Adobe Flash crashes endlessly, reset or update does no good

I have dealt with this for years. I have "reset" Firefox numerous times, I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled version 16.0.0.235. After I uninstalled and updated it ran for a while but I am back to the "Flash is busy" message. The only way I can go on is to stop the plug in, or disable it, but of course then I have no video. I installed "Videowithoutflash" (I think that was the name of it listed with Firefox extension and highly reviewed, and it all ran fine for about a day. But then the next day no videos would play unless I enabled flash, and then it soon starts crashing again. This is a problem for years now. I have been through many forums trying to find an answer, nothing works, or if it does not for long. Is there not some way to get rid of Adobe Flash and play videos? Are there any browsers that don't use flash for viewing videos? Help! Thanks in advance Bill

Flash block {web link} Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on it

Hi,

Try these 2 solutions:


http://www.ghacks.net/2012/06/10/flash-player-update-fix-freezes-crashes-in-firefox/

http://www.ghacks.net/2014/12/21/how-to-disable-flash-player-protected-mode-in-firefox/


Both worked for me. It entails disabling "protected mode" for Adobe Flash running within Firefox.

By default, Adobe has enabled protected mode in Firefox to protect users from malicious content hidden/embedded within websites, but some users have had problems where Firefox starts to hang, crashes, or freezes whenever a page with flash content is loaded.

Disabling protected mode should fix your problem!

Thanks, Sweck, I will consider that on my right now unused Win 7 computer. I have switched to Mac Air OS X laptop and have had no problems so far in this 1st couple of months. time will tell!

Thanks, Swekformz: This works...somewhat... It's not perfect for me. I still get the "unresponsive plugin" nightmare, but not as often as I have been getting. I look at Youtube a lot, so for the past month, it has been horrible. Anyway, thanks again. Even an imperfect fix is much better than no fix at all.

You're both very welcome!

There is another hidden setting that most people forget to tweak - The online Adobe Settings Manager.

You can access the interactive webpage with the settings manager by going to: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html (or simply Google Adobe Flash Settings Manager)

This tool is a flash-based web panel that controls how flash components can interact with your PC.

You can play around with the settings but I'd recommend changing the 'default' values for these 3 tabs:


  • Global Storage Settings: slide this to 10MB and check the following 2 check-boxes "Allow Third-Party Content To Store Data On Your Computer" and "Store common Flash components to reduce download times".
  • Global Security Settings: select the "Always deny" radio button
  • Peer-Assisted Networking Panel: check the "Disable P2P uplink for all" button


Tweaking these settings should markedly improve Firefox' performance on flash based websites.

In any case, the last option will prevent Flash from transmitting and sharing any network information AND will also prevent Adobe Flash from sharing your bandwidth with websites - this should result in a considerable performance boost for Adobe Flash!

Thanks again, Sweckform 2: I'll try your new idea as well...because...as I logged into Firefox this morning, Flash started it's crappy behavior again. "Unresponsive plugin...Flash has crashed...send a crash report (joke)...etc" And to add insult to injury, Adobe had the nerve to forward an "update" message to me. REALLY???!!! Well, there will be NO further updates until I get a handle on this nightmare once and for all. Well, back to the salt mines. Thanks again.
