Firefox ESR 52.2 Wn XP
I installed ESR in January. It was fine until this latest upgrade, 52.2. Now pages won't open properly,getting page is not responding, or Firefox is not responding, flash plug in crashes (& yes I turned off hardware accelerator). I"m having a lot of problems on my FB games, too. I'm constantly closing the page & re-opening it and of course geeing "Restore page". I decided to use Chrome and, guess what. no more problems. I'd rather continue with Firefox, but it's become a major hassle. Any thoughts?
Crashes or other problems with certain multimedia content in Firefox (such as Flash videos, animations or games) can often be resolved by performing the steps in these Knowledge Base articles:

Can you upgrade to a newer FF ?
I was told I could not in Win XP.
Just like I mentioned!
Have you checked for malware/adware. https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware
Cleaning your cache is good also as well as running MS Disk Cleanup
Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
Let me reply to both posts. The first thing I did is scan for malware/adware. I clean my cache all the time. I've used safe mode, too & no. my security software is not causing a problem.As, I mentioned the problems started with the latest ESR upgrade & I know from past experience with a Firefox updates, not all are good.
