My desktop runs windows 7 with 8gigs of ram.

I use both a PC and Windows box. FireFox in windows is becoming a disaster. I don't know when things went south, all due respect Moz there's something wrong when Seamonkey and Icedragon that use your 24 era code aren't quite as bad in terms of stability.

I have a long list of issues with FireFox now. Maybe someone can enlighten me. -Javascript now constantly hangs usual culprit is anything in the google ecology. Though anyplace with popups, adds and what not will cause "javascript failed" -Sability is use is inordinately bad after version 24-26. For example if I'm with one tab on gmail,another on Spotify or Youtube for music/ambient sounds(for example), and a third someplace else for concept art and research, it will bomb. It's a matter of when not if.

-A cursory search in the forums shows these kinds of problems have repeatedly been reported.

Here's the iNteresting question: How is it Saffari or SeaMonkey can handle a scant 4 tabs for routine work? Yet FF On windows can't?

Firefox was first installed by another administrator. But wasn't working. I didn't remove it, just installed another version. After that, it crashes every time I'm trying to start it.

What I did: 1. Uninstalled Firefox using standard Windows via Programs & Components in Control Panel 2. Removed Firefox Profile 3. Removed Registry settings associated with Firefox

Another details of my set-up:

1. McAfee antivirus is disabled 2. SRP is disabled

The latest crash ID is: bp-7b3a2e15-52b5-4407-874d-0b8122141014

Nothing unusual in Events Viewer.

Platform: Win 7 Pro 32bit. Thanks

Flash animation doesn't display on firefox

I have three flash banners embedded with swfobject in a javascript slider (jquery bxslider plugin). Each banner has three ActionScript ExternalInterfaces:

  • calling restartBanner() from JavaScript restarts the animation so that I can restart it whenever the slide is selected
  • calling stopFlash() stops the animation
  • on the last frame of each banner, bannedEnd() is called so that I know when to proceed to the next banner

Everything seems to be working correctly in Safari and Chrome, but in Firefox the last (third) banner doesn't seem to start playing. The weird thing is that even though you can't see the animation (it simply displays the first frame), at some point bannerEnd() is called, so internally the flash animation is working.

At first I thought it's because the container with the banner is not visible and tried modifying the slide's DOM in hope of triggering a re-render and forcing the browser to start the animation (as seen in onSlideAfter method), but that didn't help. I don't have much experience with flash and couldn't find any relevant solutions or similar problems online, so I don't really know where to look.

It's also not the issue of the one particular banner - if you change the order, the problem persists with the last (third) banner.

I isolated the code from the rest of the page and it can be seen here: https://pang.fraktal.ee/~stepan/flash_banner_issue/

As I said, the issue seems to only be with the Firefox browser, so it seemed appropriate to seek help here.

My firefox has been crashing about 10 times day for about 6 months now. I've updated everything in my computer and all the firefox add ons. I've even updated to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7 and still the same problem. I'm starting to think its a hardware issue. I've even tried using Chrome. I'm still having the same problem and get the "aw snap" when browsing. The only plug in I have is Adblocker. The the extensions are Shockwave, shockwave for director, Adobe acrobat, and OpenH264 video codec by Cinsco. I've updated everything. Reinstalled everything and now started to buy new hardware. Recently put Windows 8 on a brand new hard drive and still having the same problem. I'm almost considering buying another motherboard. I have my crash dump file that I can send if anyone can help.

Hi, I have gone through all the troubleshooting procedures you suggested to fix the problem of a script running that causes extreme slowness on my computers (I have 3 so it is not a computer issue). It only happens when I am looking at facebook posts in my email, or at least that is when it begins. My firefox is up to date, that is whenever I get an update from you it is installed. Firefox works fine so long as I am not going through my facebook posts in my email. The last time I did the troubleshooting process it cleared and messed up all my settings so I am not willing to do that again. I am looking for a real solution that will not cause a reset to all my settings but will enable me to actually look at my email without the computer creeping along. I have more than adequate internet service, I have AT&T Uverse 12 meg, so it is not my internet connection, I believe it is a problem with an incompatibility between firefox and maybe my email service (AT&T) and/or facebook. The solutions AT&T offered did not take care of the problem either, hence my letter to you. I have also eliminated any unnecessary programs at start-up so I do not think there is a conflict there. Please, what kind of solution do you have now? I did your troubleshooting process in March of this year.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter, Jenifer Stabler
