The system is Windows XP service pack 3. The RAM is 992 Mo, the processor is Pentium IV 2.4GHz. I always make an update of Flash when a notification of an update appears. I launch Mozilla Firefox , which is of version 5 and I open Facebook. I play Zynga poker , which is a Flash game, in Facebook. When playing Zynga poker then after few minutes the system freezes.

So how to remove this freeze ?

Can you post a screenshot of the Task Manager processes list when you are using Firefox/Flash? How much resources is your computer using when this happens? –  iglvzx Jan 11 '12 at 6:35
    
Try the latest version of Firefox Portable, and let me know if you have the same problem. It may be an issue with your Firefox installation or profile. –  iglvzx Jan 11 '12 at 6:37
    
I prefer not make such an installation because the computer I am using is my office computer. So I will not take any risk to corrupt it. –  Andy Frédéric ANDRIANIAINA Jan 11 '12 at 6:39
    
Firefox Portable installs to a self-contained folder. It's purpose is to to be used on any Windows PC, with any user privileges. I recommend this approach for troubleshooting web browser issues, because it is easy and safe. If Firefox Portable works well on your PC, then Firefox can be fixed to work well, too. –  iglvzx Jan 11 '12 at 6:41
    
Will there be any conflicts with the already installed Mozilla Firefox ? –  Andy Frédéric ANDRIANIAINA Jan 11 '12 at 6:44

If it's the system freezing, try disabling hardware acceleration in Flash Player. Maybe bad video drivers are causing the system to lock up.
