Crashes on firefox
« on: May 14, 2013, 10:01:49 pm »
I have had frequent crashes on Firefox the latest versions, very annoying. Some days ago I deactivated all plugins and activated one by one. It turned out that Flashblock was the problem. Now I have run without Flashblock several days and no crashes at all. Just to let you know if you happen to share the same problem.

Hi Melf

I bumped into a few Flashblock problems with the current Seamonkey (2.7.2.12) and posters in the mozilla ng suggested using NoScript instead - http://noscript.net/ - which works pretty well.


Regards

Pete

The problem with flashblock seems to be that it uses the flash scripting that our flash doesn't support. As Pete suggested, use no-script. You'll have to white list sites that you use but no-script stops a lot of irritating stuff.
