Shockwave Errors & Firefox -_-

  1. Hello all,

    I've been using Firefox for about a year now, and it has been really nice since then. Recently, I've been recieving an error similiar to this: "Shockwave has performed an illegal operation" and then it gives me the option of Showing these errors continuously during this session or not. After I click Ok, I cannot switch between tabs, play videos, or anything unless I close/restart Firefox, in which the error comes up again. For some wierd reason, even after I shut down Firefox, it is still running under Windows Task Manager =/. I'm on Windows XP by the way :).

    I have:
    -Uninstalled/Reinstalled Firefox
    -Updated Shockwave

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

    Try uninstalling Firefox while in safe mode, then go to Run>type REGEDIT, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER>scroll down to software then Mozilla and delete the Firefox folder (s) then do the same under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Close regedit and go to C:/program files>Mozilla and delete the Firefox folder. Restart the computer and reinstall a fresh copy of Firefox from Mozilla's website.
