You are using a Shockwave Flash 11.3 r300 beta version.

Try to uninstall that Flash version and install the regular Flash 11.2 version instead.

You can find the latest Flash player for Firefox on this page.

For Firefox on 64 bit Windows, you need the 32 bit Flash version version because Firefox is a 32 bit application.

Hi corel

I have deleted the flash player 11.3 r300 beta version and replaced with regular 11.2

but the problem is present

I don't think that the problem is flash player because I use a same version with all browsers Chrome, Opera, Explorer and Firefox.

There are no problem at any of them except Firefox why?!!!

Did you check that your security software (anti-virus, firewall) isn't blocking the plugin-container process?
