Flash crashes on Firefox 30.0

It is the last combination that crashes on my system (Vista). I've disabled the RealPlayer and the latest GPU drivers. Some suggested fixes involve to disable protected mode. Is this not like solving the problem of a belt tightened by removing it?


Here is the answer given by jscher2000 in the thread you mentioned, Adobe flash 14 (latest version) crashes every time in Firefox 30.0

It is a standard orientation that addresses the most common reasons for problems of Flash in Firefox. I'm sure you've seen some of it before, but just in case:

(1) make sure that all recorders/downloaders who interact with the Flash media are as up-to-date as possible, or turn them off.

(2) disable graphics hardware acceleration in Flash

See this article from Adobe technical support: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues

(3) turn off protected mode (Windows Vista/7/8)

The following/posts pages provide different ways to do this:

Flash must unload completely from memory (Firefox restart might help) before it would take effect.

Note the links under (3) disable the protected mode (Windows Vista/7/8) refer to disable the safe_mode in FLASH, which applies to Windows Vista and above. You can also visit http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Flash_Protected_Mode_issues_on_Windows_Vista_and_above for more information.

    Create a new profile as a test to see if your profile is the source of the problems.

    See "basic troubleshooting: a new profile:

    There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "tools > Modules > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.

    If this new profile works then you can transfer files from the old profile to the new profile, but make sure not to copy corrupted files.

  • Test the movie Flash Player not working not not in Firefox

    Flash demos at the following link do not work for me on Firefox, but work fine in Chrome and Safari: Adobe - Flash Player

    I also got an error on Tumblr that Flash has not been installed. I tried in safe mode, when 33.02 was later that it is an old problem, & also tested with the latest version 34.0.5.

    This screenshot shows what I see on the page of the Adobe Flash - just this dark, red color fill test no animation: http://oi61.tinypic.com/2r5ten6.jpg

    (Same exact image/animation with Flash

    Chrome/Safari, I see this in an animation: http://oi62.tinypic.com/2qdsm13.jpg

    I tried to uninstall Flash using these instructions, rebooted, reinstalled and no change:


    Safari and Firefox share the same Flash Player, so something is happening with Firefox.  Are you running any plugins of ad-blocking or anti-suivis?

    You could try Firefox > help > restart with disabled modules.

    If this does not work, you might just try to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.

  • Flash Crash on Firefox.

    Whenever I visit a page that contains any objects Flash, Firefox responds more briefly and then a pop of dialogue to say that Shockwave Flash fell down. I tried all the fixes I found on other issues: I reset Firefox, run it in Safe Mode, disabled all extensions, reinstalled Firefox and Flash, downgraded Firefox and Flash and turn off "protection Mode" of Flash, etc. The problem seems to only saw the day after I've upgraded to Firefox 20 yesterday if it's of any help. Flash also crashes on IE and does not work on Chrome (YouTube does not play sound for example). I am running out of ideas and I was wondering if someone has something that I could try. Thanks in advance for answers!

    Thanks for the reply, I had already tried all the methods on this page, I just did a system restore in the end, the problem is now solved

  • Flash Player Plugin constantly crashing in Firefox

    Flash Player Crash in Firefox.jpgHello

    I had problems with the adobe plugin to crash constantly in Firefox, especially when I'm looking at my email and the side bar with pop-up ads. Also had problems in Firefox and Internet Explorer with the audio in YouTube was very low for a few days. This problem with the audio I was able to fix by following one of your messages formula 2012:

    Go to start-> Control panel-> Flash-> Advanced Player

    I deleted all of the "data and Site settings.

    I have the most recent Flash version.

    I have Windows 7, 64-bit, but when I go into my control panel of the Flash Player contains 32 bits. Why is this? This could be what is causing problems.

    I would appreciate your response.

    Thank you


    Hi Jean-Luc.

    Thank you for your response. I use Real Player Downloader to download videos. It is very easy to use, so I want to keep it. I still think that there is something to do with the Flash Player and Firefox. I guess that I just have to fix the problem. Only the side bar where advertising crashes as I've shown in the picture above.

    Low sound on YouTube videos has been me bothering a lot because I watch many short videos posted on Facebook on dogs and could not hear them at all. I've never seen the slider in the volume on these videos only the cursor for on / Mute. The problem was solved by removing all the 'data and Site Settings ".

    Thanks for all your help,


  • Flash crashes in Firefox, works in Internet Explorer

    Aloha! I really hope someone can help me.

    Here is my info: PC, Windows 8.1 64 bit running updated Firefox. All plugins are activated/still activate. Never, never had a problem before with Flash.

    Problem: A week earlier, Flash has started crashing. There is a yellow banner at the top saying that Flash broke down with the option to send a report.  There 2 new modules in my Firefox Manager - Intel Identity Protection Technology - not sure what they are for. Deactivation makes no difference. I also picked up a virus that last week, after that Flash started crashing. I managed to get rid of it using Malwarebytes and Adware cleaner.

    Right now, when I click to play a video, area of the screen becomes a gray white color and I get a message that I need to upgrade Flash to the new drive. When I do (yet), everything seems to go OK and install, but I always get the same thing when I try to play a video... gray box and the upgrade notice.

    What I did: uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled Shockwave Flash Result is the same when using Firefox-it crashes. Shockwave Flash is set to "always enable" on the Add-ons Manager. I have also reset Firefox when get rid of the popup virus.

    However, I had to work on IExplorer, so it makes me wonder if there is a problem with Firefox.

    Can someone help, please?

    No, not really.  I'm looking at him with pragmatism:

    • There was a sort of malware infection
    • Your AntiVirus/AntiMalware packets captured at least a part of it and tried to remove it
    • Now, the browser does not work well

    For Firefox, one of the things we have done in the implementation of Protected Mode was to ensure that other software could not be inserted between Flash and the Firefox process in order to intercept the communication.  When something don't try to do, we just bail out, and you end up with a death of Flash Player.  There could be other possible root causes, but what you are experiencing is not common or widespread.  Nationwide distribution of Flash Player, something with a failure of 0.01% rate touch 100 k people, everything always happens like this share all alarms.  I'm pretty confident that it is a unique problem created by something outside the operation expected of the plugin, browser and OS.

    Short of a vast judicial inquiry in the current state of your machine, it is difficult to say what is happening beyond 'it doesn't look good. "  Given data points that I have, I think you would be well served by adopting a cautious approach, and to return to an audited statement will be most likely repair, or at the very least, make troubleshooting much easier.

  • Flash player not working not properly on firefox for windows 10 installation

    I recently installed 10 windows on my PC and just discovered that I can't watch anything on firefox with the flash player plugin, it does not crash but instead of a video, the screen is just green but it is solid, and when he tries with other browsers, it works fine. I have attached an image in order to highlight this...

    The green screen is an old problem with the Flash plugin. To work around the problem, you can disable the plugin to use hardware acceleration:

    On a site with Flash, right-click the media and select settings, then the first mini tab and uncheck the box to use hardware acceleration.

    More information in this article from Adobe technical support: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues

    Is what helps in Windows 10?

    Moreover, the details of your Question > System Details more shows two versions of Flash and the 18.x 15.x. To locate and remove the old version, you can type or paste topic: plugins in the address bar, and then use search (Ctrl + f) to search for NPSWF and find the physical location of the old file of the DLL. Usually, it is safe to remove, but if you're nervous, renaming with a. Extension of OLD must hide from Firefox.
