Radio Freezes While in Facebook App

Posted

I listen to the radio via Firefox in a separate flash window from my browser. However, when I enter into a Facebook app (e.g. Farmville), the radio freezes.

This also happens when I am running a video in a separate window.

I assume there's something keeping two flashes from running at the same time, but I have no idea what that may be. I know it is possible because I used to do it with IE.

First, try to reset Firefox. Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings. This simple step will eliminate many Firefox problems with only one click.

A few other basic trouble shooting things you can try is this: Run all Windows Updates, install all needed service packs, etc.

Update your graphics driver (Firefox uses your graphics card for some rendering, and an out of date graphics card driver can cause problems. Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL

Update all your plugins (Flash, Java, etc.): http://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/.

Thanks for the reply, but I've already tried all of those things (except adding MalwareBytes, but I'm covered in that area). I think this is a settings problem, I just don't know which one.
