Firefox 3.6.4 trouble with Farmville

In Firefox version 3.6.4, Mozilla is adding features 'out-of-process plug-ins' (OOPP). OOPP is a feature designed to protect the browser to continue running when the crash occurred on a plugin.

If Flash Player plugin types, Quick Time or Silverlight experience crashes or does not respond for more than 10 seconds, then the Firefox 3.6.4 will display a message informing that the browser has turned off the plugin. But apparently this OOPP features cause problems in some users.

"After the release of Firefox 3.6.4, we heard from some users, especially those using older computers, they expect a longer time when the plugin does not provide a response, especially when they're playing games," wrote the director of Firefox, Mike Beltzner, the blog Mozilla official.

"They felt the default time limit of 10 seconds was too short," he added.

"Fifefox 3.6.4 has been released and we see more and more reports that some users can not play because of Farmville Farmville cause the browser hangs for a long time and trigger us off," said Mozilla developer, Justin Dolske.

Then what is the solution? Users are welcome to update Firefox to version 3.6.6 which has a longer time limit, namely 45 seconds. Simply download the new edition or by selecting 'Check for Updates' from the menu 'Help' in the browser.

Another solution, as quoted from Computer World, Wednesday (06/30/2010), is to disable OOPP. This step will turn off crash protection features which are owned by Firefox.
