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.

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!!

Every now and then, while either watching any sort of video or stream, my player will freeze, then follow with a dialogue box prompting myself to either Continue or Stop Plugin. When I hit Continue, it gives itself sometime, and then the dialogue box pops up again. I have already turned off the acceleration option for Flash, I have made sure my plugins were all update, and, when checking for crash reports, none of which start with "bp", which I have seen suggested to be provided in other threads for similar problems.

This happens anywhere from every hour to every 3 or 4 hours, seemingly random.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

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!

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.

A year ago, I had a video freezing problem. disabling hardware accelorator appeared to work, but doesn't work now for same exact problem. tried other solutions that were suggested a yer ago. Nothing work. It appeared that the video problem fixed itself. This is very fustrating that this is happening again and makes me believe that firefox never solved the initial problem after a year

I have normal sound in Firefox and get the incoming call tone, but when I click on the green 'answer button I get a small picture of myself (which is very slow to react to camera input) and I get no picture or sound from the caller.

I'm using Firefox v34 on Linux Mint v17 XFCE 32 bit on a HP Compaq D530 Pentium 4 2.8 GHz with 1 GB of ram. Skype Linux works as expected.

Hello,

Been using Firefox for years and refuse to switch to Chrome, but it gets kinda frustrating atm and im leaning towards Chrome lol...

If my firefox version is open longer then 24 hours, and there is a flash item in it, it will eat resources till my computer almost dies. Its open for +24 hours now. And Firefox.exe eats 1,2GB memory and 11% cpu

Firefox is open 2x with 20 tabs? I dont really care about the memory or cpu usage, but i do care about the. For instance, if its open longer then a few hours and i watched some flash stuff, i open a small youtube clip on the left, and scroll on facebook on the right screen the small clip is all stuttering etc.. and if that gets as bad, Scripts will be stopped by firefox, Flash does exactly the same.

So if i let my pc run if i go to work and come back with 10 tabs open, the browser is just laggy and not ok to work with. Tho better hardware does "solve" it, but thats a 8 hours ++ kinda.

My personal pc at home: i3 4310 with 8GB memory and a SSD. Win7 At work: i5 2500k 8GB and a SSD. Win7

Im kinda "home" to computers, as i work daily with them / solve problems with them bla bla..

It just seems to get more regulair with the trouble with Flash and Firefox. Tho i love firefox.. :( This is a problem getting bigger every quarter of a year for the last 3 years.

If i close firefox and restart its okay again for a few hours.. and then its crashing scripts and flash again, Im not putting this on Firefox, but i wanna know where this is going wrong. Ive got the same problem everywhere, i tried full resets defaults. I scanned my PC for spyware with MBAM, Combofix, SuperAntiSpyware.. And i even reinstalled my complete Windows installation at work a few weeks ago because of it.

Hope this is enough information..

Thank u.

Since the latest update to version 35, many sites that use javascript to manipulate images tend to crash firefox and make either the guilty tab or all of firefox close suddenly. (Firefox on Debian 7 Wheezy Linux, all updates current). I use firefox daily for web development and this regression bug is VERY annoying for my workflow. I understand you cannot take every situation into account. I do not have the time to investigate what has made Firefox less stable. I really hope you can fix this performance problem. If I can do anything concrete to help besides jumping into the code, let me know.

MP4 video problem in Firefox 35.0.1

Hi Everyone,

I see that problems with MP4 playback are fairly common but I couldn't find a solution to my problem in any of the several questions and answers I've reviewed.

When I comment out the OGG code at http://www.deiryassin.org/video.html I cannot get the MP4 file to play. The OGG file play back in Firefox is just fine. Someone else who uses the latest version of Safari for the Mac OS was not able to get reliable MP4 playback, either. Per w3schools.com, MP4 is a supported fiie type in both Safari and Firefox.

I don't know how to embed HTML in this question so please see the attached PNG file for the code I used for testing MP4 playback. The MP4 file location is correct and the file is not corrupted, it plays fine when I download it.

When I try to play it in Firefox the browser console/error log says: "Specified 'type' attribute of 'video/mp4' is not supported. Load of media resource /media/deiryassinremembered.mp4 failed." The browser displays: "No video with supported format and MIME type found".

Here are the codecs for the file: Codec: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (avc1) Codec: MPEG AAC Audio (mp4a)

The following lines are in my .htaccess:

AddType video/mp4 mp4 m4v AddType audio/mp4 m4a

I've re-enabled the OGG source for visitors to the site. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

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?

when I view a video on Firefox, it stops to buffer. The problem started when Firefox updated itself about a week or so ago. Before the update the videos on Firefox ran good with no buffering issues. Now it take up to 5 minutes to view something. Even the commercials will stop to buffer. How can I get this fixed?

When I play any type of media such as a you tube song, or media from a news source, it plays very badly skipping, running slow, or even hanging the browser. When I run any media on Internet Explorer it runs perfect so I have to go to IE if I want to hear something perfectly. So far I have tried every suggestion and nothing works. Does anyone know how to fix it. BTW...I do have an IE tab set up in Firefox and if I run something in that tab it usually plays ok but not always. I hate to keep switching browsers just to hear something that will play right and I am running the latest Firefox update

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.

Streaming video crashes. Sometimes they will play for awhile then crash or Flash crashes from the onset.

I have the latest version. I have started in Safe Mode. I refreshed Firefox. I have unchecked the USE HARDWARE ACCELERATION WHEN AVAILABLE box in preferences, and in the little Flash box thing.

Nothing has worked. Is there something I have overlooked?

Thank you
