Please don't tell me the bug is "impossible to fix" and pass the buck to Adobe. I engineer software myself and such a reply is far from acceptable. Sure, I've no doubt Adobe is culpable too, but I don't have time to write everyone an e-mail, especially if they couldn't give a damn.

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 don't know english good, sorry), I have a strange trouble with html5. It's started yesterday evening, after update 10.04.2015, I'm using FF Dev. Edition (aurora). Videos in html5 with H.264/mp4 showing as black retangle (example in attached). I trying own page with html5. It's not working too, but "Your browser does not support H.264/MP4." didn't written, just black rectangle. I'm trying ogg, and it's work. Before the update all worked fine, I have watched video in html5 only. Whats I doing wrong or it's bug from the last update? In FireFox (not aurora, not beta), I can watching html5 fine, all my codecs installed on PC. Thanks.

UPD1 : Patch 39.0a2 (2015-04-11), problem is actual yet.

hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04, firefox 25 on a older machine with socket A CPU. It does not support SSE2, thus Flash 11.2 is not an option. I installed 11.1.r102, but Firefox won't let me used it because it detects it's an old version. Chromium works fine though.

So how do I force Firefox to use the version of flash I want it to use??

Upgrade from 63 to 64, no extensions/addons or security apps present. Flash enabled to make the login page available. After inputing username/password and selecting domain, hitting enter or pressing Login does nothing. Our only solution at the moment is to downgrade to 63 and disable automatic updating.

Anytime I want to view a video from within Firefox (YouTube or other) I am not able to view it. With YouTube I get the message "Error occurred. Please try again later." Other videos just give a blank page. I checked my plugins, they are all up to date. I am using Firefox version 13.0.1. I don't have this problem when I use other browsers such as IE. Any help would be appreciated.

I can't get cbsnews.com videos to play. No errors, just a blank black screen. Their Help tells me to install Adobe Flash Player. (I had Shockwave Player installed and thought that was the same thing - wrong!) I installed the NPAPI version of Flash Player with no problems, but the videos still don't work. The Add-ons manager doesn't show the Flash Player as installed, but if I click on "check if plug-ins up-to-date" it shows Flash Player installed and up-to-date. What am I missing here? Thanks.

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

Does anyone else have their Flash Plug-in NOT auto-update? I've been watching the last few Flash Updates from Adobe for a while and for me, they do not Auto-Update. I had to manually install version 32.0.0.171. I've manually installed the Adobe Shockwave Flash for years, but only recently waited to see if it would Auto-Update.

I noticed with the two other Plug-ins, they have Update buttons for Default / On / Off. The Flash Plug-in does not have these buttons. Is this why it does not / will not Auto-Update?

Anyway, I received an eMail today about the Latest Flash Update:

At first, the same night I decided to update--things were fine but after using the browser hours later a second time: some flash scripts would simply not respond and freeze the tab the content is on or like in my question, constantly stutter. The problem for flash videos only seem to occur when I scroll onto links or when moving up/down a page. I encountered similar problem with FF7--like that time, I installed/uninstalled the flash player and even resetted firefox but to no avail--the problem persisted. It is also present while in safe mode. P.s. such problem is seemingly not present in other browsers which brought me to ask this question for assistance.

I can open my inbox and answer requests but I have to use chrome to play, but I would prefer to use Firefox.Also I was asked to take a Firefox survey but when I was done and hit submit...it wouldn't submit....another survey today asked if I was happy with Firefox, when I said no, it didn't even ask why (I was hoping to contact someone to fix the problems with zynga), just closed the survey.  ???? I have tried to find a contact us button, but just keep getting redirected to other places. I hope someone can help me with this problem

I just refreshed and nothing has changed so far.

Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

It doesnt matter what site or what I am doing it will come up randomly and freeze firefox then finally a box pops up and says Flash is busy or not responding continue or stop plugin. Naturally I stop plugin. I always install the latest flash versions I have even uninstall and reinstalled flash and downgraded and still no change or it bugs me to update. I am using firefox 26.0 I usually stay away from the betas if all possible. My biggest worry with using the reset firefox or making a new profile is my fast dial I have tons of sites right there waiting for me to click on and im afraid if I do all this I will lose it. But I have used same profile for years and years so maybe its time. I will just have to redo my fast dial I guess Unless someone can come up with another way to do it. I have disabled hardware acceleration on firefox I have to it makes my browser do some weird things. I also have disabled Hardware acceleration in flash as well. I have cleant temp files and registry. I am good with computers but have never seen issues like this with flash. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks.

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.

Last night I could no longer play Bejeweled Blitz, Solitaire Blitz, or other Adobe Flash player based games on Facebook using Firefox. The games load but do not respond correctly. I have to click twice on the page to get the view to update. However, these games work correctly in Internet Explorer. This started for me on the night of October 19. I tried four different Flash games tonight, some from different developers, and none of them worked correctly. I tested a Flash game on a site outside of Facebook, and it worked fine.
