Have trouble when navigating facebook. Mozilla hangs for 5 to 6 seconds, freezing every mozilla tab or window that is open and sometimes crashes.
On facebook I get the "script is taking too long" message but I suspect that it has something to do with flash cause from time to time I get the plugin container failed related to flash and some other weird behaviour with flash (see below)
Things I tried: - Disable every plugin. - Running safe mode - Refresh Firefox - Disable hardware accelleration on the flash plugin - Disable safe mode for Flash plugin
- Completely uninstal flash according to this procedure: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html
I am running a recently freshly instaled win 8.1 on a 12GB RAM i7 quad processor.
The thing that makes me suspect is that according to this link: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues
When I right click the flash logo for that procedure, Mozilla freezes, nothing gets displayed and some seconds later I get a "Shockwave Flash might be busy... stop plugin..." message
This is very annoying and I want to use Firefox but have been forced to chrome lately cause I cannot find this problem.
Please, any help is appreciated.
Here are the latest crash reports: 659c09f3-507d-405f-9cd0-1f0c9a547a19 09ccdcbd-2de6-402b-8cb0-634bb8603bdb 2d10bc5d-3073-4458-9a95-209fe02f61da d513670f-868d-4eea-94d7-4e1356e64d15 ab5ebd92-2222-46e9-bb58-6e42c866f6aa ff05371d-73ac-414c-90d6-47fa2b86843f bp-86a63769-b972-472f-a5de-f74a82150211 bp-b9c1a916-0d26-443e-ade4-1c6a72150211 01e304b4-fd28-475e-9f8b-d8e87f78b366 73332da1-7361-4b6e-a0be-92f1f4e81d84 4bfbbf4c-7b4c-4a32-ace6-a782bc7f2f1c 095b8fc3-47bc-454d-a1be-85f418e0205d cbf2cbc3-c304-4f7b-beb1-ed6f59dd693e b12aeae2-1ceb-406b-a869-2522c477f60d e7894ad7-1bf8-4df6-a87d-5a7055fd475f

Every time I go to watch a YouTube video, it takes forever for the video to begin playing. When it does finally start, the quality is often very low, at 240p or 144p. I also have Chrome and Safari installed on my laptop and they do not have any problems playing videos. It is only Firefox. Also, I do not have this problem on my family's laptop, which runs Windows. It is only on my Macbook Pro.
Also, sometimes, various websites take a very long time to load, but this is not nearly as frequent as my problem with YouTube videos.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, starting in Safe Mode, disabling various add-ons and plugins, clearing browsing data, and nothing has worked.

A friend of mine asked me to help him out with this and I'm sorry to say, I'm stumped. He's got a Windows 8.1 system (full version, U.S. not K or N), this is his regular office computer (he's the manager at a Electrical Contractor) and he watches Weather.Com and it's videos to try and plan for any snow closings. At some point, the videos on Weather.Com stopped playing and all they show is a black window on the page where the video should be playing.
There was another thread (archived now) about this problem on FireFox 25 (he's using the latest 35.0.1 and the latest Flash player 220.127.116.115) and I tried several of the suggestions in that old thread: First FireFox has minimal addons, uses the Noia Fox 3.0.1 theme and that's it; plugins listed are OpenH264 Video Codec; Shockwave Flash 18.104.22.1685; Adobe Acrobat 22.214.171.124; Google Earth Plugin 126.96.36.1991; Google Update 188.8.131.52; iTunes Application Detector 184.108.40.206; NVidia 3D Vision 7,17.13.4411; Picasa 220.127.116.11 and that's all, no AdBlock Plus or anything else. I tried FireFox in safe mode and still couldn't watch; the driver for the nVidia 610 graphics adapter was slightly out of date and I updated it to the latest 347.52 and that made no difference.
Does anyone have any idea's?
I did some basic scans to see if there were viruses or malware with TDSKiller, Malwarebytes and Spybot Search & Destroy and they turned up nothing other than a few tracking cookies.

While on facebook, if I watch one or 4(Random number) videos using facebooks own player, not youtube, or scroll down my frontpage wich usually have a large number of videos, firefox connection to the net seem to be lost. When this happends, whatever webpage I try to access in Firefox just gets a "Loading" status in the tabs bar.
Only fix so far is to close and relaunch Firefox.
When doing that, I also find that XMark Sync has lost connection and can't sync up.
While this happends, I have tried IE, Chrome and several chat softwares, like Skype, and these function as supposed to. So the issue is somewhere in Firefox.
The reason I point towards Facebook videos(html5?) doing something to Firefox, is that so far this has only happened while on Facebook, and while watching, stopping, switching to HD, skipping forward/back or scrolling past videos on the frontpage(These autostart when they are "front").
This happends at random, but alot, so much I have pretty much stopped scrolling the front page or looked at videos posted on facebook.
I am stumped.

Suddenly I am finding that when playing Youtube videos within Firefox I get a message saying the Adobe flash plugin has crashed.
Everything was fine yesterday although I noticed that it is when I am playing lower resolution and poor quality videos on Youtube.
I have the latest version of Firefox on a Mac Retina and have disabled the hardware acceleration but still the problem occurs.
I have also rebooted my Mac several times as well as closed and opened Firefox each time I make a change. I have also uninstalled flash and reinstalled but to no avail.
As I said above this appears to crash when playing older lower quality videos. Newer, higher resolution videos seem OK.
I have tried playing the videos causing the issue in Safari and they play fine. It just seems to be Firefox.
Anyone else experienced this and can provide an answer to resolve?
Thanks for your help.

