[FireFox] Anyone having a problem with this page?

»[Hockey] Official~ NHL thread...........scores and highlites

The plugin container freezes FF everytime on this site and only this site.......this page took 4 minutes to load after FF was not responding?

I've even blocked the damn plugin in my firewall!

If the link you have is correct as it points to a DSLR thread the page loads fine with any videos posted by members playing fine.

Ya ,as soon as I click on that link with the embedded video.......FF freezes for a few minutes,even though the plugin is blocked?

This only happens on DSLR...........no other site gives me a problem ,why?

You could try removing the plugin-container.exe file located in program files/firefox or whatever default name it uses perhaps Mozilla Firefox.

I am using the plugin-container.exe from the trunk build (v24) in Fx v21 & 22 and it is working fine. I do not know what if any updates there are to the file but went by the highest version number.

Try a newer version of that file and see what happens.
I am using Fx v21, 22b, and 24 with the same plugin-container.exe
with no apparent issues.

Well dam.........I use version 12 on my W2K drive cause it won't update to a newer version.

So I just replaced the v21 with the v12 file and it works great.........amazing.

Thx for the idea.

Just grabbed a beta portable version and it also works ........so can't figure why the default file is so messed up?

Weird.

You are welcome.

At least Fx gives you the ability to easily swap out and test files.

Yes it does.........I didn't even close FF to replace them and it didn't even sqawk.

It would not automatically play in HTML5? Even on ancient Fx 4 that I have on this XP machine I currently using the video automatically played in HTML5. I don't have Flash installed at all on XP.
