I have used Firefox from the very beginning—well, almost. But over the past year or so a lot of things graphics related simply don't work; or took weeks or months to implement, such as applications requiring Adobe Flash. Now, I have reached the point of changing my default browser to Google Chrome. I really don't have much choice since I have cut the cable-cord, and moved into an area where tall trees block DirecTV satellite signals. Are there any plans in the works at Mozilla to rectify the situation? If so, when? If not, that is so sad.

I was having troubles with the Cinnamon desktop and had to switch video cards. I found Firefox crashed right away. I then replaced the video card and reloaded from scratch and the Cinnamon desktop works fine but Firefox still goes straight to crash report. In fact I tested and even Thunderbird goes straight to crash report. It does appear to send out the info and it created a report but I can't do a copy and paste of the report since I can't send anything out myself. The version that came with the Linux Mint 19.1 Distro 32 bit should be a 32 bit version. Both Firefox and Thunderbird is working fine on my other two 64 bit machines running Mint 19.1 64 bit.

I went to some website that asked me to run Adobe Flash Player and now ever since I did the videos on youtube wont start playing until I click on them to. I want to set them so they start playing on their own again.

I tried turning on autoplay on youtube, but that didn't help. I tried going to the add-ons and changing to Always Activate, but that didn't work. I even tried Never Activate. I then looked at the Adobe Flash Player settings within the Control Panel, but nothing there helped.

I'm now considering uninstalling the program, but I'm confused, is it Adobe Flash Player that I need to uninstall or Adobe Shockwave Player? And, will this make it so videos don't play at all?

When I try to update my Flash Player I get a message that says Firefox does not support my Adobe flash player. It will not tell me what one to try. It just has a whole list of flash player versions that it does not support. I can't play my favorite game Just Words. That's all I ask of my computer right now that I can not do. I try to play it and it crashes almost every time. It freezes up, wipes the game out or whatever so that I can not play it. I have tried to access Internet Explorer thinking it would let me play my game and when I click on it I get the message Can not find Firefox, etc. I am getting so frustrated with Firefox. My sister's husband said it was the best browser to use so I started using it a long time ago. Now I'm beginning to think I should completely uninstall it and use something else. A lot of the time when I'm trying to play my game it slows and stops working completely. Then I get the very hated message pop up that says, A web page is slowing down your browser, what do you want to do, with the choice of Stop it or wait. I have tried clicking both and nothing works. It keeps annoyingly popping back up and I am sick to death of it. What is wrong and what can I do to fix it please???

The latest version of Firefox is not allowing flash player to store local content on computer? Every time I open a page on WGT.com, it asks to store local content. Tried going to global settings and adding, but it will not let me add any websites. I rolled Firefox back to the previous version and it works fine.

Running Firefox 64bit version. So far, any Firefox after v63.0.3 won't allow Citi-Bank citi card virtual account numbers to function. Virt. acct #s uses Flash. I have flash enabled, but the virtual account number screen starts to build then just stops with no error message. I can then uninstall the newer version of Firefox and reinstall v63.0.3 and everything works just fine. Have not tried using the 32bit version of Firefox, but am considering switching to see if it works. For safety reasons, I prefer to use virtual (one-time) credit card numbers.

Flash Player 32.0.0.101 Firefox v64 (64-bit) Windows 10

With this configuration Flash content does not work.

On Windows 7 Enterprise, the same version of Flash Player and Firefox

It looks like it is trying to load under Windows 10 but ultimately what is displayed is a blank screen.

Is anyone else running Windows 10 with Firefox and Flash Player and getting it to work. I cannot post the URL because the application is a inhouse application and requires logging in.

I play Flash games on Kongregate every now and then, but - for whatever reason - Firefox 64 blocks them from saving.

They load OK but something (which must be a new setting that Firefox 64 added) is blocking them from saving new data, both automatically and when I manually click 'save' on games with this option. Nothing is writing to the Appdata folder where the game data is stored (stored as .sol files).

Never had the problem before, and everything works again if I revert to 63.0.3. Any ideas what could be causing it?

Many thanks in advance.

Upgrade from 63 to 64, no extensions/addons or security apps present. Flash enabled to make the login page available. After inputing username/password and selecting domain, hitting enter or pressing Login does nothing. Our only solution at the moment is to downgrade to 63 and disable automatic updating.

I am unable to stream xfinity on Firefox.

I do have the latest version of Flash installed. The icon does come up in the address bar and it asks me whether I want to allow Flash to run. I click on allow and nothing happens.

I can run these streams using all the other popular browsers.

Hi All,

I'm looking for some specific information on the Flash Player End of Life. I can find many, many articles, blogs, etc that state Adobe will end support for flash at the end of 2020. I'm looking of specific dates and versions if known as well as any information on specifics from MS (IE), Google (Chrome) and Mozilla (FF) on the same. I'm hoping I can get officially announcement documentation from each browser vendor and adobe itself. Essentially I'm looking to know if we can continue to support an app written in Adobe Flex beyond the end of 2020 by using an older version of a browser (as a last resort) and if so which browser & version.

I need to run Adobe Connect. It doesn't seem to work in Firefox, probably (I think) because of sandboxing. Rather than disabling sandboxing in general, I'd rather use the Connect desktop app. But, before I knew of this problem, I ticked the "always allow" box when the Connect website wanted to run Flash. Now, I need that website to be disallowed from running Flash, because then it sends me to the desktop app when I click the meeting link on the conference host's website. I can achieve this by going to my add-ons preferences and disabling Flash on all websites before the conference, then re-enabling it afterwards. But I'd rather just remove the Connect website from the list of "always allow" sites for Flash. How can I do this?

When logged into www.bankofamerica.com and after selecting an account, I use "Shop Safe", a feature that provides a made-up CC number, a $ limit of my choice, expiration date of my choice, and a CVC1 code. This CC number is good for ONE TIME ONLY use. It sends money from my "real" CC account without revealing my "real" CC number and other details! Recently, even though updated Fire Fox browser is operating normally, the little "Shop Safe" window that appears will not "transfer data" like it once did. Their URL is not loading correctly...it tries to load, but nothing shows up inside the small web page. Here is the (partially edited) URL that makes that happen ...

https://shopsafe.bankofamerica.com/Athena/HTMLServlet ... some stuff edited out here ... then ends with Transparency_Indicator=0

I am unable to edit this URL. I can copy it however...just didn't want to put the complete URL in here for now.

This feature works OK in a Chrome browser, but only AFTER I "Click to Enable Adobe Flash" on a funny little symbol

in the middle of the blank space, and resubmit the page.  After doing that once, I don't have to do it again it seems.  

I have to do the same thing in an Edge browser (a little sign comes up in both saying "Click to Enable Adobe Flash". After clicking the symbol, I am asked to "Resend" to get the Shop Safe contents to show up in the window.

I don't get that little prompt message and funny symbol when using Fire Fox. I looked around Fire Fox and found a "switch" program to turn off/on Javascript (there is now a little "JS" symbol in the tool bar). Javascript is required by the main BankofAmerica web page, so I leave the JS switch in the on position.

QUESTION: How do I check to see if Adobe Flash is enabled in Fire Fox (I think it's turned off by default) ??? If it is not on and the "work around API" doesn't work, how can I turn on Adobe Flash in order to use Shop Safe. I'll turn it off again if I need to. I read that Fire Fox doesn't consider Adobe Flash safe, but I seem to need it for this use.

Thanks very much for your help. I'll look for an answer via eMail please. HEA1
