Firefox 3.66 and Flash Crash Constantly

Jul 9, 2010 11:40 PM

Ever since the install it crashes constantly.. sometimes it could go for awhile with no problems, other times like tonight it'll crash like 6 times in 2 minutes. Doesn't seem to be a certain website either. Could be YouTube, could be MySpace, could be some other site.


I use Windows XP Media Center with latest updates, 32 bit, 2GB memory.

    Hi, if you haven't turned off the hardware acceleration feature then I would suggest you do that. Go to youtube and as soon as the video starts, right click on it and you should see a Display Setting; UNcheck the hardware acceleration.


    It is also recommended to update your graphic and video drivers to the latest versions. You may see an improvement by just turning off the hardware acceleration feature.



    See if this helps.

    Hi, I would not think it is per website, since the feature is turned ON by default with 10.1. The user then has the option to turn it off. So it is the Flash Player that is crashing, correct? Not the Firefox browser?

    Hi, well I went to Firefox and you can see what I searched for and the search result was 1,001 results for "Flash Player with 3.6.6" I read a few of the results and the users are not happy. They have tried everything, don't want vs 3.6.4 or 3.6.6.




    Firefox 4 beta is out.


    Another thread was having the same problem or worse. He Uninstalled Flash Player 10.1, Installed with the offline Installer, Installed the Firefox 4 beta and last report no crashes and he also turned off the hardware acceleration.


    I know some users on the forum here went back to Firefox 3.6.3.


    I don't use FF, so can't suggest anything other than info.


    Hope you get it solved.
