Firefox crashes whenever on a page that needs Adobe Flash. If I uninstall then reinstall Flash, it works until I restart my computer, then it happens again

Running latest version of both Firefox (19.0.2) and Adobe Flash (11.6.602.171) as of the date of this post. I'm using Windows 7. This problem has been going on for a few months (maybe even a year). I can't remember the last time this didn't happen. This problem doesn't occur with Google Chrome, and it is getting very irritating.

You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these:

  • disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

None of those solutions worked. I've tried them before, and the same thing happens. Once I restart my computer, any page that uses Adobe Flash will crash it (with Firefox).

I am having the same problem. I use Ubuntu 12.04 and use Flash version 11.2 r202. Since Ubuntu went canonical with 19.02. Firefox has been crashing endlessly. I uninstalled and installed a strip down version only with Flash. It still crashes.

Do anyone have a solution? I disable all acceleration and there is no other plugin running?
