Shockwave Flash is CONSTANTLY not responding and crashing

Hello there,

I've had this problem for a long time, and I've done most everything suggested in other forums regarding this matter. I've disabled "disabled protected mode, disabled hardware acceleration, made sure everything is updated, and nothing works. Unfortunately, this makes Firefox so unusable that I've had to switch to another browser for the time being, but it's having it's own issues. Very frustrating! I like Firefox and would like to have it working, but this "shockwave flash plugin" problem has been a persistent problem for the last year.

I've seen many other users who have not been able to fix the problem via the above suggestions, so--what's the verdict? Is there something else I can try?

Cheers

I migrated to Firefox to get an uncluttered homepage and have been very happy until now. However since today, when I open Firefox, the usual Firefox symbol changes to a poorly defined Firefox symbol, with a banner 'Click Me'. If I do this just four letters appear, nothing further. Also a robotic figure appears with an invitation to get the Humble Mozilla bundle and play on. I have tried resetting the homepage but it reverts to the unwanted one on restart.

Is this a Mozilla change or is has the page been hi-jacked.

I have an Aple Mac running OS X 10.6.8 with F-Secure security software.

Instead of emoticons, Firefox is showing me blank spaces all over Facebook (chat, status updates, comments etc.). I've tried to clean all data, I've restarted it, and it doesn't help. Only thing that's helping is when I downgrade to version 29, so it must be a bug. Currently, I'm using version 33.1.1, the latest one, on 64bit Windows 8.1.

Emoticons work properly on other browsers (IE, Chrome, Opera).

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

I needed to register to post a question etc on the Mozilla Community forums. The fact that I have managed to post this question obviously means I have succeeded. Whilst trying to find how to register, it was not easy, I found similar questions from other users who presumably were having the same problem as I was. There appears to be no register button on the sign in page which there usually is when registering on most sites. This led to me going around in circles until I eventually followed the correct procedure. Could it be made a bit simpler. I have only recently downloaded Firefox so I am I am still finding my way around.

Hello fellow-users of Firefox,

I followed the advice stated in the Support article about slowness, crashing, etc. by restoring Firefox to its default settings. But the problems didn't go away. The browser remains slow and still gives me error messages about a non-responsive script or plugin and crashes. To make matters worse I don't see the menu items on the top toolbar I was so used to using, like File, Edit, View, etc. I used the View menu very often to zoom in on texts too small for me to read. Now I can't do that. I tried to drag some icons from the menu on the top right-hand corner of the page onto the top tool bar above the address bar, but this is not the same as what I was used to using before, And there are no File, Edit, View, Tools icons in the menu. So now I'm seeing my g-mail inbox in tiny little characters. I tried using the magnifier suggested in the Troubleshooting page of Support, but it's too cumbersome so I gave up.

Would someone kindly please help me out on these issues? Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Tom Graciano (globmart)

Why is Mozilla doing buisness with Cisco Systems Inc., a known U.S. miltary contractor who helps the U.S. government sps on everyone???

Mozilla claims that they are dedicated to protecting our online privacy, rights and freedoms, yet they are apparently doing business with Cisco Systems Inc. Cisco is a U.S. military contractor for the U.S. Department of Defense (D.O.D.). They work with the N.S.A. and help them in their efforts to illegally and unlawfully spy on everyone. So why are they installing their OpenH264 "Video Codec" on our PCs as an add-on without providing us a way to remove it? I've already "disabled" it and "turned off" the automatic updates, but that's not good enough. This is SPYWARE and potentially MALWARE. I want this garbage off my computer COMPLETELY. How do I remove it? Disabling spyware doesn't actually disable it. Complete removal is the only solution.

Just like the last update to Thunderbird, with no changes on my system, the latest version of Firefox uses 100% of my CPU where it didn't before. I've run every test, disabled my anti-virus, run in safe mode and it makes no difference.

Since there was no useful answers when I posted about the TB problem, I doubt there will be any here.

Sorry Mozilla, but you're about to lose my support. I already moved away from Thunderbird. Now that FF has the same problem, I'm about to switch my browser to Chrome, even though it is not as good.

Yes I mean Mint.com. I found out that I have foxfire33. The block you describe is what is preventing me from logging into Mint.com. The message says Mint.com is dangerous. Dismissing the warning does not help. I have used Mint.com since it first was available and it is perfectly safe. How do I get Foxfire to accept it. I have a screen shot but don't know how to attach it here. I could email it if I had an email address.

I have had a Hotmail email address for some time and recently added an Outlook email address. Now I cannot access the Hotmail account - I'm automatically presented with the Outlook one. Same when I try to go to Hotmail.com. There is no such problem using Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, so I guess I need to change something in Firefox?
