Plugin alert sometimes ,but mostly crashes for 5-7 seconds and sometimes the computer stops processes same time.everything up to date,has been doing this for the last several updates of firefox and flash.tried a lot of things ,do not want to do hard remove and reload.
hello if your programs are up to date and your system configuration is supporting the latest versions then its not a problem ... try to install older version of it.
Sorry should have said plugin crashes,I reloaded as it wouldn't allow older version to load,should have searched for stand alone download.
Firefox crashes for no rhyme or reason for several seconds or more when loading pages as it is ok and sometimes not and doesn't matter which site as there is no consistency.
Also, in your last post you said,
Firefox crashes for no rhyme or reason for several seconds or more when loading pages
What do you mean, "Firefox crashes"? What exactly happens? See the Firefox crashes - Troubleshoot, prevent and get help fixing crashes article to troubleshoot Firefox crashes.
In any case, recent Firefox crash report IDs might help with both Firefox crashes and plugin crashes.
Thank you for your help!

Only four of those crash reports are available for review but two of them refer to a crash in plugin IE Tab Plug-in Version:22.214.171.124 Filename:npietab2.dll
Open the Firefox Add-ons manager (see Disable or remove Add-ons for details) and
Note: Disregard the above. Those two crash reports are OLD, from July 2013. See my next answer.
P.S The most recent crash report from 12/17/2013 had to do with
plugin Shockwave Flash Version:11.9.900.170 Filename:NPSWF32_11_9_900_170.dll
For that crash, see Adobe Flash plugin has crashed - Prevent it from happening again and let us know what solutions you've tried.
The IETab2 related crashes were both old, from Firefox 22 in July 2013.
I removed and reinstalled firefox and flash again.,seems to work faster ,but I have a hard time navigating in safe mode to try and recreate problem . Seems problem in ebay search page going back and forth and Mozilla help pages do not scroll smoothly.I could not get the flash directive to disable hardware acceleration to work as clicking on check mark and close button did not work.
