Hello. I have searched and tried to solve this for days now and I simply can't figure it out.

Firefox version: Mozilla Firefox 31.5.3 ESR Firefox plays a presentation with MP4 video.

At first we got this error generally when we tried to play MP4: Video Format or MIME Type is not supported Adding: "AddType video/mp4 .mp4" to the .htaccess file on the server solved that. After this we have been able to play mp4 inside Firefox without any issues. We can even start Firefox from within a script as long as we run this script from the command line or Desktop menu as the standard user.

However running the exact same script using crontab for the standard user, again results in the "Video Format or MIME Type is not supported" error. Export display is set and Firefox does open as it should. Youtube videos and everything else in the presentation is working. We simply just can't play MP4 video content. Just as if the .htaccess information is ignored or what ever else could be the cause.

Anyone who can explain what the differences between opening Firefox from users crontab and users Terminal console could be in terms of playing MP4 video?

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Kind Regards, Kevin

I don't want to have to activate adobe flash each time I need to use it but cannot find the option to keep it active in the add on's menu. It's very inconvenient that it has been removed. It should be the Users choice if they wish to take the risk. Is there a work around for this other than a different browser please?

Hi Team,

As a concern,we want to enquire that since our company has its own product which uses Flash technology but its been known now that firefox will not suppport adobe flash player after 2020. So if we save and continue to use an oder version of firefox(with autoupdate off),will it allow to continue usage of Adobe Flash Player after 2020? Please confirm the same or any other workaround so that adobe flash player can be used within firefox after 2020 as well.

Thanks

I have version Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.233 any version newer then this causes Firefox to crash close and reopen to same page and I have to open in safe mode and close Firefox and reopen again and then un-install Flash and then install the version listed here.

When will I be able to use a newer version of Adobe Flash Player on Firefox 3.6.13?

The reason I can't update my Firefox is because I can no longer force Firefox to save my username/passwords on my Banks website and other sites that use the feature to turn Off saving password but in this version I can bypass that command in one of the component files.

Adobe Flash & Javascript don't work even though Enabled

Ever since what I think was either a Firefox upgrade (I don't know which one) or installation of Quicktime, my Adobe Flash Plugin is perpetually crashed and I cannot play any Flash content on any website. All that displays in place of the video is a gray screen with the sad-face Lego icon and the message: “The Adobe Flash Plugin has crashed. Please reload the page to try again.” (See attached image.) But it will not resolve when reloaded.

No Flash videos on any sites work. HTML5 videos work on YouTube when tested, but non-HTML5 videos won't work.

Also, my Javascript does not seem to be working since at least some displays requiring javascript don't work. Sometimes the display just doesn't work, and sometimes I get a message that javascript is disabled and must be enabled, but it is already enabled (set to “true” in about:config).

I have spent days scouring every help forum entry I can find on troubleshooting Flash Player and Javascript. Everything on my end seems to be in order and I cannot find or fix either problem. I think it is possible the issue could have its roots in the fact that Javascript seems to not be working which may be preventing Flash Player content from working...??

Also, Flash content does work in I.E. but not in Firefox (I do not have Chrome installed so did not test in Chrome). I have too many window tabs open in Firefox and can't switch to I.E. (nor do I like to use I.E.).

PLEASE HELP as this is crippling for very important work deadlines I have.

This is what else I know and have tried:

I have a Toshiba Satellite C75D-A Laptop; Processor: AMD A6-5200 APU with Radeon HD Graphics; x64; 2.00 Ghz; RAM: 8 MB; OS: 64-bit system; Windows 8.1 (but some auto-check utilities detect it as 8.0 because it was upgraded.); Graphics Card: “Desktop Graphics” System – AMD Radeon HD 8400 (0x9830); Installed Graphics Driver Version: AMD 13.352.1004.1007 (Driver Date: 4/22/2014)

My Device Manager graphics driver updater states: “driver software is up to date.” From the AMD website: the graphics driver auto-detect utility recommended the AMD Catalyst Driver (amd-catalyst-omega-14.12-without-dotnet45-win8.1-64bit.exe) I tried installing this driver, but it won't install. After trying to install, I got a message stating: “We are unable to find a driver for your system.” But Device Manager states I have a current driver, and my graphics card & driver seem to be working fine, so I do not believe this is part of the issue.

I am using Latest Firefox version 35.0.1; and Using Latest Flash Player: 32-bit NPAPI Plug-in Version: 16.0.0.296; designated: “always activate” (Downloaded new update several times, including fresh install after uninstall; system & web address icons indicate Flash is enabled).

I turned off hardware acceleration in FF Tools>Options>Advanced>General

I disabled WebGL as explained here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

I am using Ad-Block Plus which has never affected things in the past. I have not tried starting FF in Safe Mode because I believe I will lose all open tabs and not be able to recover them (I may have over 200 open). But disabling add-ons has no effect (I disabled all except for Sessions Manager in case of a crash). (My No-Script has been disabled for at least six months.)

I have Windows Media Player and Quicktime installed.

Quicktime is most recent upgrade (7.7.6) so should not be a problem according to: “QuickTime plugin takes over Flash” at: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Disabling_Protected_Mode_in_Flash_11.3 (note underscores in place of spaces in string; underscores not insertable here)

Disabling Quicktime had no effect in the prior version of FF (ver. 35.0), but in latest FF ver. 35.0.1, Flash videos only display a plain (blank) gray screen instead of the sad-faced icon and crash message.

(I tried to uninstall Quicktime altogether, but was not able to due to Error codes 2502 & 2503. I tried troubleshooting that as well with no luck using methods successful for other programs, including here: http://www.fixkb.com/2014/01/error-2503-and-2502-when-uninstalling-on-windows-8.html; & here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-winapps/re-internal-error-codes-2502-and-2503-for/ba5f2145-aa6e-4cc0-81a7-e4346f43b698.)

Disabling my FF theme and using the default brought back the sad-faced icon and crash message in the place of videos on some YouTube pages, but not other YouTube pages (where video was still blank gray screen). It also enabled a still Flash image (an ad) to display on a different website page that previously had a Flash Plugin crash message. I have been using this same theme for a couple of years without previous issue. While turning it off did generate an effect on some still imagery, it didn't fix the video problem.

I tried Disabling Protected Mode in Flash 11.3 as explained here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Disabling_Protected_Mode_in_Flash_11.3 (note underscores in place of spaces in string; underscores not insertable here). It did not solve the issue.

I also deleted all storage & data in Flash Player as advised. This had no effect either.

I've tried all solutions I've been able to find and am at a loss for what to try next. Please help and advise ASAP. Thank you!!

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

There is a major problem with firefox is that if I don't upgrade flash, firefox will show a message and I need to click to activate flash.

I don't want this. My computer is 100% safe (none of firefox's business to warn outdated flash plugin to me)

I just want to get rid of that silly message of telling me to upgrade flash - I will NOT upgrade.

Is there a way to force firefox to STOP post those silly warning messages?

If not, I will check and modify firefox's source code to do so. I really HATE this.

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.
