Dear Mozilla, after years of problem wit it, can you please do something about Flash player?!

Posted

I love Mozilla Firefox, I don't want to move to Chrome, but there is a point where I can't keep wasting my time to fix stupid problems with flash player when it works perfectly on the other browsers... Tried everything that was recommended at least 10 times, still the plug-in keeps crashing...

Your System Details shows; you have no flash player. Flash Player Version 17.0.0.188
https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
Note: There is one program for Windows IE, and another for others (FF).

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

If you are still having problems, come back to this post and tell us.

The plugin based Flash player from Adobe has been not so great since Aobe came out with version 11.3 on Windows so Mozilla has been working on making Firefox work with html5 and this areweflashyet.com

Chrome comes with and uses a Pepper flash player by default and IE uses a Active X version of Flash from Adobe so they are not the same.

A person can't compare Flash performance or problems across different brands of web browsers. Adobe supplies different versions of Flash for the major web browsers - IE gets (ActiveX), Chrome has (Pepper), and Firefox uses (Plugin).
