hi about 2 days ago ff stopped working. i type an address into the usual window like i've done a million times, hit enter, and nothing happens. i click on a bookmark, the url shows up in the address window, but nothing happens. there are maybe 3 bookmarks that still work, and all the rest are duds. auto-complete still works, but firefox refuses to take to the address. i get a lot of "flash crashes" (thanks, adobe) so i recently updated flash, and that started the problem. this is why i distrust updates. (for the record, i keep current with firefox updates, even though it is still bloatware that uses 2 GB just to run 3 windows. anyway, any help you could offer would be most... helpful! (not sure why my exclamation points are printing as open-brackets, but hey, whatever, that's the internet) thanks, tim

Hey, ive read some other threads but didnt notice anything that solves the problem. So yeah, recently, like 3 days ago or so, youtube videos started randomly not loading. I mostly use youtube to play music, got my own playlist, but now the songs try to load for like 10 seconds or so and then skip to other song. Tried playing a song not as a part of playlist, but a separate video. Tried to load, but eventually got error. On read more there were few suggestions, ive tried them all, nothing changed. Deleted cookies and cache. Tried playing firefox in safemode, then youtube videos work fine. btw, i guess i should mention, that i use adblock plus so that i could play the playlist and not get those 10 minute ads between every song. if i manually disable adblock, nothing changes mostly. Though 1 time the video started with an ad before the song but only once. if anyone could help me i would appreciate it. If u need any more info ask away :) (so far it seems like only videos from my playlist fail to load)

Firefox crashes frequently. Between crashes, I constantly get 'Shockwave player may be busy or not responding' warnings and everything stops for a while.

I think I've tried everything. Start up in safe mode, updated firefox and extensions and even shockwave and flash from Adobe and still does this.

Please help
