Hi,

I have a problem since a few days, I can't use Flash on any website, I keep getting the message "this content needs flash" or stuff like that.

I did uninstall and reinstall Flash from Adobe website for Firefox. I did check last updates for Flash AND Firefox. I did check settings to make sure Flash was activated : it is.

I did change some settings in about:config a long time ago but hadn't any troubles, could it be that ? What should I do ?

Thanks.

I like to watch videos using Firefox. However, since the upgrade to Firefox 46, I haven't been able to see any videos at the site https://twit.tv, instead, I get to see a black screen where the video would normally be and the message "Error loading Skin: Error loading file". This is the only site that I have this problem on, and I can also see videos at this site using Chromium and using the download options on the site to paste the link into VLC player and watching the video(s) that way. I'd really like to watch videos by using Firefox instead, could you please tell me what can be done to remedy this situation?

I downloaded Adobe's uninstall (for Mac, OSX 10.4ff) and ran it to get rid of old Adobe Flash shards, being very careful to follow the instructions Adobe provided via their website. The last thing they ask you to do is to "Verify that uninstallation is complete" by restarting your computer and then open your browser and check the status of Flash Player. BUT there seems not to be a way to check the status of Adobe Flash Player on current versions of Mozilla-produced browsers. How do I check that the old version of "Flash Player" is really gone?

Firefox 41.0.2, on Mac OS X 10.8.5

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!

Having issues with FireFox crashing. Still crashes in SafeMode. Everything is up-to-date. I also did a FF reset with no luck.

I tried uninstalling Flash with the uninstall tool, then reinstalling it but still no luck.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am a FF I am a donor if that helps :D

Thanks!

So can this issue be fixed ??

crashes Submitted ....all occuring one after the other. FF is very slow after refreshing and all add-on's and extra's are off. No malware detect etc. Notebook is ACER ES1-731 (yes, I know it's a slow one) but.......What's going on here ? I notice in the browser troubleshooting record "important modified preferences" that java script is still "true"....why is this so when I've changed on the addon manager to "ask to activate" ? ....Is there a sneak file always putting it on default "true"..it seems so.

This just started yesterday. I have flash player plugin version 20.0.0.306 installed. When I set it to "Never Activate" in Tool\addons my homepage loads fine when I open Firefox. When i have it set to "Ask to activate" or "Always activate" my homepage will not load and i get a blank New Page. I reloaded firefox from scratch and reinstalled the flash player from the adobe update website. Kinda weird but I am wondering if this has been addressed or if anyone else it seeing this. i am running 64 bit version of FF on Windows 7 Pro. FF version is 44.0. Thank you !

i have firefox latest update, adobe shockwave latest, I've checked everything. I have a 64-bit windows 7 pro OS on a laptop. Comedy central videos just went to audio only last week. they have no contact I can get a response from. they always just tell me to switch the browser anyway. Does this problem originate in frefox? I have disabled the plugin adblocker plus so it can't be that. I can delete it entirely if you think it's doing something.
