does get very slow and and entire pages crash as well all the time. it has been like that for two days. Is it only an issue that you are having and will get fixed shortly, or is it not normal? For your information, i have checked my internet connection, and everything is well. i have also tried to surf the web on other browsers such as chrome and internet explorer and it works perfectly. I also refreshed and recovered firefox at its original settings, and it still crashes. Could you please help me, as i really don't want to give up this firefox browser which i 've been very satisfied with, until now.

Thank you very much in advance for your answer.

Regards.

Julien.

Adobe has released an update to 16.0.0.287 which fixes this issue. All users should update to the latest flash immediately. It isn't known how far back this hold exists, but at this time assume all versions are affected.
