Since upgrade to FF13: having problems with flash content, especially videos when scrolling/multi tasking--freezing the video and sound for 1-2 sec. Any advice?

At first, the same night I decided to update--things were fine but after using the browser hours later a second time: some flash scripts would simply not respond and freeze the tab the content is on or like in my question, constantly stutter. The problem for flash videos only seem to occur when I scroll onto links or when moving up/down a page. I encountered similar problem with FF7--like that time, I installed/uninstalled the flash player and even resetted firefox but to no avail--the problem persisted. It is also present while in safe mode. P.s. such problem is seemingly not present in other browsers which brought me to ask this question for assistance.

hi about 2 days ago ff stopped working. i type an address into the usual window like i've done a million times, hit enter, and nothing happens. i click on a bookmark, the url shows up in the address window, but nothing happens. there are maybe 3 bookmarks that still work, and all the rest are duds. auto-complete still works, but firefox refuses to take to the address. i get a lot of "flash crashes" (thanks, adobe) so i recently updated flash, and that started the problem. this is why i distrust updates. (for the record, i keep current with firefox updates, even though it is still bloatware that uses 2 GB just to run 3 windows. anyway, any help you could offer would be most... helpful! (not sure why my exclamation points are printing as open-brackets, but hey, whatever, that's the internet) thanks, tim

Flash videos hang the entire browser, killing plugincontainer.exe wakes Firefox up again

I need help! :) Disclaimer: I'm actually trying to help a friend of mine, and I personally spent over an hour at my friend's apartment trying to fix his Firefox. I'm posting here so I can hopefully get some more tips from all experts here.

Symptom: Firefox completely hangs when playing back Flash videos (eg. Youtube). You can usually still hear the audio in the background, but the video freezes, and indeed the entire UI freezes. You can't even click the red [X] button to close the window at that point.

Workaround: Getting the Windows Task Manager up and killing plugincontainer.exe makes Firefox respond again, showing the "Plugin crashed" box in place of the video, and you can finally interact with the browser again.

I've tried the following:

  • Ensuring that he's running the latest Firefox (8.0.1)
  • Upgrading Flash to latest version - same problem before and after
  • Upgraded the graphics card drivers to the latest version (it's a ATI Radeon HD 3200) - same problem before and after
  • Created a new Firefox profile - still the same problem
  • Made a clean install of Firefox by wiping the program folder - still the same problem
  • Created a new Windows login account - still the same problem
  • Tried in IE - it works fine!
  • Tried in Chrome - it works fine!

I'm suspecting that this is some sort of graphics driver/flash issue, but what really boggles my mind is that it works fine in Chrome, which (I think?) uses the same non-ActiveX version of the Flash plugin.

Another piece of evidence that I think points to the device driver: running Windows in Safe Mode actually makes the video play fine (although very very low fps).

Any clues, anyone? I feel like I've tried all possible troubleshooting steps!

Hi,

since the update to FF 53.0 (and now also with 53.0.2) I've had it freeze on me 5 times and every time it also completely locked up my PC - mouse was frozen, Ctrl+Alt+Del didn't work, gave it 10 minutes but was still frozen afterwards - and I had to shut my PC down forcefully.

My system: FF 53.0.2 (32 bit) Win 7 (64 bit) 16gb RAM FF Addons: NoScript & AdBlock Plus

No changes in terms of add ons, no Windows updates or new programs that could have caused this. The only programs running in the background are/were my anti-virus/anti-malware programs, Skype, Outlook, Rainmeter and my mouse driver (all of which I've used for at least the last 6 months). The first two times it happened when I tried to restore tabs from the "oops, that shouldn't have happened" page and the last 3 times when I opened a new tab (with 1-2 other tabs open at max, usually only an empty one!). The 3rd time was 2 weeks ago, the 4th time on May 9th when I opened a new tab after clicking on one of my tiles on the "new tab" page (no other tabs were open at the same time!). Today it happened again! I installed a bunch of Windows updates a couple of days ago and this time I had Minecraft loading up and was watching a movie (DVD) in VLC (no Outlook running this time) but when I opened a second tab in FF, the picture froze again. The weird part is that the sound of the movie kept playing but it didn't let me move the mouse or open the Task Manager. I've never had a video run at the time of the freeze, so I don't know if Windows would have still kept playing the sound the other times.

I can play really hardware-intensive games that use 50+% of my cpu (not that there are a lot that do) and a lot of my gpu's power/VRAM and/or RAM (sometimes goes as high as overall 13gb/16gb) but I've never had any freezes just with games + watching a video at the same time, it always happens while opening a website through one of the tiles or a new tab directly in FF 53.x!

