I would take a look with the program "top" what exactly happens. Maybe a part of Flash hangs. You could check which process-id the program has and kill it. In the past i had trouble with gnash, and a killall gnash was a very good advice

Firefox may be using too much of your CPU. Try starting Firefox, then opening System Monitor (search for this in dash), and under Processes tab, locate Firefox.

To fix this issue, you could install Pepper Flash Player, a safer and more stable version of Flash Player from Google. An Adobe Flash Player Pepper installer is available in Ubuntu 14.04 repositories. This installer downloads Google Chrome, extracts Pepper Flash Player and sets it up for Chromium usage. sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree sudo ...

I believe this is an issue with Firefox itself, as it does it on various OS's, and on various harware. I know how to get it work on a MacBook multi-touch touchpad running Ubuntu, so I'll show you how to do it there, and you should be able to get it to work on your touch screen as well, as it's a setting within Firefox, not the system. Ok, open Firefox, and ...

The flash player that you are using in Chromium is Pepper Flash Player (pepperflashplugin-nonfree) from the Muon Software Center. Firefox uses Adobe Flash Player. Search for the Adobe Flash plugin (flashplugin-installer) in the Muon Software Center and check if it is installed. If Adobe Flash plugin is not installed, then install it. Alternatively install ...

I found the answer on Reddit. Many users experienced system crashes after updating to Gnome 3.14. They discovered that it was being caused by Firefox plugins (even when said plugins were disabled!). Uninstalling the plugins fixed the crashes. To prevent the OpenH264 plugin, disable the about:config setting that allows it to be downloaded from the provider. ...

Now you can try typing the URL of the file relative to DocumentRoot in the addressbar of firefox, like so: localhost/index.php. This will open the file ...

Also, you will need to change the home page to anything other ...

AHAH! Just when I had given up, I found a solution!! When I tried to stream from Acorn TV I got the message "update to Flash 12" which can't be done directly. Google Chrome does NOT solve the problem. Apparently only Flash 12.2 and later versions will handle the DRM system used. Pipelight is a special browser plug-in which allows the Windows plug-ins to ...

What helped me get mine running on 12.04, after nothing else helped, was to make sure I had everything installed. I had IcedTea Web Control Panel, OpenJDK Java 7 Runtime and OpenJDK Java 6 Runtime. But what I didn't have but needed was the "Icedtea Java Plugin" which I installed via the Software Center. Upon restarting my browser (Firefox) I was able to run ...

It is likely that this is not because of system speed, but because of how Firefox is configured to handle scrolling. Start by typing about:config in the address bar. This will provide you with access to detailed Firefox settings. Once there, search for scroll and you will find tons of values that address scrolling speed, animations, and behaviour. If you ...
