hi,

Has anyone else been having issues with flash crashing very often with Icewasel? I am using iceweasel 10.0.7 and have flash 11.2 r202. I am using AMD 64-bit. It started maybe a few weeks ago. When ever I try to watch a flash video flash will crash on me and I always have to hit refresh. Sometimes I have to refresh a few times for the video to start playing for me. Is there anything I could try to fix this or is it a bug in flash?

Thanks.

I installed chromium and it will crash using that also.

I noticed this on a windows machine. There appears to be a problem with flash 11 and 'firefox' . . . as far as I can see it has't been resolved yet.

Do you know if adobe will fix this issue or have they stopped all development on the linux version of flash including bug fixes?

Adobe and Mozilla were 'working together' mid-June but haven't heard anything since.

I use nightly and don't see this problem in 64-bit, 32-bit (gaming, cause 64 sucks for gaming) and windows 7 32-bit (work)

      Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0 - Build ID: 20120907030554


The last time I used version 10.0.2 was 7 months ago 17-Feb-2012 06:15

No matter what version of linux, windows, I use nightly and never had a problem. I dropped iceweasel completely sometime last year (always used to compare the way nightly and iceweasel behaved).

I figured if I am in a bleeding edge (debian sid) distro I might as well use a bleeding edge browser (firefox-nightly) and doing so has no complaints what-so-ever from me and am very pleased with it.

Just my point of veiw

The most noticeable issue in the UK is the BBC iPlayer fails to initialise.

Last night I downloaded the 64-bit firefox nightly and flash still crashes on me. I renamed my .mozilla folder so it would create a new profile but it did not help.

I am not sure why it still happens for me.

One of the fixes (I believe it was on mozilla's site) was to go back to flashplayer 10 although I have no idea if there are security implications with that. It worked here . . . .

You could try deleting the .mozilla folder again and in konsole doing
      Code:
ln -s /tmp ~/.macromedia
and then restarting firefox

Can you post some sites that are giving you problems ?

I have tried your suggestions but am having the same issue. The only site I can think of right now is a site I visit the most and have the most issues is www.twitch.tv

I have tried youtube and it seems to be fine on that site.

No need to use nightly builds or compare with Windows, or - even worse - downgrade Flash-Plugin. This site works fine with latest Chomium & Flash-Plugin. You issue looks like a graphics card/driver problem.
Greetings,
Chris

I thought it was a graphics driver issue also so I switched from the nouveau driver to the nvidia driver a couple days ago but the issue remains for me.

Btw, I have an nvidia geforce 7800 gtx.

I will see if downgrading resolves this.

I have no problems watching that video on the site that you posted, I was thinking add-ons, but you did delete the mozilla folder.

I am stumped.

It seems to be crashing less now that I am using the nvidia driver. But now that I am using this driver things seem to run slower. Some things seem to lag more. I have turned off desktop effects. Maybe my video card is just a little slow or it could just be me thinking that. Thanks for all the help.
