Re: Flash keeps crashing and freezing FFox 18

If you aren't already using it try the Memory Fox add-on. That made a big difference for me. Also try UnloadTab which unloads (but not closes) any tab that hasn't been selected in some specifiable amount of time. Like 10 minutes. Selecting a tab that has been unloaded takes just a bit longer than a loaded tab but it's not particularly noticable.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that a recent release included the equivalent of UnloadTab but I am not sure of that.

I'm on 19.0 now and with 5 windows and 152 tabs FF rocks for me.

That crash id is empty. Do you by chance have any other crash ids?

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Yeah. Hardware acceleration is OFF.

Flash plugin is up to date, maybe going back to 10.3 helps,

i think thats the only thing i havent tried yet....

I have found that Firefox 18 freezes intermittently for no apparent reason and the only way to close it down is to go to task manager and turn it off there. When i do there is usually more than one instance of Firefox and Flash running at the same time. If I turn off Flash Firefox also closes. This makes me think that the freeze is Flash related.

dobbs: Could you provide us with the latest crash ids again, the more newer the better.
