My Firefox keeps freezing when i watch videos, telling me "firefox has stopped working"

It also says something about firefox pluggins not working.
It doesn't crash, just 'stops working' and I have to close it with the task manager.
It has only happened when I am watching a video so far.
10 minutes after posting this it 'stopped working' while I was just browsing...

  • Firefox keeps freezing then crashing and a window opens saying "The Plug-In container for Firefox has stopped working..."

    Every 5 minutes or so Firefox will freeze and if I'm on a website that uses the flash player the ads and what not will stop and an error thing replaces them and says Adobe Flash Player has crashed. Then a window pops up and says "The Plug-In container for Firefox has stopped working..." or something like that. Then my laptop will work slower until Firefox crashes. Any solutions ?

  • Since installing 3.6.12, firefox crashes continuously...I have gone back to Windows Explorer because firefox does not run anymore. Upon any actioin in firefox, the screen goes white and freezes and I get an error message saying firefox has stopped working

    just about any action in firefox will cause a "WHITE SCREEN" freeze up and then an error message stating that firefox has stopped working. This happens in EVERY sessioin of firefox.

    I have had a similar problem with my system. I just recently (within a week of this post) built a brand new desktop. I installed Windows 7 64-bit Home and had a clean install, no problems. Using IE downloaded an anti-virus program, and then, because it was the latest version, downloaded and installed Firefox 4.0. As I began to search the internet for other programs to install after about maybe 10-15 minutes my computer crashes. Blank screen (yet monitor was still receiving a signal from computer) and completely frozen (couldn't even change the caps and num lock on keyboard). I thought I perhaps forgot to reboot after an update so I did a manual reboot and it started up fine.
    When ever I got on the internet (still using firefox) it would crash after anywhere between 5-15 minutes. Since I've had good experience with FF in the past I thought it must be either the drivers or a hardware problem. So in-between crashes I updated all the drivers. Still had the same problem. Took the computer to a friend who knows more about computers than I do, made sure all the drivers were updated, same problem. We thought that it might be a hardware problem (bad video card, chipset, overheating issues, etc.), but after my friend played around with my computer for a day he found that when he didn't start FF at all it worked fine, even after watching a movie, or going through a playlist on Youtube.
    At the time of this posting I'm going to try to uninstall FF 4.0 and download and install FF 3.6.16 which is currently on my laptop and works like a dream. Hopefully that will do the trick, because I love using FF and would hate to have to switch to another browser. Hopefully Mozilla will work out the kinks with FF 4 so I can continue to use it.
    I apologize for the lengthy post. Any feedback would be appreciated, but is not necessary. I will try and post back after I try FF 3.16.6.

  • I keep getting the following message and crash - "plugin container for firefox has stopped working." How can I fix this?

    Over the last few day the interent has been crashing with the following response - "plugin container for firefox has stopped working." Why and how can I fix this issue?

    Same problem here. Firefox keeps freezing, sometimes for 5 minutes, then either starts working again really slowly or I get the plug-in error crash. This last time I copied what windows said about the error. This is the info:

  • When I click onto the firefox webbrowser, I get the message "firefox has stopped working, windows will close the application to find a solution to the problem " This has been going on for several days, I've had to go back IE to access web pages

    When I click onto the firefox webbrowser, I get the message "firefox has stopped working, windows will close the application to find a solution to the problem."

    I had this exact same problem.  I found this fix and it worked for me. 
    Step 1:
    Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support and copy the filen named QTMovieWin.dll. 
    Step 2:
    Browse and past that file into C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes.
    Hope this helps you.  I wish I could remember where I saw this originally so I could thank them.
    Good Luck.

  • Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working ~ DivX Web Player plugin crashed

    Hi Everyone,
    Probably I should begin by saying anything computer-related is like walking blindfold in a pitch dark room. Seriously "tech-impaired" here (i'd go to someone who knows but tight budgets are a pain too... so if anyone here could help fix this I'd be forever thankful.
    The first part of the title line is what appears to me in a little message window. YouTube and Hulu work OK, but there's this site "Icefilms (dot) info" -the one that I mostly use- that's the one with the problem.
    It was all working just fine until last Monday night (June 20/2011) and it's not just with Firefox that I have this problem, cause when i tried to use Google Chrome it was the same thing, which makes me think it's not an Internet browser problem, I tried changing Firefox (5) to an older version, but instead of just the video widow, the whole thing crashes.

  • Firefox crashes with error message: "Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working"

    When I open Firefox it seems to be working fine for one minute, then everything freezes and I receive the following error message:
    "Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working
    --> Check online for a solution and close the program
    --> Close the Program"
    Neither option restores Firefox and I'm left with a frozen (white blurry Not Responding) screen. When I click on the X button, then I get the regular "Firefox is not responding" message and the whole program just shuts down.
    Should I disable all plugins and / or this plugin container? How can I do that, if Firefox keeps crashing?
    Basically, how can I fix this? Thanks a lot!

  • Firefox has stopped working in Windows 7 but works in Windows safe mode

    I am sending this from a different computer on which Firefox works fine. My problem is on a Windows 7 PC -- in the past few days Firefox has stopped working in normal mode but works ok in Windows safe mode. I keep getting a Windows error message that it has stopped working and I will be notified if there is a solution. Of course, I am never notified. I have tried resetting Firefox when in Windows safe mode, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, after having deleted all the program folders and appdate. I've exhausted every possible fix I could find in the Mozilla support forums but I still can's solve the problem. Can you help please?

  • Firefox used to work on my windows 8 machine, now it does not, even starting in safe mode and after un/reinstalling. message "firefox has stopped working".

    Firefox used to work fine, then a few days ago it just stopped. When I try to start it, it comes up with a message that "firefox has stopped working". That message comes up over the box that asks if I want to start in safe mode or reset firefox. when i try to close or cancel that message so I can try starting in safe mode, both sets of messages go away.
    if I try to start in safe mode using the shift key, the same thing occurs. The same thing occurred after I uninstalled and reinstalled.

    Do a clean reinstall and delete the Firefox program before (re)installing a fresh copy of the current Firefox release.
    *Download the full Firefox installer and save the file to the desktop<br>http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html
    If possible uninstall your current Firefox version to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
    *Do NOT remove "personal data" when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because this will remove all profile folders and you lose personal data like bookmarks and passwords including data in profiles created by other Firefox versions.
    Remove the Firefox program before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    *(32 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *(64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *It is important to delete the Firefox program to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_Firefox
    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure that "remove personal data" is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.
    If you keep having problems then also create a new profile.
