Adobe Flash plugin not working properly after latest update?

Hello, since updating Firefox on 9/25/20, the Adobe Flash Plugin is not working properly. Unfortunately, I need to complete some work activities on a site that uses Flash. When I load one of these activities, I see the upper left corner of an image -- the entire thing does not load correctly. I realized that the same thing was happening on the Adobe Flash update page. While Flash is in fact running, it is showing images that are out of proportion (not running correctly).

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

After Updating Firefox Version 81 the Picture is magnified and I can’t see the whole picture. Also I can’t write something in the Login-Field. In Version 80 it worked without problem with the latest flash player Version. It seems, that in Firefox Update there’s a bug. Zooming the side doesn’t help. Pluging ist activated. Working on Mac Mojave. Has anyone an idea what‘s wrong?

Over the past few weeks my Laptop has become extremely sluggish and, on many occasions will not open the designated website. I am continually confronted by messages stating, ' a webpage is slowing your browser down ' followed by two boxes cotaining the wording ' what do you want to do, 'Stop It' - 'Wait '. Why these are submitted, I do not have a clue, they are neither activeor informative, if I click on any one of these requests, the whole message collapse and disappears. I this is someone's attempt at being clever, he should be given the dunces' cap forever and a day. I am probably off the mark here but I have a suspicion that it could be related to the FIREFOX Icon which never switches off its backlight, I have to do that manually and for a few minutes the laptop is doing its job. Could this be what is referred to the website that is slowing me down ? Any solution to my problem, or any assistance leading to a solution shall be gratefully received Regards William Walls

With Firefox 81 on Mac, the browser window only displays one-fourth of the screen when running a Flash-based web application. This did not happen with previous versions of Firefox.

When reverting back to the Extended Support Version of Firefox, this issue is not happening:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/enterprise/#download

So there is a workaround but we're supporting hundreds of clients that are using Firefox 81 on a Mac, so we need to figure out a solution without needing a workaround. Can anybody provide any insight into a solution?

Thank you in advance!

My firefox sometimes behaves slowly and the inspection is really slow and laggy all the time. When I inspect something I have to wait upwards of 3 seconds for it to be ready each time I reselect. This does not happen on my Windows PC, nor on my other Linux PC. only this one. No difference in private mode, have reinstalled and done a refresh.

Where to begin?

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

Hi guys!

I'm a college student and my university uses Blackboard as a way to access our courses. Unfortunately, my Firefox has been breaking and not loading all of my courses. My university tech support is no help and they told me to contact Blackboard and Blackboard told me to use Google Chrome. I already installed Chrome so I can use it temporarily to do my coursework but I really don't want to use it permanently, I have my computer set up exactly how I like it and I prefer to use Firefox.

I think the problem started around when the September 22nd update for Firefox was automatically installed. Some things I've tried to fix the issue are: 1. Fresh install of Windows using the Razer Blade's recovery to factory default; 2. Update Windows to latest version (except the 2004 feature update, it causes my laptop to black screen on bootup); and 3. Fresh install of Firefox and changing my privacy settings to standard rather than the strict settings I usually use.

I didn't want to install an older version of Firefox because of all the warnings on the webpage, but I'm really not sure what else I can do. Has anyone else had this happen? Any fixes?

Computer repairman attempting to help this older lady on her computer. Old battery was puffed up and expanded. Replaced but only getting a couple of hours of use. Checked battery usage and firefox is the main component of the issue. Any ideas on why this is? Battery usage in background is 34% and no other app on the computer is like this. Completely up to date.

I've been trying to call up twitter.com via Firefox on my laptop for a few days but keep getting told "the site ... has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired" and more in that vein (see image). Chrome, Edge and Brave don't have this problem. Firefox works normally otherwise. Anything I can do to fix it?

Hi all,

Currently on the latest beta on macOS Big Sur v11 beta (20A5364e).

Crashing of tabs has at least been resolved since previous versions but I am having an endless usability issue. I can have 2-5+ tabs open and clicking on the tab itself appears dead/unresponsive. Clicking a few more times (in different areas of the tab) or selecting another tab then switching back results in the tab being selected/usable/active again.

I am unable to find any common way to replicate this or reason for it - the sites in the tabs are always very much different. It's not the web site that becomes unresponsive as even when opening multiple 'new' tabs, the same issue can occur without even loading a site.

Detailed version info included.

I use windows10, version 2004 (Build 19041.330) I suppose it's not a specific firefox-problem. When accessing the site with Crome, I get the error code: status_access_violation. Has anybody an idea? it would be great!

At first I thought it was an issue with "The New Facebook," since that appeared at the same time as the 81 update. But it's not. In fact, it happened on THIS page just now. Right after I typed "The New Facebook," all the text disappeared. Cursor stayed in the same spot. When I continued typing, the old text reappeared. On other pages, large black or white areas appear, seemingly at random. You can get rid of them by pulling the drawbar up or down.

I first noticed it when scrolling through photos on Facebook. In the first screenshot (attached) you can see the photo I was navigating AWAY from, with two small rectangles containing portions of the photo I was navigating TO. And the right-hand panel (with the text and description) is all from the photo I was navigating TO.

The second screenshot shows a typical Facebook page (or, what's SUPPOSED to be one) right after I typed a comment.

This problem does NOT show up on the new version of Microsoft Edge. (Not sure about the old Edge, I don't have it.)


My cache is empty, I'm on Windows 10 1909, all drivers are updated.

Hi,

   So the weird thing is my firefox is showing the top sites I've been to yesterday and the months before and I have gone to these sites to see if they remember what I've clicked on and they do but when I go to the dropdown toolbar for history it is only coming up for today's recent history and I have no idea why. I would like to have that previous history back as there's some sites I would like to go back on. The search bar is only coming up with those websites highlighted as well.
