No alternative, but I can help you get it running again, first you may want to refresh the plugin database.

Your System Details List shows the Flash plugin. What does the Adobe test page say?


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.
