Firefox: 16.0.1 Flash player: 11.4

- Running in safemode - Latest video drivers

When on a youtube video, I can move the mouse around the buttons and it will take about 3 seconds for the mouse to travel between the buttons. The same happens on the BBC News website.

All other flash videos seem to function correctly.

Watching youtube/BBC news in IE works fine. Currently, FF is unusable for these websites.

This also happens in safe mode.

I enjoy playing Flash based browser games but they've been running slow recently. I opened my computer's task manager to see what was going on and noticed that as I kept playing, the amount of RAM being used by Flash kept going up. All the way to 1.5 GB of RAM. I think that flash is saving pieces of game data that are not necessary. Anyone know how to make it stop doing that?

Installed Firefox 13 yesterday. Now flash doesn't work. Have done all the supposed fixes to no avail. Have uninstalled and reinstalled flash. I'm at my wits end with this issue. I'm a web designer who uses flash in a number of my sites. VERY IRRITATING when my sites don't display properly. Anyone have a solution other than the pat Mozilla "fixes"?

I am trying to display streaming content from 4 webcams within my local network. This works properly on my Linux Mint box with Firefox 48.0, but does not work on My macbook running OSX El Capitan 10.11.5 on Firefox 50.1.0. Also same problem on my IMac.

The html code is like this...

<object type="application/x-vlc-plugin" data="rtsp://LWK-????:????????@192.168.1.xx:554/img/video.sav" width="500" height="375" id="video1"> <param name="movie" value="rtsp://192.168.1.0/archive/xxxxxxxxxxx"/> <embed type="application/x-vlc-plugin" name="video1" autoplay="no" loop="no" width="500" height="375" target="rtsp://LWK-????:????????@192.168.1.???:554/img/video.sav" />

I downloaded Flip4mac, as was advised on a post I found on stackoveflow, but that made no difference.

How do I know which plugin is needed? Searching on extensions, I see nothing for x-vlc-plugin. Is extension same as plugin? What do I download if not Flip4mac?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks, Joe

Please fix Mozilla Firefox. Suggesting that users get rid of skype is not a solution. I have an older computer, and when I use that, I don't have these script errors, apparently because that computer wouldn't accept the latest skype update. So no problem on that one. I need skype on both computers and I can't continue working at the slow pace that this script message is causing.

Hi!

HTML5 is great and I hope to get rid of Flash as soon as possible. That said, something is still bothering me when I play an HTML5 video (on youtube for instance): the screensaver is still on even though I'm full-screen.

Is there a config I missed or is it a bug within Firefox?

Before an administrator responds, please read, as I have noticed that many times concerning this issue, in other threads, the admins will respond like cartoon characters, not really listening to what people are saying. I have no extensions or add-ons in Firefox (latest version), Chrome (latest version), and Internet Explorer. When I have a blank page open, and only one page, Chrome is using 52M of RAM, IE is using 47M, and Firefox is using 153M. It is a freshly-reinstalled copy, I have no preferences at all, no bookmarks, nothing. Can anyone explain why Firefox is required to use three times as much memory as the other two competitors?

A lot of people have this problem, so did i.

It only happened if i was logged on as an user (on multiple computers), thus the administrator user account didn't had any problems.

After multiple months of frustration and browsing the internet for a solution i was at the point of try to change each setting in Firefox and see if it would work, if not set it back. Luckily my first educated guess was the correct one! :)

What worked for me was to set the 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' to false in about:config

1. Thus type in your browser the next url: about:config 2. Click the button: 'I'll be carefull, I promise!' 3. type in the new searchbar: 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' 4. double click on the preference to set it to false. 5. close the tab in Firefox 6. close (all instances of) Firefox 7. start Firefox 8. happy surfing :)

Enjoy

Please don't tell me the bug is "impossible to fix" and pass the buck to Adobe. I engineer software myself and such a reply is far from acceptable. Sure, I've no doubt Adobe is culpable too, but I don't have time to write everyone an e-mail, especially if they couldn't give a damn.

hi all

Pretty straight forward (I hope):

Currently using Firefox 31.0 on windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just realised that I've got about 20 sets of pending crash reports (.dmp and .extra) located here:

...AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports\pending

Date-range is Feb to Aug 2014, so presumably applies to approx firefox versions 29-31.

Is there a way to force / request submission of these reports?

I have no particular desire to delete them - they don't take up much HD space.

However, there's no point in keeping them if I can't trigger a submission process.

Also, I would like to contribute to bug-resolution by proving the reports.

Btw, I think they are probably mostly Flash related.

This is not just a whinge. The Flash plugin seems to fall over quite frequently (for me anyway) - certainly appears the only one I can rely on to misbehave! I checked the top plugin crash submissions too for the last 28 days on mozilla's crash-stats (filtering on FF 31 and windows)... and... the top 3 entries, which account for 55% of all plugin crashes, appear all to be flash related lol (gJ adobe) ;)

Anyway, if anyone can tell me how to submit these pending reports, I'd be grateful.


Regards,

Gary

PS I noticed, when providing FF's troubleshooting info for this post, that I got a crash report submission (automatically) about 15 mins ago... and one pair of files has disappeared from my Pending folder.

Do I just have to be patient then? I use FF a lot, so don't really understand what circumstances trigger the report submission (i.e. it's not a question of just having FF open / active).

Thanks again for any assistance rendered.

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?

Hi (I don't know english good, sorry), I have a strange trouble with html5. It's started yesterday evening, after update 10.04.2015, I'm using FF Dev. Edition (aurora).

It's not working too, but "Your browser does not support H.264/MP4." didn't written, just black rectangle. I'm trying ogg, and it's work. Before the update all worked fine, I have watched video in html5 only. Whats I doing wrong or it's bug from the last update? In FireFox (not aurora, not beta), I can watching html5 fine, all my codecs installed on PC. Thanks.

UPD1 : Patch 39.0a2 (2015-04-11), problem is actual yet.
