Re: Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)

I already posted this solution in another thread in this blog... But well, no one hurts if I posted it again...

Hmmm... I believe some already have this solution... But, I want to re-post the solution i found in case somebody missing the solution to this problem...

Okay, The issue(correct Me if i'm wrong) : When you open mozilla firefox, surf for 2-3minutes and then the freezing/not responding will occur every 3 minutes or less. It say not responding, if you wait, it will take 30second - 2 minutes then it will be fine again.

If this is your issue, I have working solution.

Don't try to Install/Uninstall/Reinstall/Change version as it will be useless for this case.

The solution is actually must change the PROFILE. How to change the profile...? For Complete guide, I'm suggesting you Read this blog post as it contain screenshot or picture to aid you rather than a mere writing guide.

Note : Sometime Registry Fix may solve this problem, and disabling add-ons also may help. But, If you think you already try all method possible and has no luck, This might help you as I already confirm it. And it works most of the time.. 99.99%.

go here and it will check if your plug ins are up to date...If they aren't, it will give you a direct link on how to update them. It will most likely be your shockwave player that you have to update. If this was your problem, it will stop the freezing/not responding problem.

Go to 'Run' and open 'cmd' • Type 'netsh' in command console then press enter • Then type 'winsock' and press enter and then type reset • Restart Your PC

Re: Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)

Possible Solution:

I went through every forum and nearly all of the possible solutions (except the ones messing with my CPI). I became frustrated and nearly went to Chrome. So I did something that I have yet to read in a forum.... I uninstalled Firefox. Simple.

1. Uninstall Firefox. Completely. 2. Use IE to download Mozilla Firefox 7. 3. Download and install the new software. 4. Configure your settings and add-ons. Make sure you have updated all of them.

Solved.

Re: Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)

I seem to have finally found the solution that worked for me after trying every other possible solution I was able to find on every site that speaks to this issue and I am a happy FF user once again.

Source: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=270174 This workaround is recommended: 1.When Firefox is started,launch the Windows Task Manager (press CTRL+ALT+DEL, or right click the clock display on the Windows Taskbar and select Task Manager) 2.Select the process tab 3.Locate and right-click on the Firefox process 4.Select the set affinity option from the popup menu 5.Uncheck CPU 1 and validate with OK. 6.You can go back to Firefox. It is essential to change this affinity setting before loading Firefox.

Re: Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)

I do everything that is suggested and nothing works. The adobe flash player update will NOT install. In my case that is the believed problem. I download it and click to install and it doesn't bring up the adobe window that installs the update. I am stuck in the infinite cycle because the adobe installer will not do what it's suppose to do.