I have 3 PC's that have all been upgraded to W10, and all 3 have FF as their default browser (2 PC's home built the other is a Samsung Series 7). On all 3 of these PC's FF hangs for no reason, and even more baffling they all seem to hang at around the same time. Most often I will minimize FF and walk away from the PC only to come back later and not be able to access FF. When that happens the FF window is almost slightly blurry and the only buttons available in the window are minimize and close.

Yesterday I updated 2 of the PC's to FF 40.0.3 but FF still hung in less than 24 hours. The other PC is running FF 28. The only thing these 3 PC's have in common is that they've all been upgraded to W10 and they share some of the same add-ons. Any suggestions on troubleshooting this? I did try disabling Flash but that did not resolve the issue.

I can no longer use Firefox. It started out as a video problem. Videos became more choppy and eventually stopped playing altogether telling me there were problems with the java script. I deleted all history and caches and that did the trick for a few hours. I also disabled 3rd party cookies. Soon after Firefox would freeze anytime I started it up. It says my plugin container has stopped working; I looked this problem up and found out that some guy had the same problem when he disabled 3rd party cookies. I've tried everything, even re-installed Firefox, which should have re-setted everything! But it freezes as soon as I click on anything, so I can't go into my settings and re-enable 3rd party cookies (if that's even the solution!)

So this is what it looks like now:

I open Firefox up and it wants me to restore pages. No matter what I click, it freezes and shuts down. Then it usually tells me "Plugin container has stopped working." Sometimes I can get past the restore page and to the home page, but it freezes and shuts down as soon as I click anything and repeats the same message.

I really need help! Firefox is the only browser where I can watch or download videos.

This started to happen two days ago. I'm using Firefox 36.0.1 on my brother's laptop, always using private browsing, and things seem to work fine for 5-10 minutes. After that, the browser won't load or refresh any website at all, it just shows the spinning wheel and/or a white page, with no error messages.

After trying to close and open process again, I receive a dialog saying that Firefox is running already. I can see the process running but I can't close it with task manager. Have to reboot and manually delete the parent.lock file on my profile folder.

Once I can open it, after 5 minutes, it happens again.

What I've tried: Deleted cache, cookies and history. Disabled extensions. Disabled Javascript. Went to normal browsing. Went Into safe mode. Made a new profile. Refreshed Firefox. Uninstalled and reinstalled.

Last seemed to work, installed Adblock and managed to recover my bookmarks. Worked for 1 hour, then it happened again.

Checked for my firewall, there was an exception already. Checked my antivirus, my brother's laptop uses Avast, disabled webshield. No need to check for proxys, don't use them. Everything was working fine till two days ago.


Posting from my desktop computer. My current browser has more plugins and extensions installed. This one works fine. So I'm putting my brother's specs.

Version: 36.0.1 Extensions: only Adblock Plus and Download Helper Plugins: Shockwave Flash and Java all up-to-date. OS: Win 8 64bit Sys Specs (don't know if this is relevant): Intel I7 3,5GHz 8GB RAM

I have been having an issue with Firefox freezing "sporadically" on my PC. In a nutshell, Firefox freezes typically once per boot-up cycle. By freeze, I mean that my whole PC locks up and is unusable, no clicking is allowed for any task, but my mouse is free to scroll around. Once the computer unfreezes, typically under 1 minute later, whatever action I had taken will pop up (including but not limited to ctrl-alt-del). This freezing only occurs on certain websites, and only after boot-up. The frequent problem I have isolated is yahoo mail, where the browser becomes stuck on "read s.yimg.com".

As far as I know, this only occurs shortly after boot up. If I magically avoid culprit sites, the PC eventually reaches a state where I have yet to witness a freeze. So say I get lucky on a few websites and edit a word doc for an hour, when I eventually load yahoo mail, it may NOT freeze.

I am currently running Firefox version 43.01. I had been using 36.04 until I updated to 43.0, and the problem started occurring on 36.04. I ran Firefox via safe mode, and also manually disabled all add-ons, but the problem persisted.

Also gave google chrome a shot, and I did not come across this same issue.

Anybody see this before? Curious for any insight you are able to provide, and a possible solution. While it may seem like a stupid question (do stupid questions actually exist?), could this be a virus? My gut tells me no, but I am no computer specialist.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am using Firefox on my Macbook Pro.

When I quit Firefox, the windows close but the programme remains open on my dock with the dot underneath, as if it's still open.

