After version of 41.x.x we have notice that Silverlight application get hang and crash very often (few times per day). There is no way to replicate it ... it happened from time to time without any reason visible from our side. Before it worked well. So, users work inside our Silverlight application, and then from time to time browser return crash report (or on some users it just crash). For those which get crash report, looks like uploaded picture.

I am curious as to why the silverlight plugin ramps the fans up (3k+ rpm) when I am watching prime video's in Firefox, but when watching the same video's in Safari, the fans a pretty much the standard 2000 (2k - 1.5k) rpm. Happens with youtube too. Safari and web videos is way quieter and I guess I just don't understand why the difference.

Is there a way to get FF to throw a little less power at these video's so as to not light the fans off so much? It can really drown out the video audio depending on what it is. As it is, I use Safari for watching video's, but hate having to have 2 browsers open.

I recently had an issue with my ISP. My ping was over 1000 and my Download/Upload speeds were .07 or so. While this was going on (well before I realized there was a problem.) I was watching a movie on Amazon. Now silverlight in just firefox is broken. It keeps thinking that my connection is crap. I can not seem to fix this issue.

What I have tried to do: Uninstall/Reinstall Firefox and Silverlight Clear all Application data in regards to firefox Delete all Cookies/browsing history.


Funny thing I have tested the problem in Internet Explorer and found silverlight to be working fine. Yet when i go back to firefox it will not work.

Whenever I click on a Netflix movie, the Silverlight plugin crashes, but Netflix works fine in Chrome. Uninstalling/reinstalling Silverlight multiple times hasn't worked, and neither have solutions posted by other users - eg adjusting Permission settings to "Allow" Netflix.

I have the .js file that was supposed to boot up following my crash, however, it never did. I quickly copied and saved it to numerous places on my desktop to ensure it doesn't get lost or rewritten by firefox. I tried renaming it "recovery.js" and "sessionstore.js" while also taking out the other (new and invalid) restore .js files in there. However, even leaving the original backup that didn't open, and only it as the "restore.js" or as a "sessionstore.js" doesn't help. I open up forefox and it still only opens up my homepage without inquiring into restoring tabs. Again, I am positive that I have left the original restore file and only it in the folder. (I know it is the right one because it is monstrously long and I eye'd it and found some of the tabs I had. I'm on osx and don't know what else to do. Every poster with a similar problem says this is the solution, but it is simply not working for me. Is there anything else I can try? Is there something else I am missing? Thank you.

EDIT:


Now this is particularly peculiar. I finally got the application to restore. Again, the only one file in the folder is the original file with all ~40 tabs. It is named "restore.js" however. When the "this is embarrassing" restore window arose, it asked if i wanted to restore the two tabs that were open when I crashed firefox to replace the restore file. I looked in the folder and as I left it, the only file in there is the original .js with the ~40 tabs.

This has officially been catapulted to the point of making absolutely no sense.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

Using v38 on Ubuntu 12.04. I foolishly allowed Ubuntu to do updates and now pipelight does not work in Firefox, so I cannot visit Silverlight websites.

Pipelight still works in Midori browser so I don't think there is a problem with an updated pipelight, or Wine. Pipelight does not show in the list of plugins in Firefox, can you tell me how to check it's status in command line, or help me get it working again in some other way? Using pipelight is very important to me. I reinstalled it as per: sudo apt-get remove pipelight

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pipelight/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi sudo pipelight-plugin --update

Then install the silverlight plugin:

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight


Thanks

Netflix stopped working on my PC in Firefox. When I go to options-content and uncheck "play DRM content" it starts working.

I realize the Primetime plugin is intended to facilitate playback of some content (DRM) which may not otherwise play via Silverlight/Flash plugins but unless I disable it it is actually preventing me from playing normal video content.

As this is a Firefox/Adobe suggested plugin I would prefer it to function as intended rather than disable/remove it.

I uninstalled Silverlight and re-installed it, but that did not make a difference. It was working fine a few weeks ago, bu tthat was the last time I tried to play a movie, so I'm not sure when this issue actually started, so I can't match it up with a particular update to anything that may have caused it.

I am using WIN XP SP3 32 bit on a desktop computer. Firefox prompted me to update Silverlight, which involved uninstalling the existing version of Silverlight, which I did. But when I tried to install the latest version, it wouldn't let me. It actually got to the Installer, then this was the message I got.

"Message ID: generic You reached this page since you encountered problems with the installation of Microsoft Silverlight. In many cases these problems are due to incompatible browser and operating system or due to an old pre-release version of Silverlight. Please follow the Uninstall Instructions to remove any previous versions from your system and then visit the Silverlight Web site and install the latest version. "

What does all this mean, please? I'm not stupid & can manage most basic things, but am not a techie by any means...please, can someone please help me & tell me what I should do next? I am an aged pensioner, thus cannot upgrade my computer, as I haven't the budget to save up for a new one (or a re-con one either!).

I am under the impression that I need Silverlight if I want to watch most videos, and I do daily. (Meditations, mainly).

Thanks in advance Peace and Love Sylvia
