The problem is flash player, update your flash player..

Please check if all your plugins are up-to-date. To do this, go to the Mozilla Plugin Check site.

Once you're there, the site will check if all your plugins have the latest versions. If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.

To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.

Question owner

The update page says that Flash Player is up to date. I downloaded an update for Java and installed it, but Firefox says that it is outdated, even though it shows the previous version that i had installed. IT crashes when I try to go to the Yahoo home page, as well as when I try to go to the add-ons page.

Firefox v17.0.1 continuously crashes or stalls especially when left "alone" and then I come back to it and it is dead in the water. The screen is frozen to where I have to kill the process to regain control of the computer.

Here are the last 5 reports:

Hi Fedora13

Do the crashes still happen in Safe mode?

Safe mode disables the JavaScript JIT compiler.

Hi kiaya611.

Could you please start a new thread for your question as you likely have a different crashing problem?

Then you can provide more information like your operating system and installed extensions and installed plugins.

Hi mkillerbunny

The crashes are caused by Norton software like Norton Confidential or Norton Identity Safe as can be seen by the coFFPlgn.dll or couictlr.dll in the crash signature of the crash report (bug 783369).

You can disable Norton extensions/toolbars in Firefox to see if that helps.

Hi johnrobert76

That looks like a problem with the Flash plugin.
You could try older versions of the Flash plugin to see if this is still happening.

Hi 76peanut

Your crashes are caused by the drivers of your graphics display card.
You appear to have two display cards installed.
