So, interesting opportunity to learn something new! ;) What is wrong: buffering. At first I thought I have problems with Flash alone, but this isn't true. Any video [be it on Youtube or Twitch, Flash player or HTML5 player, doesn't matter] randomly will stop. I will see the buffer "icon" and... nothing happens. Ever. I can leave it for as long as I want, it will not budge. On Twitch.tv it's a bit different, it will pause the stream for a solid minute and then "restart" itself.

Cleared cache, session files, updated Flash, used Ccleaner as well. Don't want to go through creating a new profile yet (a bit of a hassle), trying to figure out what might be causing the issue. As I said, it's very random, sometimes happens in short video on Youtube, sometimes I can watch long videos without much problem. And no, my internet is not the issue, double checked on that.

Any ideas?

I am using Firefox 35.0.1 and I have installed Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.296. As soon as Flash starts, Firefox freezes and unfreezes until it can't be used at all. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the flash player and I have also used Firefox's Refresh option. This problem started a couple of days ago & I don't know what else I can do.

I just started getting this black screen instead of some youtube videos whilst they are running , and whilst the sound still goes on perfectly fine. It's rare that it happens and it can change into the normal image, and when i change from full screen view to normal view it can also change back to the normal/real image. Does anyone know what that could be from?

Hello everyone

I think that recently I had to update Flash version and it was all okay even after the update. But yesterday videos on YouTube all of a sudden stopped displaying. Just like that, in the morning they were okay and then around of noon, all of sudden blank. Didn't install anything new or something.. now I only get White screen with no any border, just an empty spot where the video should be. Beside that, any other flash content [i.e. videos on Facebook, vimeo are not displaying as well]. All I get on YouTube is constant "loading" indicator beside the cursor which keeps blipping.

Now the strange thing is first - I have no problems with this on other browsers like i.e. Google Chrome, and second.. IF I uninstall Flash from my PC, I can watch YouTube videos on Mozilla although the max resolution is 720p.. and vimeo/facebook videos will still not work. How da heck is that even possible? O.o

I've tried a lot of different things and nothing helped.. here are some of the them [I hope I won't forget something]

- Uninstalling Mozilla/Flash then installing them again - Uninstalling Flash, then letting Mozilla suggest me to add it - Disabling/Deleting all of my extensions - Turning off that hardware acceleration thingy - Deleting cookies from YouTube then adding them to exceptions - Clearing out whole history/cache or whatever - Right clicking on the "empty space" where video should be.. to see if any options will pop-up [Of course they don't, there is no video to start with] - Scanning for viruses [Nothing]

Can anyone please help me? Any suggestion, what can I do?

For the past few days Firefox browser videos requiring Flash player do not open but give me the 'crash screen'. It works fine with Internet Explorer because it is built in. I have tried all of the recommended fixes from adobe and and firefox.

I have refreshed Firefox
I have enabled in firefox
I have disabled all plugins and extensions then tried enabling Flash Player
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flash player a few times
I have tried adjusting Flash player settings
    " deleting FPs cache, etc.

I have not been able to adjust FPs "hardware acceleration" because it won't open in the support pages.

I have a constant problem with shockwave. I have shockwave flash 15 plug in installed and am using FF 33.0.2 I constantly get a message that shockwave flash maybe busy or may have become unresponsive. It completely freezes up my Firefox. So I cannot watch any videos using Firefox. Everything works perfectly on Chrome. I have tried all the solutions previously suggested such as disabling hardware acceleration but nothing helps. I am ready to absolutely ditch Firefox..... This is so frustrating..

Suddenly I am finding that when playing Youtube videos within Firefox I get a message saying the Adobe flash plugin has crashed.

Everything was fine yesterday although I noticed that it is when I am playing lower resolution and poor quality videos on Youtube.

I have the latest version of Firefox on a Mac Retina and have disabled the hardware acceleration but still the problem occurs.

I have also rebooted my Mac several times as well as closed and opened Firefox each time I make a change. I have also uninstalled flash and reinstalled but to no avail.

As I said above this appears to crash when playing older lower quality videos. Newer, higher resolution videos seem OK.

I have tried playing the videos causing the issue in Safari and they play fine. It just seems to be Firefox.

