Adobe no longer support Flash for linux (and Apple?).


ABC.net.au provides video streaming to versions of flash newer than flash-player Version: 11.2.202.336-30.1

Other media providers may be doing same as ABC.net.au


Need linux (and apple) campaign targeting media providers so they move to video formats suitable for all.

Hi!

HTML5 is great and I hope to get rid of Flash as soon as possible. That said, something is still bothering me when I play an HTML5 video (on youtube for instance): the screensaver is still on even though I'm full-screen.

Is there a config I missed or is it a bug within Firefox?

(I'm using Arch Linux with GNOME)

With the terrible issues recently with Flash 12, I opted to use the extended support version of Flash 11.7r700.

The plugin checker page, however, shows that my flash is supposedly "vulnerable" but it is most definitely not (it's the latest updated version offered by adobe in their extended support cycle for corporate use)

I am trying to get flash to work with Firefox on my mac OSX 10.6.8 VM. I had an old version of flash and I just updated it. According to adobe's help page (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html), the most recent version *is* installed but the animation on that page doesn't appear, nor does any other flash-based site seem to work. In the add-ons page, shockwave flash is present, and the setting is "always activate." In every way it seems to be successfully installed, but firefox has no idea it is there. Flash works just fine for Safari. I've uninstalled and reinstalled flash completely, several times. I've restarted my VM at different points during this process. Elsewhere on this site I found advice suggesting that I try to delete pluginreg.dat. No dice. If I check the about:plugins page it states that flash is present and enabled. But it simply doesn't work.

The only possible thing I can think of is that while flash is installed in the default directory, firefox is in a custom directory. (I use this VM for automated browser testing so I have several versions of firefox installed. Flash isn't working on any of them.) Any advice?

I have windows7, security essential and all other is ok in my laptop. I keep everything up to date. Now the only problem is when I try to check it out is plug ins up to date, all other plug ins are but Adobe flash is not. It indicates vulnerable in red colour. When I proceed update now, installation goes ok but if after I recheck if all plug ins are up to date, there is AGAIN that red sign: "vulnerable". I'm near to change my browser to an other one if this annoying problem seems not to be fixed.

hi all

Pretty straight forward (I hope):

Currently using Firefox 31.0 on windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just realised that I've got about 20 sets of pending crash reports (.dmp and .extra) located here:

...AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports\pending

Date-range is Feb to Aug 2014, so presumably applies to approx firefox versions 29-31.

Is there a way to force / request submission of these reports?

I have no particular desire to delete them - they don't take up much HD space.

However, there's no point in keeping them if I can't trigger a submission process.

Also, I would like to contribute to bug-resolution by proving the reports.

Btw, I think they are probably mostly Flash related.

This is not just a whinge. The Flash plugin seems to fall over quite frequently (for me anyway) - certainly appears the only one I can rely on to misbehave! I checked the top plugin crash submissions too for the last 28 days on mozilla's crash-stats (filtering on FF 31 and windows)... and... the top 3 entries, which account for 55% of all plugin crashes, appear all to be flash related lol (gJ adobe) ;)

Anyway, if anyone can tell me how to submit these pending reports, I'd be grateful.


Regards,

Gary

PS I noticed, when providing FF's troubleshooting info for this post, that I got a crash report submission (automatically) about 15 mins ago... and one pair of files has disappeared from my Pending folder.

Do I just have to be patient then? I use FF a lot, so don't really understand what circumstances trigger the report submission (i.e. it's not a question of just having FF open / active).

Thanks again for any assistance rendered.

Hi, I use Firefox portable and use it for work. I do moderation of videos. I open a page with 5-20 videos that load with Flash Player and view them. Today there was a Firefox update to 32.0.1 version. After update when I open a page I only get 1 video loaded and the others are blank. When I right-click on area where a video should be I get "Movie not loaded..." greyed (can not click) and "About Adobe Flash Player 15.0.0.152..." I checked and I have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player plugin. It was updated few days ago and worked fine until Firefox update. I also checked to open a page with SRWare Iron (also portable browser) and everything works.

A lot of people have this problem, so did i.

It only happened if i was logged on as an user (on multiple computers), thus the administrator user account didn't had any problems.

After multiple months of frustration and browsing the internet for a solution i was at the point of try to change each setting in Firefox and see if it would work, if not set it back. Luckily my first educated guess was the correct one! :)

What worked for me was to set the 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' to false in about:config

1. Thus type in your browser the next url: about:config 2. Click the button: 'I'll be carefull, I promise!' 3. type in the new searchbar: 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' 4. double click on the preference to set it to false. 5. close the tab in Firefox 6. close (all instances of) Firefox 7. start Firefox 8. happy surfing :)

Enjoy

I have the latest version of flash player installed and enabled. When I go to Adobe's test page, it recognizes the install and lists the correct version number, but the test animation at the top of the page fails to load properly. Also, the applications handler in Firefox's 'options' menu fails to list any flash compatible file types. On YouTube, I'm met with the video throbber stuck, unmoving, against a black rectangle. Right clicking the video and trying to view the 'settings' dialog does nothing.

I have tried deleting 'pluginreg.dat' and a number of other solutions I've found online, but nothing has made a difference. My other plugins (java, acrobat, etc.) all work fine. Thanks, in advance, for any help.

I too have been having persistent, on going, problems with FP crashing or just stop working. I've done everything everybody has suggested with the exception of disabling the protected mode. What is strange, perhaps not strange, is that when FP crashes if I reinstall FP everything works until I shut down the computer and restart and then it crashes again. Also, in YouTube, if FP is working all the videos will default to FP and not HTML, even though, HTML is enabled and working. If I disable FP, then all the videos play in HTML. As of right now I've disabled FP and use Chrome to view FP required displays. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks

FF is still not handling the "new" classic maps correctly, while Chrome does. I don't use Chrome much, so this has become a problem. I always have to replace the "maps." with "www." to get the map on FF to be fully functional. Unfortunately, most sites still use the old URL with the "maps." I just tried Google Calendar with Chrome as a test. I have a calendar entry with a location, and tried opening it with FF. It displayed the map for this URL: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=27 ... ssic&dg=oo but you can't do anything (zoom, street view, etc.) with the map. I tried the same on Chrome, and it launched a tab with the exact same URL, but it works fine. Again, if I change that URL in FF to have the "www." prefix, it works fine. I've tried this on both Win 8.1 and Linux Mint 17, and the problem is still happening.
