Since upgrade, Firefox 20 and Adobe flash player 11 eat up all my CPU when playing streaming video

Win7 64 bit Firefox20 Adobe flashplayer 11 plugin

when streaming, Task Manager notes:

Flashplayerplugin__11__7__700__169.exe *32 -- uses 50% of CPU and higher

plugin - container.exe*32 -- uses 40% of CPU and higher

Using 100% of CPU results in choppy video. I do not believe this heavy CPU use was not the case before I upgraded from Firefox13 and Adobe flashplayer 11. I tried downgrading but this did not seem to make a difference.

Thanks for any help.

The PC hangs completely, no keyboard or mouse response. The system is very stable and never crashes when not using firefox. The only version which works without crashing the PC is 3.6.28, but this has a few rendering problems and some websites don't display properly. I have turned on crash reporting, but it never produces a report. I have done a firefox reset, but makes no difference. The system never stays up for more than 10 minutes. I have turned off hardware acceleration. What do you need from me to help identify the cause?

When minimized, after seconds, fx start to use 20%~50% cpu (out of 2 cores), and restoring fx window immediately brings fx cpu usage back to normal. This happens when no page is load. 1, I've tried new clean profile with no luck. 2, it doesn't happen 100% of time, but frequently. 3, memory usage keeps steady, so it doesn't seem like GC issue.

I have reset Firefox. I have reset to blank and to Mozilla as default. I don't understand your instructions about malware (but is it???) resetting and too nervous in messing up my laptop to try ! :(

I now detest Delta Search and want it totally removed forever.

Nothing gets rid of it.

My browser freezes then I get the error about adobe crashing. This has been happening for a few months now. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and adobe multiple times. I tried making a new profile for firefox also, but nothing has helped. This past week I have also been getting errors about the shockwave plugin crashing. I've tried malware removal, antivirus removal, but it's all coming back clean. I'm not sure what to do anymore.

First, I completely uninstalled firefox completely, including all reg entries I found. I am now still having the same issue pop up again. When I restart the computer my firefox 20.0.01 reverts to 20.0 for no reason. It will not open links from e-mail saying that I must restart to complete an installation or complete an installation. I need to fix this as some things will not work. I have at least one add-on that is no longer available and I would like to find a way to back up all of my add-ons so that I can format the hard drive if there is not a better solution. I am hoping that someone can help.

Image path displays instead of image

Firefox v20.0.1, Win7 32 bit. This web page ( http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/5336 ) does not display the "flowchart"image at the bottom of the page immediately following the text "The following is a map of other documents..." On a correctly working page, the image is a flowchart "navigation" image that opens new pages depending on where you click on it. In firefox only a box with an ftp path to the image is displayed in its place. I have seen the problem on other web pages as well.

Actions taken: The pages displays correctly in IE v10. This problem happens on one computer. Different computer, same firefox version displays correctly. Different computer older firefox version (v17?) displays correctly.

  • I have tried disabling all plug-ins and extensions.
  • I have created a new profile. Seems like the first time I did this, the page displayed correctly, but when I refreshed (F5) the image is gone and the ftp path box is displayed. Subsequently created new profiles do not display the page correctly.
  • I have tried resetting Firefox and the page still is not displayed correctly.

Troubleshooting: Ctrl-shif-K, opened the Web Console, cleared the console output, refreshed the page by pressing Ctrl-F5. The following is several lines following the first error on the console:

[09:12:29.360] Unknown property '-moz-border-radius'. Declaration dropped. @ http://zone.ni.com/widgets/share/addthis/1.0/css/share.css:11

Hi,

whenever i start a fresh Firefox Process and open Websites (example: g2play.net), Firefox will freeze for around 3 Minutes before the Website loads. This happens on a bunch of different Websites. Different browsers work fine (tried IE10).

What i have tried to fix this issue: - Disable all Addons - Disable Javascript - Start in Safe Mode - Clear all Files (Cache, Offline Data, everything) - Completely remove and install Firefox new - Create a new Windows user - Update all Drivers - Closing all the background programs i could close

Nothing fixed my Problem so far.

Computer Specs: Windows 7 64 bit SP1 updated to the newest versions AMD Phenom II x6 1100T - 6 core proccesor running at 3,30 GHZ noname 8 GB DDR 3 RAM ATI Radeon HD 5750 noname 2 TB Harddrive

Programs running in the background: Steam, Thunderbird, Avast, Winamp, Piclair, Brother ControlCenter3, Brother Status Monitor, Razer Lachesis 5600, AMD Vision Engine Control Center

I think (im not 100% sure on this) that the problem first appeared with Firefox 20.0.1. Also it only happens when loading that website for the first time, once its cached it doesn't hang anymore (i have my firefox set to clear the cache everytime the browser exits).

edit: it's not my connection, neither my DNS Server. I got a 100mbit connection running and i have tried to access the website directly over the IP but the problem still remains.

