Hello, It's been about (8) months now and I have no clue what Firefox is doing but things need to be fixed.

Let's start off with the Adobe Flash Player issues with Firefox. If you go to a Audio/Video site and you're chatting with some friends then all of a sudden your audio starts to slowly cut out and gone. To fix you reconnect to the room or close their camera window and re establish a connection. Google Chrome - Doesn't have this issue, Microsoft Edge - Flawless again doesn't have this issue. Not only that there are some other issues like using online audio recorder sites not working with flash either.

Firefox just fix this (8) months is a long time. You want donations but your not keeping up to my expectations but you in my opinion have a better browser but with these issues it just sucks when you have to switch to another for the use of these things.

Now let's talk about privacy.

If you go to your Firefox menu, Options, Privacy and place that check mark in Clear history when Firefox closes and then from there go into settings and check everything under: History / Data.

Now let's say this works... I browse a few sites, close Firefox and reopen Firefox and what do you know. You get that stupid want to restore your last session? REALLY! - How could Firefox know my last session if the damn thing was supposed to be cleared upon exit. Let's not STOP there. It will eventually clear out and that restore your last session will not appear but yet sites you last visited are still there. WHAT? I thought it was supposed to Clear history upon exit?

So to the Firefox team / staff / developers, etc! - Fix it. - The Adobe Flash Player issue has been going on for over 8 months. - The privacy seem to break since Firefox 42. And we are now at 43.0.4. So whatever you changed or did since you got it all f'ed up.

Thanks for taking the time to listen to my RANT, but reading across the on certain sites / forums I know I'm not the only one having issues with Firefox with these problems mentioned above. So yes Firefox this makes me sad. That's for my feedback.

Do you have NVidia’s network access manager or Forceware Network Manager software installed? Disable / remove it.

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drivers

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin See also:

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

Hello, Thanks for that bit of information. I have tried all of those steps and I wish I could say I received better results. However nothing changed. The issues are still there.

I just stopped using Firefox and moved on to Google Chrome. I'm just one of those people who hate jumping from one browser to another.

If Firefox fixes their mess great! If not well they lost me as someone who really supports them.

If I am correct I have reported this to Firefox 8 months ago and well it's up to them to fix it. I can't force them to do anything.

Thanks for trying to help me resolve the issue.
