I guess so many people are aware of that problem. When exiting a fullscreen video, flash player crashed. So I looked at the solution in this site. It told me to disable hardware acceleration. If it worked I am supposed to upgrade my graphic drivers but it is already up-to-date. I don't want to keep my hardware acceleration disabled but when I enable it I still have some problem. Help me! Thanks

Videos that won't play, do work on other browsers like IE and Chrome so I'm assuming this is a Firefox issue

I have tried re-installing over and over again the flashplayer, i even tried rolling back to 11.3 but youtube still won't work in most videos it shows an error message saying "an error has happened please try again later"

I've tried some solutions posted before such as copying files from adobe's folder to firefox's plugins folder. but it didn't help either


I'm using windows 7 x64 firefox 16.0.1 Adobe flash player installed is (supposedly)11.4 but on adobe's check flash player version page, it won't show me the version instead a blank rectangle appears...(chrome and IE, do show it, however..stating that 11.4 is indeed the version installed)

I installed the jdk 1.6u7, and then I open firefox, I see there is a java console 6.0.07 in extension, but in plugins, there is no java. and I can't open java website, it shows I don't install java in my machine, but actually, I have installed jdk 1.6u7. I think only if the java exists in plugins, the website can get the jvm and run.

it seems it is ok if I install a jdk which will create a plugin in plugins, and the extension can't be used.

O/s Win XP 64 bit - Java latest version installed but Firefox Nightly 64 bit will not recognise it after re-install 3 times & re-loading FireFox, IE does see it

Although I had Java latest version installed and IE and Chrome recognise it, i can't get Firefox Nightly 64bit to see Java. Websites with Java functionality in Firefox report that i need to install Java.

I re-installed 3 times, I cleaned out older Java versions and did all other steps in Firefox help articles.

If I go to Firefox plugins page, its says the only plugin I have is Shockwave. If I select the Java option, it tells me to download and install Java - which I have done before several times.

I have shut down and re-opened Firefox many times to get it to see Java.

Java is installed to c:/Program Files(x86). Is Firefox looking for Java in c:/Program Files ??

The website in question is the nVidea driver download page at http://www.geforce.co.uk/drivers, where the auto-detect correct driver function is a Java function. In the end I had to use IE to run the Java function.

Per the title. The issue came up after a Flash update. It seems to work fine in Firefox and Chrome, but when I try to, let's say, watch a YouTube video in Firefox, it won't work. It's not confined to YouTube, either: the same thing happens with Hulu as well as The Nostalgia Critic's website, whose videos are hosted by Blip.tv.

I'm pretty sure that the problem isn't JavaScript or another type of script, because JS appears to work fine - the dropdown list on YouTube's search bar functions how it's supposed to and Wikia's main page loads correctly, and these are functions which I know run off of JS. The same thing holds true for Sliverlight scripts and all of my other script plugins except for Flash.

I've tried clearing my cache and starting a new Firefox profile. I even reinstalled Firefox, but I kept all of my profiles when I did so, so I'm inclined to believe that if indeed it is a problem with Firefox and not with the Flash plugin, then it's a problem with one of the profiles.

In browsing through my extensions, I found Datamngr 1.0, which was obsolete after FF4. Though disabled, there is no "Remove" option. I searched for solutions and apparently it was associated with Searchqu, which was accidentally installed (and immediately uninstalled) several months ago. Unlike others on the forum, I have had no problems with Searchqu popping up unexpectedly. I would, however, like to remove Datamngr 1.0 to reduce the number of extensions that load with Firefox. While I have found many suggestions for removing Searchqu, I have found no effective way to remove Datamngr. Suggestions directly related to Datamngr removal would be greatly appreciated.

FYI: I am running FF8 on Win7 Home Premium (x64) environment.

The summary says it all.

The way this got in (though gen crawler isn't enabled) was media finder and I've already uninstalled it and everything that it came with. Please help because it's still appearing.

Firefox keeps crashing/freezing becomes sluggish when playing a flash video. I will still be able to watch the video but I can not kill the tab without going into the task manager and killing either flash or Firefox. Firefox works perfectly when running early versions of Flash 10, but certain websites are requiring Flash 11.4 to run. I have disabled hardware acceleration in both flash and firefox and still fails to work properly.

After both firefox and flash upgraded to the newest versions i've found i have no video for certain flash sites. Youtube works fine but sites like metacafe.com don't.

I've tried rolling back to firefox 13.0.0. I've aso tried rolling flash back to 11.2 and 10.3 to no avail. I have also tried disabling protected mode for flash, still no video. I have done a complete reinstall of both firefox (including deleting my profile data) and flash, but it still won't work.

The only time i get video is when i restart firefox in safe mode. However when i restart in normal mode with all addons disabled i get no video. I don't have realplayer installed either.

Anyone got any ideas as to what I could try that i haven't already?

I often view a map from a government mapping service that requires a plugin (from Autodesk). On my older computer running Win XP and FF12 the plugin was installed in the plugins folder of Firefox.

I now have a new computer running Win7 and FF12 but there is no plugins folder. Where do I install the plugin so it appears in the plugins list under Tools>Addons>Plugins?

Thanks in advance.
