    i know you bar people are smarter than the other forum.

    "your shockwave flash is busy or is not responding......"
    get this error every 15 minute using firefox.

    uninstalled and reinstalled flash, shockwave, firefox, java. disabled plugins and addons
    i also set the firefox flashplugin timeout to -1


    all tips are welcome, even throw your laptop in the lake

    Is this happening on Firefox only? Are you using the latest FF version? If yes, is this when the issue started?

    Yes, firefox only. (I switched to opera and I'm good, but I preferred FF)
    Yes, 31. (I'm considering trying an older vers)
    It started a few weeks ago when I clicked one of schmoopys dumb videos. I guess any sites that use flash. Freezes me for about 15-30 secs.
    btw win 7

    Join the club. i'm having the exact same issue on my Win7 laptop. Started as soon as i updated to FF 31.0 - there's no related issue on my WinXP/Vista/8.1 laptops.

    Sounds like we need to file a bug report.

    Yep, did it as soon as it began acting up. Mozilla, Java and Adobe.

    Thanks. Glad to know it's not on my end. I'm not confident FF will fix with later vers, because are they gearing toward win 8.
    Didn't want to go to 8, but I guess it's time.

    I had to move away from FF a year or so ago. It was crashing a lot. I even tried some of the variants like Nightly. Same deal. I've gotten used to chrome and don't even miss FF anymore.
