Just updated to FF 15 and the Flash Player crashes any time I load a page with a Flash object. I'm running Flash 11.4 r402 on Windows 7 32bit. I tried safe mode and that did nothing to solve the problem. All help appreciated.

I am getting the message to restart firefox under Tools, Addons. With that all the extensions below display that they're going to be uninstalled when firefox will be restarted. Though they never get so.

I tried installing flashgot meanwhile it won't get installed, it just magically disappears after i restart Firefox.

Xmarks won't get enabled. Free Download Manager's addon won't disable.

I double checked if firefox was closing properly, it does closes properly. I tried Safe mode, all options ticked. Deleted my profile for the sake to bring back health to Firefox. I even downloaded Firefox 4, but none of it worked.

I have updated to firefox 4. Several plugins do not work such as McAfee Security but Windows Media Player plugin does not work. I have uninstalled firefox 4 and Media Player plugin. I reinstalled everything but the Media Player plugin failed again. The screen just remains blank. The blank screen occurs when testing Media Player using the Mozilla test link. I would like to go back to firefox 3.6 since I cannot use firefox 4 with all the problems but I cannot find any archived versions.

Alright Firefox, I'm tired of piddling around with Flash player. Used to work just fine, then you "upgraded" Firefox, and now it no longer works. You have the audacity to recommend going back to a previous version of Flash, yet you think folks should always use the latest version of Firefox, doesn't this seem a bit flakey to you? The question is, when do you fix Firefox? I'm only really posting this to explain why Firefox is no longer a viable platform, IE9 gets the nod as far as I'm concerned, it has no problem with Flash 11.3.

Hi,

I need to state first that I am using w2000 SP5. This is a clean install, with no male ware. I understand that the OS is not supported. But, my other computer has a defective motherboard and unable to replace it now.

I am using the last version of Firefox that was available for w2000, ( ver 11.0 )

I have modified Firefox NOT to UPDATE plugins. (Because new plugins don't; work in W2000.Firefox 11.0)

I have installed the last version of Flash that works in W2000 also. ( fp_10.1.102.64_and_9.0.289.0_archive )

All works as normal. No crashes. No issues.

Except, that the install magically disappears as a plugin from Firefox.

It disappears 3 or 4 times a day. Usually after I open Firefox a few hours later.

But, it is still in installed Programs list on computer.

I have been re-installing it every time, which is VERY annoying.

I have disabled Flash from automatic updates also.

There must be something that is checking to install a new version, and deleting my current install.

But, I can't find it.

I have tried many versions of flash, and all do the same thing.

So, I believe the problem is in Firefox.

I am posting my problem at Adobe also.

Please help me. TIA

I need to be able to dynamically slow down (throttle) the speed with which my firefox downloads content. There are thousands of google links to an extension that seems to do exactly what I want: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5917/ However this is now a dead link. Why?

Is there a replacement?

About a month ago I updated firefox to 13 and flash to 11.3 and I had the common issue alot of users had of firefox crashing. So as recommended I downgraded to flash 10.3 ( I don't have real player so I knew that wasn't the issue). 4 weeks passed and I'd read online that the issue had been fixed so I updated my flash again to 11.3 . As soon as I did i started having problems with flash content again, it's not crashing like before but firefox won't display flash content like my facebook games it just sticks and won't work ( these flash games play fine on IE with no sticking so I know it's a firefox / flash issue rather than a facebook issue also the games are all made by different company's which also suggests it's not a game developer issue but the main reason I'm quite sure it's a firefox / flash issue is the fact it happened as soon as I updated to flash 11.3 again), i can watch videos but not play flash content games. I've tried firefox in safe mode (addons disabled) and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling flash 11.3. Neither made any difference What should i do ? do I need to downgrade to flash 10.3 again and if so is the issue ever going to fixed so I will beable to upgrade to 11.3 and stay on it and not have to keep downgrading flash version ?

I was previously having problems with Firefox 13 (forget which version specifically) after it updated with using Flash as many others were. I was excited to see that a v. 14 is now out and updated hoping it would solve my issues, but I am still having trouble. I feel confident it is an issue with Flash; I have gone through and individually disabled and re-enabled add-ons, and can use Firefox fine when Flash is disabled, and everyone goes down hill once re-enabled.

In general, my issues are that Gmail, Facebook, and many other websites won't load when Flash is enabled. They will start to open, get stuck, and the Firefox completely freezes. Turning off the add-on fixes all of this, and turning it back on brings it back.

I have Windows Vista as my O/S.

Any suggestions for further troubleshooting? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Firefox and Flash.

When I open IE, flash works - ruling out problems with flash, and graphics card. So ff, you're on.

I upgraded to Lion (so, Mac OS X) and using Firefox 9, together with Quicktime plugin 7.7.1.

When I open http://apple.com/trailers and choose a trailer, you can watch a trailer inline or use a download link. Although the inline works properly, the download never starts, and the external quicktime player doesn't start either.

Using the web developer console, I checked the request: [11:43:21.674] GET http://trailers.apple.com/movies/fox/prometheus/prometheus-tlr1_h480p.mov

And the answer is: [HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily 131ms]

But nothing else changes. Page doesn't reload, nothing moves.

In the preferences, Applications tab, I have all video/quicktime being handled by "Use QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.1".

I tried to change to "Ask" or to use application "Quicktime", but nothing moves :(

Thanks for any information you can give.
