I had the same problem again yesterday with Firefox 18 on Linux. Very hard to reproduce. I clicked on a tab, the browser didn't switch to the tab, then I clicked again, and all of a sudden, the tab opened in a new window. I tried to repeat it, but couldn't.

Yes, I can't seem to re-create it either. Though it does happen every day. I'm still at a loss as to why it happens...

1. type about:config in your address bar

2. Adjust browser.sessionstore.interval to a higher number.

Hope that helps.

BTW, mine is set at 15000

I'll try this. Mine is set to 120000 and I think 2 minutes is more than enough not to produce any stutter in any Flash video.

Yours is set at 15000 which is the default of FF, right?

Wow. That's a high setting. Perhaps you should try turning it off and see if that helps. If not, turn it back on and try another value. 2 minutes should be more than enough time...

Well, that's the one recommended in the link you've sent me, two minutes.

I cannot turn off sessionrestore becuase I use it very much so because of my tabs.

It's just a way to test this. If you turn it off and you can watch the videos without stuttering then you know it's just the sessionrestore setting and not a combination of that and something else.

Have you tried reducing the size of the browser window/closing other open tabs? Just as a troubleshooting measure, not for a permanent solution mind you.

Additionally, you might want to try upping the video quality of the video you are watching. See if that helps.

Try this for stuttering flash video:

Right-Click on the volume icon in the sys tray.
Click on Playback devices
Select the device which you are currently using (default)
Click the properties button
Go to the Enhancements tab
Check "Disable all Enhancements"
Ok and Apply.

This trick worked for me.

If the next version 19 or 20, there won't be any loyal users left by then. There are alternatives and people are already heading towards these alternatives.

Hmm, I'll try these. But if I turn off sessionrestore then I lose all my tabs! That I can't do frown.gif

What do you mean "reducing the size of the browser window/closing other open tabs"?

I'll try that. Thanks!

I've already tried it mate, it doesn't work. Any more ideas?

One word about all this tweaking stuff.
I use Firefox since years and all this stuff exist since years.
I don't know what Internet speed others have but fast sites load within a second here.
How fast can it be? Seeing a site before i click a link?
Changing stuff like "pipelining" or "max-connections-per-server" can make it slower.
Not all servers like this. In the past there where allot of sites that don't load completely if you set it.
Most of this settings are already higher on default then they where in the past cause Internet connections getting faster and pc have more power.
If you set "max-connections-per-server" high and your connection is slow or your PC is slow then you make sites loading slower. Some sites use content delivery networks (CDN). That means that for example pictures and style sheets come over another domain. If "max-connections-per-server" is set to 10 and the website uses a CDN then your browser/PC has to handle 20 requests. If you set it to 25 you have 50 requests.
Also some servers getting slower if they get to many requests overall or from one IP.
Imagine 2500 visitors double there requests - thats like 5000 visitors.

And it makes no sense at all to lower the RAM usage if you have allot of RAM. The RAM usage is what makes a program fast. And it really makes no sense to use a 64bit browser and doing this.
The main reason for 64bit is that you can use more RAM.

Browser cache in RAM-Disk is something i tested the first time before 8 years and i also tested it again a couple of times. There is no speed improvement on a fast modern PC.
Fast websites lot in 1-2 seconds on a fast connection with a normal HDD so there is no bottleneck.
Your HDD is faster then your Internet connection.
I can download a file with full speed on my 100.000 Internet connection to an old HDD.

Most of this stuff does nothing or makes things worse.
It's like all this tunning software and Windows registry hacks.
They do nothing or make things slower.
Over the last 15 years I tested them all more than one time and XP works best with the default registry. I started stopping waisting my time with stuff like this when Vista was released.

If stuff does not work then make a fresh installation and work with it for some days and see if your problems are gone.

And i use TabMixPlus, Session Manager and 30 other add-ons and have no problems.
