Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.262

»www.free-codecs.com/Adobe_Flash_···load.htm

»www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ says it is only for "Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera (and other plugin-based browsers)". I am confused.

It's because many users, including myself, are having major problems with Flash 11.3 crashing Firefox 13.0 +. Until now my Firefox would freeze constantly with Flash 11.3 unless I turned off protected mode. This new version of Flash now works on my PC with protected mode turned on.

Interesting. I will have to check for Linux and Mac OS X. I have no idea what versions they have.

Sure if I had GUI access since I am not at the computer. I found out that they have newer builds so I downloaded and compared to my old local installers.

Not everyone had issues with Flash 11.3, but enough people did. My Win 7 Pro x64 desktop did not work till now, my Win 7 Pro laptop had no issues with 11.3 but I updated it also. My desktop has an Nvidia GPU and my laptop ATI.

My son's Win 7 starter netbook also had issues with Flash 11.3 and Firefox. Also none of my XP PC's had any issues with 11.3.

Weren't these issues with 64 bit OS only due to the protected mode now included with Flash? I don't think protected mode runs on XP. Does it run under vista/win7 32 bit?

Aha! That explains why Flash crashed in FF 13 on me today. I went to »www.officedepot.com and clicked on the "This Week's Ad" icon and FF had a seizure for a while, then the "Sorry, Flash has crashed" message popped up. I'll see if the new version fixes that.

The update fixed it. I also didn't have to restart FF!?!? Flash updates used to always require I shutdown FF before they would install.

No update for Mac OS X as of yet, either for Safari or a new version of Chrome. This has been the worst Flash version I ever had on my Mac. Constant problems with Chrome.

I downloaded IE installer, but it was the same from 6/1/2012. I guess it is really only for Firefox. I think FreeCode messed up.

From the original thread in another forum.

quote:
Fixed Issues:
Users experience crashes while viewing Flash content in Firefox on Windows(3211153)

In short, the update only applies to browsers that use a plug-in (vs ActiveX for IE).

Doesn't seem to fix the audio sync issues when playing flash full screen nor does it seem to have fixed the severely degraded performance of flash videos. Turning off hardware acceleration makes no difference. Went back to 10.3.183.20 (Fully security patched) and no issues.

No, it was Low Integrity, on both 32 & 64 OS's.

> I don't think protected mode runs on XP.

Most likely right on that, in particular on x86.
But again, it would be Low Integrity, & Adobe did not add that feature to Flash for XP systems.

> Does it run under vista/win7 32 bit?

Yes, Low Integrity would run on Vista & up OS's.

EDIT:

Yes, you're right, they do call it "Protected Mode". (I was thinking more of Windows "Protected Mode.")

No, it doesn't fix the audio issues. MOG says the problems are on Fx, Chrome and Safari (tested on those OSes) and they have lots of complaints from IE users also. The issues also affect some XP users.

Was wondering if it was just me still having issues still. Forgot to mention this is on XP Pro Service Pack 3. It's strange how up until Flash 11.1.102.63 I had no issues at all on either IE or Firefox. From 11.2.202.228 on I've had those issues above in some form or another and 11.3 only made them worse.

Abobe is stupid, I cannot wait for their demise. HTML-5 needs to be mandatory so we can dispense with this flash rubbish.

It is infuriating that Adobe is dropping Linux/Ubuntu/Mint/Distro support after 11.2, which means no more flash for Linux. This is unacceptable. Flash is a buggy, hideous product that needs to go away. The number of malware that uses adobe to push trojan installs is quite amazing really. Please die flash...

I use Pale Moon as my default browser (I'd describe it as a less bloated version of Firefox). When the Flash problem occurred the developer of Pale Moon made a new version that would work with Flash 11.3. I installed that version and then installed flash. It's been working fine, so I'll leave well enough alone and not install this new version.

Sincerely, Libra
