Thread: Flash player crashes in Firefox

    Default Flash player crashes in Firefox

    My Flash player in Firefox crashes immediately every time it's needed.

    I am running OpenSuse 13.2 on Gnome 3.14.2 with Firefox 36.0.4.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Cheers
    Harvey

    did you install browser plugin for that not only the adobe-flash but also adobe-flashplugin, for chromium it is adobe-flashpepper . and if you have also browser plugin it may be case of codecs so better check that codecs

    what's your install?

    flash-player-11.2.202.442-1.2.i586
    +
    flash-player-kde4-11.2.202.442-1.2.i586

    or

    flash-plugin-11.2.202.451-release.i386

    they don't mix!

    32 bit Firefox ,or the 64 in the mozilla ftp page ?

    32 bit plugins or the 64 bit ones ?



    i use the 64 bit Firefox from here
    https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla....leases/latest/

    and the 64 bit plugins linked from /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
    to the $firefox_INSTALL_location/Firefox/browser/plugins

    now the flash "11.2.202.442" plugin
    (firefox/browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so -- from "aboutlugins")

    works fine
    now some sites are using the newer MICROSOFT ONLY!!! flash

    for that
    use Google chromium and pepper flash

    Thanks for the replies!
    I have Adobe Flash-player 11.2.202.451-2.45.1 (and flash-player-gnome 11.2.202.451-2.45.1 for the settings)
    The flash player crashes immediately on opening any Firefox video/audio link.

    One further bit of info that may relevant/helpful:

    it seems that it will work, iff the freshplayerplugin 0.2.3.3.1 (from the packman repository)is also installed. (I can't say I understand the connection, but that seems to be the way it is!)
