Flash Builder 4.5 with Firefox - crashes and no performance data. How to fix?

I am an experienced Flex developer, but new to the Flash Builder 4.5 Profiler.  I'm using Firefox 5.0 and Shockwave Flash 10.2.153.1.  Windows XP.

I have several problems:

1) in the profile view during a run, the buttons are dimmed and therefore I cannot "Capture Performance Profile".

2) almost every time I run, the Flash Player in Firefox crashes (And now worse, using that same profile, Firefox crashes randomly, but quickly on ANY web pages.  I smell a re-install of Firefox coming.)

3) there is the option to configure for the Standalone Flash Player and a browser.  How do I say WHICH one to use for a given profile run?

If I configure the browser to be IE, Firefox runs anyway.

Any ideas?  Suggestions?  Thanks for the time.

I have solved the crash by reinstalling the latest Flash Player.

The configuration issue is not as important.

The solution was simple.  In the "Profile" view, select the "[Running]" instance.  This enables the important buttons, like "Capture".

This causes a "Performance Profile" line to appear, linked to the running instance.  Double click to view the info.

Thanks for listening.

A thing to keep in mind is that Firefox's (4+) plugin hang detector will kill flash player if it thinks it is taking too much time.

You can disable this behavior in Firefox by:

  1. Type in about:config in the address bar and hit enter.
  2. Agree that you'll be careful.
  3. Type in dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs. Change the value to -1.
  4. Restart Firefox.
