Hello. I've had trouble lately with Firefox hanging and not responding. After some reading on the Mozilla site about this I checked my plugins and saw that Adobe Acrobat was out of date so I updated it. Now when I go to websites that require Acrobat it's not working. It's as if Acrobat is not there.

 

I am also having problems with the plugin that runs the USAToday crossword puzzle. I don't think that's Acrobat but another plugin that just stopped working today.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

If this is the puzzle....Puzzles USA Today.....it uses Adobe Flash...not Acrobat. Works for me in Firefox and Linux Ubuntu. Just tested it.

 

Firefox has its own PDF reader. What else do you need besides PDF reader that Adobe provides?

 

Try disabling ALL plugins then adding them back one at a time starting with Flash to test.

 

EDIT:  Here is a similar puzzle that uses Adobe Flash: PUZ

Thanks for the reply.

 

Is Shockwave Flash the same thing as Adobe Flash? Shockwave was turned off in my plugins and when I activated it all went back t normal. Problem is that Shockwave crashes a lot.

Yeah...it's the same thing...Adobe Shockwave flash.

 

You can use Firefox in safe mode to test for crash problem caused by an extension....plug-ins still work in safe mode.

You can try turning off/ disabling hardware acceleration as some graphics cards are not compatible.
