What could be the cause of Firefox continually shutting down on my computer?
This problem happens for a variety of reasons but the main reason or cause that this happens to me is because of a new add-on. Try to uninstall any recent add ons and see if that helps. Otherwise I have had to remove all instances of firefox from my computer and then restart and download a new "clean" version of Firefox. Try starting FireFox in Safe Mode (found in the start menu)

Answer . It is virtually impossible, which is why most operating systems ask at least once "are you sure you want to shut down?" The shut down or restart process immediately begins terminating not only visible running programs but also essential processes in the background. If the procedure w…as aborted, the operating system would be unstable because things it expected to be available - even minor processes - would have closed. This would cause even basic operations to fail. ( Full Answer )

Start up you computer, run it in safe mode, and then scan your computer for viruses. Remove ALL suspicious programs your computer detects.
Without more information no one will be able to answer you question with any accuracy. Do a virus and anti spy/malware check to make sure you system is clean and a virus is not force rebuting your PC. I recommend NOD 32 (free trial) or AVG (free). If this doesnt find anything check that your PC …auto updates don't have permission to auto reboot your PC. Check you don't have an auto sleep setup when the PC is idle. Other than this all I can think of with such little information is to re-install your operating system, make sure you have all your drivers before attempting this. ( Full Answer )
if your computer runs for a while then shuts down, this is often a lack of power to the system. Try removing anything you can live without (modem card if you use ethernet, soundcard, extra fans) and see if will work then. Most likely this won't work but its worth a shot as the only other alternative… if it is a lack of power, is to buy a new PSU will will run you around $100-$200 and is the most difficult piece to install in a computer. . Also you can use a tool to diagnose whether it is a software problem, try ErrorFix. http://www.make-pc-faster.com/ ( Full Answer )
Your computer is most likely slow to shut down because there are too many processes running, so the system has to safely close all of them. If you want to fix this, press Ctrl+alt+delete and then go to processes tab and close all under your username that you use to log into the computer. Once tha…t is done try shutting down the computer. It should run faster. If you need to shut it down in a case of emergency, hold the power button for 15 seconds and it will shut down at the end. Hope this helps! ( Full Answer )
Log off, wait , shut down, depending on your system it may take time and it will tell you when it is safe to turn off on windows 98.
If your computer is shutting down when it starts theres something wrong with one of the startup programs. While booting start the computer in safe mode((continuously press F8 at the time of booting)). Click on start-->run. Type "msconfig" and press enter. A new window opens. Click on the startup tab…. Click on disable all. Now restart the computer in normal mode. If it starts normally then locate the program causing this conflict by enabling some programs one by one in the msconfig startup menu((This time in normal mode only)). I think it will work If it still not work, you can try a registry clean tool download registry easy here http://www.keep-pc-clean.com/ ( Full Answer )
Generally it will be a major error with a program you are running, an incorrect setting in the OS, a virus infection, or overheated CPU that causes the operating system to quit. Run an antivirus/malware scan to eliminate that possibility. Find out which program caused the fatal error. ( What wer…e you using when it crashed?) You can return your computer OS to its default settings. ( Full Answer )

