Computer had 3.6.4 firefox installed. 
Adobe flashed complained to be updated. 
Firefox just hangs and doesn't stops working.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Load a video on youtube, do not enjoy your video.
Actual Results:  
Video starts playing, audio continues video feed stops and freezes. Mouse has the link cursor on and you can't get it off, click anywhere on firefox, firefox doesn't respond to anything, nothing works, everything is frozen, it is broken.

Expected Results:  
Video on youtube plays, and no new account is created on bugzilla.

It should have worked like it did before the update. It was FINE before.

This is not a fix to firefox as it will always crash on this but this is a solution that I offer to others who are unable to find the solution due to poor SEO.

The solution lies in disabling the No crashing update that firefox has thrown in our throats

void warranty 

seach for ipc
disable everything that shows up, should be the following:

dom.ipc.plugins.enable - change to false
dom.ipc.plugins.enable.npctrl.dll - change to false
dom.ipc.plugins.enable.npqtplugin.dll - change to false
dom.ipc.plugins.enable.npswf32.dll - change to false
dom.ipc.plugins.enable.nptest.dll - change to false

This will stop firefox from trying to stop itself from crashing and thus crashing. Hope this is fixed in the future as this is inconvienent.
