Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

Memory leaks when watching video full screen

When ever i watch videos i get memory leak, if that's the right word to call it, to avoid video lags i new use only 1 video Tab & not 2 like in the past, its just some sources are slow with loading, that why i use to use 2, awry time i click on next EP memory usage grows & awry time i click on full-screen it grows even more & larger number, depending source, some sources use RAM & some committed memory (but with both memory usage grows with each video), so far anime sources use committed & TV series sources ram, also there was talk that Firefox 36 will be free of Flash, that it goes over to HTML5, but i still see flash in my plugins & also all videos still use flash, with anime ram usage increases to a bit, but not as much as with TV series sources, when will the memory leak be fixed?


EDIT: lets just say it leaks memory when watching videos, its just worse in full screen, with TV series it doesn't matter full screen or not, still takes a lot of ram, well in the end of the day its a lot, starts from over 300MB & grows, some sources leak ram & some committed


all my adds, its for extra information

Adblock Edge, Enforce Encryption, Ghostery , More In Content UI +.

this are not known as problem creators, just in case some1 thinks i mite have bad adds

Anytime I want to view a video from within Firefox (YouTube or other) I am not able to view it. With YouTube I get the message "Error occurred. Please try again later." Other videos just give a blank page. I checked my plugins, they are all up to date. I am using Firefox version 13.0.1. I don't have this problem when I use other browsers such as IE. Any help would be appreciated.

Installed Firefox 13 yesterday. Now flash doesn't work. Have done all the supposed fixes to no avail. Have uninstalled and reinstalled flash. I'm at my wits end with this issue. I'm a web designer who uses flash in a number of my sites. VERY IRRITATING when my sites don't display properly. Anyone have a solution other than the pat Mozilla "fixes"?

Before an administrator responds, please read, as I have noticed that many times concerning this issue, in other threads, the admins will respond like cartoon characters, not really listening to what people are saying. I have no extensions or add-ons in Firefox (latest version), Chrome (latest version), and Internet Explorer. When I have a blank page open, and only one page, Chrome is using 52M of RAM, IE is using 47M, and Firefox is using 153M. It is a freshly-reinstalled copy, I have no preferences at all, no bookmarks, nothing. Can anyone explain why Firefox is required to use three times as much memory as the other two competitors?

I have the latest version of flash player installed and enabled. When I go to Adobe's test page, it recognizes the install and lists the correct version number, but the test animation at the top of the page fails to load properly. Also, the applications handler in Firefox's 'options' menu fails to list any flash compatible file types. On YouTube, I'm met with the video throbber stuck, unmoving, against a black rectangle. Right clicking the video and trying to view the 'settings' dialog does nothing.

I have tried deleting 'pluginreg.dat' and a number of other solutions I've found online, but nothing has made a difference. My other plugins (java, acrobat, etc.) all work fine. Thanks, in advance, for any help.

I have been chatting on a couple of sites based on 123 Flash Chat software. During the last week, I have been unable to scroll in any direction while in these sites. All of the other functions in the rooms work fine. I completely nuked Flash Player and reinstalled it - the problem is still there. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?? It is really annoying to have to use the scroll bar instead of the mouse if I miss something.

I am on a Mac Pro running OS 10.10.2. Flash Player is up to date. Firefox is version 37.0.1. I am using the same extensions that I have always used - AdBlockPlus, Facebook Purity, Classic Theme Restorer, and FlashBlock (the chat sites are in the white list for this extension).

If anyone has any ideas, your input will be greatly appreciated.

P.S. One other problem is that when I try to use a keyboard shortcut when I am in one of the two chat windows to open a new window, it does nothing. If I go to another website window, the keyboard shortcut works just fine.

With the terrible issues recently with Flash 12, I opted to use the extended support version of Flash 11.7r700.

The plugin checker page, however, shows that my flash is supposedly "vulnerable" but it is most definitely not (it's the latest updated version offered by adobe in their extended support cycle for corporate use)

Having trouble logging into my firefox account to ask a question. Since the change to Firefox 40, I can't load Farmville2 on Firefox. I can open my inbox and answer requests but I have to use chrome to play, but I would prefer to use Firefox.Also I was asked to take a Firefox survey but when I was done and hit submit...it wouldn't submit....another survey today asked if I was happy with Firefox, when I said no, it didn't even ask why (I was hoping to contact someone to fix the problems with zynga), just closed the survey.  ???? I have tried to find a contact us button, but just keep getting redirected to other places. I hope someone can help me with this problem

I just refreshed and nothing has changed so far.

Does anyone else have their Flash Plug-in NOT auto-update? I've been watching the last few Flash Updates from Adobe for a while and for me, they do not Auto-Update. I had to manually install version 32.0.0.171. I've manually installed the Adobe Shockwave Flash for years, but only recently waited to see if it would Auto-Update.

I noticed with the two other Plug-ins, they have Update buttons for Default / On / Off. The Flash Plug-in does not have these buttons. Is this why it does not / will not Auto-Update?

Anyway, I received an eMail today about the Latest Flash Update:



APSB19-26 : Security Update Available for Adobe Flash Player!

Using Adobe flash and Firefox build 49 worked fine with thesettlersonline.com, great even until it was updated to 52. Now is is sooooo slow, scrolling around the island on settlers online is almost impossible the "lag" is so extreme. Tried deleting cashe and temp files, even re-imaged the machine - again great until Firefox is updated. Something has gone desperately wrong with the coding. Installed Chrome and that flies. Get it sorted.

I am trying to get flash to work with Firefox on my mac OSX 10.6.8 VM. I had an old version of flash and I just updated it. According to adobe's help page (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html), the most recent version *is* installed but the animation on that page doesn't appear, nor does any other flash-based site seem to work. In the add-ons page, shockwave flash is present, and the setting is "always activate." In every way it seems to be successfully installed, but firefox has no idea it is there. Flash works just fine for Safari. I've uninstalled and reinstalled flash completely, several times. I've restarted my VM at different points during this process. Elsewhere on this site I found advice suggesting that I try to delete pluginreg.dat. No dice. If I check the about:plugins page it states that flash is present and enabled. But it simply doesn't work.

The only possible thing I can think of is that while flash is installed in the default directory, firefox is in a custom directory. (I use this VM for automated browser testing so I have several versions of firefox installed. Flash isn't working on any of them.) Any advice?