Force quit doesn't work, and it is not showing up in activity monitor, so there is nothing to force kill there.

I then can't restart Firefox without restarting my computer.

I'm having a new issue (it started about a week or two ago) where Firefox runs fine until I try to play YouTube videos. Then Firefox lags for about 1 to 10 seconds. The bar at the top will flash "Not Responding" before going back to normal. This happens numerous times.

I have tried shutting down all other applications, "refreshing" Firefox, turning off Privacy Badger and AdBlock Pro, turning off Shockwave Flash's "protected mode, and even unchecked Firefox's "Use hardware acceleration." So far, none of these fixes work. I even even went so far as to try a HTML 5 add-on for Firefox. So far, nothing has stopped this lagging.

I've Googled and saw a lot of other people with this issue (so it's not just me), but I have yet to find a fix. Can anyone help?

This has only started over the last couple days. I've checked to make sure that I'm running the most recent version of Firefox, cleared my cache and cookies, and even reset the browser to default settings, but each time I receive a new message through Google Hangouts (the built-in interface in Gmail) popup message appears telling me the Firefox has stopped and that I need to close the program. When I select "Close Program," the Gmail tab goes down, but everything else stays that same, and I have the option to "Restore Tab." This happens multiple times a day.

Troubleshooting steps attempted: - Updating Firefox - Clear cache and cookies - Reset browser - Clear temp files - Restart computer - Fully close and restart browser

Is there something else I can try?

Hello Mozilla, I'm using Firefox 36.0.1, my OS is Windows 7.

After I update to Firefox 36.0.1, every time my network disconnect ( my router is disconnected once a day), I can't use Firefox so that I must close it. But after closing, firefox process still remain and I can't terminate it by Task Manager. if I try to open application again, I will report that "Your firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible".

So that I must restart the computer to kill firefox process. When I open Firefox again, the report is the same. I did clean reinstall once, but can't solve the problem. I'm very tired when syncing my profile again and again ( It's lucky for me because I signed an account for syncing).

Please answer me soon. Thanks for your help.

Just for the past few days 12-19-18 or so I've noticed this happening. I'll get an email, click "print" and it will open the email in a pop-up window. I select "Adobe PDF" as the printer, and then a window usually comes up showing the progress, and then it opens the pdf in Adobe Acrobat.

Recently, however, when that window comes up and shows the progress bar, it freezes. Sometimes I get error messages (shown in screenshots) but mostly I have to go to Task Manager, shut down firefox.exe processes, and I can't print the file to a PDF at all anymore. When I use this feature in Chrome, it works fine. I mean, it used to in Firefox, too, I don't know what changed.

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

First thing, why is there no "register button" on the forums, tell your UI guys this IS confusing, not might be confusing, you have to go through this question submission to register at the forums. Been on the Web since I started hosting a BBS in 1988, I should not be confused. I should be browsing the forums right now looking for the right thread to get some help in. Wonder where this will be posted? I don't know, because this is confusing.

As I'm typing this my characters are freezing ever 15 seconds or so. Is there something wrong with the current build? I've had crashing and "not responding" problems for the last month and a half. Have removed all plugins and Add-ons (not cool at all) and then re-installed, twice if you include today. You see, since the last update, which I thought might be a bug fix, Firefox is now using most all of my ram, usually about 3.2 GB of it, no matter if there is 4 tabs or 15 (which I would NORMALLY have in my browsing, so I no there was a point where Firefox had no problem with this). That sounds like a memory leak to me. My question is: Is there something wrong with Firefox right now? Seccurity Essentials and MBAM both say I"m virus and malware free, which would make 4 years of being virus and malware free, I make an effort to browse smart, so I'm pretty sure that's not it. I'm attaching a link to a Screenshot I put in my dropbox of the threads tabs of Process Explorer, what are all these threads? Why is firefox running all these Threads at once. Is this normal? I cannot use Firefox right now, is there something wrong on my end or your end?

My computer is 6 years old so it is pretty old in computer terms. It has Windows 7 32 bit and 4G of RAM. Firefox has been getting slow for a while but now it just will not open at all when I click on it though when I shut down the computer it says "firefox needs to be shut down force re-start".

I have tried installing and re-installing, deleting all the App Data etc but this achieves nothing. I can't even get the program to respond by going to all programs ans using shift key to open in safe mode. Internet Explorer and Chrome work perfectly and load within a few seconds. I support the ideals of Mozilla and use the browser on my phone and Ipad but I am finally losing patience with it on desk top. Any ideas on how to solve this before I walk away? I have tried every single option you list on your site and nothing.
