Re: Flash v11.3.300.257

Odd, that says I have 257 using Opera (which I do), yet it also says this under versions:

quote:
Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera (and other plugin-based browsers) 11.3.300.262
Typo perhaps?

Not a typo. 11.3.300.262 was a security update for Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera (and other plugin-based browsers).
»Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.262
»Flash Player 11.3.300.262 plug in version only

Oh and thanks antdude See Profile.

Actually, 11.3.300.262 was the fix for the freezing problem with Firefox in Windows protected mode [Vista and Win7]. That's why there was no corresponding ActiveX-based version.

Korngtl15, this is all i could find about the new adobe "flash player 11.3.300.265":

»forums.adobe.com/message/4551666 ··· #4551666

"Today, Flash Player 11.3.300.265 for Windows and Macintosh was released to address critical audio and stability issues"

the post says "see release notes" but the only "release notes" that i could find were for adobe "flash player 11.3.300.262":

»helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/rel ··· 1_3.html

"Security Enhancements: N/A"

"Fixed Issues: Users experience crashes while viewing Flash content in Firefox on Windows"

so, it appears that both of the recent "flash player 11.x" updates were "to address critical audio and stability issues".. i haven't seen anything about any new vulnerabilities being addressed with the latest "flash player 11.x" updates..

incidentally, i am using "flash player 10.3.183.20" and i am not seeing any updates for it..

After the last fiasco with Firefox I'm a little hesitant to update since .262 is working well.;

Crapdobe ended Linux support with 11.2. But that's fine, HTML-5 effectively ends the need for flash, so flash has about another year or two of life left. As for security updates, exploits through flash on Linux are pretty rare so we don't have to worry about that much.

I personally totally hate flash, and cannot wait for it to go away. I hate being forced to use it with some sites that are refusing the HTML-5 migration. Flash is closed, HTLM-5 is an open architecture consortium, so this will be a positive move.

Flash videos in Fx v13.0.1 have been working fine after updating to the latest version of flash with Protected Mode enabled on Win 7 Pro 64bit. YMMV

I ran the flash uninstaller before installing the updates for IE and non-IE based browsers.

So, everything is fixed now for Fx...crashing AND audio? I did not update to the version that caused Fx crashing (after reading here about the crashing) and the audio problems. So, I also did not update to the .262 that fixed the crashing in Fx because it did not address the audio problems.

I've been waiting for a version that fixes all the problems and I guess this must be it.

But they released minor build updates recently. I guess this is the end finally?

Here are the release notes for this new version:

»helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/rel ··· 1_3.html

I haven't tried it yet myself to know if the audio sync issues as well as sluggishness have been resolved on my end.

Thank you for the Release Notes link.

Those notes say this »bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?even ··· =3212648

audio problem in XP and Fx and Chrome has NOT been fixed. I'm not going to upgrade. I have Flash Player only on a guest virtual machine so if the older version I have somehow gets exploited I can just revert the machine to an earlier snapshot.

This might NOT be the fix you're looking for if you're still using an older version of Firefox. Firefox 3.6.28 with v.11.3.300.265 installed crashes every time I close it if Flash content was accessed. Firefox 10 ESR, 12 and 13 are fine. I don't have Firefox 4 installed or I'd test it for you.

Firefox 3.6.28 crashed with v.11.3.300.262 installed too unless you disabled Protected Mode.

I'm using Fx 4 on my host XP machine. I only have Flash installed on the host machine on IE 6 (well, I did until I installed a version that doesn't work on IE 6 - I didn't realize that until too late) and it doesn't work now. So, when I want to play a Flash movie (not often) or do Flash speed tests, I use my virtual machine running XP that has Fx 10 ESR. I just don't want audio problems so until those are fixed completely for Fx on XP, I will just use the older version I have installed.

This new version completely freezes my Firefox 13. I reverted to 262 and the problem went away.

EDIT: Never mind, it's fine. They still haven't fixed the problem with Flash stealing focus from the Firefox window, however.

the system requirements for adobe flash player 11.x are IE 7-or-later and Firefox 4-or-later.. if you are using IE 6 or Firefox 3.6.28, you should use adobe flash player 10.x rather than using flash player 11.x..

Flash installer should be checking and not installing for old versions.
