This is also occuring in Mozilla Suite 1.8b2 build 2005030510. flash player/plugin shockwave flash 220.127.116.11 A couple of other sites that cause the hangup http://www.emusic.com/promo.html http://worldometers.info/ If mouse button is held down (can be in the finder or another application as well as in the browser window) the graphic spins.

Based on bug 285057 this seems to be a aviary branch issue...

Three dups... think its time to confirm the bug.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
(In reply to comment #6) > Three dups... think its time to confirm the bug. Happens with me too. Let me know if I can be of any assistance. The browser can handle 2 small flash movies, but as the # grows, the more cpu it requires. It works fine on windows and safari and ie on mac.
Happens for me too on lots of different sites. Since flash is commonly used in advertisements and since flash gaming sites typically have advertisements, this happens a lot.
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0+ Shockwave Flash 7.0 r19 Seems like a bug in the Mac version of the Flash plugin
For me, Firefox hangs about a dozen times a day due to this bug. Any time there are multiple instances of the flash plugin running, firefox will hang. If you use tabbed browsing and visit sites with advertising, you are going to encounter this bug a bunch. Can anyone confirm this yet?
Jake, What version are you using at the momment... Personally I got feed up with the bug, well flash in general (since maybe I might visit 2 sites a month actaully need flash), so I just Flashblock. I'm also using Deer Park now... and I haven't noticed it with 1.0.4 after I installed Flashblock so I can't say if it exist in Deer Park.
haven't had a crash for quite awhile now. I have Jave disabled but everything else is running. using FF 1.0.4
I am running 1.0.4 as well, but I get this crash constantly. I can tell when its about to happen because firefox becomes very unresponsive. If I quickly close the tab contain a flash object, firefox will return to normal, otherwise I will get the spinning beachball forever and need to force quit. I also reinstalled the latest flash plugin, but that didnt fix it.
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051006 (No IDN) Firefox/1.4.1 http://www.thesingingwater.com/ what happens to me on this website is that firefox takes 65% of my 1.5ghz G4 cpu. if more flash things are open, it freezes. I noticed that if I open the website in a tab and don't show it, it just takes around 7%. If the tab is shown, then it's 65%.

> Steps to Reproduce: > 1. Go to view HTML page http://www.thesingingwater.com > 2. Firefox hangs while rendering page (OK with Safari) I can reproduce this, also with the the other sites mentioned in #2. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7 libflashplayer.so Shockwave Flash 7.0 r25 The "funny" thing is that even Opera(Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; Linux i686; en) Opera 8.02) reproducable freezes too. I also have these freezes in Thunderbird, but I have no idea if these things are connected with each other. I will willingly provide more information on request.
> The "funny" thing is that even Opera(Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; > Linux i686; en) Opera 8.02) reproducable freezes too. After deleteing the one and only file 'libflashplayer.so' and one file called something like 'flash*.xmd' (can't remember exactly) file in /usr/lib/opera/plugins, opera can open these critical pages. But i think this is an expected behavior. Even if there is no 'libflashplayer.so' left on my HD, firefox still crashes.
If some of you previous commenters have a chance -- Kindly try this link: http://www.museum.tv/home.php We're trying to figure out if this is Camino-only, or a Mac-only, Flash-related or even a core products bug. Hope you get the picture...

(In reply to comment #20) Sorry I forgot to mention two things: 1. There is no libflashplayer.so in my file system. ls /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/ libjavaplugin_oji.so libnullplugin.so 2. If more information is needed, i will provide them..! Greetings Jan
My test case is (FF 1.0.7, OS 10.4.2, 1Ghz PBook): http://homestarrunner.com/main23.html After it loads, run your cursor down the right hand navigation ovals. Eventually it will start spinning and hang for 10s+. Does not happen in Safari or Firefox 1.0.7 on Win32. m.

At this point of time I can't say which components changed here, but all sites mentioned above, are now displayed without a freeze! Thanks for your quick help!

In 1.5b2 on OS X I was not able to make Firefox hang using this method :) I then went back to version 1.0.6 and it hung in about 5 seconds, so it seems the problem has been addressed, at least for my setup.
(In reply to comment #23) Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7 I was too pertly. I sometimes have this freezes again, but I found a solution that works for me. I have no idea if the problem under Mac OS can be related to this, I hardly can imagine. Whenever firefox freezes, a "killall esd", stop the freeze and the page continues loading. Flash Afterwards flash content works properly...
Is this related to Firefox hanging when long videos on http://video.google.com are played? Firefox practically grinds to a halt.
* apologies I didn't clarify: this is on Windows XP and happens with either Flash Player 7 or 8 installed.
This has not been a problem since v1.5 and I am unable to reproduce it in 2.0RC1 using my original methods. Marking as fixed.
