Foobar2000 conflicting with Firefox?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I notice Firefox freezing so often to the point where I have to end process & restart

It happened while I was browsing google images and hovering over the images, so often that even after 10 end process-restarts it didn't fix anything
So I decided to recreate the crash and diagnose it based on external apps that was going... so I managed to recreate the freeze; the only other apps running were messenger and Foobar2000. Foobar2000 was playing music when it did. So I closed Foobar2000. Firefox unfreezes itself.

Conflict between Firefox and Foobar2000? Perhaps a conflict with WASAPI?
Are there any such known conflicts, and were they fixed in newer versions? My current version is 1.0.3, I intend to update to the newest version of 1.1.6 right away

Never had that issue..

I have FF/Foobar issues on my secondary PC, which houses an Nvidia card -- but none on my sig rig. I doubt very much that's the issue, but it's the only parallel that I can draw here without knowing more about the Windows sound API.

I should mention also that I am using Waterfox (64-bit firefox), at the moment I am unsure if this situation is only happening in Waterfox or would also happen on 32-bit Firefox. Foobar2000 is not 64-bit though...

Aw crud, it's not Foobar... just happened without it, but very shortly
Time to go into diagnostics mode...

foobar is too light, that is almost impossible to cause issues with other apps

My foobar2000 and Palemoon play fine together.

One gripe I do have about PM is the crashing when you try to print certain things.
