You are talking about Firefox and IE, which are two different systems. So the problem may be the computer.

check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drivers

https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

Question owner

I know firefox and Ie is 2 different systems i was making a point (opera works fine but firefox and IE don't I tried Avant browser also no lag there either. so i am guessing it something to do with firefox.

It is not just the games and or videos even browsing the web lags, Although games is the worst then videos, Then web browsing. Downloading not a problem there

If it is my computer all browsers would have lag, crash, freeze, Opera works fine. i tested my wireless card and modem, did virus scans, did windows error chkdsk /f and /r all test found no problems..

video card is up to date.

disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (windows system32 macromed flash). I added ProtectedMode=0 to mms.cfg file (windows syswow64 macromed flash) there is no mms.cfg file in this folder

(disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin) i have tried this did not help it is still disabled..

like i stated in previous post,  firefox.exe -p or -ProfileManager does nothing wont even open or if it supposed it is not doing so.

I done been to this link no help there. that's why i came here. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Troubleshooting

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.

Use this link to check that your plugins are up-to-date. If any are listed as unknown or research, do not worry about them.

It could have been a corrupt file that was overwritten.

That was very good work. Well Done. Please flag your last post as Solved Problem so others will know.
