Flash operation in Firefox

Recommended Posts

I am finding that if I open a page in Firefox that contains a flash video that if I click on the video then Firefox drops out (crashes or call it what you will). Reopening Firefox and selecting restore opened pages and then clicking on the same flash video it plays AOK with no problems.

It started occurring after a Firefox update but I cannot remember if it started with the latest update or one earlier and has continued through.

 

Has anyone else encountered this ???. I seem to vaguely remember seeing posts some where about Flash videos causing Firefox dropouts.

 

Cheers. John.

Yep, same Q as Gul Dukat. I've had various Firefox crashes with flash in the past, but currently FF 3.0 beta 5 and flashplugin 9.0.124 are working just great together.

I found the answer was to install two flash rpms that I had downloaded ages ago, and had been using in 2007.1 and 2008-Free.

 

The two are ............FlashPlayer-9.0.31.0-1mde2007.0.i586.rpm

 

................................flashplayer9_install_i385_100107.rpm

 

Seems like software gets worse instead of better as time goes on. :D

 

Cheers. John.

Flash has always been _terrible_ trouble. Not displaying, crashing... it's been doing it forever.
