After updating to Firefox 14 and to the 11.3 flash Firefox will hang on every flash website I try to view on a Win2008R2 server.

I can reproduce this on several machines after installing the latest Flash update and it does not repro if I disable the flash plug in.

I have already tried completely uninstalling everything from scratch on this server with no results, including deleting all files related to flash and FF.

FireFox 28.0 Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0

Just installed Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS on an ancient one-time XP machine.

Everything is fine until I try to play a video - doesn't matter which one, youtube for example. The page loads perfectly well EXCEPT for the video. The cursor in the area of the video is the 'hand/fist with pointing finger'. All thumbnails and other images load OK

This is very frustrating as I am trying to instal speakers on a silent motherboard with cmos battery on the way out!!

Hi. I am using FF33.0 and if I watch Silverlight videos I can't minimize or change the tab without getting sound problems. It sounds like video would slow down and thus distorting the sound.

The sound stops distorting after 30sec-5min after the tab is changed or window minimized. If I change it back to the tab where Silverlight video is playing and the sound is distorting it stops immediately.

I have tried to reset FF and uninstall and re-install.

The problem is limited to FF only. Chrome and IE work fine.

Thank you for any help!

hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

Hello,

Been using Firefox for years and refuse to switch to Chrome, but it gets kinda frustrating atm and im leaning towards Chrome lol...

If my firefox version is open longer then 24 hours, and there is a flash item in it, it will eat resources till my computer almost dies. Its open for +24 hours now. And Firefox.exe eats 1,2GB memory and 11% cpu

Firefox is open 2x with 20 tabs? I dont really care about the memory or cpu usage, but i do care about the. For instance, if its open longer then a few hours and i watched some flash stuff, i open a small youtube clip on the left, and scroll on facebook on the right screen the small clip is all stuttering etc.. and if that gets as bad, Scripts will be stopped by firefox, Flash does exactly the same.

So if i let my pc run if i go to work and come back with 10 tabs open, the browser is just laggy and not ok to work with. Tho better hardware does "solve" it, but thats a 8 hours ++ kinda.

My personal pc at home: i3 4310 with 8GB memory and a SSD. Win7 At work: i5 2500k 8GB and a SSD. Win7

Im kinda "home" to computers, as i work daily with them / solve problems with them bla bla..

It just seems to get more regulair with the trouble with Flash and Firefox. Tho i love firefox.. :( This is a problem getting bigger every quarter of a year for the last 3 years.

If i close firefox and restart its okay again for a few hours.. and then its crashing scripts and flash again, Im not putting this on Firefox, but i wanna know where this is going wrong. Ive got the same problem everywhere, i tried full resets defaults. I scanned my PC for spyware with MBAM, Combofix, SuperAntiSpyware.. And i even reinstalled my complete Windows installation at work a few weeks ago because of it.

Hope this is enough information..

Thank u.

Since the latest update to version 35, many sites that use javascript to manipulate images tend to crash firefox and make either the guilty tab or all of firefox close suddenly. (Firefox on Debian 7 Wheezy Linux, all updates current). I use firefox daily for web development and this regression bug is VERY annoying for my workflow. I understand you cannot take every situation into account. I do not have the time to investigate what has made Firefox less stable. I really hope you can fix this performance problem. If I can do anything concrete to help besides jumping into the code, let me know.

when I view a video on Firefox, it stops to buffer. The problem started when Firefox updated itself about a week or so ago. Before the update the videos on Firefox ran good with no buffering issues. Now it take up to 5 minutes to view something. Even the commercials will stop to buffer. How can I get this fixed?

When I play any type of media such as a you tube song, or media from a news source, it plays very badly skipping, running slow, or even hanging the browser. When I run any media on Internet Explorer it runs perfect so I have to go to IE if I want to hear something perfectly. So far I have tried every suggestion and nothing works. Does anyone know how to fix it. BTW...I do have an IE tab set up in Firefox and if I run something in that tab it usually plays ok but not always. I hate to keep switching browsers just to hear something that will play right and I am running the latest Firefox update

Streaming video crashes. Sometimes they will play for awhile then crash or Flash crashes from the onset.

I have the latest version. I have started in Safe Mode. I refreshed Firefox. I have unchecked the USE HARDWARE ACCELERATION WHEN AVAILABLE box in preferences, and in the little Flash box thing.

Nothing has worked. Is there something I have overlooked?

Thank you

I can go into chrome without any issues and watch any video without any problem. the second i get into firefox nothing works. i have had this issue on and off for years. i really do not see why you cannot fix this if everybody else can. i have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and flash player multiple times. nothing seems to work. I am truly getting really tired of this same problem year after year, i stay with firefox because you are privacy conscience and are being more so consistently. i do not know what other details to tell you other than this just keeps happening and it is making it very tough to do anything on firefox when i cannot use a simple thing such as flash player. as i said, if the other browsers can fix this i see no reason why firefox cannot year after year. i hope there is a simple fix for this problem because it has basically halted a lot of my work on the net as i will no longer use google or microsoft. thank you
