System: Windows XP, Firefox 17.0.1.

Firefox freezes when doing anything that needs to browse local directory such as saving file, uploading, etc....For example, can't save any image using "save link as". When attaching a file in email, whenever the browsing to other location on the hard drive will freeze firfox, which turns to "not responding"....

hello, the flash plugin seems to be involved in these hangs - could you tell us which security related programs (av, firewalls, etc...) are running on your computer?

if you can't solve the issue otherwise you might also want to try downgrading to flash 10.3, which is still supported.

Thanks for the reply. I have McAfee installed.

Forgot to mention that I have uninstall and reinstall Flash. The one that I have now is 11.5.502.110.

The interesting thing is when I restart Forefox in safe mode, it still does the same thing though...

ok, thinking about the issue again, the hanging flash-process might be just be a byproduct but not a cause of the issue (since it shouldn't be involved when you download anything via the firefox context menu...

please try all the trobleshooting steps listed at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox_hangs#Hang_downloading_files

Have already tried whatever is suggested in the troubleshooting steps but it does not solve the issue at all. Interesting thing is the uploading problem does not occur when using yahoo mail but happens with gmail. However, the "save link as" issue happens with all types of files or links.

So far I have checked the forum with similar issues but most suggested it's a FLASH plug-in problem but does not seems to solve anything....

Could anyone help? Thanks in advance?!
