Windows 7: win7/firefox issue

win7/firefox issue

Really stumped on this one. I've been using FireFox on my PC for a while and recently upgraded to v9.0.1

Ever since then I've found my cursor hanging up and I get the "Ta-dum" sound as well.

Before I ditch my browser is there anyway to find out what the heck is causing this problem?

Is there a conflict between Win7 and firefox that I'm not aware of?

I haven't had any problems with FF 9.0.1 on W7 Ultimate (64-bit).

Have you looked in the "Event Viewer"?

Are you using a wired mouse?
If so, is the cable and socket/plug in good condition and securely seated?

Have you tried reinstalling FF?

Hi FrankZ,
Clean your mouse, & check battery if wireless.

I'm not familiar with the event viewer and wouldn't know where to start.

I've removed all of them and still have the same problem.

I should just abandon ship and climb on into the Google Chrome Dingy....

I have the same problem with FF 6 but not 9.0.1. Does IE work OK?

I bet you, its flash...I've been having this problem on and off every so often. Opening Task Manager and killing "plugin-container.exe" seems to help revive Firefox from its hang up.
