Firefox 31.0 crashing with latest flash update
Hi. I recently upgraded to Firefox 31.0 and Flash 188.8.131.52. Since then I am unable to watch video files as a green screen appears and shortly thereafter a error message stating that Shockwave is still working or has stopped working and that I should click continue or stop the pluggin.
My mouse has also become slower since this upgrade and the fan on my graphic card really cranks up.
I am running Windows 7 32-bit OS. This problem did not exist prior to the upgrades.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.
You can check for problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions and try this:
- check for updates for your graphics drive drivers
- disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
- disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
