Firefox 41.0 is struggling with any page that has Flash player on it. Sometimes it copes, but other times it hangs. I have noticed that when this happens, plugin-container.exe sticks at 50%. At this point you have to kill the process. There have always been tolerable problems with Firefox and Flash whereby it hangs now and again, or the Flash comes up with an option to kill the script, but with the latest 41.0 it has become too frequent to put up with.

Firefox has been crashing about every 20-30 minutes. It freezes and I eventually have to kill it, but no crash report messages pop up. I tried "about:crashes", but nothing was there. I am using Windows 8.1, freshly installed on a new PC with very minimal programs. I would really like to continue using your Browser. Thanks for the help.

I have been having this problem since Monday after my computer was shut down two days in a row when I didn't have access to it. After I had started it back up, I went straight to YouTube. I clicked on a video and it started loading but then Firefox stops responding, and after about 30 seconds or so, it starts responding again. I just thought it did this because I had been gone for two days, so I decided to scroll down and look at the comments, where it did the same thing. I started to get frustrated, so I decided just to stay up where the video was and I tried to change the quality, where Firefox stopped responding and then started responding again. I then decided just to restart my computer, which didn't help at all. I then downloaded Chrome to see if it did the same thing when I was on YouTube, and it didn't. I tried looking up a problem on here, and found a guy with my exact problem, who figured out that he could fix it by just logging out and logging back it, which I tried, but it didn't work for me. I also cleared my cache and my YouTube watch and search history, which temporarily helped, but then it went back to not responding then responding again. My current version of Firefox is 40.1 if that helps any.

The past couple days firefox is consistently hanging when I try to open one particular website, where I have never had issues before. I can open the website fine with Internet Explorer. I tried refreshing Firefox, tried clearing the cache and cookies and tried unchecking the "use hardware acceleration when available," but none of these helped. What can I try next to troubleshoot this? I am running Windows Vista and Firefox 41.0.

Even when I do that the same thing happens again.

Firefox is crashing on certain websites. This is on a Windows 7 desktop. By "crashing" I mean it freezes up, and when I look at it in Windows Task Manager it says that it's "not responding". I have to click "end task" and then restart Firefox. I've noticed this happening really a lot on chicagotribune.com in the last few days. I have Firefox 41.0. I don't know if this has anything to do with Flash, but I have the latest version of the Flash Player plugin, 19.0.0.185. I also changed the Flash settings to disable hardware acceleration. When I view the same website using Chrome, I'm not having a problem, although I haven't spent a lot of time doing that. Also, many other websites seem perfectly fine -- Wikipedia, for example. But I'm pretty sure I've had the "not responding" problem on some other websites, I just can't remember which ones. Thanks in advance for any help. I'm a long time Firefox user but this is my first time posting on the support forum.

Starting a few days ago I've been having some serious issues with Firefox. It crashes almost constantly when I try to go on the internet. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser. Didn't work. When I go to close the page there is no option to send a report, it just asks me if I want to close the page or wait for it to respond. Then when I bring back Firefox it gives me the "Well this is embarrassing" message.

Firefox fails to load pages running certain web player and freezes.

Hello.

Since the problem only seems to occur on the Firefox browser, I've decided to directly post a question on the matter within the Mozilla forum.

The situation is: I cannot access or completely load pages that contain embedded players from particular sites that are used for hosting videos. The sites I'm particularly talking about are goodanime.eu, animeplus.tv, and gooddrama.net. The reason I'm suspecting it's a player found on these sites is because other sites that also use Flash, such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Daliymotion do not crash the application (FF) and force me to terminate it manually via task manger.

It's been like this ever since the site (animeplus.tv) came back online. I don't know if it's relevant now, but for about 5 days or so, I couldn't access the site due to a malicious warning that had arisen causing Firefox to block me from the domain of animeplus.tv. However, I was able to access the partner sites goodanime.eu and gooddrama.net all the same, even though I'm 100% sure they run and link to the same type of players on their individual sites.

About a day or two ago, I was able to once again have access to animeplus.tv. So, I decided to catch up on one of the series I watch via the site, but found that I could not as each time I tried to load a page that linked to those players, the Firefox browser would stall (Not Responding)—at which point I'd then have to manually end via task manager.

Incidentally, I came to find that upon having the browser crash when trying to load these pages, a certain background process that's used by Firefox to run plug-ins (Plug-in container for Firefox) had started taking up a bit of CPU and memory. It was the only thing running that high when checking task manager. It normally isn't that high, and upon typing this message, I can report that it is at a minimum level.

Upon learning this, I decided to troubleshoot by restarting the browser in Safe Mode, and tried loading the page. It failed.

I even uninstalled and removed all relevant files, rebooted, and installed it again (clean) only to find that these sites continue to fail.

I honestly don't know what's going on with this site, and I would've contacted the site owner myself, but I've done so in the past and did not receive a response. So, I'm kind of wondering what it is I can do at this point.

Just to clear up:

Firefox only crashes on the sites mentioned above when trying to load pages with flash players they've embedded onto their site.

Even after running Firefox in safe mode, the pages refuse to load and Firefox turns unresponsive.

When Firefox is unresponsive and frozen, task manager reads that the Firefox container for plug-ins uses up more memory.

Installing it clean does not work.

The pages described above do work on other browsers however, such as Chrome and Edge, but for whatever reason won't load on Firefox.

The currently installed extensions I have enabled are: Adblock Plus, Classic Theme Restorer, Flag Fox, Flash Video Downloader (4k), Ghostery, NoScript, Search Preview, and Stumble Upon. Tweak Tube is currently disabled.

I, at some point, thought it was due to an outdated version of flash player, but had it checked via Mozilla's pluginchecker and found that I had been running an out of date version of Flash player. I updated everything, but the site still fails to load completely and ultimately requires me to close it prematurely.

Plugins that I have are: Microsoft Office 2013, OpenH264 Video Code by Cisco, Primetime content decryption module provided by Adobe Systems, Shockwave Flash, Adobe Acrobat, Google Earth Plugin, Google Update, Photo Gallery, Quicktime Plugin, and Yahoo Application state plugin.

I have not checked to see if the mentioned plugins needed updating.

At this point, I'm at a loss. And, yes, while I could just watch the videos on another browser, I'm having trouble understanding why Firefox is the only one that can't load anything. I don't run that many extensions... and I normally only have about 4 or 5 tabs open at a time. Even then, the only tabs playing such content are confined to the one animeplus.tv.

Anyway, please feel free to ask me questions to help diagnose the issue here.

Thanks for reading.

Regards,

T.R.G.

Firefox has been hanging (not responding) very frequently, at least every few minute. It's been happening on youtube or switching from tabs. I've tried just about everything, from re-naming the "places.sqlite" to "places.sqlite.old" and doing re-installs (both deleting folder and uninstalling completely). There's no error that pops up, its just hanging, and then it comes back to normal after about 5 seconds. And the cycle repeats. Any new help would be great. Thanks.
