    There may be an issue with the 64bit version. I'm running the 32bit version and don't have near the problems you have.

    I have never had Pale moon crash inn x64 or x32. I also use an addon called YouTube All HTML5 which I altered the install.rdf to allow install into PM. You can get it here. This will make YouTube videos play in HTML5 instead of the suck fest Flash. https://app.box.com/s/fbvn82bart92gixhubg58g7gbo8903wg

    Do you have hardware acceleration on?

    Hi guys i discovered that on one of my PC's FireFox works best on this Streaming IPTV fubotv that i subscribe for, then in Chrome or Edge,i don't know why? also discovered that Ublock Origin works great in Fire fox and in Chrome without doing any wish lists.

    I looked through the last few pages of conversation, not seeing much on Microsoft's new Edge browser. How is everyone feeling about it? Personally it just feels like what I would have expected with an IE12 release and I still run into many of the same problems with Edge as I did with IE11 in terms of being fast consistently and rendering pages. Anyone else feeling the same way?

    One thing i know for sure if you are a sports fanatic don't stream on Edge cause you are going to one of those streaming sites that are full of adds,you will be screwed,since there is no Adblock on WIn based browsers,so Firefox or Chrome are the Champions these days.

    Thanks Agent; i use the tree browsers Chrome,Firefox ,Edge for streaming cause on some IPTV some times i get better streaming on a different browser,so some times if i'm getting buffering issues in Chrome and change to Firefox i have less buffering and vise versa,and for example on Chrome i get this:
    note: this issue is only in ""firstrawsports"" streaming site not UTUBE ; Also note that this only happen in Lenovo Think Center M71 with Ati 6450 card on My HP Dv5?6 laptop with same set up it doesn't happen.
    If i change to Firefox i don't have this issue,

    now Agent what version of IE are you running and how good it is! does it work good in Win 10? thanks apreciate.

    I use Pale Moon and I did install Adblock in IE. Sometimes I have to use IE or my plain vanilla Firefox or Cyberfox when a website doesn't work with all my addons installed.

    Flash is a PITA and needs to be gotten rid of in place with HTML 5. In Firefox check out the addon YouTube All HTML5. That will render videos in HTML5 instead of Flash. For Chrome check this out: http://www.guidingtech.com/35075/force-html5-videos/

    Thanks Agent ,but i don't think Espn3,Fubotv,and other streaming sites use Html5!,if not then i have no use for Html5,correct me if i'm wrong'
    i even asked my Iptv Fubotv provider why don't they use Html5 and they said,it's a different video streaming structure than what they have , i think Netflix uses html5!.



    Also i have swapped my video card from Ati Hd6450 to Integrated Hd 2000 and it runs very smooth on google chrome and i don't have the issue of not being able to watch full screen on firstrowstreaming videos as it shows in the Utube video; see video;

    http://www.computerforum.com/threads/small-video-screen-puzzle-help.235678/

    i don't understand why i get this issue on Ati Hd 6450 card and not on the Integrated hd2000,
    the Ati6450 should be better than Integrated Hd2000!.

    Either a bad card or you needed to update the video driver.

    Thanks Johnb35; can't be that because if i use firefox on this same streaming site it will not have that issue,i did not try edge cause it does't have adblock so is too risky

    Bad browser addon then.

    Download and run this.

    1.

    Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.



    •Please close all open programs and internet browsers.
    •Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
    •Click on Scan.
    •After the scan you will need to click on clean for it to delete the adware.
    •Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
    •Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
    •You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Sn].txt as well - n is the order number.

    Having suffered from having continual plugin crasjes with my favoured Forefox, I uploaded Chrome.

    First I found the bookmarks toolbar was not too special the I discovered that a web upload pcricket page I use frquently would not run on Google. So that was the end of that. No uninstalled.

    This has however still not stopped my "Adobe Flash player has crashed Reload page, it is happening so often it has become rediculous.

    No, it's that you tend to typo a lot, and I had mo idea that PCcricket was the name of the service you were trying to use.

    Im sorry at my age typing is not too great, the bottom line is I have gone back to Firefox and its continual Adobe crashes - very frustating.
