I could not leave a web site advertising Free IQ Test. It would not allow Firefox to close. I shut down and restart my system, and Firefox opened at that web site. I finally removed and reinstalled Firefox. It would still open at that web site and not allow closing. I removed and put another browser, Midori, on my computer, so that I can use the internet. I want Firefox back.

HI all,

Any page I visit with a flash video of some sort causes firefox to lockup, youtube is just the most prevalent. The page loads, then the program compatibility assistant pops up. I can't download,cancel or close out of that window and I have to ctrl-alt-delete and shut down the plug in container manually to be able to continue surfing. I have tried all three options on the firefox support page, tried using both 3.6.6 and 4.0 Beta 1, updating flash, no joy on any of those attempts.

I can play videos using VLC normally and the video that starts up when I visited the 4.0 beta welcome page works fine if that helps any.

Can anyone help?

In my Win XP computer I have an administrator account and a normal user account. Since a few days, certain websites (e.g. mail.yahoo.com) are very slow. Same websites are OK when I am in administrator account.

Found and removed a few viruses but nothing changed. Also removed firefox and reinstalled without success.

Another observation is that, sometimes plugincontainer.exe is crashing.

I have FF 3.6.6 and Flash 10.1. When I enter a site the entire computer hangs. The mouse operates but I cannot go to another site, leave the browser or even bring up the Task Manager. The entire PC is hung. This lasts 45 seconds of course and then everything is fine. Is this how the plugin containment code is really supposed to work?

I updated to the latest version of Firefox last night as I needed to do some testing for seesaw and firebug wasn't compatible with the older version I had.

Since then whenever I visit forums there are no new post notifications. Even though there are posts that have been done since my last visit. For example on WoW forums the little dots next to the threads are all blue even though there are new threads or posts which should show red, on a reptile forum the visual representation of a white lizard is not there.

It is not just these two forums it is every forum I go to.

I did try search but with so many results I couldn't find one that matched, I may have missed it in the list and will be the first to admit that I can do that even when something is staring me in the face. As such forgive me if this has been covered.

If you need any further information please ask.

Why is firefox not working on blogger website?

On certain websites such as blogger and google translate and www.halolz.com the background goes away and the sidebar goes before everything else at the top and it's just a simple text with some pictures. On the website listed below it's just the header text and that's it.
