I recently installed Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX--11.4.402.265 and when I open My Mozilla Firefox browser I keep getting this message flashing on my screen: 'Adobe Flash Player 11.4 r402 has stopped working" and then "Windows is checking for a solution"

This flashes a few times then usually stops but not always.

It happens every time I try to open a new page.

I fixed this problem by uninstalling Adobe Flash Player 11 and installing Adobe Flash Player 10.3. However, now my IE browser wants me to install Adobe Flash Player 11 again. Although I don't use my IE browser frequently, I DO have to use it sometimes. Will there be an update to Firefox 15.0 to correct this issue?

Chosen solution

First, the IE Flash is totally different than the flash used in Firefox. You can update one without affecting the other.

Now, there is an issue right on with Flash 11.3 and 11.4 in Firefox. Downgrading to 10.3 is an acceptable solution for now. Adobe is releasing updates (slowly) that fix the various issues, but it will be a matter of time before they are all fixed.
