Is Firefox crashing for you on PCA?

Is anyone else finding certain scripts on PCA are crashing Firefox?

I need to narrow this down as I'm now not certain whether it's my machine or it's a more general problem.

The issue is, it only ever happens when I'm on on PCA.

OK for me using the 64 bit version which is Waterfox.

Think it was the other way round PCA was having problems. Anyhow it was one or the other.

I/E 11 crashes for me most days.

Have you got the latest version 33.0

Thanks guy's I'll look into it further. It maybe the Adobe Flashplugin that's causing the problem.

Govan1x, I'm on Linux and using version 52.0.2 - 64 bit.

See what I mean - the above double post is due to a crash where I thought I hadn't posted!

I got 2 warnings yesterday that PC Advisor was not responding using Firefox but it sorted itself out and was resolved almost immediately.

You no longer get Flash player in add ons anymore with Firefox so sometimes I cannot get videos to play. Not that worried about that as I very seldom look at Videos.

So like you say could be a Flash problem.

i had to stop using firefox to use pca because every "click here for answer link" to me to a skimlinks site...

in the last couple of days when using google chrome on pca , the pca logo in top left , the page refresh circle and the mouse pointer all randomly flash , i dont have this problem on any other site.

i now use EDGE for pca without a problem.

Well Microsoft will be pleased that at least one customer uses edge. All you had to do was use an add blocker or maybe even Spywareblaster to remove skimlinks.

Make that two customers. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Chrome Fan, but Edge has been tweaked somewhat, and I thought I should give it a fair trial. It's pretty fast, and it seems to be behaving itself so far.
