Adobe flash player crash

Posted

I have Windows 7 and my adobe flash player keeps crashing. I keep getting a prompt saying "Shockwave Flash Player may be busy or not responding" and giving me the options to "continue" or "stop plug-in". This makes it impossible to watch/listen to media online. Not only this, but it makes Firefox hang and/or crash. It also makes my iTunes completely non-functional. It also affects me searching for some of my files and folders on my C drive. All of this started after the last Firefox update. How do I fix this?

Question owner

I've tried doing this several times along with uninstalling and reinstalling Flash Player over a dozen times. I even tried reinstalling Firefox. Now its getting worse and my laptop will only operate in one of the "Safe Mode" settings. If I start Windows normally, everything freezes and crashes.

I have this issue/problem me tooo.

And i have the latest adobe flash player version and the latest mozilla firefox 26.0.

BUT STILL CRASHING WHY DON'T FIND ANY SOLUTION TO MAKE IT MORE STABLE THIS FROM A VERY OLD VERSIONS OF FIREFOX?

WHY CHROME AND OTHER BROWSERS DOESN'T CRASH WITH ADOBE?

MAYBE BECAUSE IT USE AN INTERNAL PLUGIN FOR FLASH AND NOT THIS THE ADOBE WAS RELEASED.

PLEASE MAKE THE ADOBE FLASH PLAYER STABLE.

You can check for problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions and try this:

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
