3.6.4 caches pages slow and crashes constantly while playing flash content. Also, not compatible with Real Player download plugin...nothing but problems since upgrading to 3.6.4. Multiple installs and un-installs and all the same problem with 3.6.4 very buggy version has been my experience. I've since downgraded to 3.5.10 and everything works okay with this version. I've experienced way to many issues in the past with newer versions of Firefox that I'm staying with the old version for now or will be using IE 8 more. Just to buggy to make it worth using at this point. I hope Mozilla figures this thing out soon.

Question owner

The thing is, Adobe Flash was crashing before 3.6.4 but it was taking down the entire Firefox browser with it which meant people couldn't tell what was causing the crashes. Now they can and even though it's clear what is crashing they're hopefully not just reporting this here, but to Adobe so more can be done to prevent the Flash plugin being so crashy.

Question owner

Same problem here. Can't watch videos on Hulu ever since the update. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling, and tried updating Quicktime player as well (just in case) Nothing works. Need a fix please.

Win 7, FF 3.6.4, QT 7.6.6, Flash

Question owner

It appears the way Farmville, Zoo, and Treasure Island are written might be causing timeouts longer than the 10 second limit Firefox 3.6.4 has given plugins to become responsive again. To change this to 60 seconds:

Enter about:config into the address bar, click through any warning page, then into the Filter box paste:


Double-click the line listing that preference to change it's value to 60

It seems it doesn't matter as since update for my plug ins firefox as a whole as slowed way way down and running resources like crazy. Need to fix this. I have been checking around for answers and dont seem to find an easy solution or update to fix this so ff is fast again. It also doesnt seem to be just when on a page with flash on it. It slows all pages down. Once have like 3 pages / tabs open. Fast computer to so this should be fast as heck like it normally is. Thats one main reason for firefox. Cause it runs fast but now slow as can be as of 3 days ago. I updated flash, all plugins and extensions but still slow.

Anybody have any fixes for this and my like posted issue please share. I will be creating a thread myself on this as well so can post there to if dont mind.

I have a problem with Treasure Island. The first screen displays correctly but when using the next link into treasure island the image is cut out on both the left and right sides. This means that the options at the top of the page are not accessible.

What do I need to check on to correct this please?

Will someone please tell me how to fix this??!! I have had nothing but trouble with Firefox since the last update, now this is even worse! What do I do to keep my games going on FB and stop all the goofy stuff happening with Firefox?
