Thread: Flash 10.2 is buggy as heck, how downgrade?

  1. #1

    Default Flash 10.2 is buggy as heck, how downgrade?

    I was upgraded to Adobe Flash 10.2 automatically via the updater. But it's been VERY, very buggy whereas 10.1 (or whatever came before it) was very stable. How do I switch back?

    dl and install for your version of openSuse software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    probably also somewhere on the Adobe site
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    since it works very smoothly here (and so far you are the only one to
    complain) why don't you tell us the symptoms of the very buggy bugs..

    and, be sure and log the bug,
    http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports else it won't get fixed..

    Remember that the Flash-Player is a proprietary application, so reporting bugs to the openSUSE-Team most likely will not solve anything. If at all, it should be reported to Adobe.

    6tr6tr is not the only one experiencing bugs with the current version. I occasionally →experience crashes with it, which never happened before - not too much of a big deal, since those crashes will not affect the running Firefox process. It can be solved by simply reloading the page, then it works. Basically I find this version a step forward, as it uses less cpu-power than prior versions.

    I have that impression as well. So far I haven't had the crashes (maybe one, more of a freeze really).

    I should add that I actually had a hard time taking the screenshot in my prior comment, it took me about ten minutes and what felt like 80 clicks to make the Flash-Player crash. Only it never happened before, that's why I mentioned it - anyway, I am mildly satisfied with this version (as satisfied as one can be with the Flash-Player...).

    ok, i've seen several of those....had forgotten!!

    but, back to the OP who wants to downgrade...as far as i remember the
    earlier version would hang my FF up so bad i had to kill it because it
    was strangling the entire desktop..

    at least this flash is not only faster, it uses less cycles, crashes
    less often and instead of holding the browser/desktop up for ransom,
    it just pops up that kinda cute sad face...and usually, instantly is
    ready to try again..

    Flash has always crashed in my system, occasionally. Or I had to kill the
    wrapper (/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer.bin) because it was
    taking a lot of cpu. I have seldom seen that window of your photo.

    I also experience a lot of crashes which usually is not a problem (since firefox can just trap the extension) BUT when it's in full-screen mode, I have to restart the computer via the power button when it crashes! Nothing else works.

    Have you tried killing the X session (CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE)?
