Mozilla Firefox 3.6.6 won't play Adobe Flash 10.1 media, video. Given this has been a continual problem (for years) between Mozilla and Adobe, what is the current solution for users to enable Flash 10.1 to operate within Firefox (it works well in IE and

Posted

Adobe Flash 10.1 won't load media when using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.6. There are no errors. Both IE and Opera operate well with Flash 10.1. I contacted Mozilla chat support, but to no avail (person disconnected session after I mentioned that Flash 10.1 works well with my other browsers). Also, I've noticed Mozilla and Adobe have had similar problems after each upgrade of either Firefox or Flash (the internet has a long track record of user complaints going back to 2007 and later).

The key point is Mozilla bears the effects of the problems because users transition to other browsers (e.g., I now have configured my Opera browser as my primary browser, IE is second, and Firefox is on hold until Mozilla resolves Flash 10.1 compatibility issues).


This happened

Every time Firefox opened

In past two weeks, when Firefox no longer recognized an older version of Adobe Flash and requested I upgrade to 10.1.

User Agent

Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en) Presto/2.6.30 Version/10.60

Additional System Details

Application

  • User Agent: Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en) Presto/2.6.30 Version/10.60

More Information

There are no errors. Adobe Flash 10.1 simply won't load media when using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.6. Flash 10.1 works well in IE and Opera (my other browsers), and I didn't need to make any adjustments with them (simple plug-and-play).
