Good luck on that one. I've been complaining about this for years. I am convinced the people who've built this program do not want it fixed or fnished (at least with Firefox). There's been dozens and dozens of updates but none have fixed the Flash crashing. I've disabled Flash, which helps, but the program still continues to crash daily.

Why is it that the Chrome engine seems to work fine but Firefox can't wait to blow up? I've gotten so used to it, it's like clicking the mouse. The thing that **** me off is when it won't close and I have to jump through hoops in task manager to kill it and get it to restart. It's part of daily life with Avant.

Too bad NetCaptor is no longer around. It was 90% of Avant and it never crashed (but it did use the Explorer engine)

Try disabling protected mode (if it's enabled): Firefox--> plug-ins--> Shockwave flash--> Options--> uncheck protected mode

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ad ... de-firefox

I wonder if you guys experience this problem also in the stand alone Firefox.

I must say that that firefox plugin container uses a big part of your processor power (50% here). till about 6 months ago you could disable that plugin container, what gave at least 20% less usage.

Since arcman has also been experiencing this, maybe he can point you to his threads so that everything is one place and specifics of the issue can be prepared.

And along those lines, posting some specifics would probably help the devs to reach a solution.

If you show up somewhere with an issue and don't see the place flooded with complaints, that typically means not everyone is experiencing the issue. I've never had any issues with videos in any engine in Avant. (I think it's been awhile since I've played Flash, though, admittedly. Maybe I'll start blocking it in Avant's interface to see.)

Links and specific behavior during and after the crash would go a long way.
