Open Firefox

Allow Adobe Flash with "Allow and remember".
Open Windows Task Manager
Stop Firefox.exe process

=> Windows crashes without BSOD/reboot: only freezes

Also happens in Safe Mode.

Open Windows Task Manager Stop Firefox.exe process

Why?

I can assure you I'm not doing this out of shear pleasure. It took serious time to pinpoint this issue.

If you have 20 web applications you use daily in Firefox and it hangs for a reason, you have to stop it. This should not kill the whole OS.

your report says killing it from the task manager freezes the os

Yes, stopping (killing) Firefox from Windows Task Manager crashes (freezes) the OS (Windows).
I reckon the mozilla support system does not keep formatting/line breaks and makes things hard to read.

Let me try again:
1. Open Firefox
2. Navigate to https://pcc-149-202-254-130.ovh.com/vsphere-client/?csp
3. Allow Adobe Flash with "Allow and remember".
4. Open Windows Task Manager
5. Stop Firefox.exe process => Windows crashes without BSOD/reboot: only freezes

Edit: found the hidden possibility to edit the original post, will do to add br tags

your report is appreciated

but you still have not explained why you trigger this crash

Well, obviously if I knew why Firefox is sometimes freezing and I had a fix, I would not have the need to kill it manually.

To sum it up, there are at least two problems:

1. One problem is that Firefox hangs for reason X. This is not the problem I'm reporting.

2. Another problem is that killing the Firefox process under given circumstances crashes the whole OS, independently of any other factor. This is the issue I am reporting here.

Could this be a VMware issue and not related to FF at all ? Have you checked their forum for this issue ?
