I frequent motorcycle forums , and when people posts video's (usually Instagram) all it shows is a white square with what looks like a Lego toy piece in the middle , i have Adobe Flash installed (latest version) and the video's are embedded into the webpage , even if i click or right click on the video , it does not give me any options to view it , or mention anything about a video , like its not recognized

Before i was able to just go to the page and the video would show up , now all it does is the box and i can't view anything , how do i get the video's to play ?? , and what changed to make them not play , it has been doing this for a bit , and its getting old having to go to Google Chrome or IE11 just to watch a video , i should be able to view them in Firefox as well

Below is a link to one of the forums i view , and this link is to the page that contains a video that will not play , it is the second post http://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/impressive-win-by-Colton-Haaker,1293764


So why can't i view this video ??? , and how is it fixed ???

I went to check my plugins and saw that I needed to update my flash player from 18 but when I went to install the new version and checked to make sure it installed correctly by checking my plugins again it said I needed to update. I went to my plugins section of firefox and noticed that it had installed the latest version but hadn't deleted the old version.

I then downloaded the flash player uninstaller and used it. I restarted my computer to make sure and noticed that it hadn't worked.

Also to note that it's just in firefox plugin. My computer has the updated version.

So anyone know how to uninstall the plugin?

I was able to download video by going to options/page info/media in version 41, but video no longer appears in the list. This is the case for pages where I was able to download video just 2 weeks ago. I have tried updating my addons, but that made no difference. I have seen that other people have noted this problem.

Recently pages using Adobe Flash don't load. I get a message saying "this page requires Adobe Flash" and another asking "Do you want to activate Adobe Flash" Each time I have to choose Activate but it doesn't ask if I want to enable it always, it just does it the once and next time I load the page I have to do it again. Another issue that seems to be related is that I get a message saying "You must download Adobe Flash or enable it in your browser" on some pages that I have viewed before. One I tried tonight is : http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20141103-hermit-crab but got the "You must download Adobe Flash or enable it in your browser" message. What's up? I read in the mozilla support chat that I must enable Flash but no clue where or how to do it. Thanks in advance.

Hello

I am trying to set up a discussion in Canvas. When I click on Record/Upload Media, a window pops up with Adobe Flash Player Setting asking me to click on Allow, nothing works on the window...However when I do the same on Safari and Chrome, no problem it works... I am also having mega problems on another online platform "Portails" when I also use Firefox (I suspect this is a Flash player problem...) and same thing, when I use Chrome everything works...I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and downloaded the latest version of Adobe flash player..it did not help...I have a Mac Pro... thanks...

I keep Firefox open at almost all times and when I load a new page and try and play a video, whether on youtube, Facebook, or other source, it won't play. It just stays at the loading circle the whole time. The only time it works is when I completely exit out of Firefox and re-start it. This is quite frustrating for me because I often have multiple tabs open with other things I am working on that I don't want to close. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you

Below, is a screen shot of my Computer's Properties. I realize my PC is old. I'll admit, that I should know more about this stuff than I do, but I am so frustrated, I'm ready to simply uninstall Firefox, and go back to Chrome. Basically all I do online, is read News, Sports, and play a few games. I can't help but feel, that I have conflicting Add-ons which are causing me all these issues, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out the right combination of them to get my Browser to run smoothly.

Constantly the Debugging Script box pops up, or Shockwave crashes, or the page I'm on simply starts hanging and freezing. I shouldn't need to be clearing my History/Cache daily, but I do, and even this is only a temporary fix. After a half an hour, I'm right back to all the issues again. Thanks in Advance!

I'd like to try to switch back from Chrome to Firefox, but there is an issue that makes it impossible. When I play any video with Firefox it works very slow and quality worse than in Chrome. For example, when I expand the video to fullscreen it switches very slow and the only way to exit fullscreen mode is to press Esc. But in Chrome all works fine. I've recorded a video with a demonstration of it. Please, check this out (https://goo.gl/eTtOku). My system is Xubuntu 14.04, video Radeon HD 7640G with fglrx drivers. I do not use flash and hardware acceleration is enabled.

Hi,

Both flash videos and Html5 videos don't work. Html5 freeze on the first frame while flash videos crash the flash player. If i restart my computer i can watch videos for a short time. I have tried a bunch of fixes but nothing has worked.

I originally thought this was a flash problem but i don't if it is. My post on Flash support: https://forums.adobe.com/message/8723717#8723717

I am also going to put a post up on windows support in case this stems from a deeper problem. If you have any advice on isolating where this problem is occurring that would be great, just so I can ask the right people.

I'm getting really desperate for help

Thanks in advance, Michael

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?
