Firefox crashes

I have noticed that when using the games on abcya.com the games (Grade 2 Math games) will freeze when first starting the games, within Firefox. The only way to get them to work is use task manager to shut down FF and then start again or, strangely enough, to click at the very right end of the task bar (show desktop) then click there again to bring FF back up, and the games work.

This happens even in safe mode and even after updating FF, Flash Player, Shockwave and Java.

Why is this? When you have a room full of kids all complaining their game isn't working, it creates problems.

Please help! This doesn't happen on the dreaded IE.

Thanks.

I played a game, and had no problem.

Use this link to check that your plugins are up-to-date. If any are listed as unknown or research, do not worry about them.


check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
