Hey professional people: I need some help understanding something. Here's the problem. I may go to an online TV station like CBS TV Shows. So, there I am watching one of my favorite programs like Hawaii Five O. All of a sudden during the program my notebook computer shuts down. ???? This happens when I am choosing to watch an online TV program. It's so annoying. If I use my notebook computer for other basic stuff, the notebook computer is working fine. So, what's up with this problem? I am using an older operating system which is unsupported anymore: Windows XP Media Center Edition, SP3. I know its outdated. But why is this problem occurring? Thanks Tech People!
Tech people have suggested: check power-savings menu. Turn them all off and see if it solves the problem...
Then I did this: I went to my control panel. I went to power options. I set monitor and hard disk to Never shut off. Also the same for System standby and hibernate. It doesn't stop the problem.
It seems this problem only happens when I am trying to watch an online TV program from episode (see my original posting). What can I do to stop this from happening?
Then I realized something interesting: I don't know about this, but I just noticed something interesting. Check this out. I tried again to watch an episode of the Blacklist (good drama) and I noticed that the video and audio were not in sync with each other. It was kind of like the video wasn't in step with the audio, which seemed quicker. So, me--the bright one--pauses the video for about 30 seconds. Then the audio and video were in sync when I hit play. Ah ha! So, me--little old me--decides that maybe, just maybe, this is part of the reason why my computer shuts down during the watching of an episode. Maybe the video portion of the video stream is taking too long to download onto my computer, while the audio is racing ahead quicker. Hey now, I'm no scientist, but something tells me this can be part of the problem. I don't know! Could this be possible? Maybe if the video portion drags to far behind the audio portion it causes a glitch in the computer system causing it to shut down. See, when I periodically paused the video to allow the video stream to enter my computer and I pushed play after waiting 30 seconds, it seemed to solve the issue, the computer didn't shut down. Humm. I am wondering what the tech professionals think of the realization. LLAP
So the guy I spoke to wrote back saying: I'm happy it solved your problem, but i dont really see how an out-of-sync movie can be anything else then very annoying. Somewhere somebody who is too smart for his own good will know the answer to that one, but I am not that person.
Thumbs up for solving your own problem.
However, I still haven't solved the problem: I just got done with figuring out another unrelated problem. My FF wasn't loading into my computer. I would press the FF Icon and my computer would say something like it couldn't find Mozilla run or something like that. So, I started to figure out how to use my IE8 to download FF again to my computer. Then I started checking around to see if I had the latest verison, which is now at 36.0.1 and I believe it is the latest version of FF. So, I am happy about that. I continued looking around and found the Firefox Health Report. It said that it crashed on Wed 4 Mar 15. This probably caused my problem getting it to run again on my computer. But then, I thought to myself...Why not ask FF about my TV episode viewing problem. Which is why I am here writing this mini thesis to you. Hope you're laughing a bit. So, I continued to read through some of the prior posting tips before actually typing this out to you. That's when I realized I am not alone in experiencing Audio/Video playback problems. However, I don't know if one of the suggested links will solve my problem. So here I am writing you now.
My episode playback problem still exists. Even when I pause the playback and restart playback about 30 seconds later, when I see the video is lagging behind the audio. You can tell when this when watching one of the actors speaking in the video. It's like the audio is ahead of their lips moving to say the words just heard on the audio.
When the problem occurs, it just completely powers down my entire computer system. And then I've got to reboot the whole system again, which as you know takes time. Oh, how annoying this is. Please help if you can. Thanks.

I typically run with cookies disabled (do not allow web sites to store cookies). I then manually allow selected sites to do so.
I recently tried to add a site to the exception list only to discover that many of my settings have been changed and all of my exceptions have been deleted.
I did not do this intentionally. The only thing I can think of is I allowed FF to upgrade to 36.0. I think this was a few weeks ago.
How can I get the cookie exception list back? There were at least 100, maybe a lot more. I have no way of knowing which ones they all were.
How can I prevent this from happening again?

Hi, I've been using FF36.0 for a week on my WinXP system and suddenly my Bookmarks Menu began opening on the right side of the Bookmarks dropdown list instead of the left side (where had it and liked it). Now that's all backwards. I tried various Bookmarks settings and this forum's Knowledge Base postings with no 'solve'. I thought I could fix this in Bookmarks settings but was unsuccessful, no matter what I tried. The posts I've read either describe fixes for other problems or tell me to click something that doesn't exist on FF36 (or are hidden to a simple user). Anybody been here and fixed that? I'll be your best friend. ; )) .Thanks, Joe C

i was using firefox 35.0.1 and just applied the 36.0 update few hours ago. after that, i was unable to run firefox. when i double clicks on the firefox icon, it bumps out 2 error message. 1 of them is "GetLogicalProcessorInformation ... kernel32.dll" and the other is "unknown exceptional error (0xc06d007e) at 0x7c812a5b"

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 36.0 on my XP SP3 computer. As soon as the program starts, my firewall alerts me the Firefox is making an outgoing UDP call to 220.127.116.11, port 1900. I deny it and it immediately pops up again. The second time I deny it, it stops for a while and then after about a minute or so, it repeats the process. I made a rule to block the calls. Does anybody know what's going on here? According to my research, 18.104.22.168, port 1900 is the IPv4 multicast address implemented through Universal Plug and Play. Why would Firefox now need to be calling that local address? Is there something I can disable in Options to stop Firefox from making those calls? I try to minimize the number of rules my firewall has to use whenever possible.

My email worked just fine this morning, now I can't get into it from Firefox. I get this message:
The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
I can get into it with google just fine. I would really like to get this fixed so i can continue to use Firefox. I'm not exactly a fan of google but you go with what works. I am having this issue on a desktop that has XP and a laptop that has Windows7.
