When I try loading a web site, the FF doesn't load anything. If I move or press the mouse(or press a key on the keyboard), FF loads a small part and stops again, until the next mouse movement. After the site has loaded, if there are flash animations in the site, they don't animate, until I move/press mouse/keyboard. I noticed this while loading embedded.com, but this behavior is seen for all the sites. Only that on some sites, the flash animations play without a problem. On embedded.com(I've tested there mostly) when I right click on a flash movie, the site continues working fine - everything plays smoothly. But when I click elsewhere it all stops again. I have latest version of FF and Adobe Flash Player installed. WinXP OS with latest updates. I have not tried to restart my browser because I'm afraid this behavior will disappear - but it doesn't mean it won't happen again :)


This happened

After I open a few different pages or tabs within the pages, the plugin-container.exe max's my cpu usage and the system hangs horribly. It comes back and then hangs again. The plugin-container is reasonable new, because I don't recall seeing it in the Task Manager. Is there a way to fix this?? I know it's related to some apple piece of garbage software that I could totally do without if that helps.

Thanks

Despite following both Firefox and Flash directions, Firefox won't play videos from YouTube, Hulu, etc. They either never load or they load and freeze within seconds. Before I got the latest versions of Firefox and Flash, I did not have this problem. So there must be a problem in one or both of them. Since I understand from various websites that this is a widespread problem, can Firefox fix this? It's a major flaw in the latest Firefox version.

I just got my new laptop and installed FF, but some websites have scrolling issues.

I have already tried running in Safe Mode and the issue remains, so I assume the problem is not any of my add-ons. I have also updated my gc drivers and re-installed FF, but to no avail.

I do not have this issue when i use Internet Explorer.

I have the latest version of Firefox as well as Java. On Pogo.com some games play properly while others do not. The screen just has game loading. Now if I log into Pogo.com on Firefox in the safe mode, every game works properly. Pogo says it is a Firefox problem and I tend to agree. On the same computer I also run Internet Explorer 7.057 and have no problems with it on Pogo. However I do not like using Internet Explorer. I much prefer Firefox. Any suggestions?

I just upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8 and now every time I try to watch a video on a site like youtube the screen is black and it says 'an error occurred, please try again later.' But when I tried with a different browser called Galeon it played. If I clear the cache and then refresh the page it will play using Firefox, but isn't there a way to fix this? If it's a bug, when will a patch be out? Side Note: I use Ubuntu Linux, if that makes a big difference.

Every time Firefox opened

It has been some times that Firefox didn't keep the tabs I had when my last use. So, all the tabs were gone when I restart Firefox, despite that I already chose the 'save and close' option. This problem occurs now and then, about twice a month. Two issues raised; 1. Is it possible and How to retrieve those lost tabs, when I find the tabs are missing the next time when I start my Firefox? and 2. Can I myself fix this problem, or it is just can be fixed by Firefox ?

Firefox recently doesn't load pages anymore, or it loads them only partially. The startpage (google) is sometimes loaded completely, sometimes it appears only blank. If I go to other pages, FF aborts the loading process and only the background color is loaded, or it appears completely blank. But he states, that the page is loaded... The connection with IE works, and it seems, when I load some pages in IE and visit them after that in FF, a little bit more of the page is loaded. It is no problem with a firewall (since I am not running any, only a hardware-firewall). I have also created a new profile, and reinstalled firefox. Antivir is running but the problem remains when I deactivate its processes. It may have something to do with a virus, which I removed beforehand...
