Flash 19.0 will not update. Adobe flash 22* does download but Firefox won't accept the update. been going on for months now, I am finally taking an active role in this problem. Have been sending crash reports to adobe but no response. I could really use someones much appreciated help with this issue. Firefox is updated to the current version. Had an attack this am, page took over my eBay window and said something to the effect that it was Firefox breaking in for a patch to protect a security breach in Firefox. I closed the program restarted my comp. and ran defender. Thank you in advance for helping me with this!!!

When i try to play videos on Youtube or Vimeo, they won't play if they are 2K (1440p) or 4K (2160p), AND the codec used is AVC/MP4.
The video will play fine on resolutions up to and including 1080p. Selecting a higher resolution, or viewing fullscreen and having it auto-select 2K or 4K, and the video immediately stops playing and never resumes. Selecting 1080p again will continue the video playback.
If the codec is WebM/VP9 however, it plays just fine even at 2K or 4K. For Youtube I can see this is the case by checking the 'stats for nerds' info. For Vimeo this is a guess* but it shows the problem is broader than just Youtube.
For instance, this video won't play at the 2K-setting: https://vimeo.com/163590531
https://www.youtube.com/html5 shows me 7 blue boxes with checkmarks. So everything is supported.
These settings are all enabled in config:
.*Disabling mediasource.mp4 removes resolutions above 1080p from the available options. Disabling hardware acceleration in the browser does not fix the problem. I'm using the latest Firefox, and recent Nvidia drivers. 150 Mbit connection.
I would like to be able to view the 2K and 4K AVC/MP4 videos. Especially on Youtube where new videos appear in this format. If the video becomes popular Youtube will replace it with a WebM/VP9 version, but this can take days, if it happens at all. Meanwhile I'm stuck at 1080p, and having to manually downgrade the setting before I can watch, because Youtube auto-selects 1440p for my machine (2560 x 1600 display). And I want to watch it at 1440p.
What can I do to remedy this that I haven't tried already?
Edit 1: Just tried watching the vimeo video linked above in a VM with Windows 10 and Edge, and it plays just fine at 2K there. I also tried a Windows 7 VM with Firefox, and it won't play at 2K. And I tried a Windows XP VM with an old IE, and even that plays at 2K.
This strengthens my belief it is somehow a Firefox issue.
Edit 2: OK. Now I'm confused. I tried Win 10 + Firefox = works. Win 10 + Chrome = works. Win 7 + Chrome = works. Win 7 + Firefox = doesn't work! Win 7 + Firefox and all add-ons disabled = also doesn't work. All this in VM.
So Win 10 + Firefox in VM works at 2K. Other browsers in Win 10, and Win 7 work at 2K. But Win 7 + Firefox doesn't work at 2K in VM and on my host machine. The VM probably excludes my graphics drivers as the cause.
Is the problem a combination of Windows 7 + Firefox??

OK - I have searched and Googled.
This happens with FF 46 32 bit, 64 bit, portable, on Win 7 32 bit, 64 bit and windows 10. It happen in safe mode. It has all plugins up to date. I t has remove all but needed and non removable add ins - such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, etc. It happens on computers with plenty of RAM (16 GB). Oddly enough, it happens worse with safe mode and plugin container is run-a-way. With normal mode, it appears that plugin container is under control and Firefox itself runs amuck.
So - totally repeatable. Page down in Firefox with one or 50 tabs open - no matter. It will crash. Goes black, or stops responding. Until Firefox closes. NEVER happens with Edge for example.
I have to think it is a Firefox memory leak, but even using Firemin does not help much if at all.
What can be done? I have done my homework!

