Update your Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.

Flash Player Version: Version 26.0.0.151

Could this be some timing issue where the Flash plugin isn't fully finished loading and thus isn't receiving the input?

Does pressing F6 once or twice has any effect or does Flash processes all keyboard events?

Flash Player has finished loading, I can see focus in/out but not able to type but copy paste works.

I am using latest Flash Player 26.0.0.151, Everything is up to date. Even As I mentioned in my question if I click on address bar or anywhere to focusout from Flash page then try again to input text everything works.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
