:smash: Hello There:  First things first...

Computer Specs  Inspiron 3647...Operating System = Windows 8.1 ...Processor = Intel Core 13-4130@3.4 Ghz...System Type = 64bit


Here is the problem:  Two days ago I started experiencing this message when using Firefox:  Unresposive Plugin...Shockwave Flash May Be Busy.


This message is usually followed by Firefox crashing.  I've also noticed that my videos on Hulu, YouTube, etc will freeze as well. 


These are the suggestions that Firefox suggested that I follow: 

(a) submit crash reports

( B) remove any older versions of shockwave

© Download the flash player uninstaller and re-install

(d) Disable Webgl

(e) Turning off Hardware Acceleration

(f) Search for and install video card updates (my machine does this automatically)


I've tried all these suggestions and nothing works.  I've also notice that my videos are not playing properly in Google Chrome as well. 


Is there anyone out there who can help me?  I really don't know what else to do.  Thank you, in advance
