The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed again and again and again

Posted

I know and I understand that Adobe Flash is an addin from another company, but it's pretty annoying that ultimately always fail. I've had to uninstall and reinstall the browser to return to normal operation. But after a few days back I can not see the videos from Youtube, fail certain pages, etc, etc. This never happened a few years earlier. I do not know if the browser fails or if failure of the latest versions of Flash but the truth is that I as a user I feel quite mortified. I am a staunch fan of this browser. I use it for many years and I usually am faithful to my products. Please explain to me what happens! of who is to blame! There is a solution?

 thanks

Recent crashes of certain multimedia contents (this includes Youtube videos, certain flash games and other applications) in conjunction with Firefox 14 are most probably caused by a recent Flash 11.3 update and/or a malfunctioning Real Player browser plugin.
