Firefox freezing (not responding on task manager)

  ferrispedro 17 Jul 12

This problem has appeared over the last few days. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox but the problem reappears.

Do you have the latest Firefox?


In the Help menu - click on "restart with add-ons disabled" Then update all of your plug-ins here

Go to Tools menu - clear recent history - time range to clear - select everything

click details and check the clear cache and cookies

Tools menu - Options-General - start up and choose "default"

Tools menu - tick Block Pop-up windows Load images automatically and Enable JavaScript

Also - try to remove any unwanted search engines.

Thanks Difarn will try that. Peter.

Firefox 14.01 is out now and will probably automatically update in the next couple of days.

Tried to post the new version for you but PCA treats it as spam although it does not say spam it just does not show when posted.

it can be downloaded from download.crew if you want to try it now.

Remove the old version and download the new version.
