Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

Firefox 3.6.4 and 3.6.6 use a process called, "plugin-container.exe" which was using up most of my CPU when I opened up multiple tabs that contained Adobe Flash files, and caused Firefox to lock up.

My solution was to use Firefox 3.5.10 which you can get from the Mozilla website at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html I am using Adobe Flash 10.1.53.64 without any problem in this version of Firefox. Check the release notes, I believe it contains all the latest security fixes in "Firefox 3.6.4".

Hopefully, they will fix Firefox 3.6 in the next version (e.g. Firefox 3.6.7), until then you should probably use "Firefox 3.5.10".

I don't know how to get rid of the new version I have before I install the older one Michael. Can you help? I am also concerned about security . Help me out.

Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

Hi Marie,

I'm just a Firefox user like yourself. But I'll try to offer you whatever assistance I can.

Here is a link listing security issues fixed in Firefox 3.6.4: http://www.mozilla.org/security/known.../firefox36.html#firefox3.6.4

Here is a link listing security issues fixed in Firefox 3.5.10: http://www.mozilla.org/security/known.../firefox35.html#firefox3.5.10

I downloaded a copy of the "English (US)", Windows version of "Firefox 3.5.10" from this link http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html You can download a different language version if you prefer.

I installed "Firefox 3.5.10" on top of ""Firefox 3.6.6", without un-installing "Firefox 3.6.6". "Firefox 3.5.10"automatically replaced "Firefox 3.6.6".

Do you need more info, or is this OK?

Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

I downloaded firefox 3.5.10 but when I click up top on help and about mozilla firefox, it says I have 3.6.6. What does this mean? When I downloaded the older version, it said it was installed. Confused here. Help ? By the way, I checked out the security link and all I saw was secure. Don't I have to make sure it's secure? Sorry about the questions, but I am hoping you are the help I need and please get back to me ASAP.

Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

OK, you downloaded Firefox 3.5.10, which means you should have a file called "Firefox Setup 3.5.10.exe" on your PC somewhere. This is the installation program.

Did you double-click on the "Firefox Setup 3.5.10.exe" file to start the installation? If it still says "Firefox 3.6.6", I'm guessing you didn't actually install it.

The security links just contain information about what security issues have been fixed in the various versions of Firefox. Most people probably wouldn't understand it, and wouldn't be that interested. To be honest, I don't understand most of it either. But you did say you were concerned about security - What aspect of security were you referring to?

Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

I will check it out and get back to you Michael. Security is what I am concerned about is if the older version is safe from intruders etc. Just give me time to check things out and I will definately get back to you and so please bear with me if it takes me awhile. I will get back to you.

Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

Marie, you should be aware that even the best Internet browser by itself is not secure. That is why you need a firewall and antivirus software.

Still, you should click on the Firefox security links above to make yourself comfortable that Firefox 3.5.10 suits your requirements.

Re: why does adobe flash crash on facebook cafe game

I have antivirus software and a firewall Michael. I am going to check out what you asked me before about the download and I will get back to you and it will take awhile and I may not get back to you until later since it's very late here. Bear with me.
