it was doing that to me for awhile now. it used to work flawlessly, then it downloaded an update. It's gotten worse since that point. It crashes during the worst times and a lot of videos (ex. ones on WRAL, Panthers Website, Yahoo) wouldn't play. Plus it's slow to respond...:confused5:

I'd disable those plugins and then see what happens.

Firefox used to be good because it was lightweight. Now it's as bloated as IE(even more so when you start piling on the addons). I was hoping Chrome would be a lot better but it's not.

Firefox is fine. The newest flash update (which affects Youtube, Facebook, etc) doesn't work kindly with Firefox. I was having the same issues and even backdated my Firefox browser to version 2 just to make sure. FF is still the best in the business. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your flash and ditch the plugins just to make sure.

only problem i have with this is I need those plug-ins (especially zotero...saves my life when I do research papers). i would go through with it if i didn't have value in my plug-ins.

I think i will have to wait for the new flash update and see if it gets any better
