FF 17, just about to update to 17.01. Flash 11,5,502,110
I have been experiencing intermittent crashes, three or four, maybe. That is also since 'upgrading' flash recently.

Re: Flash player on FF

SWMBO has been getting regular crashes with flash 11+ and just checked her version of FF -  16.0.02.
Have suggested she allows the update to 17.0.1.
I have FF 17.0.1 with Flash 11.4.402.287 and get some crashes but not very frequently.

Re: Flash player on FF

With Firefox running in Vista, I found a while back (July/August?) that I no longer had any sound when playing video clips. Some forums showed that I was not the only one. The advice was to revert to an earlier version of Flash. After uninstalling the latest Flash and reinstalling Flash 11.0.1.60 all was well again.
Adobe forums recently seem to show that the problem had been acknowledged and has been fixed, so I upgraded Flash to 11.5.502.110. Video clips then refused to play at all.
Once again, uninstalling Flash and reinstalling Flash 11.0.1.60 has cured the problem and I can play video clips (with sound).
I suppose I might try again in another few weeks/months. Meanwhile, I will be sure to refuse all invitations to upgrade Flash!
EDIT: I forgot to mention I am using FF 17.0.1.

Re: Flash player on FF

Just wondering...
Should the version of Flash installed (32 or 64bit) reflect the OS version being used or the browser version?
E.g. If running 32bit IE on a 64 W7 OS.
I think I know the answer but wondered what other people suggest.

Re: Flash player on FF

I'm quite sure it pertains to the OS.

That is what I was thinking.

Re: Flash player on FF

It depends on the browser

However the standard Firefox Browsers for Windows are 32 bit as you say in the question title.
You will therefore need both versions a 64 bit version for Windows IE and a 32bit version for Firefox. In any event separate flash Software is required for the two browsers.
Whilst installing FlashPlayer be aware that the current version is version 11.3 but that some users are finding problems, sometimes this is resolved by installing an older version of Flash Player, either Version 10.3, which is fully secure or Version 11.2 which has more features but is less secure.

Re: Flash player on FF

I haven't noticed any issues in Firefox 17.0.1 with Flash 11.5.502.135 (why does Flash STILL not silently auto-update in the background), but I'm using an nVidia card. I do have the "click to play" option set though, so I may not be seeing as much Flash content as some of you. What I have seen has worked without issue.
Going back a few months there were almost constant Firefox freezing issues and I had to disable GPU hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin and in Firefox itself.