I used Firefox for over 10 years and was a big fan. I used it on my gaming desktop PC and older laptop. But the last couple of years the minimum but good functions, fast Firefox became slower, more functions but much less easy, efficient to use, HUGE memory load and I mean HUGE compared to any other browser, so many problems with flash, forwarding controls with internet related websites. It gotten so extreme slow compared to the old days. Compare it with Skype, it was godlike 10 years ago now it is pretty much dead. My laptop is a bit older and needs rather a lot of resources to use and load websites. It is not the laptop to blame (enough CPU power and mem) but just an extreme lack of optimization. (which is a common appearance with a lot of development of apps and games, OS's etc). There is now a days enough power in PC's so why optimize? This mindset is killing. (but worth another topic :p)
Anyhow will be looking to another alternative and which Firefox the best, hopefully they will find their way back and I will be waiting for them at the gate ^^
Yes you can use a lot of fine tuning to make Firefox a lil bit better, but it seems you have to repeat the process over and over and I am just done with that after so long. It is not my job but Firefox should take responsibility. Still I hope someone here can give me Enlightenment advice to maybe change my mind or let me see the light to not leave Firefox ^^ (hence this topic)

Have Win7 / Firefox all up to date on a Toshiba
Only one website I have ever visited does this. When I logon to my Eventbrite site, the keyboard behaviour changes. I contacted Eventbrite, they say its not their problem, and to try another Browser. Nope. I'm with Firefox.
When I login to my Eventbrite site, I can't type anything into Notepad, MS Word or Thunderbird. The Fn keys are now Windows 7 keys, not the Toshiba ones. and I can't type anything.
As soon as I close Firefox, the keyboard returns to normal. I can stsart Firefox and visit any website, as normal. When I visit my Eventbrite website, keyboard goes strange again.

Hi, Firefox repetitvely and seemingly randomly crashes. Almost 60 crashes in 1 mth of usage... This is only the "visible part of the iceberg" though, since I've changed just everything, my internet connection, my WiFi key, my GPU, up to my OS and my PC, nothing seem to solve this, even switching browser (sorry) or using older versions of Firefox doesn't help since those also crash as well.
I uploaded my entire about:crashes page -to date- there: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=79134913395586749201 (also a screenshot of the page is attached) The most recent one is: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/1aba5f95-753c-4fea-9857-662e02160625
Weird and worth mentionning, I think, is that the problem seems to sometimes disappear, I've not experienced any problem for almost one month,(after I changed my WiFi key) as you can see on the uploaded page, then it's pretty every 5 minutes - sometimes Firefox can't be even launched again after a crash, and I need to reboot the PC. In a couple occurences, I even encountered BSOD – not sure weather they really have a connection but anyway, so far I've got those only while browsing the Web, as far as I can recall. These are mostly about Memory Management into the Kernel; I also uploaded a list here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=91555958203709593743
I'm just too tired of that now and I really hope a solution can eventually be found. Thanks.

My issue with the download arrow only occurs 3/4 of the time. May be dependent on amount of tabs open (20 max)
Last month, the only issue with mozilla was if I had 10+ tabs open, there would be some artifacts at the top of the window above and on the tabs themselves. This would go away when I minimized mozilla and brought it back up. After a fresh OS install when I got a new SSD about 3 weeks ago, I noticed that along with the tab issue, the animated download arrow would freeze on the last frame of the animation. When I mouse over the bookmarks/buttons around it, the frozen bits disappear but only over the things that have changed (highlighted buttons when moused over etc). In the process of getting a replacement SSD due to a defective first one, I have reinstalled windows about 4-5 times now, each time with this issue. The first time, everything was up to date including windows. Windows refuses to find any updates until about 4 days after a reformat, so currently I am out of date. But since my issue occurred when I was up to date, I assume this is a bug with mozilla itself. The fact that when I was running an older version of mozilla before my first reformat, I didn't have the issue, makes me think this as well. I also noticed today that the animated heart when pressing the like button on tumblr does the same thing, floats up and freezes on the last frame of animation as seen here: http://puu.sh/pyxgx/198461de3b.png
Also, when I open mozilla, or close/open a new tab, there are black lines that are grouped close together near the bottom of my screen for a split second that were not there with my old version. I can live with those, just thought I'd mention them in case they help diagnose my problem.
To test that it IS an issue with the recent mozilla update, is there any way to install an old version of mozilla without the installer finding the new versions online and forcing me to use those?
