Running latest version of Mozilla. After updating Flash to latest version it will not work. Pages indicate I need newer version. Any ideas?
Flash version. 11.3.300.257 Mozilla version 13.0 Windows 7 Flash works on Chrome and IE.
It seems the problem has now resolved itself. I guess!!!! I was answering an e-mail from Yahoo. The yellow bar at the top appeared informing me a plugin was required to display all of the information on the page. I clicked on it showed I needed a Flash plugin version ending with 235 and NOT 257 which is what has been downloading. I installed this version and everything is now working correctly. Evidently version 257 has been causing the problem and NOT Firefox. No more Chrome for the time being. HALLELUIAH!!!! LMAORead this answer in context 👍 1

It didn't help. I uninstalled Flash. I installed the Other (32 bit) version, when opening Firefox to the pages affected there was no change, still not working. Uninstalled Flash again. Installed the Windows (64 bit) version. Now I get the message to get the latest version of Flash. When checking the programs from the Control Panel it shows only one version of Flash. I thought at one time if you could install both versions. I vaguely remember seeing them with a 64 and a 32 included as part of the name. Adobe doesn't allow both versions to reside on the system?
I have a Dell Netbook using Windows 7 Starter. It has Flash 10 and it shows 2 versions on the Control Panel. One named Active X, the other Plugin. I don't know if this is a clue to the problem, but it appears that on Version 10 both 32 bit and 64 bit were allowed to coexist.
Basically there are 4 versions of the Flash Plugin:
ActiveX (which has a 32 bit and 64 bit variant): This is for Internet Explorer only, and doesn't work on any other browser.
For all other browsers (Just labeled "Plugin" and also has a 32 and 64bit variant): This is for all other browsers, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc. Chrome has their own version of Flash bundled into the browser, so it does not use these plugins.

Quick and dirty band aid solution for the Flash Player 11.3.300.257 issue with Firefox 13 - 64bit on Windows 7.
Instruction: Go to uninstall flash player for windows (link below)
Download the uninstaller and run.
Go to archived the flash player versions (link below - downloads near bottom of page)
under the title Release and Content Debugger archives you should see Flash Player 184.108.40.206 - 159 MB; released 4/13/2012
download this version, unzip it, and in the unziped folder of this version find: flashplayer11_2r202_233_winax_64bit (File Type) Windows Installer
click it to run making sure the browser is closed. Once complete open Firefox and go straight to a Youtube video page.
At first the video will crash but the Browser's Plugin Finder Service will pop up asking for the Adobe Flash Player 220.127.116.11 plugin - install this.
Whist it's installing an Adobe window will open too and ask how you wish to be notified for future updates. Make sure to select the second option which is notify me first before updating
do not select "update automatically" otherwise you may end up updating to 11.3.300.257 ie, back to square one. close firefix [whoops meant firefox] ;)~ then reopen.
Your good to go running Flash Player 18.104.22.168 until the folks in Mozilla and Adobe resolve this issue, just remember to subscribe to posting regarding this for notification of it's solution.

Yes jayjayme, I forgot to say THANKS too! I appreciate all of your work on this problem. Although I may have to come back for the instructions. I forgot to turn off the automatic update. OOOOOOPPPPPPPPSSSSSS! LOL
Thanks again jayjayme. If the automatic update seems to mess things up again I'll know where to go for the fix. THANKS!!!
Sadly, this did not solve my problem - have posts in the Adobe forums as well...we shall see...
Real player not a factor for me...
- At first, follow the instructions at below link
- Try to disable hardware acceleration.
Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
These solve my video and playing game problems and now I am the happiest man
- protectedmode=0 solved my frozen problem also
