Is there a particular site that causes Flash to crash? One that will crash it consistently?

I've been struggling with Adobe Flash and WF on one computer but not another.. The one that I'm having problems with doesn't crash (sometimes but not often) but instead causes what feels like a memory leak although it's not; WF begins to slow down to where it's almost non-responsive. I can use other browsers and never experience the problem. Never had this problem with WF v11 or v12. It wasn't until v13, v14 and now v15.

I'm pretty sure the problem I am having is how WF and Adobe Flash is interacting with my hardware. Does not matter if I have acceleration on or off either and if I create a different profile I get the same problem. As mentioned earlier, I can use another browser and the same version of Adobe Flash and never have a problem.

That said, I'm sitting tight, monitoring this forum/thread, and hope for the best when WF 16 comes out. smile.gif

Yep, just tried that, and still does it. I must be missing something somewhere....a setting? Couldn't be a plugin that's missing, could it?

I just tried Chrome actually, and man it crashes a lot. Open a couple of flash sites and BAM it crashes. Don't know what's going on. Sticking with WW for now, because it doesn't crash as nearly as often.

Really? I've used Chrome for years now and never had a single crash. =\ Never had Firefox/Waterfox crashing either with Flash. Very odd.

And by resetting your preferences (start with shift).

maybe the computer components? I have 2 PC, on the desktop PC no problem with flash (good GC and CPU), with my laptop, crash and freeze are frequently.

I'm still having issues with opening links from other programs; using Waterfox 15.0, and also the pinned menu items being default icons and not working.

I've dug around in the registry, and I've found (I think) a smoking gun:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL\shell\open\command

has it's default value set to:

"C:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe" -requestPending -osint -url "%1"

This would, on the face of it appear to be a bit of a problem. I don't have a firefox.exe in that folder. However, if I create a symbolic link to waterfox.exe from firefox.exe, everything starts working correctly.

I think that although the Waterfox branding inside the executable itself is good, it seems that there's a string substitution missing in the installer, making it point to firefox.exe instead of the (correct) waterfox.exe.

If I change the text "firefox.exe" in this registry entry to "waterfox.exe" then URLs clicked from other applications start working again.
The only way I can get the jumplist from the taskbar working correctly is by creating the aforementioned symlink from firefox.exe to waterfox.exe in the porgram's install directory.

I'll assume (but haven't dug for yet - as I'm unsure how they work) that the jumplists are likewise a little wrong, thanks to the installer.

Other keys I've found which reference firefox (I don't have firefox installed on my computer) are:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ftp\Defaultcon
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ftp\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\DefaultIcon
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\https\DefaultIcon
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\https\shell\open\command

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MacromediaFlashPaper.MacromediaFlashPaper\DefaultIcon
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MacromediaFlashPaper.MacromediaFlashPaper\shell\open\command

Similarly, all these values in HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\StartMenuInternet has a Default value of "FIREFOX.EXE"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\firefox.exe has a default value containing "c:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Waterfox\13.0 (en-US)\Main has a value "PathToExe" which contains "c:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Waterfox\13.0\bin has a value "PathToExe" which contains "c:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Clients\StartMenuInternet\FIREFOX.EXE\Capabilities has a value "ApplicationIcon" with the value: "C:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe,0"

There are a fair number of places where the string "C:\Program Files\Waterfox\Firefox.exe" appears; too many to list here, but I give you this list as an indication that something seems to have gone wrong with the installer somewhere.

.
For your problem, clean uninstall (delete folders, Ccleaner, ...) and instal again. I know, but it's the better for resolve this problem.

13.0 was the only version I could actually install. v14.0, 14.2, and 15.0 just kept giving me an error message about a version of Waterfox either currently already installed or can't be deleted. So I'm thinking the issue is with the new installer that gives you the option to add AVG for the installation because when I installed that version using the same setup installer as Firefox there wasn't an issue.
