Sorry for the late replies everyone, was away for the weekend.

I tried re-running the update and it worked the second time around. I guess it was just a hiccup.

@Morphello

By the way, are the default setting of ublock pretty much good settings already?

 

Ah yes seems like it.

I suspect that one of the Windows updates from the March 10th patch Tuesday changed a file or registry setting that impacted Flash.

The computer with the problem is running Windows 7 Home Premium.
My other computers are running Windows 7 Professional.

Thanks again for your time and efforts.

Interesting that it only affected Home Premium. Wonder if a Flash update will be coming to fix it? Also I'm not sure if you guys and gals have heard about it but Shumway may be a good alternative to Flash if you're wanting to test something new.

This "fix" has been posted on several other websites multiple times. It seems to be a fix for some and does nothing for others.

 

It really does seem to depend on hardware configurations/driver versions.

That means I can actually use the browser, but it'll hate me stopping. lol

 

 

Haha oh dear. Hopefully with newer versions of ANGLE and various Canvas updates, crashing will be less temperamental.

My point is that streaming was working fine until the March Patch Tuesday Windows Updates.
One of the 27 updates broke streaming on one of our computers but not others.

My hope is that this additional data point may help resolve the streaming problems.

Chas

It's amazing and frustrating how "Security" updates seem to break a lot of unrelated things. I recently found out a Vista security update makes some fonts look seriously super ugly in some games. I think it may even be affecting Windows 7's fonts too.

 

It must be hard managing such a large codebase for MS. I can imagine organisational issues letting bugs like this slip through.

This has happened various times but I don't seem to understand the criteria for what causes this message. This article may be of help (just change the directory/names to match Waterfox instead of Firefox).

I still can't believe how big of an improvement ublock has given me. No more exorbitant memory usage when browsing the tweaktown website!

@MrAlex, did you have any ad blocker installed when you were trying to replicate my issue?

@MrAlex, did you have any ad blocker installed when you were trying to replicate my issue?

No I haven't needed to use the advanced mode. Normally I'm the kind of guy who has to read and re-read every setting and tweak everything first before I'm satisfied with it. uBlock was refreshingly straight forward and caught everything I threw at it. Some people might want to go in and block specifics, like the Disqus plugin or other specifics, but not me. For reducing the ads and bloat from the web, uBlock is great out the door.

Tweaktown I believe is mostly at fault there. There might be some issue with the way firefox implements flash and hardware rendering and the like, but frankly the site is so poorly coded, and they let their advertisers run everything. At one stage they made it so that if you used an adblocker, it would come up with a fullscreen ad asking to disable it. That of course, was quickly blocked, but it remains to be seen that they just want to shove as much as possible down your throat.

It's nice that you're enjoying a faster experience.

Understood!

Thanks for the help man. I just wished that this could've been fixed sooner. I've been running with this slowdown problem for many years now.

I don't think so, ran on most of the systems fresh. Some had adblock though. Glad to know it's all fixed for you though finally!!

I'm not sure...there might have been a reason at one point in time. Probably still is.

Can someone post a link to the offending TweakTown site? I'd like to give it a test in Pale Moon and Firefox and see if the latest versions of those browsers also bog down something fierce.
