View Full Version : Firefox lag/freeze

03-11-2012, 06:23 PM
Hey there, i have an issue where firefox would often lag/freeze while watching youtube videos...
It makes the videos all stuttery and firefox doesnt register any actions while this happens.
Sometimes it'll go away by itself, other times i have to close the youtube tab and all is good again.
Running windows 8 with the latest firefox + adobe flash player.
3570k, 8GB DDR3, 180GB SSD, GTX660ti
Does this happen to anyone else? Might have to swap to browsers to chrome or similar...

Could be an addon? Is flash 11.4.402.287 installed?? Have you tried IE to see if it does the same thing?

Nope IE works perfectly fine.

Just been doing some reading -- Seems lots of people are having the same problem.

Its not FF (directly) the cause its the FF Flash plugin, its not fully compatible (according to several sites) with Windows 8 Yet.

IE10 and chrome both come with Flash embedded, that's why they work where FF doesn't sometimes.

Personally I dont use FF on W8, Use either IE, Chrome or Rockmelt ( kind of social media Browser based on Chrome)

I have not faced such a problem ever.I personally think that it is a best browser which offers the best and fastest quality for browsing and specially for all the video hosting sites.
