Adobe Flash player makes my Firefox browser crash

My old PC died so I just started using and old one, running Windows 2000, that I had sitting around. I installed Firefox, my preferred browser, and many sites tell me I need the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to view conten. As soon as I install it, the browser crashes within moments of being opened. I had the same experience with the Opera browser. The fixes I've seen on the internet seem (1) different from each other, and (2) cryptic to me. Any suggestions?

I too use Firefox and so far I have not had any problems with it. After you install FF, you should close it before installing Adobe Flash. After you have finished installing Flash Player, your FF should be working. BTW be sure to get the latest version of FF.

Have you tried using Internet Explorer? Sometimes the newer features of Firefox and Opera are buggy with older operating systems.

Adobe Reader 9 problem


Hello,
I would like to help you to quickly solve this problem. Yes, you will need to install an add-on that will allow you to view PDF files in your FireFox browser. Follow these instructions.
1) Go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/. 2) On the navigation menu at the top, click on "Add-ons". 3) Next, in the text field where it says "search for add-ons", type "Adobe reader". 4) The add-on is named "PDFescape Extension". 5) Then click on the green button "add to firefox" located to the right of the add-on name. 6) A pop-up window will appear with the name of the add-on, in this case "PDFescape Extension". 7) Next you will see the "Install" button located at the bottom of this pop-up window, click it to install the add-on. After this, the pop-up window will close and open a install window. 8) In this download window, you will notice the progress of the download. When it is complete, you will be prompted to restart firefox. To do so, simply close the firefox browser window, and then start firefox up again. 9) To test the add-on, try viewing a pdf file in the firefox browser.
That's it!
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank You,
Raphael