Anyone else experienced this and can provide an answer to resolve?

Thanks for your help.

i posted this issue 2 days ago with no resolution si here it is again

using windows 7 - this started because i keep getting adobe crashes in IE and firefox only when playing one particular game - the game loads but as soon as i left click the crash occurs.

i have uninstalled and reinstalled flash, java, the game and updated the graphics driver - i couldn't figure out what type of sound card i have to update those drivers - the info i have on their ID'S are -

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_10280447&REV_1001 HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_10280447

Where can i download an update because when i let windows search for one - it came back as not needing an update

Some suggested a dll file was the culprit but i ran sfc/scannow and there were items that couldn't be repaired - they included in their names:

utc.app.json telemetry.ASM-WindowsDefault.json

these i believe are related to java issues that the uninstall and reinstall of java apparently did not fix so not sure what to do about this

bottom line i don't know the cause but i need to fix this and will appreciate assistance

Hi I am in the same situation as many others I have seen posting here. Shockwave flash is continually crashing to the extent it takes several minutes to get to the add-ons manager and disable shockwave flash. I have reinstalled all adobe plugins, so they are up to date. I am having real problems accessing a lot of web pages/web page content because with shockwave flash enabled firefox is all but frozen and with shockwave flash disabled a lot of web content isn't available.

I have looked at other threads that I found and have attempted all of the suggested solutions and have selected the Troubleshooting Information option below this text box. I have a huge list of crash reports, unfortunately I am not sure how to load them

Any suggestions appreciated

Hi Everyone,

I see that problems with MP4 playback are fairly common but I couldn't find a solution to my problem in any of the several questions and answers I've reviewed.

When I comment out the OGG code at http://www.deiryassin.org/video.html I cannot get the MP4 file to play. The OGG file play back in Firefox is just fine. Someone else who uses the latest version of Safari for the Mac OS was not able to get reliable MP4 playback, either. Per w3schools.com, MP4 is a supported fiie type in both Safari and Firefox.

I don't know how to embed HTML in this question so please see the attached PNG file for the code I used for testing MP4 playback. The MP4 file location is correct and the file is not corrupted, it plays fine when I download it.

When I try to play it in Firefox the browser console/error log says: "Specified 'type' attribute of 'video/mp4' is not supported. Load of media resource /media/deiryassinremembered.mp4 failed." The browser displays: "No video with supported format and MIME type found".

Here are the codecs for the file: Codec: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (avc1) Codec: MPEG AAC Audio (mp4a)

The following lines are in my .htaccess:

AddType video/mp4 mp4 m4v AddType audio/mp4 m4a

I've re-enabled the OGG source for visitors to the site. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

Since the latest update to version 35, many sites that use javascript to manipulate images tend to crash firefox and make either the guilty tab or all of firefox close suddenly. (Firefox on Debian 7 Wheezy Linux, all updates current). I use firefox daily for web development and this regression bug is VERY annoying for my workflow. I understand you cannot take every situation into account. I do not have the time to investigate what has made Firefox less stable. I really hope you can fix this performance problem. If I can do anything concrete to help besides jumping into the code, let me know.

Restart and FF safe mode didn't help. Sometimes it hangs for a minute or so, other times it's a full page lock. This page simply hangs for a few seconds ( http://www.bakersfieldnow.com/ ) which makes you wait longer on pages that are truly locked.

While on facebook, if I watch one or 4(Random number) videos using facebooks own player, not youtube, or scroll down my frontpage wich usually have a large number of videos, firefox connection to the net seem to be lost. When this happends, whatever webpage I try to access in Firefox just gets a "Loading" status in the tabs bar.

Only fix so far is to close and relaunch Firefox.

When doing that, I also find that XMark Sync has lost connection and can't sync up.

While this happends, I have tried IE, Chrome and several chat softwares, like Skype, and these function as supposed to. So the issue is somewhere in Firefox.

The reason I point towards Facebook videos(html5?) doing something to Firefox, is that so far this has only happened while on Facebook, and while watching, stopping, switching to HD, skipping forward/back or scrolling past videos on the frontpage(These autostart when they are "front").

This happends at random, but alot, so much I have pretty much stopped scrolling the front page or looked at videos posted on facebook.


I am stumped.
