Hi Team,

As a concern,we want to enquire that since our company has its own product which uses Flash technology but its been known now that firefox will not suppport adobe flash player after 2020. So if we save and continue to use an oder version of firefox(with autoupdate off),will it allow to continue usage of Adobe Flash Player after 2020? Please confirm the same or any other workaround so that adobe flash player can be used within firefox after 2020 as well.

Thanks

I'm running Manjaro linux XFCE 64bit. I have the latest version of Firefox installed from the Manjaro repositories (69.0.3-1). The flashplugin is also installed from the Manjaro repositories and is the latest version (32.0.0.270-1). In my plugin settings, Flash is set to ask to activate, and I've even tried turning off the "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" setting. Most websites that need Flash don't recognize that it is installed at all.

When I use Adobe's tools to check if Flash is installed, (https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html) this page doesn't show the ask to activate plugin in the URL bar until after I click on "Check Now" so their tool shows that I do not have Flash installed or enabled. If I click allow Flash on this page and then refresh the page, it seems like Flash gets disabled for that website again, and clicking "Check Now" once again shows that Flash is not installed or enabled.

Another page to check if it is installed is (https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/) which I found from downloading the flash plugin directly from Adobe in a readme.txt file. This page shows the Ask to activate directly on the Flash content, and when I click Allow, it recognizes that I have version 32.0.0.270 installed.

Most websites with Flash content that I want to use just don't show the Ask to activate prompt and show that I need to install Flash with the link to download from Adobe. I've tried uninstalling Flash and reinstalling, then rebooting my computer but that didn't help. This seems to be a reoccuring problem for me on linux, not just with Manjaro, but also Ubuntu, and even with other web browsers based on Chromium, like Brave browser. Does anyone know what causes this or how I can get Flash working on some pages?

The reason that I am sending you the info and posting the question, is because browsing has become tiresome for me, since I have to put up with the delays in responding, the crashes, the immense consumption of memory and so forth. I also tried a clean install and again the same things happened. I keep getting the black screens, the not responding etc..

Thank you in advance

Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

Hello. I have searched and tried to solve this for days now and I simply can't figure it out.

Firefox version: Mozilla Firefox 31.5.3 ESR Firefox plays a presentation with MP4 video.

At first we got this error generally when we tried to play MP4: Video Format or MIME Type is not supported Adding: "AddType video/mp4 .mp4" to the .htaccess file on the server solved that. After this we have been able to play mp4 inside Firefox without any issues. We can even start Firefox from within a script as long as we run this script from the command line or Desktop menu as the standard user.

However running the exact same script using crontab for the standard user, again results in the "Video Format or MIME Type is not supported" error. Export display is set and Firefox does open as it should. Youtube videos and everything else in the presentation is working. We simply just can't play MP4 video content. Just as if the .htaccess information is ignored or what ever else could be the cause.

Anyone who can explain what the differences between opening Firefox from users crontab and users Terminal console could be in terms of playing MP4 video?

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Kind Regards, Kevin

Hi. I have downloaded and installed the latest Adobe flashplayer and told "Manage Plug-ins" to allow it to run and to "remember this decision," but https://www.nytimes.com/crosswords/game/kenken still won't load.

I just closed the browser and re-opened it, and checked the "Manage PLug-ins" button, and once again it has not saved the instruction to allow Adobe to run on the site.

The site still works fine with Safari.

This is really annoying. What am I missing?

Thanks!

I have version Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.233 any version newer then this causes Firefox to crash close and reopen to same page and I have to open in safe mode and close Firefox and reopen again and then un-install Flash and then install the version listed here.

When will I be able to use a newer version of Adobe Flash Player on Firefox 3.6.13?

The reason I can't update my Firefox is because I can no longer force Firefox to save my username/passwords on my Banks website and other sites that use the feature to turn Off saving password but in this version I can bypass that command in one of the component files.

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.

I went to some website that asked me to run Adobe Flash Player and now ever since I did the videos on youtube wont start playing until I click on them to. I want to set them so they start playing on their own again.

I tried turning on autoplay on youtube, but that didn't help. I tried going to the add-ons and changing to Always Activate, but that didn't work. I even tried Never Activate. I then looked at the Adobe Flash Player settings within the Control Panel, but nothing there helped.

I'm now considering uninstalling the program, but I'm confused, is it Adobe Flash Player that I need to uninstall or Adobe Shockwave Player? And, will this make it so videos don't play at all?

I've been having a lot of trouble with youtube in FF on and off for a while now. I noticed if I run FF in safe mode, it works without any problem, but normally playing a youtube vid (even embedded in another site) can cause my display driver or even my pc to crash. My driver is fully updated, and was reinstalled cleanly. I tried refreshing FF and it didn't help. I uninstalled FF completely, even manually erasing any trace of any file/folder that had firefox or mozilla in it. Reinstalled and still the same problem continues.

