Firefox 3.6.6 ReleasedMozilla has recently released an update for Firefox 3.6 branch that increases plugin hang detector timeout.

Instead of terminating non responsive plugin after 10 seconds (which is way too low), it will now wait for a total of 45 seconds.

You may also increase or decrease value by modifying dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs attribute in Firefox config.

Download.

    any reason for the surprising version numbering?

      I believe they found some sort of issue with 3.6.5 and quickly released 3.6.6 after. Can’t confirm that though.

        But there never was a 3.6.5!

          Allright. It was skipped to synch version numbers between Firefox and Firefox for mobile.