I have a constant problem with shockwave. I have shockwave flash 15 plug in installed and am using FF 33.0.2 I constantly get a message that shockwave flash maybe busy or may have become unresponsive. It completely freezes up my Firefox. So I cannot watch any videos using Firefox. Everything works perfectly on Chrome. I have tried all the solutions previously suggested such as disabling hardware acceleration but nothing helps. I am ready to absolutely ditch Firefox..... This is so frustrating..

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?

Mediaite (this page for example http://www.mediaite.com/tv/foxs-gretchen-carlson-opens-up-on-time-spent-backstage-with-cosby/ ) as well as other sites are locking up in the new version (39) of FF on MacBook Pro OSX 10.8.5. Restart and FF safe mode didn't help. Sometimes it hangs for a minute or so, other times it's a full page lock. This page simply hangs for a few seconds ( http://www.bakersfieldnow.com/ ) which makes you wait longer on pages that are truly locked.

Some internet video players give you a hint saying to press Esc to exit full screen. I think that the video players that do this use a Mp4 video formats, my problem is that the video goes back and forth between the next and previous frame of the video. he video advances but it has to jump some frames to catch up after going back and forth the sound doesn't jump or gets choppy the sound works fine its just the video. I updated Firefox, Java, and Flash Player but it dint help I works smoothly on Google Chrome.

Firefox is my default browser and I've been using it without issue for many years. Recently it has stopped playing the flash games on Lumosity properly. They previously worked without issue but are now jerky, skipping and missing frames making it impossible to use the browser for their site anymore. The site loads and plays fine on other browsers (IE&Chrome), and FF players other similar websites and flash games seemingly without issue. I waited a couple months hoping an update to the site, the flash player, or the browser would iron out this issue but it hasnt. Lumosity's site support has been less than helpful and basically consists of trying to get me to abandon FF in favor of chrome. I am a fairly knowledgeable computer user, and have tried a wide variety of fixes from various sources to no avail. So I'm hoping you can help me solve this issue finally.
I'm on a Vista system (for better or worse) with FF 37.0.1 (the issue has been happening since atleast V34. I have the following extensions: Adblock plus, Ghostery, HTTPS-Everywhere, NoScript, & I use CCleaner (I've tried solutions turning each of those off individually, or all at once with no improved results) All of my software, extensions, plugins, etc are all up to date and working fine.
If you have any questions or need further information please let me know. I'm hoping not to have to abandon Firefox. Thank you.

FireFox 28.0 Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0
Just installed Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS on an ancient one-time XP machine.
Everything is fine until I try to play a video - doesn't matter which one, youtube for example. The page loads perfectly well EXCEPT for the video. The cursor in the area of the video is the 'hand/fist with pointing finger'. All thumbnails and other images load OK
This is very frustrating as I am trying to instal speakers on a silent motherboard with cmos battery on the way out!!
Facebook videoplayer doesn't load, only Facebook and only on Firefox - other flash videoplayers on Firefox do work, Facebook video on other browsers do either.

Whenever I enter full screen on any video (yt, and other video formats) it crashes everytime...EVERYTIME I click away from it weather it be on a different window windows task bar anything outside the video. It crashes even if I use shortcuts to get to a different window. Why is it doing this? I get no crash report my computer just freezes and then I have to go into task manager and end tasks and restart firefox. It is really annoying because I have 2 monitors and I can't do anything else without firefox crashing. Any help would be AWESOME! :)

Hi. I am using FF33.0 and if I watch Silverlight videos I can't minimize or change the tab without getting sound problems. It sounds like video would slow down and thus distorting the sound.
The sound stops distorting after 30sec-5min after the tab is changed or window minimized. If I change it back to the tab where Silverlight video is playing and the sound is distorting it stops immediately.
I have tried to reset FF and uninstall and re-install.
The problem is limited to FF only. Chrome and IE work fine.
Thank you for any help!

i posted this issue 2 days ago with no resolution si here it is again
using windows 7 - this started because i keep getting adobe crashes in IE and firefox only when playing one particular game - the game loads but as soon as i left click the crash occurs.
i have uninstalled and reinstalled flash, java, the game and updated the graphics driver - i couldn't figure out what type of sound card i have to update those drivers - the info i have on their ID'S are -
Where can i download an update because when i let windows search for one - it came back as not needing an update
Some suggested a dll file was the culprit but i ran sfc/scannow and there were items that couldn't be repaired - they included in their names:
these i believe are related to java issues that the uninstall and reinstall of java apparently did not fix so not sure what to do about this
bottom line i don't know the cause but i need to fix this and will appreciate assistance

After updating to Firefox 14 and to the 11.3 flash Firefox will hang on every flash website I try to view on a Win2008R2 server.
I can reproduce this on several machines after installing the latest Flash update and it does not repro if I disable the flash plug in.
I have already tried completely uninstalling everything from scratch on this server with no results, including deleting all files related to flash and FF.
