I tried disabling firebug and it still crashed. I also tried removing firebug and tmz.com still crashed.

I'm on 25 Beta getting the same.

I disabled all addons but it still crashes when I visit TMZ.com

The only way I can read that site is to disable flash. I confirmed that I am running the latest version of flash.

To cybervibin

Might be a simple solution to you but for me its a big deal. Deleting the profile and resetting all my addons, bookmarks etc is a big deal.

Hi KamWest, this is some standard guidance that addresses the most common issues with Flash. I'm sure you've seen some of it before, but just in case:

(1) If you use any recorders/downloaders that interact with Flash media, make sure they are as up-to-date as possible, or disable them temporarily.

(2) Disable hardware graphics acceleration in Firefox and in Flash

(A) In Firefox, un-check the box here and restart:

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced > General > "Use hardware acceleration when available"

(B) In Flash, see this support article from Adobe: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues

(3) Disable protected mode (on Windows Vista and newer)

See this support article from Adobe under the heading "Last Resort": Adobe Forums: How do I troubleshoot Flash Player's protected mode for Firefox?

Hi ecalderon9, thank you for the crash report. It has a link to the bug tracking system indicating this will be fixed in Firefox 27, and is under consideration to fix in Firefox 25 and 26 (it's not too late for that).

The problem seems related to how Firefox interacts with accessibility software. For example, the developers could trigger the bug by running the Windows 7 "Narrator" while visiting TMZ. If you use reader software, you might see whether you can turn it off just for this site until the bug is fixed.
