Flash in the latest nightly build is not working and causing crashes. Help?

Posted

I'm using an Asus Transformer tf101. I updated Nightly today and now flash does not work in the program. Once I attempt to play any flash video, the program crashes and it crashes one or two more times after that before I can use it again. I disabled all my plugins and cold booted but to no avail. Another issue I am having is that it sometimes freezes on the home screen on startup. This instance usually happens after I try to type an address or use a bookmark. The only way I found around it was to tap one of the three top site icons first. Does anyone have a solution to this?

edit: I have reverted back to the previous build for now. It isn't as nice as the latest version's style but it plays flash video better than the other mobile browsers out there. Controls like pausing, skipping ahead or putting video to full screen are still hit or miss though.

It is a known issue with the current Nightly builds. We hope to have it sorted out early next week. I don't believe the Aurora builds are affected by this issue. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/aurora/
