I have Firefox 73.0.1 ((64 bit) and am running the latest version of FLASH as an add-on.

Lately, when using FLASH within FF, sometimes the screen goes white, sometimes it goes black. I cannot seem to figure out what to do and how to restart FLASH or get back to where I was. Also, I cannot figure out how to get the DISPLAY settings for FLASH This has recently started about 2 weeks ago. I have no other problems with FF

Currently having really bad screen tearing only in Firefox. It happens on every video I watch in the browser. I have updated all drivers including my GPU's. Both my monitors have gsync. I've adjusted the Vsync settings in the nvidia control panel to see if that would correct the issue but it did not. I've also disabled and enabled hardware acceleration. I've went into about:config and adjusted the layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true. I've also ran firefox in safemode and still saw the problem persist. I don't have this problem in Chrome, edge, or any other application.

Here are the system specs.

OS: Windows 10 64bit CPU:AMD Ryzen 3600 RAM 16GB DDR4 3600MHz GPU: GTX 1080ti Mobo: B450

How do you get Firefox set permanently to play Flash Player videos?

I was suddenly getting prompts to update Flash Player. This hadn't happened in months, so I hadn't updated Flash Player in a good while. The first time, I ignored the warning prompt and activated Flash anyway and played the video. This was from tcm.com (Turner Classic Movies). The second time, I decided I'd better update Flash Player, and did so. But now the video wouldn't play at all. There was a locked box icon. I searched on various fixes, looked at a few Mozilla support pages, did a plug-in change starting from the sandwich icon at upper right, same thing. Found another fix idea. Went into the C drive, navigated eventually in Windows to the Macromed and Flash folders, and deleted NPSWF32_9_0_0_169.dll. The red locked box went away. A video played. Next time out, though, back to nothing. In IE, the link will play.

I have been using a banking website for credit card management for years. Today, after the Firefox update, the website is having issues. A pop-up page is not responding. The popup is allowed and does open but a Flash Player application is not loading properly and the popup window goes blank. At that point the browser itself becomes completely frozen. I have refreshed Firefox, have stopped all security on the computer and nothing seems to correct the problem. I have checked the Flash Player application and its seems to be installed and working properly. I have been able to access the page from three other browsers with no problem. Not sure what the issue may be but I will say that with this most recent Firefox update I have experienced more issues with page loadings, security snags and just plain errors than I have in quite some time.

Sometime in the past 3 months, when I use Replay Poker's site almost every time, or occasionally when I use Angry Birds Friends on Facebook in Mozilla (both use flash), and leave a poker table or the ABF game, it freezes my Mozilla browser. When using Replay's site this happens 8-10 times out of 10. With ABF, it happens 1 out of every 5-6 times I use it. I am unable to click on or in the browser window, and cannot close the browser with the x at the upper right of the window. The only thing that works at that point is to hold my mouse over my Mozilla icon in the taskbar, and when the small window icons pop up, I can close them using the x on the small icon. What seems to reset the browser is if I have two or more tabs open, and click the upper-right x while mouse hovering over the taskbar icon, getting the "close multiple tabs?" warning. If I click no, then the browser usually seems to reset and start operating normally again. Though, sometimes that still does not allow me to open a new flash window, so I have to completely close Mozilla and restart it again. I have noted a couple other mentions of this problem, but have yet to find a solution that works.

My graphic card drivers are updated. I am using the most updated version of Flash as well.

Hi,

I haven't been able to make Flash Player plugin work on Debian 9 for months. I have tried the two alternative ways described in the Debian wiki to install it, that is to say manually from Flash Player website or thanks to a small .sh script (since there is no more package for flashplayer in Debian 9). See https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer#Debian_9_Stretch

On any of these installs I get flash player crashing as soon as I open a webpage which needs it.

Here's for example a crash report for my problem: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/e87a1b4f-ec3c-49dc-a3a7-7d6f90181105 . Something I don't understand is the field "Signature" with "libasound.so" in. Dunno why it appears here, while my problem is about flash.

If someone can give me some advices on how to solve the problem, I would be very grateful! I already tried to run Firefox in safe mode but it didn't help.

