Could you try disabling graphics hardware acceleration to Firefox? Due to the recent driver updates, many users know strange stability and performance problems related to this function.

You need to restart Firefox for it to take effect, so save any work first (e.g. you compose mail, documents online that you are editing, etc.).

Orange Firefox button or classic menu Tools > Options > advanced

In the mini ' General' tab, uncheck the box for "use hardware acceleration when available.

If you restart Firefox, the issue is resolved or at least improved?

  • Satellite 1900-303 turns off for no apparent reason

    I got my Satellite 1900 303 for about 2 years and no problem. In the last month, I had a problem with him turn off his car suddenly and for no apparent reason. I checked virus and have found no virus. Can anyone suggest why I did this. I was wondering is that he has been making overheated?

    Thank you


    Believe me, there is always a reason why this happens. From your description, I assume that your unit is overheating. If the temperature is too high the unit simply stops.

    You need to clean the device. After that cleaning the unit should work properly again.

    HP Desktop fan accelerates for no apparent reason

    Salvation of the elbow,

    Try this procedure:

    Disconnect the PC and open it. Clean all the dust. Carefully, remove and replace all the cables towards the mother board one at a time. Do the same for memory DIMM and the video and the sound of cards if you have a.  You can buy a can of compressed air to blow the dust out of the heatsink from the CPU.  Plug your PC back in and give it a go.

    If your PC is not current running bios level 5.22 try then upgrade to the latest bios level.  If you are already running 5.22 then try clear the CMOS.

    You can try removing the heat sink aluminum end shown in the picture of the motherboard (lower right corner), remove the old thermal paste with little of isopropyl alcohol and then apply a thermal paste Artic Silver 5 and reattach the heat sink.

  • computer stops at any time for no apparent reason

    It is almost always a hardware problem, not a a Windows. Both
    the most likely causes are overheating and power problems.

  • How can I fix the "drag and drop" feature in Windows 7? It used to work, but now does not work, for no apparent reason!

    How can I fix the "drag and drop" feature in Windows 7?  It used to work, but now does not work, for no apparent reason!

    What happens when you try?  Make sure you drag the icon image and not the text of the name.

    If it still doesn't work there are some registry changes that can try to alleviate the problem.  But because the changes to the registry are tedious and dangerous, I recommend to leave the system to repair it for you.  Here's how:
    1. Type of restore in the search box of the start menu to find and open to restore system files and settings from a restore point.
    2. Click Next, choose a date before the problem started, then click Next once more.
    • This process only takes around 2 minutes and only restores your system files/settings: it will not affect any of your files, documents, photos, emails, or anything else.
    If the system restore does not resolve the problem try this to replace missing or corrupted system files.  Here's how:
    1. Type cmd into the start menu search box, and then press Ctrl-Shift-Enter to launch as administrator.
    2. At the command prompt to start the File System Check, type sfc/scannow .

  • Satellite Pro A210-1AZ - I lose the WIFI connection for no apparent reason

    I am connected to a wireless network with my A210-1AZ. There are 4 wireless networks in my area, belonging to other people on my street. I connect to my network, and everything seems to work fine...

    Up to an hour, I just lost the connection without apparent reason. I click on the ' Connect or disconnect ", and he cannot find + all + 4 wireless networks. I press refresh - nothing. I go to Device Manager, disable then re-enable the best to the wireless network device. Can I do "connect or disconnect", and it shows all 4 networks back. If I connect... for another hour... then I have to do it again.

    It seems worse when I use the network a lot, that is to say. Download large files, sometimes after 10 minutes. If it is fairly inactive, it lasts not more. But it always happens in an hour or two.

    It becomes really annoying!

    Please do BIOS update to the latest version. The problem should be solved.
    By the way: card WLAN that is listed in the Device Manager? Intel or Atheros?

  • My Flash movie stops for no apparent reason.

    With the help of Flash Professional CS5. Publication of Flash Player 9 and ActionScript 3. I also tried to publish for Flash Player 8 and 10.  My film is made up of several short scenes and has minimal animation. It lasts for about 12 minutes and once published and he played stops in a scene, 2 minutes to the end, without apparent reason. There is no script in the entire film except a stop(); at the end. There are scenes with a lot more animation than it stops at. It stops there when I play the swf file on my local computer so when I publish online, it is not a problem of buffering. It happens on two different computers.  I have Flash Player 10 installed.  I deleted all of the scenes except the audo on the stage stop, and it freezes again.  I deleted the audio and the rest and it freezes again.  I'm on the trial of Flash; no limits the length of the movies?

    The animation has more than 16,000 pictures in? If so, it is likely to be the cause of the gel. (And if it is 2 minutes, then I ask you do animation at 120 fps?) It's a little too high...)

    To resolve this problem, you may break your film in parts? You can, for example, split into 10 parts each with a minute and load the next film at the end of each part.

    For the last week or three Firefox updates two or three times for each update. Sometimes it refreshes without obvious reason. For example, I'll be in the middle of typing in the message forum block & it refreshes. Or by filling out an online form. Or simply viewing a page.

    Alternatively, maybe Mozilla can add function, to help users to keep "good" copy configuration, once reaching.
