I guess some maybe bored with my complaints about never ending software updates but once again an update has screwed things up. I avoided updating Firefox for as long as possible but the impossible to avoid updated Hotmail (grrr!!) hates the older versions of Firefox so I had to bite the biscuit. So now approx 40% of the time I start Firefox and open my home pages I get a temporary freeze and the below message. I can get rid of it pretty quick so it's an annoyance rather than a catastrophe. What ever I click on though doesn't stop it occurring again. I have searched for a solution but haven't found any solutions that work or are worth trying. A lot of the suggestions seem too risky or time consuming to try. If I reinstall Firefox I think I will lose bookmarks and most of the time my system restore doesn't work so I can't take chances.

Here's a question. It may be obvious, but did you update to the latest version of shockwave as well?

Also, it might be a good idea to read up on Firefox Sync. Beside it being convenient and useful between different devices, it also stores/saves your bookmarks.

I would reinstall Firefox and flash/shockwave. You can backup all your Firefox settings and bookmarks first before you uninstall...

I have recently been having a lot of problems with shockwave flash after an update, with it not loading pages correctly, making pages run slow or just crashing. I use Chrome, and I forced an update to this, and this seems to have cured my problems. In my case it was due to a "mismatch" between the version of Flash and the version of Chrome.
