FF Performance and Adobe Flash

I'm having serious performance issues with Firefox. I have reset Firefox to try and address it and that didn’t help.

Pages take forever to load and the task manager indicates 50 – 75% utilization while FF struggles to load pages. This CPU action continues as long as the browser is running. The “Plugin Container for FF” in addition to “FF” itself is sucking up a lot of resources. If I kill the Plugin Container process, FF reports that Adobe Flash Plugin has crashed and certain pages load that wouldn’t load up to this point. There’s obviously something wrong in the flash. The task manager still shows a 50% CPU usage and the page loads crawl.

If I continue to kill the Plugin Container process, I can coax pages to load.

I'm running Adobe Flash version 25.0.0.171.

The plugins I'm using are:

OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. File: 1.6 Path: C:\Users\Elaine\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\s553bxtb.default-1494947582755\gmp-gmpopenh264\1.6 Version: 1.6 State: Enabled

I'm running Firefox 53.0.2 64bit on Window 10, Lenovo Laptop.

This problem just started recently.

I believe I'm running Firefox 32-bit on my 64-bit system:


Name Firefox

Version 47.0

Build ID 20160604131506

Update History

Update Channel release

User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0

OS Windows_NT 6.1 x86

Profile Folder

Enabled Plugins about:plugins

Build Configuration about:buildconfig

Memory Use about:memory

Registered Service Workers about:serviceworkers

Multiprocess Windows 0/1 (Disabled)

Safe Mode false

Profiles about:profiles


I'd like to try switching to Firefox 64-bit, since I've heard it might help with the continuous problems I've been experiencing with Flash. (Since the last Flash update, I've been totally unable to use it in Firefox, and have had to uninstall it. Though even before the last update, I've been having lots of hangups/problems with it, even on sites where it was disabled. Clearing the cache doesn't fix the problem and most other solutions are too complicated for me to understand.)

1. If/when I switch, will it keep my bookmarks, history, cookies, autofilled forms, saved passwords, profile, and whatnot?

2. If it doesn't work, can I safely switch back to 32-bit, and keep all the above as well?

3. Does it look like my computer will handle Firefox 64-bit okay?:


Windows 7 Home Premium

Service Pack 1


System:

Manufacturer: Samsung Electronics

Rating: 4.5 Windows Experience Index

Processor: AMD A6-4455M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2.10 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.46 GB usable)

After rebooting my laptop and reloading Mozilla Firefox the browser converted to a Spanish language version. This includes the tool bars, Help section and all. Despite multiple efforts to convert from Spanish to English format, I have been frustratingly unsuccessful. This also happened with Chrome but I was able to correct that browser. Help?

How to disable pdf documents from getting opened and stored as Firefix HTML Documents

Hi all,

Since a few days all pdf documents that I download (which is a fair few as I am an academic reading a lot of papers) get stored as Firefox HTML Documents and are stored with the mozilla icon rather than the simple pdf icon. While this might be useful for some - although i have no idea for whom - for me it's extremely annoying. I already managed to disable the plugin that automatically opens pdfs in firefox rather than in adobe acrobat, but still everything gets stored in this new way which truly serves no purpose. Every time i open a pdf now my mozilla browser automatically opens, only to give a blank page (as i disabled the plugin) and then adobe opens.

I absolutely don't see the convenience of this given that i need to download and work in the documents i want to read and not just simply scroll through them online. Any advice on how to delete the "Firefox HTML document" type completely and change all the documents that are stored as such back to normal pdf documents would be greatly appreciated. For reasons unknown all my pdf files on dropbox have magically transformed in this new Firefox filetype.

I hope there is simple and convenient way of changing this, else it will be the end of my days as a Mozilla Firefox user, which would be too bad.

I got a very official looking red screen with the Firefox logo titled "Urgent Firefox update". It had the normal looking opening file box asking me if I wanted to save the file: firefox-patch.exe, a binary file from https://ahghointernetno.net . I closed the window and started researching if this was real. I did make a print screen copy to WordPad but was unable to upload it here do to unsupported file type.

I've established an exception for the pop up blocker for a website. However, the pop ups I need are not coming up. When I hit the information bubble in the address bar, it says that pop up windows are indeed being allowed on the site, but they are not coming up when prompted. I already have tried with my AdBlockPlus disabled to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Somehow I managed to delete my recently bookmarked file. I have read the file on how to restore default folders. I've done this twice. It doesn't work. My recently bookmarked folder doesn't return. It's place has been taken over by 'Unsorted Bookmarks.' I'd like to have my recently bookmarked file back. I can't find a setting to do that. I am working with the most recent update of Firefox. (For a windows PC, version 10.) Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Is there any easy way around this problem? Thanks
