Flash hang on youtube with firefox 37+ with volume media key
Every time the player is on focus and you press a key to change the volume on Firefox 37+ this includes the new Firefox 38 as well it makes the plug-in handler to hang alongside with Firefox till you get the option to close it or wait if you keep waiting it will stay frozen till you get the same option again and close it.
This was tested on clean profiles with no add-ons or changed preferences, keyboard or it's drivers have been tested and have nothing to do with the issue, different flash versions were tested and flash was uninstalled and reinstalled using the program adobe provides with it's guide and nothing changes also this issue doesn't happen on firefox 36.0.4 or older versions so it's for sure an Issue with firefox 37+.
OS: Windows 7 x64
I want this to be acknowledge by developers so they can solve it I'm not sure if this is the correct/acceptable place so let me know and please point me to the appropriate place if this is not the one.
See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration
Has nothing to do with that and I've tested to disable hardware acceleration on both flash and firefox before posting and didn't solve anything and my graphic drivers have always been the latest ones.
Like I said before this is not a thread to solve the issue cause it has nothing to do with me is a problem with firefox code and it's interaction with youtube and flash. I want this to be acknowledged by developers so they can solve it I'm not sure if this is the correct/acceptable place so let me know and please point me to the appropriate place if this is not the one.
Installing this add-on fixes the issue for anyone with the same problem that wants a quick fix but im still looking fordward for someone on the dev team to adress this
- FIX *********
Ive been having the same issue for a long time now. Have to end the flash player process in my task manager to regain control.
