It has recently become known, that three days passed after Mozilla added its crash Firefox protection when the company had to introduce one more release on Friday. The reason for that was the fact that Firefox users who used to play Farmville on Facebook complained that their browser simply shut down all of a sudden.
Mozilla’s new release is called OOPP – out of process plug-ins – that is specially created to boost the browser in case its plug-in crashes. This new addon will work together with Firefox 3.6.4.
The user will receive a message from Firefox if his Microsoft’s Silverlight, Apple’s QuickTime or Adobe’s Flash Player don’t respond for more than 10 seconds or totally crashes. He will be notified by the browser that Firefox has already killed that defective plug-in.
But 10 seconds of non-responsiveness happened to be too short for some users who use older computers and who have to wait for more than 10 seconds for these applications to respond.
That is why the small drawback was corrected in Firefox 3.6.6 in which the default time for applications response was extended to 45 seconds. That newest Firefox version was released on 25, June.
