Upon downloading any file using either Download Manager or DownloadThemAll, Firefox will freeze my computer. The harddrive completely stops. The keyboard and mouse are unresponsive; not even caps or num lock can toggle the lights on my keyboard.
I've performed a disk check and an overnight memory test, both of which found no errors.
When turn off the download completed sounds for both of these addons, Firefox functions normally.
This isn't just an addon problem, however, because TBird developed a similar problem at the same time. (To see my error report for that, please go here: https://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/freezes_computer_when_playing_custom_sounds )
All other sounds play fine, both in local players and on YouTube.
To best fix this problem, I really need to know how Firefox (and TBird) are playing sounds. This problem appeared out of the blue without having any updates to either program. I recently had install java 7 64-bit, having previously run only 32-bit on my 64-bit machine. I've heard that this program is very buggy and could've caused serious issues. I've uninstalled java and reinstalled java 6 32-bit, but that doesn't appear to fix the problem. I'm thinking a sound driver may have gone bad, but this doesn't make sense as I can player other sounds fine, even sounds that take java like Minecraft.
I've yet to discover any other method by which I can reproduce this crash and I've tested it extensively.
Thanks for your help.
