While playing a YouTube video and either pausing it or clicking to change the resolution quality,. or clicking on ANYTHING inside the video, scrolling is disabled . This has been going on since July. I've had it with two computers and two versions of the touch pad, including the latest one. The touch pad scrolling is disabled as well as the arrow keys for me also.
It's not caused by addons, restore points and reinstalling Firefox don't fix it, and it also happens with several Adobe Flash versions, including the current 11.5.502.110. and 10.3 Rolling back to Adobe Flash 10.3.183.43 for BOTH Firefox and Internet Explorer Active X version, allows you to click on the page to reenable scrolling but you shouldn't even have to do that.. All other trouble shooting steps are useless. Clicking on the page alone doesn't work with the 11.5. This NEVER happens with IE9 or Chrome 23. It also happens if you change anything in the video.... clicking on replay, or changing the resolution. Disabling Protected Mode by adding a command line ProtectedMode=0 to the mms.cfg file is the best workaround with 11.5, but you still have to click once on the page, and this defeats the purpose of Protected Mode.
1. Install Adobe Flash 10.3 for BOTH Firefox and the Active X Flash version for Internet Explorer, then click on the page to re enable scrolling whenever it gets disabled.
To Uninstall Adobe Flash:
To Install Flash 10.3. Click on the the link below and on the page that opens click on the link for each browser. Firefox is the one "for other browsers".
2.With Adobe 11.5. Flash Player 10.3 for Internet Explorer Either click on the desktop and then click on the page, which is definitely the easiest, or:
3.Switch tabs and then back, or:
4. click on another application and then back, but that's reasonable only if you're doing that normally, otherwise it's much too awkward.
I posted a very detailed bug about this on Bugzilla on 11/16 but so far no one's picking it up to work on it as of 11/20. I've also reported this in Suggestions as a complaint. I've posted this same issue on another thread weeks ago, all to no avail.
The Developers need to understand that experienced users like me are going to put up with just so much of this garbage and then .we switch to Chrome. The average user doesn't even hang around that long and many of them never come back. is there ever going to be a fix for this? I promise you one thing- if there isn't, people are going to be eventually switching Chrome in droves! Staff is just ignoring this and it's not the first time I've seen them with their heads in the sand. Their infamous "Support" articles cannot help with an obvious Developer issue, but that's all they seem to be willing to do. How about they contact the Developers, and get this fixed - is that too much to ask after four damn months?
The Developers really need to coordinate this with Adobe's Engineers. It certainly doesn't seem like they're doing that, and if they are, then Staff needs to come down from their ivory tower and tell us.
