hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

I enjoy playing Flash based browser games but they've been running slow recently. I opened my computer's task manager to see what was going on and noticed that as I kept playing, the amount of RAM being used by Flash kept going up. All the way to 1.5 GB of RAM. I think that flash is saving pieces of game data that are not necessary. Anyone know how to make it stop doing that?

I can't get cbsnews.com videos to play. No errors, just a blank black screen. Their Help tells me to install Adobe Flash Player.

The Add-ons manager doesn't show the Flash Player as installed, but if I click on "check if plug-ins up-to-date" it shows Flash Player installed and up-to-date. What am I missing here? Thanks.

I play Flash games on Kongregate every now and then, but - for whatever reason - Firefox 64 blocks them from saving.

They load OK but something (which must be a new setting that Firefox 64 added) is blocking them from saving new data, both automatically and when I manually click 'save' on games with this option. Nothing is writing to the Appdata folder where the game data is stored (stored as .sol files).

Never had the problem before, and everything works again if I revert to 63.0.3. Any ideas what could be causing it?

Many thanks in advance.

My company is using Firefox for a photo ID capture application that is home-built. It utilizes a webcam and Flash to view and take the photos right in the web app.

I have several old computers setup for this that are outdated, however I cannot replace them as I cannot get a new image configured to work correctly.

On the old computers I need to select the "allow" option for the addon only once, then can take as many photos as needed.

On the new image, I am unable to select a "remember" option and have to click allow for every new ID photo that I take.

When processing upwards of a thousand new photos in a day, this is quite irritating.

The old computers are fully updated (both with Firefox and flash) and I cant find any difference in the settings that would make this change.

On the old one, I can do one of two things. 1) Click the addon "brick" in the address bar and select "Remember this decision" checkbox, then click allow. or 2) right click in the flash frame, and go to options and again check a box to always allow for the site.

Neither of these options are appearing for me on the new install.

for the addon "brick" in the address bar, the banner pops down, but is absent the "Remember this decision" checkbox.

If I right click in the flash frame, my options are extremely truncated.

Is there a setting to re-allow/show the "remember this decision" checkbox??

Please help!!!

I need to run Adobe Connect. It doesn't seem to work in Firefox, probably (I think) because of sandboxing. Rather than disabling sandboxing in general, I'd rather use the Connect desktop app. But, before I knew of this problem, I ticked the "always allow" box when the Connect website wanted to run Flash. Now, I need that website to be disallowed from running Flash, because then it sends me to the desktop app when I click the meeting link on the conference host's website. I can achieve this by going to my add-ons preferences and disabling Flash on all websites before the conference, then re-enabling it afterwards. But I'd rather just remove the Connect website from the list of "always allow" sites for Flash. How can I do this?

hi all

Pretty straight forward (I hope):

Currently using Firefox 31.0 on windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just realised that I've got about 20 sets of pending crash reports (.dmp and .extra) located here:

...AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports\pending

Date-range is Feb to Aug 2014, so presumably applies to approx firefox versions 29-31.

Is there a way to force / request submission of these reports?

I have no particular desire to delete them - they don't take up much HD space.

However, there's no point in keeping them if I can't trigger a submission process.

Also, I would like to contribute to bug-resolution by proving the reports.

Btw, I think they are probably mostly Flash related.

This is not just a whinge. The Flash plugin seems to fall over quite frequently (for me anyway) - certainly appears the only one I can rely on to misbehave! I checked the top plugin crash submissions too for the last 28 days on mozilla's crash-stats (filtering on FF 31 and windows)... and... the top 3 entries, which account for 55% of all plugin crashes, appear all to be flash related lol (gJ adobe) ;)

Anyway, if anyone can tell me how to submit these pending reports, I'd be grateful.


Regards,

Gary

PS I noticed, when providing FF's troubleshooting info for this post, that I got a crash report submission (automatically) about 15 mins ago... and one pair of files has disappeared from my Pending folder.

Do I just have to be patient then? I use FF a lot, so don't really understand what circumstances trigger the report submission (i.e. it's not a question of just having FF open / active).

Thanks again for any assistance rendered.

A lot of people have this problem, so did i.

It only happened if i was logged on as an user (on multiple computers), thus the administrator user account didn't had any problems.

After multiple months of frustration and browsing the internet for a solution i was at the point of try to change each setting in Firefox and see if it would work, if not set it back. Luckily my first educated guess was the correct one! :)

What worked for me was to set the 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' to false in about:config

1. Thus type in your browser the next url: about:config 2. Click the button: 'I'll be carefull, I promise!' 3. type in the new searchbar: 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' 4. double click on the preference to set it to false. 5. close the tab in Firefox 6. close (all instances of) Firefox 7. start Firefox 8. happy surfing :)

Enjoy

Last night I could no longer play Bejeweled Blitz, Solitaire Blitz, or other Adobe Flash player based games on Facebook using Firefox. The games load but do not respond correctly. I have to click twice on the page to get the view to update. However, these games work correctly in Internet Explorer. This started for me on the night of October 19. I tried four different Flash games tonight, some from different developers, and none of them worked correctly. I tested a Flash game on a site outside of Facebook, and it worked fine.
