I am having issues finding a work around to intall flash on my work laptop.

I did some searching and was able to find the work around below. However, there was no plugins folder and when I tried to create one, I was denied creating a new folder. So, I tried find another work around and some said I can go into Run: %APPDATA% and it will bring me to Firefiox extension, plugins, etc. There was no plugin folder, so I created one and saved it into the plugin folder. It looked like it too, but then when I went to restart Firefox, it kept crashing and running slow. I made sure that I was using the correct DLL. Is there another work around?

If you are a Firefox user and want to use Flash but do not have administrative privileges do the following:

   Download the latest version of the Firefox Flash plugin from the adobe website. Your best option is to right-click the download link and select Save As.
   Extract the contents of the downloaded file to a folder on the local system. You may need to change the file extension to zip if you have only access to the standard Windows unzipper.
   Move the two files NPSWF32.dll (NPSWF64.dll for 64 bit) and flashplayer.xpt into the Firefox plugin directory e.g.: C:\Program Files\Firefox\plugins. The plugin directory is located in the root directory if you are using a portable version of Firefox, if Firefox is installed is is located in the profile folder. Easiest option to find out where the folder is located is to enter about:support in the address bar. This works for Firefox 3.6 and up.
   If no Plugins folder exist create the folder and move the two Flash Player files into the folder.
   Restart Firefox to make this work and visit http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ to check your flash player version number.
   You can now enjoy Flash based contents. Be aware that the plugin is not auto-updating itself. You need to make sure to keep it up to date manually.

I used to be able to load videos from this and other websites without any problems. I think it may have start happening with a Firefox upgrade to v24 or v25. I access the website. Select any video to load and it never gets past 1% load. It used to load 100% and I could view it and using RealPlayer download the video to my hard drive. I can't do that now within Firefox. Any video from the same website using Internet Explorer loads, I can view it, and using RealPlayer download the video to my hard drive. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling RealPlayer and it still doesn't work within Firefox.

When I first click on Firefox my monitor shows an all black window for a home page. A small rotating circle shows up on the black window; the indicator that a web site is loading. After a few seconds the circle goes away and for a flash the screen shows the url itself of my established home page, with a bit of an outline of that opening. Just as quickly, that disappears and the window goes black again. I can close it by right clicking on the Firefox logo and selecting "close all windows," and I can minimize it by using the windows key and the letter M. I feel that the correct screen is underneath the black window, but to which I have no access.

Before all this happened the search engine Ask had made itself the home page for Firefox without my consciously asking for that. By going to the control panel and the Internet entry, I removed what had become the url (of Ask's supplied home page) in the choice for home page, with my usual one (www.excite.com). That's when the above trouble started and remains.

Obviously, I am writing this contact to the Internet and a different machine. On the computer with the problem I couldn't see what I am doing. I could have also used Windows Explorer on the troubled machine; it has not been affected with the same problem.

After updating to Firefox 27 all webpages take a few dozen seconds to several minutes to load. When loading a webpage Firefox's status displays "connecting" and the CPU gets maxed out with 95 to 100% of its cycles taking by Firefox.

The computer is older so it is a little slow but Internet Explorer 8 has no trouble opening the webpages and neither do other computers on the LAN so it is not a network issue. I have tried restarting Firefox, disabling add-ons, deleting add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox after wiping every trace of it and its user data from the hard drive and registry.

Recently parts of the text but not all the text on a webpage has started to blur or distort. Sometimes this distortion moves to the right. If i hover my mouse over the distortion or scroll the page it disappears. This is especially annoying on Facebook ect. I have not noticed this problem in IE or Chome but i havn't used either for prolonged periods to be honest. It's hard to test what causes it because the problem is intermittent, Facebook is affected the worst but have had this problem on other websites including this form and even in the Addon menu.

I have tried, running in safe mode, disabling plugins and clearing the cache none of which have solved the problem.

So, after updating to Adobe Flash 11.7...I can no longer watch a single video anywhere on the web without the sound randomly cutting out. Flash does not crash, it just stops playing the sound and keeps playing the video. I can rewind the video to a time before it cut out but then it cuts out again RIGHT as I rewind to a new point in the video. Where as before in the location I rewound to, it did not have the sound cut out before when I first watched up to and past that point. I have no idea what has caused this (except or maybe Adobe screwed something up).

