Flash plugin does not work in 7.0.1

I recently was prompted to update my Flash player and did so. Afterwards, Flash no longer worked. I get an error message saying "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. No report available." Reloading the page over and over, it never works. Does not work on any website I try with Flash.

OSX 10.7.2 Firefox 7.0.1 Using whatever is the most up to date version of Flash right now (can't figure out the version number).

I tried uninstalling Flash and re-installing, didn't help. Disabled all add-ons, restarting, no go. Tried restarting the entire system, still no go.

Works perfectly fine in Safari.

Looks like tons of people have this issue but nobody has a clue why...

What happens if you try to bypass the plugin container in Firefox for Flash in about:config?

dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.i386.flash player.plugin - try setting to false

Tried that, restarted Firefox, went to Flash site and still get "Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. No report available."

Number of people with this issue is still climbing, seems to be quite the pervasive issue!

Re: Flash plugin does not work in 7.0.1

Even if a suggested solution like "change your about:config settings" works, the real issue is this: it's a bug in Firefox that needs to be fixed. I run a website for my job in which I need to place a Flash slideshow, and even if I learn some arcane trick to get my slideshow to work for me, what about my userbase who used Firefox?

I'm using Firefox 7.0.1 on a Windows 7 system with the latest Flash plugin, currently 11.0.1.152. I am attempting to use slideshows created with Visual Slideshow 1.6. They work using other browsers such as Internet Explorer, but not with Firefox. I hope this bug can be fixed soon. Thanks.

Tried it: no joy.

Even if it did work, it's not a complete solution as it would still require me to clutter up my page with instructions for other Firefox users to do the same thing. The only real solution will be if Firefox programmers figure out a bug fix and fix it.

None of the solutions provided have done anything thus far. Getting Flash to work seems like a pretty big deal, why is this not yet resolved?

Has anyone figured this problem out yet? I've tried all the fixes mentioned here with no luck!
