Windows 7: FF freezes

21 Mar 2014   #1

FF freezes

I have been having this problem for a while, usually mostly on pages where there's flash/video files embed into the page.

All of a sudden FF will show up a black page (may be because my theme is black color), nothing shows up in the screen, after a little while it opens up normally. When I have multiple windows open, only one of the window shows up the problem & if I close the window which has the problematic tab, I could browse freely on the other window tabs, if I don't do that, it stays stuck for a while before I can play around.

I assumed this was related to the NoScript plugin, I have disabled it, even thought it doesn't happen as frequent as earlier but it hasn't died up entirely.

Is there a way I could fix this problem with out a necessity for a fresh FF installation.

Just on a side note.. I noted once, system memory spikes up too.. to almost 98-100%, when this freeze happens. I have noticed only couple of occasions it could have been an coincidence but I just wanted to mention it as well.

Just for the record, I have done scans with malwarebyte, Avira Scan, ran sfc scannow commands. Nothing popped in any of them.

See what happens using Clean boot,
Post screen shots of the startup section and the services section,
On the services section on the bottom left Check the box to Hide Microsoft services,
You can reset FF as well to see if it will help too,
