Videos on Twitter don't play, "The message This browser does not support video playback." appears on the center of a screenshot of the video. Twitter Videos play normally on Chrome. YouTube videos play normally on Firefox.

I have the latest version of Firefox and all the plugins are up to date (Java, Flash Player etc). I have experimented changing Hardware Acceleration Where Available box, the media.windows-media-foundation.enabled attribute, clearing the caches, opening in safe mode, nothing makes the videos play.


Is there anyone who has had the same problem and managed to solve it. Thank you.

I normally have Adobe Flash in "ask to activate" status. When I want to see if I have the latest ve3rsion, I go to Add-ons Manager and change the setting to "Always activate". Then I go to https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html to check if I have the latest version. Then I go back and reset to ":Ask to activate".

Recently, when I go to that Adobe page and click "Check", I get an error message "Sorry, Flash Player is either not installed or not enabled.." How do I get Flash enabled? I had this happen with Flash 26.0.0.151, and I recently upgraded to 27.0.0.130, and after the update the same error message appears. I am running Firefox 55.0.3 32-bit on Windows 7 Professional.

In the past, when I had "Ask to activate", the Adobe help/check page did not ask me to activate; I had to re-set the activate flag to get the help/check page to work. Is there something that FF has saved somewhere that tells FF never to activate Flash on the Adobe help/check web page?

Thanks.

I have spent literally hundreds of hours over the past year and a half or so trying to figure out why Firefox and Adobe FlashPlayer cannot coexist peacefully. The latest issue that I have found has to do with Firefox refusing or unable to use the "sandbox" technology that every other browser apparently uses. I occasionally use Google's Chrome browser and have begun exploring Microsoft's new Edge since I updated my OS to Win10 about a week ago. Neither platform has any problem whatsoever with Adobe FlashPlayer content. I have been a very dedicated and contented FireFox user for at least the past five years except for this problem which has become unendurable since my Win10 “upgrade.” With Win8.1, I completely booted all traces of Adobe FlashPlayer off my computer and simply ignored content that depended on it. This does not seem to work since my “upgrade.” Now, every single site I access that has any Adobe Flash dependent content in it brings my entire FireFox browser to a screeching halt for approximately a minute. I frequently end up using the old three finger salute to end the grid block that has become standard operating procedure with my current use of FireFox. I am brought to a point where I have to consider abandoning FireFox completely until this “disconnect” is at last addressed and permanently resolved by Mozilla FireFox. I have tried all the "safe mode" fixes. I have updated every updateable parameter imaginable. I appeal to anyone in the community who has a workable fix for this problem as a last resort before I move my online activities to another browser. I will respond quickly to anyone who offers help and needs me to try something to fix this. Thank you for any assistance with this longtime problem.

The August 26th security update has completely screwed me over, I am constantly getting adobe and shockwave crashes now because of this, how do I fix?

I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe. This has only started happening since that update. I watched Firefox update at the time and I have had issues ever since. Most websites I go to now that have videos are now unwatchable because it constantly crashes 24/7.

What do I do to fix this? Do I just stop using firefox completely? Because that's what I am considering doing. How dumb is it for 1 update to completely screw me over? I have disabled all Addons as well and it's still the same problem.

I noticed it may have something to do with the ads, because I opened my email to read email from support.mozilla.org and it crashed. Then the window was restored and I was able to read it.

The browser was reinstalled and refreshed. I have no add-ons and no extensions. But I have plugins. I disabled some and changed the rest to ask to activate.

I have an HP Pavilion computer updated to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and plenty of available bandwidth from Comcast. My problem occurs when using the Xfinity TV application with the Mozilla Firefox browser (Version. 49.0.1). This application gives me access on my desktop and laptop computers and Galaxy Note 5 to all of the Xfinity X1 platform content including live TV channels to which I subscribe to from Comcast when I am viewing them while at home. This content is accessed through the Live TV function contained in the Xfinity TV application. Hence, when using this application, I can watch one channel on a TV and a second on my computer. While this application is fully functional with Chrome and Microsoft Edge is does not work well with Mozilla Firefox. The problem occurs when I try to use the Xfinity TV application to watch a live broadcast of a TV program being broadcast in high definition using my computer and HP HD 25 inch monitor. When watching the high definition broadcast the picture is jumpy (flickers) and the audio is garbled, choppy and not understandable. These problems do not occur when a standard definition broadcast of a live TV program is being watched using the Mozilla Firefox browser. Xfinity TV application works properly with Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers. Is there a setting in Firefox or other fix for this problem.

I recently downloaded Firefox on a PC, it was my default browser and everything was running fine. I added extensions including Ghostery and Add Block Plus which work fine on my other browsers and I think on Firefox for a while. Now I can't get the video to work on popular websites (e.g. the Weather Channel) even if I disable Ghostery and Add Block Plus which I don't think are the problem anyway. So I messed up something. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I was suddenly getting prompts to update Flash Player. This hadn't happened in months, so I hadn't updated Flash Player in a good while. The first time, I ignored the warning prompt and activated Flash anyway and played the video. This was from tcm.com (Turner Classic Movies). The second time, I decided I'd better update Flash Player, and did so. But now the video wouldn't play at all. There was a locked box icon. I searched on various fixes, looked at a few Mozilla support pages, did a plug-in change starting from the sandwich icon at upper right, same thing. Found another fix idea. Went into the C drive, navigated eventually in Windows to the Macromed and Flash folders, and deleted NPSWF32_9_0_0_169.dll. The red locked box went away. A video played. Next time out, though, back to nothing. In IE, the link will play.

I don't know if I am the only one but recently Twitch TV (https://www.twitch.tv/) stopped working on Firefox with windows 10. Page loads just fine but when trying to watch any live stream or past broadcast from anyone the video player just sits there with giant play button (attached picture). When i click on it nothing happens. On other sites like Youtube everything is just fine, it's just twitch. I did fresh Win install and only installed network drivers and tried to watch stream but the problem is still there. This also happens on my work laptop that also has Win 10 installed, but on my brother's PC, that is running Win 7, twitch works just fine.

Not sure if the issue is with Twitch, Win 10 or FF 46.0.1 but on previous versions of FF, twitch worked ok?

Hi,

Happens on YT, FB, Twitter ...

Things I have tried 1. switching from FF 32bit to 64bit 2. disabling HW acceleration 3. updating video drivers 4. safe mode (crash still happens)

Used to work fine and seems to have happened after latest update to FF. though I suspect it is not solely a result of this since I have another PC which is working fine. Since this happens on my work laptop, which is in a semi controlled configuration, the 'well ... check the differences' is not a useful approach since there are way too many of them and I do not have the luxury of going one by one, disabling/unintsalling and seeing if the problem goes away

any help is appreciated.

Nothing seems to work. An appropriate plugin seems to be installed and, after downloading the latest version from Adobe, a retry informed me that Flash was already installed. Firefox does not agree. The download from Adobe informs me that upgrading is a 3-stage process but takes me no further than stage 1. This used to be a doddle under XP. You just found and ran the executable file in the Download folder. I can find no executable files in my Download folder. My current Linux version is 18.3 Sylvia. I am sure that this used to be handled automatically by Firefox updates in previous Mint versions. Now, however, it doesn't seem to matter what I try - whether using the Mint's Software function or going onto Adobe's download page. I always seem to finish up in the same place with the computer just looking at me and declaring that Flash is already installed. The Firefox Addons list includes Flash but nothing I do will get it working.
