I have the same issues with my Win XP Professional 32 Bit/FF27.0.1/Avast Free Antivirus machine, but none of it with another WIN 7 Professional 64 Bit/FF 27.0.1/Avast Free Antivirus system. So I suspect the OS.

Best regards!

Default Psafe locks up.

I was trying to upload "garagebandforwindows" on my XP machine.........the program of course had "PSafe" as a rider "anti-viral" program......my poor XP ground down to a halt, locked up...beware all.

I'm running FF28.0 and am seeing sporadic slow downs where my cursor has a blinking circle next to it.

I've seen this both on my machine at work (Win 7 HPZ620) and at home (Linux 14). If I close the browser tab for diyAudio, the problem ceases immediately. When I open a new tab and go to diyAudio, it usually is fine for a while and starts acting up again.

I've only seen the problem when I have a tab open with diyAudio in it.

When this happens, it effects my entire system. For instance, if I try to edit a document in word I can type and not see any text addition for several seconds.

Selecting other programs will result in a long pause before any activity is seen.

I noticed something like this occasionally over the last few days. (I also have Firefox 28.) It seems to be related to Adobe Flash - at least, going to Task Mangler and shutting down Flash seems to clear the problem.

I am running FF 28.0 and have not updated Flash in a couple of months and do not seem to be having an issue so far. OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.. I pretty much always have at least one diyA tab open at all times, and often many more.

I'm running 12.0.0.77 and there is a newer version 13.0.0.182, so I guess I'll try to update it and see if that fixes it.

I noticed today that I have problems with You Tube as well, which would be using the flash player also. So this is a high probability.

Well, no joy.

It comes and goes, but is still here. When it happens it is like near 100% cpu utilization is happening.

I can move the cursor, but I can not click on anything.

I'll just have to use IE for now. FF still does it, and so far only with this site.

If I disable all add-ons the problem stops. The only add-on I have is avast's security. Still using XP...
