after an update for flash now flash has stopped working completely. for embedded and normal playing default is html which takes lot of memories .

If i change the config in firefox in about:config for media types and enforces the flash instead of html then none of videos or websites is opening the media content.

why need flash >>Html consumes lot of memory and it jitters and it buffers the whole media without permission and deflaut quality rate is 360p which cannot be changed and unnecessarily cost the data overflow indirectly costing the user to pay for more data.

before the update of flash the youtube and other website were playing in flash mode which was very easy on memory and in previous security updates also flash was running smoothly.


kindly Firefox forum members lets find the solution for this bug/problem.


steps tired:

enabled/disabled webm and other media types in config but it did not worked. tired older version of flash update that too failed.
