Installed Firefox 13 yesterday. Now flash doesn't work. Have done all the supposed fixes to no avail. Have uninstalled and reinstalled flash. I'm at my wits end with this issue. I'm a web designer who uses flash in a number of my sites. VERY IRRITATING when my sites don't display properly. Anyone have a solution other than the pat Mozilla "fixes"?

Apparently I need to downgrade from flashplayer 11.3 to 11.2 to solve this problem, thereby losing the security updates in 11.3. I don't want to do this.

Does anyone know approximately when a flashplayer update that fixes this problem will be available? I've waited already several months for a fix.

Firefox: 16.0.1 Flash player: 11.4

- Running in safemode - Latest video drivers

When on a youtube video, I can move the mouse around the buttons and it will take about 3 seconds for the mouse to travel between the buttons. The same happens on the BBC News website.

All other flash videos seem to function correctly.

Watching youtube/BBC news in IE works fine. Currently, FF is unusable for these websites.

This also happens in safe mode.

Before an administrator responds, please read, as I have noticed that many times concerning this issue, in other threads, the admins will respond like cartoon characters, not really listening to what people are saying. I have no extensions or add-ons in Firefox (latest version), Chrome (latest version), and Internet Explorer. When I have a blank page open, and only one page, Chrome is using 52M of RAM, IE is using 47M, and Firefox is using 153M. It is a freshly-reinstalled copy, I have no preferences at all, no bookmarks, nothing. Can anyone explain why Firefox is required to use three times as much memory as the other two competitors?

It doesnt matter what site or what I am doing it will come up randomly and freeze firefox then finally a box pops up and says Flash is busy or not responding continue or stop plugin. Naturally I stop plugin. I always install the latest flash versions I have even uninstall and reinstalled flash and downgraded and still no change or it bugs me to update. I am using firefox 26.0 I usually stay away from the betas if all possible. My biggest worry with using the reset firefox or making a new profile is my fast dial I have tons of sites right there waiting for me to click on and im afraid if I do all this I will lose it. But I have used same profile for years and years so maybe its time. I will just have to redo my fast dial I guess Unless someone can come up with another way to do it. I have disabled hardware acceleration on firefox I have to it makes my browser do some weird things. I also have disabled Hardware acceleration in flash as well. I have cleant temp files and registry. I am good with computers but have never seen issues like this with flash. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks.

Please don't tell me the bug is "impossible to fix" and pass the buck to Adobe. I engineer software myself and such a reply is far from acceptable. Sure, I've no doubt Adobe is culpable too, but I don't have time to write everyone an e-mail, especially if they couldn't give a damn.

I have windows7, security essential and all other is ok in my laptop. I keep everything up to date. Now the only problem is when I try to check it out is plug ins up to date, all other plug ins are but Adobe flash is not. It indicates vulnerable in red colour. When I proceed update now, installation goes ok but if after I recheck if all plug ins are up to date, there is AGAIN that red sign: "vulnerable". I'm near to change my browser to an other one if this annoying problem seems not to be fixed.

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

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?
