    Firefox hanging (freezing) with Java, and pdf files

    Anyone else having this problem?

    The firefox knowledge base is less than helpful. All it says is that there is a problem with the plug in.

    Certain websites do this every single time, specifically any large pdf file. and

    I am not having this problem at all...although I am using Firefox 3.6 beta 5. Also...I HATE Adobe Acrobat Reader! I use Foxit Reader:

    Yes on the Java, not sure on the Adobe, because I have the full (writer) version.

    I have had major problems with Firefox in the last month or so. It is with the last 2 updates I think.

    That seemed to do the trick.

    Funny thing about it, it did an automatic update a few days ago, but it gave me a version 5 instead of a version 6.

    Re: Firefox hanging (freezing) with Java, and pdf files

    Anyone else have a ton of problems with Java? I'm constantly fighting with Java plug-ins at work. Some apps only run with certain java plug-ins and it creates a nightmare.
