You should try to turn off hardware acceleration for Firefox...
...but I'm not sure how you are going to do that if FF locks up.

I know that you mentioned that you don't use IE much - but does this site load within IE?

If not, start IE without add-ons and test again.

I tried the link in IE, and no it did not work. I disabled my add-ons and retested and it still would not load.

I think in FF yea, I cannot un-check hardware acceleration so, hmmmmmm.
OK just tried that in another tab and i, in fact, cannot uncheck dat - box.
And then you would have to close that tab now because opening up the flash player settings box freezes the viewer and then start fresh in a new tab.

Thanks for checking IE on that website.

Try these steps:
Uninstall Flash Player | Windows
Do not skip anything in step 3.D.

Then only re-install flash for non-IE browsers.

OK, I did what you asked, followed everything to the letter.


As soon as i clicked "finish" on the Adobe install box- BAM- FF opened to the Adobe page and Shockwave locked up before the page would even load on this install!!

Try this version: Download Flash Player 12.0.0.24 Beta (Non-IE) - FileHippo.com

If that fails, create a new Windows user account and test with a fresh Firefox profile.

Now thats a flash player!! I removed the old flash again and installed the 12 beta and WOW, that works great.

I have used my PC now since last nites install and have had no shockwave issues since.

I guess we can mark this as solved!!

Thanks so much for all the help UsernameIssues.