Does anyone else have this issue? And what have you done to solve it (if you have)? Also, if this a Firefox only issue? Or is it everyone Web browser?

I've gone through all the suggestions, troubleshooting listed here and nothing has worked in stopping this "hanging" business. It started earlier this week with FF16. So I tried uninstalling, clearing out any traces of it, profiles and all. R-installed with the previous extensions, plugins and scripts. Still did it. So I either disabled or uninstalled said add-ons. Still did it. Upgraded to 17, then 18. Same problem. "Not responding" every couple of minutes for just a few seconds, longer when I switched tabs. I'm a heavy tab user, but given the problem, I've gone down to no more than 3 open at the same time. Still hangs. So I decided to do a complete overhaul. Did a reset. I even thought it was my computer (Vista with SP2) which had been working fine and was slowing down around the same time FF was hanging and being a resource hog.

With FF uninstalled, with the help of Microsoft support, I worked on the laptop. Uninstalled my usual programs, including AV (which had avast). Moved all my files to an external hard drive. In essence leaving my computer with bare bones. Did a defrag and a system restore. I reinstalled av, then ran it. All clear. Ran malwarebytes. All clear. Ran registry clean. All fine. So I reinstalled FF18 and did not use any add-ons. Still hanged. Went up to FF19 beta thinking whatever but there is, would be cured. And it worked fine witn no add-ons. So I started installing my usuals, but leaving only the most important ones, ABP, No Script. Was ok so I added greasemonkey, smartest toolbar, download statusbar and unhide passwors. All which I've used for years with no problems. And FF19 worked fine with no hanging for like a day and a half. Today, (jan 24) not only is it haning and not responding again, but it's doing it more frequently and for longer.

FF never has crashed, it just hangs and freezes. My job is ALL online. I don't like Chrome (not user friendly to me). I'd rather avoid using IE. I'm a user of FF since day one, but this is stressing me out because I cannot do my job properly.

What can I do to make it stop? My only other option is to just forget FF and try and get used to Opera.

Now that I think about it, could this hanging problem be related to the Java issue that has come out publicly recently?

I don't know what else to do. I've tried everything that has been written here. Trust me, I've wasted 2 days on this issue. Time I'll never get back and I could've used to do work.

Thanks

I have seen that there are many questions about dealing with unresponsive scripts, scripts that stopped responding, script busy, for various programs. Entering "script stopped responding" produces 1000 results.

So this seems to be a general problem, and is not tied to any program (though my problem lately is gmail).

It's very annoying to have to wait until the script problem gets to the point where all open windows freeze, slow down, move in jerks rather than smoothly, without knowing what is causing the problem, since it seems that a script problem can happen with just about anything you want to do.

What I want to know is whether there is a way to set up some sort of automatic system to deal with it.

Something like "if a script is unresponsive for X amount of time, stop the script". Ideally with that amount of time being less than the amount of time it takes for the unresponsive script to interfere with all functioning.

Or some way to limit its disruption to just the window/application with the problem - so if gmail is having the problem, youtube or nytimes.com will not be affected.

Even an early warning system would be nice, like a message popping up identifying the application with the script issue and that it is going more slowly than it should.

I am no expert, but I am thinking that most of the applications or activities involving scripts should work within a few seconds. If this is the case, a pop up saying, for example "a gmail script has been spazzing out for 15 seconds now".

Basically, anything that sends an alert or that stops the problem before it affects the entire system would be very very helpful.

Here's the deal. About last week, My firefox browser encountered some problems. Everytime I opened it, loading time was really long and when I opened a new tab either to open google search or to open another website, it didn't respond at all for about 30 secs or more. That was why I reinstalled firefox to see if it, hopefully, could be different somehow. Unfortunately, the problems now are not so different from what I have described, only now it's got a bit worse with the constant "not responding" and "freezing" in every tab I open - more or less than 30s PER TAB. I thought there was something wrong with my hardware or some features on my laptop, yet my google chrome still works. How does it still work? NO IDEA! But whenever my firefox freezes when I click on some links or a new tab, I turn over to GC and it still works really well so far. But I would prefer firefox to GC as my default browser since I'm more used to using it and a few features on it work better on the latter. So I would be really grateful if these issues are dealt with as soon and effectively possible. Thanks a lot :)

This is getting extremely frustrating. Anybody know what to do?
