Wasn't there some change in Firefox recently that priorities flash over other flash objects that do not have focus?

I swear I thought I read something like this in the release notes, but now going back I can't find anything. I noticed some occasional skips in Pandora today, could be network congestion, but it's never happened before. Then I thought I remembered something got changed with regards to how flash objects are handled when not in focus or something.

After following these instructions:


   Close Firefox
   Open the Windows run dialog
   Type %appdata% and run it
   Open the Mozilla folder
   Open the Firefox folder
   Open the profiles folder
   Open the folder with the .default at the end
   Rename the pluginreg.dat to pluginregbackup.dat
   Uninstall Adobe Flashplayer from your computer
   Reinstall Adobe Flashplayer from here 
I still have the same problem, I noticed there are 2 folders with .default at the end. I tried doing one folder, uninstalling and reinstalling, didn't work. I went back and did the other folder with .default and still flash is not being detected. I also made sure in add ons Flash is enabled to work. I'm at a lost now.

If I click update on adobe to load the page to update Flash player it won't load. When I click on an email that takes me to a website to verify something (such as an ad) it won't load but just shows a black page. Have had numerous other issues lately including with my location not being detected despite the fact that I don't have the tracking blocking on. These issues are obviously not normal and I have been using Firefox for about three years now.

Since updating Firefox to 64 bit, Adobe Flash fails on Google Finance

I have been using Firefox 32 bit for years, on Windows 10 for almost a year. I spend a lot of time (most of every weekday) with Google Finance open, looking at specific stocks. One example would be NFLX (https://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ%3ANFLX&ei=Zg1pWaDgFJCBmAHjx474DA). The graph on that page uses Adobe Flash. This was all working fine until today, after I updated Firefox to the 64 bit version.

Now when I have that sort of Google Finance page open, Firefox eventually hangs telling me that the Flash plug-in is at fault. I have to take the choice to kill the add-in to get control of Firefox back. I tried updating Adobe Flash, but that changed nothing. Possibly because I spend most of my time on another tab, all these failures occur when Google Finance is on an inactive tab.

Why doesn't Firefox work on Kenken anymore?

Hi. I have downloaded and installed the latest Adobe flashplayer and told "Manage Plug-ins" to allow it to run and to "remember this decision," but https://www.nytimes.com/crosswords/game/kenken still won't load.

I just closed the browser and re-opened it, and checked the "Manage PLug-ins" button, and once again it has not saved the instruction to allow Adobe to run on the site.

The site still works fine with Safari.

This is really annoying. What am I missing?

Thanks!

is a little annoying seeing in the add-ons manager that "you need to update" when I do have the latest version, because of a version that at first sight seems not to have any purpose ( unless it is meant in case I go 32 bit? )

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.
