When I try to watch Flash videos from this site: http://www.railcam.uk/site/watchbasic.php the Flash plugin crashes after a very short time. I have uninstalled Flash, then reinstalled it. I have uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it. I have disabled hardware acceleration in Flash. The Flash plugin works properly with Microsoft Edge browser. Flash works properly with downloaded flv videos. Any suggestions as to what to try next. I would like to continue using Firefox as my browser. Cheers Ralph

You need to be a member to access the cameras.

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

Thank you for your reply to my question. My graphics drivers are up-to-date. I have reported the crash, but found no solution on the Flash site. The Flash player Test page suggests that I have the right version of Flash to function with Firefox: both of these have recently been uninstalled then reinstalled. The YouTube Test Page does not seem to be relevant to my particular problem. Despite all this, the Flash plug-in crashes when I attempt to view Flash videos on http://www.railcam.uk/site/watchbasic.php. It is fairly easy to join the site and free, if you think the problem is perculiar to the site, however ... There is no problem when using Microsoft Edge on this PC, nor is there a problem when viewing the same videos on a different PC using Firefox. What next, please? Cheers Ralph

This is not a cure, but should let the web page load without crashing.
