flash player crash despite using listed fixes

more options

Firefox browser 50.1.0. I have the latest Flash Player version (24.0 r0). In Flash control panel (access via IE/Edge), I have set to not use Hardware acceleration. In Flash options (F/Fox), I have disabled Protected Mode. In F/Fox, I have disabled "Use hardware acceleration when available". I have an NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics card, using the latest drivers (376.33). I've uninstalled & re-installed the graphics drivers. Windows 10 (64-bit) Professional - new installation (only a couple of weeks old).

Yet... every time I attempt to access a site, any site, that uses Flash, the player crashes before displaying any video at all. When visiting the same sites in IE or Edge - all works fine. Any clues?
