I've looked over other people's similar questions and found no help in any.

I've disabled Hardware acceleration and everything is up to date.

Videos freeze and then the stupid crash message tells me to stop the Shockwave Plug-in. If I continue it will freeze the browser until the crash error pops again.

This has been happening for over a week now out of nowhere.

I had the same problem several months back but it went away somehow.

I used to be able to watch videos on netflix no problem using firefox but now when I click on a video it just takes me to a blank black screen. Everything is up to date so I don't think that's it. When I use a different browser like Chrome or IE it works fine. How do I fix this?

Firefox 34 disables the up to date flash player. If I enable it manually and try to view flash content, the cursors blinks with the busy symbol until I close the tab that has the flash content. I also noticed that there are no flash plugin processes running on task manager, so it seems like somehow firefox fails to start them.

Have tried reinstalling both flash and firefox but it made no difference. Flash works normally on chrome. Please help!

Why does Firefox cause my system audio to function improperly?

Recently (since yesterday to be precise), I've had strange audio issues. What happens is audio works fine, but after a while it won't play all of the sounds it's trying to. This happens on a system wide level, as in clicking the global audio volume mixer won't always play a sound when clicked. I don't mean it plays and shows the sound playing yet no sound is heard; it straight up doesn't play the sound. Audio won't play on YouTube videos unless paused and played a few times, and Windows Media Player says there are problems playing files while this is going on. The problem continues to worsen over time, eventually making nearly all attempted audio plays to fail.

Opening FL Studios (which I have set to use specific, sound recording audio codecs) and closing it resets the problem and audio will work as normal. I found out today that closing Firefox fixes the problem immediately as well. This leads me to strongly believe that Firefox is the culprit.

I should note that I only remember experiencing this issue while working on a game that uses Audio elements (and potentially quite a few, albeit they are usually copies). I usually have the global volume for the game turned off when working, if that helps.

Firefox crashes frequently. Between crashes, I constantly get 'Shockwave player may be busy or not responding' warnings and everything stops for a while.

I think I've tried everything. Start up in safe mode, updated firefox and extensions and even shockwave and flash from Adobe and still does this.

Please help

Hey,

I have Firefox 35.0.1 installed and last about a week i have noticed my browser being a lot slower than usually. (can not see any notable difference in any other application on my computer). My system is set to fully automatically update applications and system! I heard and read this forum about problems between my current FF version and flash, so decided to check my system regarding to shockwave flash. to be honest, i was surprized. This is what i saw:

ADD-ONS MANAGER: Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.442 Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 Always Activate

Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.235 Shockwave Flash 16.0 r0 Always Activate

Shockwave for Director 12.1.5.155 Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.1.5.155 Ask to Activate


PLUGIN CHECK PAGE These plugins are up to date

Adobe Flash Player Status Up to Date 16.0.0.235 Action Up to Date

Unknown Plugins Adobe Shockwave 12.1.5.155 Research

I am now carefully listening for suggestions such as what to keep, change or remove from my system

Although several sources/users are saying Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.235 is raported out-of-date by firefox and even new out-of-date versions are raported being out, my auto-update system says 235 is up-to-date. How? Why?

My add-ons Manager shows an old Shockwave Flash as well, which is not listed on plugin check page. Might it be involved making 235 listed ok? Why arent 11.2 auto-replaced/removed when 16.0 already exists? should i remove 11.2 or rather keep it over 16.0, which is raported faulty by several users?

Research shows latest adobe shockwave is 12.1.6 over my current 12.1.5. Why isnt that determined by Firefox, showing just questionmark with word research?

PS! are there any explanations for terms: - Adobe Flash - Shockwave Flash - Adobe Shockwave - Which extension does what?

thank you in advance.

edit: added images PS! side-remark: this forum detects my firefox version as 35.0, while 'About Firefox' shows 35.0.1 - seemed imortant to mention
