Hello Xeni

 

Don't mean to blow this topic up, but I finally

got Firefox running smooth again.

So here's one more thing to try.

 

Now just to clarify, flash content will still function/play

even after you shutdown plugin container.

It just seems to run smoother when not in a separate process.

 

That being said, I was still not satisfied with the speed

of Firefox. I wanted it to feel like it used to.

 

So I tried this add-on: Flash Block

 

It really sped things up for me.

 

Now this will block all embeded flash content, but there

is a whitelist. So I just whitelist sites like youtube

for example.

 

Edit: If you whitelist youtube, then all emebeded content/videos

from youtube on any site will not be blocked.

Which is where the majority of embeded videos come from.

 

I don't go on youtube very often so this is still a

great option for me. I guess you could just whitelist

youtube while your on the site, then delete the

whitelist after. Only takes about ten seconds to do.

 

Also, to get emebeded content

to play on a site without having to whitelist

it, just move the mouse over it and click.

 

The content will play that one time only,

then be blocked next time you visit the site.

 

To get to the options just go to Firefox add-on manager.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Sorry for not responding, but I was quite busy with my studies and GeekU.

I installed and tested your suggested addon, but it didn't change anything. It's frustrating. I guess I'll consult Mozilla support, maybe they are able to help me :upset:

If anyone has other ideas, feel free to reply. I'd appreciate it! :wave:

Just a small addition, I wonder which version of Firefox you are running, I got a notification over the weekend for an update which has taken it to 32.0.1, to find out what version number yours is click on "Help" then at the bottom of the list click on "About Firefox". It will tell you there, and it will possibly start to download the update if it is out of date.
