I hate the new built in flash blocker, too much trouble to allow and disallow for certain sites and NO way to just allow for parts of a site.

Is there a way to disable it entirely? And, hopefully, allow the good old flashblock add-on that worked FLAWLESSLY to work again?

I don't understand why developers make changes that violate the old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it.".

The August 26th security update has completely screwed me over, I am constantly getting adobe and shockwave crashes now because of this, how do I fix?

I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe. This has only started happening since that update. I watched Firefox update at the time and I have had issues ever since. Most websites I go to now that have videos are now unwatchable because it constantly crashes 24/7.

What do I do to fix this? Do I just stop using firefox completely? Because that's what I am considering doing. How dumb is it for 1 update to completely screw me over? I have disabled all Addons as well and it's still the same problem.

I'm using Windows 10 x64 Build 14271

I have tried the following with no success: Refreshed Firefox, Uninstalled Flash, restarted PC, installed Flash, restarted PC, Launched Firefox, Restarted Firefox

I uninstalled Flash from Control PanelI even uninstalled Flash using: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

I have downloaded the latest version of Flash from: https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html

I used the following Mozilla website to check that Flash is updated: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ which says that I have the latest version of Flash

However, when I use Adobe's website to check if I have Flash, it says I have version 20.0.0.306 (which is the latest version) but the yellow box that displays the success message with a green checkmark is empty and the Flash animation that should play if you have Flash doesn't play (it shows as a static image) https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

I think this may have something to do with me using the latest fast ring build of Windows 10 but I'm not sure if that is what's causing the issue.

I frequent motorcycle forums , and when people posts video's (usually Instagram) all it shows is a white square with what looks like a Lego toy piece in the middle , i have Adobe Flash installed (latest version) and the video's are embedded into the webpage , even if i click or right click on the video , it does not give me any options to view it , or mention anything about a video , like its not recognized

Before i was able to just go to the page and the video would show up , now all it does is the box and i can't view anything , how do i get the video's to play ?? , and what changed to make them not play , it has been doing this for a bit , and its getting old having to go to Google Chrome or IE11 just to watch a video , i should be able to view them in Firefox as well

Below is a link to one of the forums i view , and this link is to the page that contains a video that will not play , it is the second post http://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/impressive-win-by-Colton-Haaker,1293764


So why can't i view this video ??? , and how is it fixed ???

I was able to download video by going to options/page info/media in version 41, but video no longer appears in the list. This is the case for pages where I was able to download video just 2 weeks ago. I have tried updating my addons, but that made no difference. I have seen that other people have noted this problem.

YouTube HTML5 videos fail after 23 minutes 18 seconds. The audio becomes croaky and intermittent and the video freezes. I have to click somewhere on the video timeline for video & audio to resume. The video quality doesn't appear to be a factor because videos at 240p, 480p and 720p fail at the same time (23 mins 18 secs).

I disabled all add-ons and still had the problem.

I did a fresh install of Firefox and—before installing any add-ons—tested YouTube videos and got the same issue.

I've experimented with the "Override automatic cache management" box being unticked then ticked (with cache limit set to 200MB, then 400MB).

I don't experience this YouTube playback problem with Google Chrome (using Windows XP).

Hi, there! I am close to Firefox more then 10 years, but the last one I see that Firefox overload my old Macbook A1260 C2D processor and overheat it. Mostly it appears using Adobe Sockwave. May be anyone can recommend any other plugin instead of it. It seems possible, just because Chrome is more friendly browser to my Mac :(

Hi, I have a vista computer, firefox up to date, flash up to date, but in the past week or so it started hanging and crashing with no ability to work. I have flash protection mode unchecked (not happy about that), have no access to hardware acceleration (unless there's a work around to get to it, since you need flash to work to get there), nothing has been changed on my machine since it started crashing. I do have Norton Security, and I suppose something might have automatically updated on my machine. However I suspect either Flash or Firefox updated recently, thus creating the problem. Is there any solution to this, knowing I have vista with I guess some limitations related to that? Remember, this only started happening like a week or so ago. Thanks so much for any info!!!

I just updated Adobe Flash Player to the latest version 23.0.0.185 on my Windows 10 laptop using Firefox 49.0.1. When I ran the test page from Adobe (http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/), I noticed that the new Flash Player was working, but my Shockwave Player was not. I found a newer version of Shockwave Player 12.2.5.195 and installed that. Still no go. I uninstalled Shockwave Player from Control Panel, rebooted, and reinstalled the new version of Shockwave Player. Still no go. I know this was working the last time I updated Flash Player, which was mid last month. However, it has stopped working. The list of Addons shows the new version of Shockwave for Director installed and active. I set it to always activate, but the test page still shows nothing.

I tried Shockwave in IE, and it works fine there. Does anyone have any idea why Shockwave Player would stop working? Is some plugin possibly blocking it? I do have NoScript but allowed on the Adobe Test page. I also have Adguard which is new, but I see no settings there that would affect it. Thanks.

I keep Firefox open at almost all times and when I load a new page and try and play a video, whether on youtube, Facebook, or other source, it won't play. It just stays at the loading circle the whole time. The only time it works is when I completely exit out of Firefox and re-start it. This is quite frustrating for me because I often have multiple tabs open with other things I am working on that I don't want to close. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you
