This happened after Firefox updated to v73. When I go into a 123 Flash chat room (chat-avenue.com), the screen will frequently white out; the entire screen goes white. Sometimes it will come back to normal after a few seconds; other times I need to close/open or switch tabs, and other times, the Flash tab will crash back to the main (non Flash) page of that site . v72 and earlier didn't have this problem. Other tabs are not affected.

If there isn't a way to go back to v.72 is there any workaround until this gets fixed? Thanks.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

This is a problem native to Windows 10, Creator's update. Other versions of Windows won't have the problem.

The good news is that there's a workaround. Right-click on the Firefox icon on your desktop and choose "Properties" and then the "Compatibility" tab. Under the "Compatibiility mode" setting, check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and choose "Windows 8." Then click on "Apply" and close the window.

The first time you run Firefox after that, you may get an error message. Close out the error message and open Firefox again, and it should launch. There should be no more white-screen on 123 Flash.

It came back as soon as I closed and reopened Firefox. You can close this thread. I give up on it.

This works and worked through closing and reopening the browser and after rebooting the computer as well.

Much appreciated.

I disagree this is a 'Windows Problem'. If that were true, why then am I able to use flash games in MS Edge without issue? Seems it is more a compatibility issue between Firefox and Flash.
