The only things I can suggest are to be sure you have the latest version of flash and clean out your cache possibly. Those are just the basic suggestions besides being sure that all of your plugins and extensions are working correctly.

Download the latest version of FF, even if you already have it, just re-install it and then do what the person up there said too.

Firefox is working fine for me .. ( latest ) .. Could also be addon or something that you have installed that's causing problems.

I love the template of FF...but Chrome is more reliable and faster. I used FF for a while and then I experienced the same problems as the OP and finally I said F-- it, Chrome it is.

I now use FF as my backup browser.

If you're not going to help, why did you come in here in the first place to troll OP's spelling and grammar?



If you're going the install the latest version route, then follow these instructions (the first part may be optional, anyone correct me if it is please)

Go to control panel and from there go to add or remove a program. From there click on firefox on the list and click uninstall. After it is completely gone, go here ( www.mozilla.org... ) and install it again. After it is installed you'll have access to the browser. You may not have to remove your version at all though, I honestly have no idea myself.

There are 3 basic things you need to do (in this order). Check if the problem is fixed after each step, if not then move onto the next step:

1) Update Firefox - go to Help -> About Firefox and it will check for an update and apply the update if one is available.
2) Update Flash - go to this page and follow the instructions. Remove any old Flash plugins when finished.
3) Update Graphics Drivers - download the latest driver for your video card and install it. This process will depend on your type of video card.

If none of that works then try disabling hardware acceleration in Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> General.

Don't worry bud, you must be far ahead of curve compared to standard sheep if you've got over 1.3 thousand posts on ATS.

mwah don't worry about it!

I just deleted off my system firefox and chrome.. still have some shared applications to sort out but I hate both of the programs, they have a lot of problems, very INVASIVE... bit like many of the virus programs, they take over your whole pc!!

I am also removing off my system specific flash add ons that are absolutely unneccessary. a lot of people laugh at me for 'not being up with the times' because I have chosen to resort back to IE. It isn't that I didn't upgrade or evolve with technology, there is very little user control over the latest strives in technology so people need to be aware of that.

there are individual settings on flash that the majority of people are unaware of. try them out but if you have too many problems... like your camera turning itself off and on! then remove the entire program.

There are several browsers based on the same code as Chrome but that do not have all that Google added features.
I have SRWare's Iron and Comodo's Dragon.
