Trouble with Website and Firefox
Mick Johnson - 26-6-2009 at 21:19

Whenever I go to Download.com Firefox will stop working within a few clicks...every time.

I have to close it and restart. It only ever happens with this one particular website.

It's ok with IE.

Just checked it Mick, clicking many times, all over the place, and it's working ok for me in FF 3.11, I'd hazard a guess it'll be a Flash Plugin issue... Though TBH I've not bothered to check Google for any links to further info...

Is Flash/Shockwave installed and up to date?

Installed but i'll have to check if it's up to date.

I do have the latest Flash player.

Just uninstalled it and reinstalled and it still stops working.

It actually says 'stopped' in the bottom left corner. It does this after about 4/6 clicks in Download .com

Hmm... Bugger! ;)

Try using the Adobe uninstallers, reboot, and install the IE and FF plugins... All available HERE

I rarely use FF, but could it be a popup blocker thing? Or it's possible your security apps are blocking something on the page/s. What do you use?

Oh dear, it was as simple as enabling cookies.:)

I always browse with cookies disabled and just allow odd ones for forums etc.

I got no message telling me to enable cookies so never gave it a thought.

Thank's anyway Daz........
