Flash player add-on crashes in all applications OSX 10.9.2; Firefox (28.0) safe mode didn't help. Re-installed Flash, rebooted, no luck. Any ideas?

Flash stopped working the same day that Norton Anti-Virus [version 10.6 (26)] reported, "(Web Attack: Angler Exploit kit Flash Download 4) blocked." I suppose this means that the malware was not installed; so may be only a coincidence.

The HTML5 youtube video referenced on the Mozilla site, "Amazing Roger Federer trickshot on Gillette ad shoot," works fine. The non-HTML5 version reports the flash player crashed. Game site, bubbleshooter.com won't work either.

Troubleshooter plugin installed. Tried Firefox safe mode, no help. Safari browser also has flash player crash. Can't figure out how to turn off hardware acceleration because the player never appears in the browser so that I can right-click on it.

Any help with this would be appreciated!

I have stopped using Firefox as nothing I have done has fixed this problem. I have tried shutting down Firefox and rebooting it, I cleared all my add-ons and then added adblock back (that's the only one) but it still doesn't work. I've deleted large files so that I have more space - I can't think of anything else that will work. I have spoken to four of my friends with Macs and they are all having the same problem with Firefox since Mavericks.

I am downloading a bunch of short films roughly 25 to 40 minutes each. I am using Time Warner Cable with a download speed of 30 mpbs.

I noticed that I can only download 6 films at one time using Firefox. When one of them is finished, then I can download another clip.

Is there a way that I can increase the number of downloads to a new maximum amount?

The mail program on Yahoo has been frozen in Firefox, no other browser. Yesterday, I opened it, and i was unable to delete mail because the whole toolbar with delete, reply, forward, spam, etc. was no longer on my mail window. I tried to send an email, but this function was also disabled.

Basically, the only thing that Firefox enables in Yahoo mail is loading new emails. I had to use Safari and Chrome to perform these functions on the toolbar that is still missing in Firefox.

What happened? How to restore these functions?

After clicking on a youtube video it will play for 3-5 seconds. Then the video will refresh (not the entire site). The gear that allows you to change quality will still be there but when I click it all of the quality options disappear. Then the video plays fine but I'm stuck watching it in 480p. It doesn't happen on chrome or even when I play a youtube video in a private window! This started happening about a week ago and it's getting really annoying watching 480p videos and listening to the first 3-5 seconds of every video twice.

A separate window popped up and said, "Congratulations, you have won the 2014 Annual Visitor Survey (Houston). I answered the survey questions, and then it gave me the choice of 3 prizes. That's where I stopped and realized that this may be a scam of some sort. Does Firefox even do this kind of thing, because it looks really well done. If not, is there a way to report this as a scam? If I did win something, that's great, but I want to make sure this is safe first. Thank you

This happened since 2-3 days ago. I didn't install or download anything. Also, my settings are on "Remember history" and I have tried the custom settings. In addition, I'm not on private browsing. All of my history is still there except the ones from 2-3 days ago. For example, my "Today" history is not there. Bookmarking still works. I don't know if this helps but I do experience occasional crashes in Firefox although I doubt that would be the cause because I had experienced these crashes since a long time ago. This problem is only recent.

I included the troubleshooting information if that helps.
