I have Firefox 73.0.1 ((64 bit) and am running the latest version of FLASH as an add-on.

Lately, when using FLASH within FF, sometimes the screen goes white, sometimes it goes black. I cannot seem to figure out what to do and how to restart FLASH or get back to where I was. Also, I cannot figure out how to get the DISPLAY settings for FLASH This has recently started about 2 weeks ago. I have no other problems with FF

Currently having really bad screen tearing only in Firefox. It happens on every video I watch in the browser. I have updated all drivers including my GPU's. Both my monitors have gsync. I've adjusted the Vsync settings in the nvidia control panel to see if that would correct the issue but it did not. I've also disabled and enabled hardware acceleration. I've went into about:config and adjusted the layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true. I've also ran firefox in safemode and still saw the problem persist. I don't have this problem in Chrome, edge, or any other application.

Here are the system specs.

OS: Windows 10 64bit CPU:AMD Ryzen 3600 RAM 16GB DDR4 3600MHz GPU: GTX 1080ti Mobo: B450

Nothing seems to work. An appropriate plugin seems to be installed and, after downloading the latest version from Adobe, a retry informed me that Flash was already installed. Firefox does not agree. The download from Adobe informs me that upgrading is a 3-stage process but takes me no further than stage 1. This used to be a doddle under XP. You just found and ran the executable file in the Download folder. I can find no executable files in my Download folder. My current Linux version is 18.3 Sylvia. I am sure that this used to be handled automatically by Firefox updates in previous Mint versions. Now, however, it doesn't seem to matter what I try - whether using the Mint's Software function or going onto Adobe's download page. I always seem to finish up in the same place with the computer just looking at me and declaring that Flash is already installed. The Firefox Addons list includes Flash but nothing I do will get it working.

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?

I was suddenly getting prompts to update Flash Player. This hadn't happened in months, so I hadn't updated Flash Player in a good while. The first time, I ignored the warning prompt and activated Flash anyway and played the video. This was from tcm.com (Turner Classic Movies). The second time, I decided I'd better update Flash Player, and did so. But now the video wouldn't play at all. There was a locked box icon. I searched on various fixes, looked at a few Mozilla support pages, did a plug-in change starting from the sandwich icon at upper right, same thing. Found another fix idea. Went into the C drive, navigated eventually in Windows to the Macromed and Flash folders, and deleted NPSWF32_9_0_0_169.dll. The red locked box went away. A video played. Next time out, though, back to nothing. In IE, the link will play.

I have been using a banking website for credit card management for years. Today, after the Firefox update, the website is having issues. A pop-up page is not responding. The popup is allowed and does open but a Flash Player application is not loading properly and the popup window goes blank. At that point the browser itself becomes completely frozen. I have refreshed Firefox, have stopped all security on the computer and nothing seems to correct the problem. I have checked the Flash Player application and its seems to be installed and working properly. I have been able to access the page from three other browsers with no problem. Not sure what the issue may be but I will say that with this most recent Firefox update I have experienced more issues with page loadings, security snags and just plain errors than I have in quite some time.

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.

Sometime in the past 3 months, when I use Replay Poker's site almost every time, or occasionally when I use Angry Birds Friends on Facebook in Mozilla (both use flash), and leave a poker table or the ABF game, it freezes my Mozilla browser. When using Replay's site this happens 8-10 times out of 10. With ABF, it happens 1 out of every 5-6 times I use it. I am unable to click on or in the browser window, and cannot close the browser with the x at the upper right of the window. The only thing that works at that point is to hold my mouse over my Mozilla icon in the taskbar, and when the small window icons pop up, I can close them using the x on the small icon. What seems to reset the browser is if I have two or more tabs open, and click the upper-right x while mouse hovering over the taskbar icon, getting the "close multiple tabs?" warning. If I click no, then the browser usually seems to reset and start operating normally again. Though, sometimes that still does not allow me to open a new flash window, so I have to completely close Mozilla and restart it again. I have noted a couple other mentions of this problem, but have yet to find a solution that works.

My graphic card drivers are updated. I am using the most updated version of Flash as well.

I have a website that contains embedded slideshows from Flickr: http://2016.crossroads-festival.org/de/fotosaudio/fotos2016.html

My issue is that in Chrome the slideshows are displayed after I explicitly allow Flash. See this screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/UjpqfLr

However, in Firefox nothing is displayed. There is not even an option to enable Flash. When I look at the HTML source code in Firefox, I can see that Firefox completely removed the embed HTML-code.

    • My questions are:**
- Why is Firefox removing the content?
- How can I show the slideshows in Firefox?

Hi,

I haven't been able to make Flash Player plugin work on Debian 9 for months. I have tried the two alternative ways described in the Debian wiki to install it, that is to say manually from Flash Player website or thanks to a small .sh script (since there is no more package for flashplayer in Debian 9). See https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer#Debian_9_Stretch

On any of these installs I get flash player crashing as soon as I open a webpage which needs it.

Here's for example a crash report for my problem: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/e87a1b4f-ec3c-49dc-a3a7-7d6f90181105 . Something I don't understand is the field "Signature" with "libasound.so" in. Dunno why it appears here, while my problem is about flash.

If someone can give me some advices on how to solve the problem, I would be very grateful! I already tried to run Firefox in safe mode but it didn't help.

Thank you ! :)

Hello, I have followed every single help article provided by Firefox to "enable" shockwave flash. I've restarted browser 3 times, I've restarted computer twice, and I have cleared cache/cookies multiple times. Around 75% of the websites I use on a daily basis do not load a single object that is conected to Flash. It doesn't exist on Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or any web browser that I've tried downloading. Yes, the most current update of adobe flash IS installed on this computer and yes, I have uninstalled and re-installed adobe flash beyond 6 times already. A computer and the internet is useless without the use of the flash plug-in. I can't even access 75% of the internet and it is beyond stupid. Please help me fix this. I don't need a computer if I can't access the internet and I hate using mobile as you can't use banking or anything else on it. It is not user error.

I am using 2 monitors. When i open a stream on my first monitor and fullscreen it and do nothing else, it works. But the moment i click anywhere on my second monitor, the flash full screen closes down and basically showing me the original size within the webpage. Only Firefox has this problem. No other browser has this.

How can i fix this issue?


Additional info: - Windows 10 Home 1607 - Firefox 59.0.2 - (P)NPAPI Plugin version 29.0.0.140

Additional question: If this issue can be resolved, is there a way to keep flash player on my computer but basically force website to use HTML5 player and stop making them say things like "Flash player required" or "Please activate Flash player"?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I have a problem since a few days, I can't use Flash on any website, I keep getting the message "this content needs flash" or stuff like that.

I did uninstall and reinstall Flash from Adobe website for Firefox. I did check last updates for Flash AND Firefox. I did check settings to make sure Flash was activated : it is.

I did change some settings in about:config a long time ago but hadn't any troubles, could it be that ? What should I do ?

Thanks.

With Flash Player installed for Firefox, you can go to this URL and a container on this page is flash. https://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html

You just see an empty space where the flash content should display, there is no Allow or Flash icons in the URL bar either.

Hello,

How do I disable the "Run Flash" icon in firefox? I'm not looking for a button to click on in the settings, I'd appreciate if there was a about:config flag I can set to allow always running flash content wherever.

I don't care about flash's vunerabilities, I'm only using firefox to run flash/.swf files from my local system's HDD (Literally no internet browsing) since chrome insists on downloading those instead of playing them.
