It sounds as though one of your plugins threw a wobbly and I also assume you are running Windows 7 32 bit
Just to add - that program runs plugins in a container so that if the plugin crashes it doesn't take Firefox down with it

A bit of digging shows that it may be a flash plugin causing the problem - why am I not surprised  Roll eyes

Oh that is not surprising but I thought flash problems occurred more in windows 64 bit, Should I uninstall and reinstall flash?
Edit, Yes Oldjim I believe your correct!! Just went to speedtest.net and flash is not working at all.

Re: Firefox Problem That Windows Cant Find A Solution To ( Again )

That's the plug-ins I have installed aswell as java and silverlight, The options on the plug-ins for flash just say disable? How do I go about un-installing them?
Edit. Found out how to uninstall at the adobe website.  http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

It is likely that closing and re-opening Firefox would have enabled Flash.
It is doubtful that you have achieved anything.
Flash will Crash again - because it was designed that way.
