I often search for PChsearch on my email to then use PCH search engine. Use AOL...I know guru's can't believe people use AOL. But I am an old bird of 78 and hate change. I do this almost daily (thinking by some miracle I might win a PCH drawing!!) Today when I did this the above statement appeared...a first! So didn't know how to solve so I used their search engine to go to FB...where I was planning to go anyway. Same thing happened...can anyone explain and tell me why this happened & how to solve?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

The System Details List shows that you have multiple Flash plugins.

  • Shockwave Flash 20.0 r0
  • Shockwave Flash 21.0 r0

You can find the installation path of all plugins on the about:plugins page.

You can check the Flash player installation folder for multiple Flash player plugins and remove older version(s) of the plugin (NPSWF32) and possibly (re)install the latest Flash player.
