Flash not working properly after update to Firefox 3.6.7

Posted

Ever since I updated to Firefox 3.6.7, Flash is not working properly. I updated my Flash, but that did not fix the problem. Has anyone else run into this since updating Firefox?

Guys one reason why flash might not be working is that this new flash update has new security settings and won't work with the real player recording plugin.

To fix this: 1 - launch real player and select preferences on the top left drop down list. 2 - select download and recording on left hand panel. 3 - unpick the enable web download and recording for these installed browsers. 4 - restart Firefox and flash should work. REMEMBER THIS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE REAL PLAYER INSTALLED.

Firefox used to be excellent, over the past year it has become the biggest pile of crap ever imagined. The plug in container....rubbish... It crashes all the time. It's just shit. Firefox used to be the best and now it is basically a massive pile of crap, you should sack all your programmers. You have failed immensely. FELL BAD, VERY BAD. IDIOTS. Everyone I know has uninstalled your pathetic browser. Just don't bother if you can't compete anymore. The best solution now it to use another browser. That is what advice I will give to anyone from now on (being everyone that uses firfox because they all say the same thing) Losers.
