Users of Firefox 15.01 are experiencing very slow Internet connections, and Flash crashes.

This is fixed by uninstalling the latest flash plug-in, assuming its V11 or later, and replacing it with V 10.3 from the Adobe site http://forums.adobe.com/thread/889580.

Some folks are lucky and dont see the prob, others do, - I have been troubleshooting for two days to solve it.

Its happens on Windows 7 BTW.

Workstation and laptop - Win7 - no problems and I run quite a lot video intensive content especially from Vimeo -- HD 1080p . Perhaps you have a problem your end, maybe " it is your ISP at fault" ;=))

Not anymore since I rolled back Flash, - both Firefox and Adobe acknowledge the issue and are both working on it.

You must have the latest flash plugin to have the problem. Another :feature: of the problem is the rolling circle at the top left of Firefox doesnt stop circling even when a site is loaded. Both are fixed for me with rolling back the Flash plug-in.

Its a widespread problem. not just me, - all over the Firefox and Adobe forums, - Im just trying to pass the information along to anyone affected and save a couple of days of troubleshooting.

There a a lucky few that dont have the problem - sounds like Im not one of the lucky ones!

No problems with firefox here. Only because I stopped using it after they begun issuing updates every other week. I thout it obvious that mozilla are having security problems if they have to update so often so I decided to stop using firefox

No speed probs here but since a few updates ago, Firefox isn't opening tabs from my previous session although it's set do do so. Not a problem but annoying.

My Firefox is OK. I've got no add-ons.

I had same problems with Firefox a few weeks ago, started after Adobe install of latest flash player update, couldn't get any videos to play from both PC and web, searched loads of forums and yes Adobe Flash player / Firefox problems have been very prominent for the past while, however none of the add ons or fixes worked for me...until I uninstalled 'Rapport', the online banking security download, now everything is as was, perfect.