I have firefox 20.0.1

This iminent thing must have ridden in on some download but it is all over the browser trying to put up spammy stuff in facebook, gmail, pinterest. I t may be partially blocked by some other add-ons like adblock-plu or better privacy, but it is there creating spurious toolbars on all my social sites and with little popout side windows.

I ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing.

I tried to follow these instructions from http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-the-search-iminent-search-the-web-hijacker-virus/#Firefox to remove it: Step 1: Open Firefox, and navigate to Tools -> Add-ons (Ctrl+Shift+A). Step 2: Select Extensions and find the particular Search Iminent Search The Web Toolbar extension, and click disable and remove.

BUT the "remove" button was absent.

I tried to follow these instructions to remove Iminent cookie: How to block the Iminent.com cookie 1.From the Tools menu, select Options 2.In the upper section of the Options window, click Privacy 3.In the Cookies tab, click Exceptions 4. In the new Exceptions – Cookies window, enter Iminent.com in the Address of Website field and click Disable.

BUT there was no "cookie tab."

I have just got a new laptop running Windows 8, I do not use the start screen, I have downloaded Start Windows 8 and only use the desktop. I have downloaded Firefox and I am currently using vesion 20.0.1

I added MyWot and Adblock Plus and Downloader Helper.

Initially I was having a problem with the display of Cnet and the odd other site. I figured this was likely to be an issue with Adblock Plus, I disabled it on that site and it was fine. I then started losing the email functions in Yahoo mail, 'move', 'forward' etc. that run along the top of the inbox, and the drop down menu to log out woudn't show. I've since been getting problems with the display of other websites such as booking.com and now the Facebook log in page. By displaying incorrectly, I mean things appearing in line and in Times New Roman.

I have restarted with add ons disabled that didn't fix it, so I reset Firefox. This had the sites working. I reinstalled MyWot, restaretd, stillworked. Reinstalled Downloader Helper, restarted, still worked. I did not reinstall Adblock. I was using the Transport for London wesbite which was fine until I logged out and then that page appeared in Times New Roman too. The Facebook log in page is also broken again. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know my way around a computer to an extent but I'm not that techy. I've done the auto add information below, I don't know what most of it means (Avast plug in has been disabled through all this).

I have not been having these problems on my old XP laptop that I've still been using.

I have been experiencing this problem for a few weeks now and I've been searching the internet for an answer but I cant find any information about it anywhere. Basically this is what happens:

1. I'll go to some webpage, it doesn't matter which page or what website its on, it seems to happen randomly from time to time. 2. I'll notice that when I mouse-over any of the links on the page that the mouse doesn't turn into the little pointing finger, the mouse just continues to look like the regular arrow. 3. The first click I make ANYWHERE on the page will cause an ad to open up in another tab and it will switch to that tab. 4. I close the tab and go back to my original tab and the page works normally now.

I have removed or disabled all suspicious looking addons, and I have also uninstalled a program that looked suspicious. I also ran a scan with Malwarebytes and it found a few 'infections' but the problem persists even after removing them. I know that the ads aren't part of the pages I visit. For example I was filling out a job application for Del Taco or something and I had this problem on one of the pages. Also I run a website and it even happens on my own website sometimes! Also just today Firefox randomly shutdown for no reason at all, one second I'm watching a Youtube video, the next second and looking at my desktop. No error, no nothing. I restarted Firefox and It gave me the "Well this is embarrassing" page. Any help would be greatly appreciated. BTW I'm using Windows 7 64 bit

Hello.

I'm running Firefox version 20.0.1, and I can't login on certain websites. The login details are corect, since I can login using Chrome. This started after the update to that latest version of Firefox. I haven't installed any new add-ons before the update, or after it.

I cleared the cache (using Ccleaner and also from within browser's options), but that didn't solve my problem. I also cleared cookies, deleted browsing history, made sure I accepted 3rd party cookies. I also un-ticked the "I don't want to be tracked" option. I made sure that the sites I can't login into are not blocked from accepting cookies, or from anything else.

I have some add-ons installed (Ad-block, HTTPS everywhere, etc.), which I disabled one-by-one to see if they were causing problems, but with no success. Since I could login before the update, it's clearly not an add-on problem here.

Thank you.

Isn't there a way to Permanently Remove this Tab so it doesn't keep showing up on my Tab Bar?
