Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150513174244

Steps to reproduce:

It happens all the time when I am loading a page that has videos, such as cnn.com or nbcnews.com.


Actual results:

Page freezes up and Activity Monitor says "Firefox not responding."


Expected results:

Page should load and not freeze up.
Can you reproduce the issue with clean new fresh profile without any addons and plugins?

I have removed addons and deactivated plugins - same issue.  I have tried "ask to activate" for plugins - same issue.  I have uninstalled Firefox twice and reinstalled - same issue.  I have also tried refresh - no change.  I have also activated and deactivated "hardware acceleration" - no change in issue.  

For what it is worth, Safri works just fine on the same laptop.

Hope this helps.

This is the only report I got after Firefox froze up.  Where else could I look?

Hi,
I have tested this on MacBook Pro Retina Mac OS X 10.10 with FF Nightly 45.0a1 and I can't reproduce it.

If you still have this problem please retest it with Firefox Nightly, download it from here: https://nightly.mozilla.org/ and retest the problem.

If you still have the issue please create a new profile, you have the steps here:https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Managing-profiles#w_starting-the-profile-manager

Please test if the issue can be reproduced in the safe mode of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode
