Adobe Flash Player Making Firefox Crash/Hang

So, I've been having this issue for sometime now. I went through all the help pages, read through all the different ones on Mozilla support and Adobe's official forums, and I haven't been able to stop it from crashing.

It started around a month ago, and I've just been trying to deal with it, but it has gotten to a ridiculous level of hanging. It almost never crashes, but it hangs indefinitely making me have to end it in the process area of the Windows Task Manager. It hangs when I open a new tab, when I'm mid-video, when I just leave it for too long, and randomly whenever it feels like it. And each time it looks different.

I also have some of my most recent crashes here if they are helpful:

WOW long time Mozilla Firefox user, but new update just keeps getting better and better ( NOT!) It took away my icons bookmarks etc, and started giving me forbidden access errors for websites and would not let me open sponsor links in Amazon, and would not let me re- download updated yahoo tool bar, and I could go on and on, but the point is: this was NOT beta version, its the real deal and all it is ends up being more trouble than its worth! WHY oh WHY must Mozilla update and yet make it all worse for it's users? I spent hours trying to find work arounds, etc, and finally have been forced to go back uninstall it and install the Mozilla 35 version that might not be perfect, but it works and so does all my stuff work in it. The other thing, I do the syncing, but that does not help get anything back and I do the mozbackup ( software program) but it would not fix the issues Mozilla firefox 36 has.

So I guess like many others, I will have to wait around till its been out awhile and see if same issues, then go back to 35 if all else fails. This is why I stayed so long on FF 17 or 19 anything to keep from updating, but I know I know, its about security blahblah blah... so i finally break down and update, but always always always to my dismay it takes me hours to get things back or get them right or lose them altogether frankly I wish there would be no final update until testing is really done, i know you can't help what add on's etc we have as there are so many, but beyond those crashes or not working add on situations, there are problems with this update ( and so many of them) so can you please fix them before you put this stuff out there for us to use???

i have just figured out after searching, that it is not possible to change my email for my firefox sync. it is already a nightmare for me that nokia email provider just simply closes down my account which i use for EVERYTHING in my life... i have somany account to change the email in it, but firefox sync doesn't allow me to do that. i really don't want to lose any details of my mozilla settings, so will it be possible to keep it with a non-existing email? or is there a way to open a new account with a new email and merge my settings to it?

Pages with Arabic in <h1> elements display first paragraph incorrectly

I seem to be unable to upload screenshots, but a visit to this page will show my problem at a glance: http://www.moralintelligence.net/site/staff/abdel_irada.php.

Looking at the first paragraph of text, to the right of the drop cap, you will see that it's been floated right, stretching the page horizontally and bringing the end of each line of text to the edge of the screen.

This happens on several pages on my site, and apparently not to any others. What the affected pages have in common is Arabic in the <h1> element above the first paragraph.

Since Arabic text direction is predominantly R-L, I think the browser is applying that direction to the first paragraph and floating it to the *right*.

I have tried using several recommendations to correct this problem by tightly wrapping the Arabic in a "dir=rtl" span and then escaping by adding a "&lrm;" character immediately following the span. I have also tried backup recommendations offered in case the first ones failed. None of them makes the least bit of difference.

Meanwhile, the page displays properly in Safari 5.1.7.

Is this a Firefox 35.01 bug, or is there something I need to add to my code to get around this?

When I enter search terms into the Search Box, FF comes up with suggestions that don't work. Either they're wrong, or off-topic, or otherwise useless, and they're hard to delete or very difficult to change. FF wants to search only for what it wants to search for. How can I turn off the Search Suggestions? (The tick-box on setup has no effect). I just want to search on my terms, not Firefox's terms. Chrome's Search Box is excellent, but I don't like Chrome, so I've got to figure out how to get FF to search properly.

Possible adware/malware when downloading Firefox?

Hello,

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and already, I have had problems. I downloaded Firefox and opened it when the download was finished and tried to sign into my Google account, when a lot of random adverts appeard, and my anti-virus popped up blocking whatever it was. At this point I was really concerned as I had just completed a full system scan before changing browsers, and the scan was clean. I then looked at the Add-Ons, which I found two that I had never heard of. I'm not sure whether they were on my computer already or had been added as I downloaded Firefox. I'm confused as I have never seen the two Add-Ons before, not even in Chrome.

Both Add-Ons are disabled and deleted and as far as I'm aware, everything is running as it should be. However, I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this problem before, and if so, what should be done about it. I'm usually very careful when online, so I really don't know where these Add-Ons came from, or if they could be harmful.

Any help with this would be great!

This is a new problem, and I noticed a couple other people posted about it yesterday. I am having great difficulty reading text on most of the websites I visit. The fonts look like bleeding ink, and in many cases the letters look like they have small holes. I checked my font settings, and tried changing each thing one at a time, and since nothing made a difference I put everything back the way it was. I had set some font settings myself, and I thought maybe I should try the default fonts but can't find what they are.

Does this have anything to do with an update? The only thing I'm certain of is that I had a Windows update yesterday. I've uploaded a screen shot of some text, but it doesn't look the same in the capture as it appears on the website.

I currently have three dictionaries installed on Firefox (English (US), Hungarian and French). I use all three languages, so I do not want to delete any of them. However, I use English most of the time, so i would like this to be the default language. However, whenever I start typing, the spellchecker reverts to French, and i have to reset this manually every time I want to use English. i can't work out why "French" has become the default (it was the last of the dictionaries I installed). Does anybody know how I can set English to be the default?

In the past week or so, I've been having daily crashes with Firefox 35.0.1 after not having them, at all, for months. It doesn't happen on any particular sight, but it seems to involve how this version renders graphics. Sometimes, I'll be viewing a page and as a scroll down parts of the page black out and/or the graphics at the top repeat unto the bottom of the page as a scroll. Often, I just close out the page and then go back, but that doesn't always fix it. Eventually, the whole page crashes and I get an error asking me if I want to close out of plugin container afte the crash. This has happened while scroll down Flickr and on some newspapers I read online.

Is anyone else having this problem? It seems as if this is a problem with Firefox and not my computer. I've changed nothing on my system, recently, that'd explain this. I have no viruses or malware on my computer. All my plugins are up to date, and I even uninstalled and reinstalled Flash hoping that that would help. Could it be some of the add-ons I have active?
