Firefox crashes with javascript enabled, no matter if java is installed or not. Runs ok with javascript switched off in preferences

Posted

When i access a website with javascript ( i used http://www.gdv.de/ as a test site ) Firefox freezes and needs to be shut down by task manager. This problem started with Firefox upgrading to 16.0 or 16.1. I tried to reinstall it several times without success. Disabling java in preferences solves the problem. I tried uninstalling java completely, problem persists. When Firefox starts it opens one or two tasks called plugin container for firefox.

Hi,

You can try setting plugins.click_to_play to true in about:config and reload the page.

about:config Entries

The Config Descriptions add-on adds helpful source comments in about:config.

If the problem persists, you can reset Firefox, and check before and after setting plugins.click_to_play to true.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
