Firefox + Flash videos = frequent crashes

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I often used YouTube with Firefox but it always crashes. I uninstalled and re-install it but it didn't resolve the issue. I even tried reformatting my Windows 7.

However the flash still continue on crashing randomly.

Is this a problem with Firefox itself?

I need some ideas. Thanks.

Hello Tinna,

There are multiple possibilities on why Firefox keeps on crashing:

  • The problems you are experiencing on Firefox may be caused by a malware, please scan your system to ensure that your system is clean from Malware and spyware's. You can try using anti-malware programs like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or SuperAntispyware Portable Scanner.
  • Update your browser. In version 3.6.4 and later, Firefox runs plug-ins like Flash in a separate process called plugin-container. This is done to prevent Firefox from crashing.
  • Check the version of your Flash. The latest of flash plugin should perform better and crash less often. To check if Flash is up to date, visit Mozilla's Plug-in check page.

I hope this answer your question.

Good Day.

First of all make sure that you are using the latest version of Firefox. Latest version always comes with number of major fixes.

Start Firefox in Safe mode and see if it still crashes. This is how you launch Firefox in safe mode: Hold down the Shift key while double-clicking the Firefox. If Firefox no longer crashes when you run in it in Firefox Safe Mode, go to the Add-ons Manager Extensions list(See Firefox menu for Add ons), click the Disable button for every extension, and restart Firefox normally. It can be one of the extensions that were causing the problem.

There can be 2 issues which can cause this Firefox crash: Corrupt Registry or Virus or other installed software like McAfee site advisor.

Try this:

Hi there , 

Its very common in crashing of Mozilla Firefox ever since its recent updates. I don't recommend using Mozilla Firefox.

I remover ever since i receive product updates almost everyday and doesn't makes any sense.

I don't no they are playing like madmen.

Ever since i changed to Google chrome Each and every problems i had made an end. 

Try downloading and installing Google Chrome Browser from and You don't have to worry anything about flash at all . You don't wanna install any flash plugin since Google chrome has an inbuilt flash plugin which Users just don't want to care at all. 

Good luck.
