firefox freezes, suspecting flash plugin

Posted

I have uptodate firefox version 15.0.1 I think i have trouble with addon shockwave flash 11.4.402.265 Whenever i am on els.eu or youtube.com sites and have counter strike 1.6 steam running; after alt-tabing between cs 1.6 and browser, the firefox freezes - only thing that helps is ending process of flashplayerplugin or plugin-container through task manager It happens very often - like every second alt-tab

Chosen solution

I found a workaround. I just open a tab with www site non flash content - then alt-tabing between cs and browser (with non flash content open) does not cause firefox freeze

Does this happening when you not running counter strike 1.6 steam the same time? Maybe that's the problem.
