Firefox tab crash issue.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the right place, but still.

On this work computer I use Firefox.

For some reason, every single time I open a new tab, I get a warning popup that says "Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation blah blah blah". It always appears about two seconds after the tab is open, before I can even start typing my url in to the address bar. I also get warning things on all any other open tabs informing me that Flash Player has crashed.

9 times out of 10, after this happens, the tab becomes completely unresponsive; I can't drag it in the tab bar, I can't type a url into the tab's address bar, nothing. All I can do is close the tab.

Also, about half the time this warning comes up, firefox totally locks up for about a minute.

Why is this happening?

Try and do a clean re-install of flash and firefox, that should hopefully clear out this problem. I would also recommend Google Chrome because of this:


I love this commercial!

Try reinstalling flash player. It seems more an issue with that than firefox.

Yay for late replies.

I just swapped over to Chrome, which never does this.