Thank you ! :)

I am using 2 monitors. When i open a stream on my first monitor and fullscreen it and do nothing else, it works. But the moment i click anywhere on my second monitor, the flash full screen closes down and basically showing me the original size within the webpage. Only Firefox has this problem. No other browser has this.

How can i fix this issue?


Additional info: - Windows 10 Home 1607 - Firefox 59.0.2 - (P)NPAPI Plugin version 29.0.0.140

Additional question: If this issue can be resolved, is there a way to keep flash player on my computer but basically force website to use HTML5 player and stop making them say things like "Flash player required" or "Please activate Flash player"?

Thanks in advance

With Flash Player installed for Firefox, you can go to this URL and a container on this page is flash. https://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html

You just see an empty space where the flash content should display, there is no Allow or Flash icons in the URL bar either.

I normally have Adobe Flash in "ask to activate" status. When I want to see if I have the latest ve3rsion, I go to Add-ons Manager and change the setting to "Always activate". Then I go to https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html to check if I have the latest version. Then I go back and reset to ":Ask to activate".

Recently, when I go to that Adobe page and click "Check", I get an error message "Sorry, Flash Player is either not installed or not enabled.." How do I get Flash enabled? I had this happen with Flash 26.0.0.151, and I recently upgraded to 27.0.0.130, and after the update the same error message appears. I am running Firefox 55.0.3 32-bit on Windows 7 Professional.

In the past, when I had "Ask to activate", the Adobe help/check page did not ask me to activate; I had to re-set the activate flag to get the help/check page to work. Is there something that FF has saved somewhere that tells FF never to activate Flash on the Adobe help/check web page?

Thanks.

Using Windows 10, FF 55.0.3, Shockwave plugin 27.0.0.130, Adobe Flashplayer 27 NPAPI.

I am using Adobe Bridge and select to preview a gallery in the browser. Bridge will let FF start and then I get the message (in FF), that there is no flash player installed. I installed many many times, as decribed here in several messages, so often the flash player. I also did the steps described by the college student "ComputerWhiz" (=Wesley Branton) here: https://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/1037689 (renaming pluginreg.dat). I disabled my virus scanner (E-Set). Also I deactivate in FF all the Extensions (to be sure no one causes a conflict), restarted FF but still FF does not recognize the flash player.

Please help me and do not give answers like to find out which flashplayer version I have or where to download flashplayer. Just an answer straight to the point why FF does not recognize the installed Adobe Flashplayer and how to solve it. Thx in advance

Ever since the new update, thanks Mozilla, my problems with Plugin-Container have returned. By now you should take note that this application doesn't work for everyone and that disabling it shouldn't be an Einstein project.

So now Flash Player is back inside the app and the following things happen: -Jittery effect in full screen, lack of V-Sync -Slow loading times -Tabs using flash acting rusty

Deleting the program and using the MOZ_DISABLE_OOP_PLUGINS method doesn't work. And also inside about:config I can't find anything. It hurts just to watch a 20 second video, let alone a 20-40 minute episode.

Edit: Another problem can be included in the list. From time to time I take screenshots from videos at full screen. Previously this would result in a very nice screenshot, no problems. Now I either get a black box or a screenshot as if I didn't enlarge the video to fullscreen.

If I cannot fix this quickly and simply I will have to go to Chrome. Updated flash yesterday, no joy. Suggestions welcome. Thank you

Hi,

bp-d96dc6ad-f9a5-4fac-9482-13df01170828

Happens on YT, FB, Twitter ...

Things I have tried 1. switching from FF 32bit to 64bit 2. disabling HW acceleration 3. updating video drivers 4. safe mode (crash still happens)

Used to work fine and seems to have happened after latest update to FF. though I suspect it is not solely a result of this since I have another PC which is working fine. Since this happens on my work laptop, which is in a semi controlled configuration, the 'well ... check the differences' is not a useful approach since there are way too many of them and I do not have the luxury of going one by one, disabling/unintsalling and seeing if the problem goes away

any help is appreciated.
