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.

We have medical data coming in 24/7. Our alarm runs off flash. Since the update there isn't a choice to "allow and remember", which is causing us to have to remember to refresh the page constantly. A big problem for the night-staff, problem for the day-staff also as we keep forgeting and data is not alarming. PLEASE HELP!!

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.

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 have been having frequent issues accessing certain websites that I use daily for work. The only fix I have found is to update my adobe flash even though it is current. When I do that and Firefox restarts, I am then able to access these websites.

However, this is a huge burden and I'm ready to pull the plug on using Firefox unless someone has input.

Hopefully it is a quick fix that I'm just not noticing? Everything was fine until Monday 2/26/18. Since then I'm constantly having to fix it.

Using Windows 10, FF 55.0.3, Shockwave plugin 27.0.0.130, Adobe Flashplayer 27 NPAPI.

I am using Adobe Bridge and select to preview a gallery in the browser. Bridge will let FF start and then I get the message (in FF), that there is no flash player installed. I installed many many times, as decribed here in several messages, so often the flash player. I also did the steps described by the college student "ComputerWhiz" (=Wesley Branton) here: https://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/1037689 (renaming pluginreg.dat). I disabled my virus scanner (E-Set). Also I deactivate in FF all the Extensions (to be sure no one causes a conflict), restarted FF but still FF does not recognize the flash player.

Please help me and do not give answers like to find out which flashplayer version I have or where to download flashplayer. Just an answer straight to the point why FF does not recognize the installed Adobe Flashplayer and how to solve it. Thx in advance

48.0.2 on Mountain Lion 10.8.5. Fullscreen video on the CNN site plays initially, then stops with a circling round arrow. Lately it has started to do this with that video on the side as you scroll down the screen, as well. Very maddening. No problems on other sites. If I cannot fix this quickly and simply I will have to go to Chrome. Updated flash yesterday, no joy. Suggestions welcome. Thank you

Have a Mac running Sierra 10.12.5. I have an application that opens through an HTML file; it wont load in Safari or Chrome; they recommend using Firefox; have downloaded firefox and installed; when I try and open the file with Firefox I get this message:

"To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.2.0 or greater is installed"

Have downloaded the latest version of flash, installed, but when i restart firefox I get the same message each time

Have looked in plugins on firefox bud Adobe flash player isnt shown, only shockwave player

Any clues as to how I can get this to work before I have to resort to trying to IE?

I just downloaded firefox (love it much more than chrome) but whenever i watch videos on any site it appears with a purple-pinkish version of the video with a green distorted version layered with it too but it does not happen in any of the other browsers. The first solution i found online was to change the "use hardware acceleration when available". i just checked it restart and unchecked it restart nothing happened, but if i have to change the number then help me that, if that is not the solution at all THEN HOW DOES ONE FIX THESE PURPLE/GREEN TINT ON VIDEOS?!
