The nicest folks down at Adobe have seen fit to blow away Adobe Flash support for Linux. I guarantee you, there's nothing wrong down there, I guarantee. < That line sounds familiar, I'm trying to place the Joker.

I blew away the out-of-date Flash plugin, and about a month or so ago, followed the instructions in this next reference, to replace it with gnash and liblightsparkplugin.so.

https://www.linux.com/learn/weekend-project-open-source-alternatives-adobe-flash-linux

I am running Linux Mint 17.3 MATE 64-bit with Firefox 47.0.

liblightsparkplugin was worthless. It never performed a lick of work. I may have this figured out why: After I installed it, Firefox knows of it, but perhaps the file disappeared. I attempted to uninstall and it does not exist. "apt-get remove" didn't find it, Package Manager didn't find it, Software Center did not list it as either available to install or to indicate that it was installed. Find command did not find the file on my computer. I seem to have a "registry" entry in my Firefox profile pointing to the missing file.

A shot in the dark: I searched about:config for the file name. Nothing.

What file might I look in in my Profile that is holding this dead-end reference?

Seeing that the "Lightspark" source in the Linux.com reference seems to have nothing to download, what do we have in 2016 to do Flash in Firefox?


Here is what I can do with the installed plugin: It identifies as Shockwave Flash 12.1 r720 (more...). I click more, it identifies the file as liblightsparkplugin.so. I can set the plugin to never enable, always ask, always enable.

When never enabled, the interactive Flash-powered site is asking for Adobe Flash. (Such nice folks!) When always ask, the site asks to enable the plugin. Once enabled, the Flash content area is blank. When always enabled, the Flash content area is blank. Seems in keeping with a missing file.

I can watch CNN video, not CBSN News or ABC News. If I switch off the dead plugin I can watch MSNBC.

Firefox 48.0 on Ubuntu (Virtual Box guest machine on Windows 7 host). I have searched long and hard all over the net and cannot find anything that works. The js is in shared windows folder, mounted within Ubuntu, as is the whole web app. Generally the app works fine, but if I have to tweak a Java Script, the browser will not use the new file. I have tried:

  • Developer web console is open and "Disable Cache" is checked.
  • ctrl-r
  • ctrl-shift-r
  • ctrl-F5
  • Holding own shift when pressing the browser reload button.
  • Going to Menu|Preferences|Advanced|Network and pressing [Clear Now]

I am using a framework so I cannot add a version/timestamp on the end of the script file name.

The only way I have found that works so far is to shutdown the machine and bring it up again. That takes a long time for a simple script tweak/test to show up. It is wasting a LOT of my time...

Please, is there a faster, easier way to get Firefox to use that new file?

I know it is full screen, I want it full screen, I know how to exit full screen, I simply don't want a reminder to constantly flash up each time I access a control near the top of the screen.

Actually website support has told me it is a common complaint they have been asked multiple times, and requested I share any solution I find.

This question has been asked and answered before but the page returns 404

Thank you in anticipation.

Running Firefox on Windows 10 on my laptop (I upgraded from WIndows 8.1 a month or two ago), the Flash Player plugin hasn't been working and said it was out of date and that the latest version should be installed. When I try to install it I get a message

     Adobe Flash Player
     Application initialization error.

On advice I tried uninstalling the previous version and deleting the downloaded exe file before trying again, but I still get the same error message. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and have tried rebooting my laptop between various stages (as suggested in a reply to a similar post), but whatever I try, I still get the same error message.

I have Firefox ver 47 running on WIN 10 Pro. This past week Firefox has started REFUSING to download zip files. Note: I have just started using WIN10 Pro (upgraded from WIN 7 Ultimate). I can say I did not have any problems downloading ZIP files using WIN 7. I can also say Microsoft EDGE browser has no problem downloading the ZIP files that Firefox refuses to download. The requested ZIP file does not appear in the requested folder location and when I check the download folder the ZIP file is there with the error

“ BLOCKED:  May contain a virus or spyware ---- comcast.net".   

I have checked with Comcast, my email provider, they claim they do not block ZIP files and say they do not know why/where the comcast.net text was generated. Again EDGE did not attach any caution or error. Also I know who sent the file (actually it was my wife in the next room), have opened it and the contents were as expected.

Has Firefox started BLOCKING and or scanning ZIP files?.

I restarted Firefox with all AD-on’s disabled and in Safe mode. Firefox had no problem downloading the same ZIP file it had refused to download in NORMAL mode. I checked the adD-on’s and attachments did not see any that looked suspicious or with indications that they dealt with spyware.

Anybdy have comments/suggestions what might be causing Firefox to BLOCK ZIP files, in WIN 10?

Many pages take too long to load. In the lower left-hand corner, "Connecting to" or "Transferring data from" messages appear. The Esc key does not work. How do I get FIrefox to break the connection and stop loading the webpage without closing the tab? Sometimes closing the tab does not work, either, and my modem shows traffic even after Firefox is closed.
