Note: Edge on Win10 does not use ActiveX version but its own Flash. If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. I'm frazzled from working all the other suggestions that didn't work, so it may be a few days before I'm willing to start experimenting again.

Re: Adobe flash player either hangs or crashes in Firefox revmrf Sep 24, 2013 6:07 AM (in response to Stingray99) I've had a similar problem for months. If you want to stick with Firefox 38 until the Flash problems shake out, maybe you'd like to try out a different variant of Firefox called the Extended Support Release (ESR). Have turned off add-ons one by one to check for conflict. weblink I HATE ADS!
Plugins like Flash are NOT disabled in Firefox Safe Mode, but add-on extensions ARE, and so is hardware acceleration. This problem cropped up about 2 months or less ago. Are there issues with FF 48.0.2 and FlashPlayer Version 126.96.36.199 What is plugin-container Use the QuickTime plugin to play audio and video Use the Adobe Reader plugin to view or download Re: Adobe flash player either hangs or crashes in Firefox dabidumda146 Sep 24, 2013 12:36 PM (in response to Stingray99) I have the same problem.
Unfortunately, this makes Firefox so unusable that I've had to switch to another browser for the time being, but it's having it's own issues. I think you said you already switched it off before, so that may not be relevant. If Firefox uses a lot of computer resources, see the solutions proposed in Firefox uses too many CPU resources - How to fix and Firefox uses too much memory (RAM) - I could also turn off "hardware acceleration" but that didn't help.
Steve Jandreau AliceWyman said You could try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. I found a Flash bypass alternative extension in Firefox Add-ons, called "Video WithOut Flash" https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-without-flash/ installed it, and disabled Flash. The Player also doesn't start (All I see is a white rectangle) so I can't choose to deselect Hardware Acceleration. I don't use either, so no problem.
Now I have to reload the page 20 times to get through a 7min video. This can prevent Firefox from working properly the next time you open it or you may see a "Close Firefox" dialog box with an error message, Firefox is already running, but
