Problems with latest Adobe Flash Update

Postby Reality Check » Fri Dec 07, 2012 7:57 am

Is anyone else getting crashes with the latest update of Adobe Flash Player plugin in Firefox? I am getting this message:

Program Adobe Flash Player Version 11.5 r502 has stopped working.

A friend of mine had problems with the latest Flash in Internet Explorer. Slowed his computer to a crawl. Somehow the upgrade had corrupted the settings, but uninstalling Flash, clearing out everything and reinstalling Flash fixed everything. I don't know if this will help you as I have Firefox and Flash and everything seems fine.

That problem has been occurring for me with the last several releases of Adobe Flash. They purported to fix security holes, so I have kept installing them. I also installed Flashblock. Some pages were trying to run Flash automatically; Flashblock stops that, and I don't get that "crashed" message anymore. I suspect the problem was with what was trying to run more than with Flash itself.

I have auto update enabled. I read some forums and downloaded the unintaller from Adobe and then reinstalled it. That seemed to fix it. This was a post on an Adobe message board about a similar problem someone was having:http://forums.adobe.com/message/4900978

I'm not a Flash fan, not the least because the Apple folks won't bring it on board their products and, for better or worse, I'm a Mac person. I wish someone would come up with a compatible player that doesn't hog so much memory.

I'm getting it with Chrome, too. Quite annoying.

I had oddness as well. Wound up doing a system recovery and subsequently Adobe re-alerted me of the update. No more tribbles.[hidden]And, fer crissakes, will you stop trying to load McAfee onto my system?[/hidden]

Amen on McAfee. it is easy to miss that tiny little check box that they default to checked.

I put in Flashblock because sites like Huff Post would insist on playing a movie somewhere near the bottom of the page, at a minimum slowing things down.

At first remove your flash player and download new version then try install new version.I hope that will be helpful.
