Hi, it does look like a problem with Shockwave Flash, but first try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).

If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:

  • Click the menu button New Fx Menu , click Help Help-29 and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.

If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:

  • On Windows: Hold the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  • On Mac: Hold the option key while starting Firefox.
  • On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox -safe-mode
    (you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)

When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".

SafeMode-Fx35

If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps in the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.

To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If that doesn't help, try uninstalling Flash - see here.

Then reinstall - see here.

When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem.

This is not about disabling the Flash plugin, but about disabling a special feature called protected mode that is used by this plugin.

In Windows Vista and Windows 7 and later you can toggle this pref to true on the about:config page to disable protected mode in the Shockwave Flash plugin, so it is no longer needed to modify the mms.cfg file in Firefox 36 and later.

  • dom.ipc.plugins.flash.disable-protected-mode = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

See this article about protected-mode in the Flash plugin:

Did you already disable hardware acceleration in Firefox?

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

Look, thanks but I have no idea what you are talking about. I am not a technician, I am a simple laptop user. You are not helping me at all, just confusing the issue as nothing you are saying makes sense to me nor do I know how you are saying to do will affect my computer. And, I do not have the issues you have; The only issue I have is flash crashing when I watch TV online. If some Mozilla tech tells me to do what you say to fix the issue, then ok, I will BUT I do not know you from adam, so I am sorry, but I just won't as I once let someone "fix" my last brand new laptop and they messes it up so bad it had to be returned to the factory to be fixed.