There are many possible reasons why a computer shuts down without warning. Some of these include a) A loose power connection b) Loose memory (RAM) in the socket c) A SW that is causing a machine to hang/crash d) Any hardware problem e.g. in the power supply e) Heating if the cooling fans (on proce…ssor heatsink or computer body) are not working or if air vents are blocked, there may be a thermal shutdown after some time of computer operation. If you post exast symptoms and when it happens you can get a better more accurate response. ( Full Answer )
Firefox can cause computer slow-downs, especially if it has toomany add-ons and is not optimized for your Internet connectionsettings and your hardware. If you feel that Firefox is too slow,you should optimize the settings (you can use optimization softwareto do that) or switch to a more lightweight… browser, like GoogleChrome. If the above doesn't work, please consider that Firefox hasrecently been having problems with adobe flash as well. Even if youaren't watching a video currently, if you had at one point sinceyour most resent start up of fire fox it holds onto portions ofthat video's or web application's memory until it shuts down. Themore videos or web programs that open that use flash (adobe flash)the more memory will be used until eventually you're stacking over5,000 mb's in your RAM. This is not the fault of any add-on's suchas Java or Add Block Plus. Solutions: 1) Restart Firefox 2) Youtube seems to be the biggest culprit/cause of the memoryleakage (or extra storage of memory through flash player onto yourRAM.) So simply switch to HTML5 format. Various ways of doing thisbut here are a few options. 2.1) Go to youtube.com/html5 or google search it and at the bottomthere should be a button that says something like, "play all videosin HTML5", your current settings should be/generally are set to use"default". 2.2) Use add-ons such as YouTube ALL HTML5. They are free todownload and easy to find using google, other default searchproviders, or simply click on tools > add-ons to open Firefox'sadd-on center where you will be able to search and download forfree. 2) Uninstall Flash player and/or it's add-on's/extensions so theywon't function with firefox (not as recommended as many webapplications use Flash. Unless you know exactly what to reroute allweb applications through, just don't do it. Leave it on so you maydefault back to it if necessary. If you do disable it however thenmost websites, such as youtube, should default to another player orHTML5 format.) 3) install an add on that stops flash player. (YouTube center usedto work great, but now you tube has learned how to block most ofit's applications) 3.1) Install video without flash (My favorite. However, youtubecomments and other services won't work unless you disable it whichcan be done by pressing the add on's button that can be installednext to your search bar. You may need to reload the webpage onceenabled/disabled. As this is such a hassle, even though I reallylike this player as it's lightning fast on my computer and superHigh Def, the hassle of having to disable and re enable is too mucha hassle for the average user.) 3.2) Another option is to install VLC youtube shortcut (VLC player,which is free to download, will be needed for this one) or othersimilar programs. What it does is will allow your web videos tostream directly through a program on your coumputer (such as VLC myfavoite rendering program) Please take note that I have tried dozens of solutions and I havefound no others that work and that Flash is indeed the mainproblem. Other solutions will improve performance marginally, byabout 20%, but why settle for less then 100% of your computerscapacity? ( Full Answer )
So that you can save power and turn it on the next time you use it. A: You don't have to completely shut it down if you plan on using it within the next few hours. I would recommend placing it in Standby. Standby can cut power to peripheral devices, your monitor, even your hard drive, but main…tains power to your computer's memory so you don't lose your work.

Certain worms that get into your computer shut down your computer when the worm loads. One specific worm is the MSBLAST.exe and W32.Blaster... and also if you search on YouTube you can find people renaming files and creating a fake virus message which shuts down your computer.
Simple answer: Unplug it! Complex answer: Need more information... what operating system does it have? do you have administrative rights on either computer? are the computers both connected to a network?

Computers should be shut down properly to make sure that all files are closed properly. Failure to close files correctly can cause a loss of data or corruption of the data.
If you are using Windows, when you tell the system to shut down, any open applications will try to stop the shut down and windows will open a window showing you all those programs and attempt to close them. You can skip the process by pressing Force Shutdown however there is no guarantee that your s…aved data within those programs will remain.and then you save ( Full Answer )
You use the power button on the tower to turn it on. To shut it down, go to 'Start' and click shut down.
no it cannot, a monitor is an output device,it in no way affects the workings of a computer and how it functions. it Cannot send any signals or orders to the CPU to make it shut down.
Hold the power button for 10 seconds, this forces the hardware to shutdown. The only problem is if the computer is writing to the hard drive, when you do this it can cause small corruptions in data.
Yes it can, it isn't really a virus it just goes to command prompt and shuts down your pc.
there are a a couple r few ways to do this. One way is by going to the start menu and selecting shut down, turn off or whatever Ur computer uses. Or if u have a laptop just press the power button, and if not u can also just press the main power button on the case. Happy i could help!
Sometimes this is a safety precaution. The Cpu has been notified by the hard drive that a possible infection has just occurred or a system failure is prominent. The computer instantly shuts down the usual way, but by it self and is a sign you need to get your drives checked for viruses. You should b…ack up your Drives onto portable drives and see the computer to a technician. Another reason is due to overheating. When at high temperatures, data doesn't flow as fast as it would when cold. The computer automatically shuts down to prevent excess data loss and hardware damage. Try installing a program called speccy. That will let you know the different temperatures and speeds and other information about the computer. You can tell what part of the computer is at the highest temperature and either a new fan , or an internal clean out with an anti static wrist bracelet should help. ( Full Answer )

I would check for dust inside the computer also try and put some new CPU ceramic compound clear all fans and heat sink from dust as well as the motherboard. Seems to me it is a heat problem. if it was a power supply problem the computer would have a hard time turning on. did your computer used… to move real slow? lagged? or gave out constant heat at high levels? if yes i suggest to clean your PC from dust. Buy a duster from wal-mart or any electronics store they are usually less than $15. ( Full Answer )
You just press the start button and then press shut down!! People these days don't do things simply!!

close out all programs, & browsers, then go to start, then over to turn off computer, click on that & a box will open with stand by, turn off & restart, stand by puts the computer to sleep, you click turn off & the computer shut down & save your settings.
Some computers are caused to shut down by them self because of many reasons. In a lot of the cases the computer shuts down because of over heating and in the worse situations, they may shut down because of a dangerous virus.
