Flash plugin detected but not working (Firefox 22 on Linux)

Hi all,

I can't get the flash plugin to work. It's installed, detected in about:plugins, but when I visit adobes's test page at http://www.adobe.com/fr/shockwave/welcome/ , I just get the usual " you need a plugin to view this content" thing.

This happenned since I migrated from Mageia 1 to Mageia 2, and still doesn't work on Mageia 3, which uses Firefox 17 ESR. I then downloaded and installed Firefox 22 directly from Mozilla, still with no luck. I've reset my profile, tried to use an empty profile, tried disabling all add-ons, still no luck.

about:plugins displays this:

   File : libflashplayer.so
   Path : /opt/firefox/browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so
   Version : 11,2,202,297
   State : Enabled
   Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

This is the most up-to-date flash version available from Adobe.

Another thing is that this machine is a 32 bits install, on an Athlon XP 3000+ with a Radeon X1650 graphics card. Surprisingly, on another machine, using the same distro but with a 64 bits install, Flash works well.

I'm out of ideas now, so any hint would be welcome. Thank you.

I am not a computer geek and I think I want a simple thing: when I start Mozilla Firefox I want zoom level to be set automatically at 150%. In another words I want Mozilla Firefox to remember that my preference is 150% zoom level so I do not have to retune it each time I start Mozilla Firefox or open new tab. Is it possible?

How do I totally remove Shockwave Flash 15.0.0152. Using Ubuntu 12.04, FF 32.0.3. It seems that I have Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.406 installed also...How ???. When I disable SWF 15.xxx, it disables SWF 11.xxx also.

This was happening before I installed Chrome browser. Chrome is the only way I can use my computer without throwing thing about the room.

When I enable SWF 11.xxx, and leave SWF 15.xxx disabled, SWF turns on SWF 15.xxx. Seems these two versions are screwing up everything on my computer. Can't watch videos, FF goes gray screen and stuck, for 30 seconds, then recovers, then goes gray screen, then a message comes up "bad script -- Stop?", etc.,etc.

Lately when I am using T-bird email the screen goes gray and stops working.

Please help

Thanks SB

I know Firefox 20 can open all downloads in a tab with “about:downloads” via the address bar. Also it’s known when clicking on “Show all downloads” in downloads pop-up, the downloads portion of library is shown. Is there any way to open that “about:downloads” tab with “Show all downloads” link? I’ve seen this behavior in Private Window, but I want it for non-private too.

In short, I want to be able to bypass certificate warnings.

Yes, I've seen this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1169632 "When there is HSTS(HTTPS Strict Transport Security) set on the server, you cannot add a exception"

In less short, my case (because one needs to always justify one's methods), I set up a subdomain on a separate IP/host and I'm trying to test some project for which I use a webpage as a small visible part. However, the domain uses HSTS (HSTS == very nice).

However, I'm just casually testing something using a subdomain (or even a fake domain, or a real domain pointing to a new server being prepared, maybe using /etc/hosts) pointing to an external or internal IP on some old computer on my LAN or even on my own computer. And that's not possible anymore.

People should always have the option to bypass a warning, and I'm all for the warnings. If anything, there shouldn't have been a box with the option "always remember" ticked by default. There are other cases where this can be useful, some we don't even know yet.

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Hi On at least 6 occasions when I have used Firefox for downloading, it fails to download files correctly, what happens after about 3 minutes is an error message saying Failed I generally enjoy using Firefox but it cannot be viewed reliable. Opera on the other hand does the same file download perfectly. The file was from Sourceforge a iso image file of 667Mb Firefox managed just 42.2Mb before failing. Some more work is needed to make downloads comparable in reliability to Opera

My operating system is linux Mint 17.1 xfce