Any suggestions?

Adobe Flash & Javascript don't work even though Enabled

Ever since what I think was either a Firefox upgrade (I don't know which one) or installation of Quicktime, my Adobe Flash Plugin is perpetually crashed and I cannot play any Flash content on any website. All that displays in place of the video is a gray screen with the sad-face Lego icon and the message: “The Adobe Flash Plugin has crashed. Please reload the page to try again.” (See attached image.) But it will not resolve when reloaded.

No Flash videos on any sites work. HTML5 videos work on YouTube when tested, but non-HTML5 videos won't work.

Also, my Javascript does not seem to be working since at least some displays requiring javascript don't work. Sometimes the display just doesn't work, and sometimes I get a message that javascript is disabled and must be enabled, but it is already enabled (set to “true” in about:config).

I have spent days scouring every help forum entry I can find on troubleshooting Flash Player and Javascript. Everything on my end seems to be in order and I cannot find or fix either problem. I think it is possible the issue could have its roots in the fact that Javascript seems to not be working which may be preventing Flash Player content from working...??

Also, Flash content does work in I.E. but not in Firefox (I do not have Chrome installed so did not test in Chrome). I have too many window tabs open in Firefox and can't switch to I.E. (nor do I like to use I.E.).

PLEASE HELP as this is crippling for very important work deadlines I have.

This is what else I know and have tried:

I have a Toshiba Satellite C75D-A Laptop; Processor: AMD A6-5200 APU with Radeon HD Graphics; x64; 2.00 Ghz; RAM: 8 MB; OS: 64-bit system; Windows 8.1 (but some auto-check utilities detect it as 8.0 because it was upgraded.); Graphics Card: “Desktop Graphics” System – AMD Radeon HD 8400 (0x9830); Installed Graphics Driver Version: AMD 13.352.1004.1007 (Driver Date: 4/22/2014)

My Device Manager graphics driver updater states: “driver software is up to date.” From the AMD website: the graphics driver auto-detect utility recommended the AMD Catalyst Driver (amd-catalyst-omega-14.12-without-dotnet45-win8.1-64bit.exe) I tried installing this driver, but it won't install. After trying to install, I got a message stating: “We are unable to find a driver for your system.” But Device Manager states I have a current driver, and my graphics card & driver seem to be working fine, so I do not believe this is part of the issue.

I am using Latest Firefox version 35.0.1; and Using Latest Flash Player: 32-bit NPAPI Plug-in Version: 16.0.0.296; designated: “always activate” (Downloaded new update several times, including fresh install after uninstall; system & web address icons indicate Flash is enabled).

I turned off hardware acceleration in FF Tools>Options>Advanced>General

I disabled WebGL as explained here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

I am using Ad-Block Plus which has never affected things in the past. I have not tried starting FF in Safe Mode because I believe I will lose all open tabs and not be able to recover them (I may have over 200 open). But disabling add-ons has no effect (I disabled all except for Sessions Manager in case of a crash). (My No-Script has been disabled for at least six months.)

I have Windows Media Player and Quicktime installed.

Quicktime is most recent upgrade (7.7.6) so should not be a problem according to: “QuickTime plugin takes over Flash” at: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Disabling_Protected_Mode_in_Flash_11.3 (note underscores in place of spaces in string; underscores not insertable here)

Disabling Quicktime had no effect in the prior version of FF (ver. 35.0), but in latest FF ver. 35.0.1, Flash videos only display a plain (blank) gray screen instead of the sad-faced icon and crash message.

(I tried to uninstall Quicktime altogether, but was not able to due to Error codes 2502 & 2503. I tried troubleshooting that as well with no luck using methods successful for other programs, including here: http://www.fixkb.com/2014/01/error-2503-and-2502-when-uninstalling-on-windows-8.html; & here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-winapps/re-internal-error-codes-2502-and-2503-for/ba5f2145-aa6e-4cc0-81a7-e4346f43b698.)

Disabling my FF theme and using the default brought back the sad-faced icon and crash message in the place of videos on some YouTube pages, but not other YouTube pages (where video was still blank gray screen). It also enabled a still Flash image (an ad) to display on a different website page that previously had a Flash Plugin crash message. I have been using this same theme for a couple of years without previous issue. While turning it off did generate an effect on some still imagery, it didn't fix the video problem.

I tried Disabling Protected Mode in Flash 11.3 as explained here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Disabling_Protected_Mode_in_Flash_11.3 (note underscores in place of spaces in string; underscores not insertable here). It did not solve the issue.

I also deleted all storage & data in Flash Player as advised. This had no effect either.

I've tried all solutions I've been able to find and am at a loss for what to try next. Please help and advise ASAP. Thank you!!
