    1. - Open "Activity Monitor" app.
    2. - Find "Firefox Plugin Process", and perhaps while you're there "Flash Player (Safari internet plug-in)" too.
    3. - Press "Quit" then "Force Quit" both, one after the other.
    4. - Refresh page with Flash content on, and it should start the process again inside the browser.

    NB: this has worked for me in the past, but sometimes only a restart will do it. (So try but don't say I didn't mention it may not work ;-)

    This isn't a solution that I want to add to the article. The default firefox settings along with an updated Flash plugin work great.
