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!

Since a week or 2 Firefox has been loading web pages very slow. Or it does load them but it takes a good 3 seconds before i can scroll or enter anything.

This morning also it froze up for a good 10 seconds and then it loaded the web pages again. Especially when i am browsing on a forum and return to main page or something. It just takes ages before i can select anything. It loads somewhat slower also but the part of it that i cannot select anything or scroll down before it stops thinking.

I was using firefox and it wouldn't load a page so I closed it. But it kept saying it was running still when I tried to re-open it. I had to go into task manager to shut the process down. Since I did that, it wouldn't work at all. so I reinstalled the newest version, I checked for virus/malware, I cleared the history and cookies, checked the proxy, and defraged the system. I have restarted the computer multiple times. I can still not get it to connect to a website and when I shut it down, it will not close unless I go into task manager to close it under the processes. I can open IE just fine. any thoughts? I am using an HP with windows 8.1 and I have no idea how to start in safe mode since I do not know how to get to it. That is the only thing I have not done.

not sure if I copied them right or not. They are links on my page but are not links here. Looks like they pull up by the ID numbers or something.

I hope you can help me with this.

I've been having a lot of trouble with youtube in FF on and off for a while now. I noticed if I run FF in safe mode, it works without any problem, but normally playing a youtube vid (even embedded in another site) can cause my display driver or even my pc to crash. My driver is fully updated, and was reinstalled cleanly. I tried refreshing FF and it didn't help. I uninstalled FF completely, even manually erasing any trace of any file/folder that had firefox or mozilla in it. Reinstalled and still the same problem continues.

Any suggestions?

The reason that I am sending you the info and posting the question, is because browsing has become tiresome for me, since I have to put up with the delays in responding, the crashes, the immense consumption of memory and so forth. I also tried a clean install and again the same things happened. I keep getting the black screens, the not responding etc..

Thank you in advance

I run FF 38.0.1 on Win7. I download MP3 files from our audiobook forum by right clicking on the link and selecting "save as". Since moving to FF38, using "save as" method to download a file gives me only a file fragment. I am able to use "save as" to download the complete MP3 file with IE or Chrome.

For an example of the files I am trying to download, see "Listen" links under "Listen URL" here: https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=56485 (This is a sample project file - we have a couple hundred of these projects open at any point in time, where we collect the MP3s until it is time to put them in finished audiobook form. The issue seems to arise across the board on all of the MP3 files on our open projects.)

We have quite a few FF users among our audiobook community - and several people have now reported this problem when they updated their FF to FF38. This was not an issue with earlier versions of FF. None of the other reports indicate what OS is being used. We download both MP3 and FLAC files, and the people with this problem have it with all files that they try to download using FF (so it's not that some MP3s can be saved and others can't - the "save as" function doesn't work for any of them). They also report no issues using Save As to download any files using IE or Chrome.

One of our forum users reported that if you begin playing the MP3 file by opening the link to the MP3 in a new tab, you can then navigate to the new tab, right click anywhere in the page and click "save page as" to successfully download the MP3 file. I have tried this and it does work. But it would be quicker to be able to use "save as" without having to begin playing the audio file first in a new tab.

I have tried using "save as" to download an MP3 file for one of our finished projects which are hosted over at Internet Archive. That works fine, and "save as" results in the entire MP3 file being downloaded. As an example, I successfully downloaded the MP3 of chapter 1 here: https://archive.org/download/drjekyllandmrhydedr_1505_librivox

Thanks for your help in checking this out!

As previously stated. Whenever I turn on my Windows PC, and after the Desktop loads, I get no response from the Firefox icon to load my home page for 3-4 minutes. This happens without fail anytime I'm starting (not restarting) the PC. If I click the icon more that 1x I just get that many windows opening when it finally does start. No other browser is doing this. I have all the auto checks and updates turned off as well. I have tried changing my homepage to no avail. Thanks Dan Meno in Indpls.

I've been trying to bring up Firefox off and on for over an hour now, and it won't come up. I was forced to use a different search engine in fact just to post this problem. I recently upgraded to Windows 10, but that has been about 2 weeks or so ago. I even tried installing and reinstalling the program and allowed an upgrade just now. Still no luck. I'm not a "computer person" so I don't know any computer jargon. Can any one help me, or is it a FF problem?
