Adobe Flash player makes my Firefox browser crash

My old PC died so I just started using and old one, running Windows 2000, that I had sitting around. I installed Firefox, my preferred browser, and many sites tell me I need the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to view conten. As soon as I install it, the browser crashes within moments of being opened. I had the same experience with the Opera browser. The fixes I've seen on the internet seem (1) different from each other, and (2) cryptic to me. Any suggestions?

I too use Firefox and so far I have not had any problems with it. After you install FF, you should close it before installing Adobe Flash. After you have finished installing Flash Player, your FF should be working. BTW be sure to get the latest version of FF.

Have you tried using Internet Explorer? Sometimes the newer features of Firefox and Opera are buggy with older operating systems.

Adobe flash plug in has been crushed


If the flash player has crashed once, then it may not be a problem but if this is occurring repeatedly, then try to upgrade your flash player. If your flash player is up-to-date, then it may be the incompatibility between the flash player and the web-browser. In that case, try to have both the most recent updated browsers, like Mozilla Firefox 4, Google Chrome 12 or IE 8 or IE 9 and corresponding updated flash player.

To download latest softwares, click on the links below:
  1. Adobe Flash Player IE (for Internet Explorer, Avant,etc)
  2. Adobe Flash Player Non-IE (for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc)
  3. Mozilla Firefox 4 RC
  4. Google Chrome 12 Beta
If you use Firefox or Chrome as browser, then Flash Player for Non-IE is sufficient, but still I recommend you to install both the IE and Non-IE flash players.

Hope this helps,
Regards,

Hi, in order to play the Games that you have mentioned.

Please download and install the latest browser Mozilla Firefox 4 from the below link:

Please close all the windows of Mozilla Firefox before installing Adobe Flash Player, open the Mozilla Firefox after installing the Adobe Flash Player. Now all the games of Facebook should work!

Fix adobe flash crashed in all browser


Try to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player Active X and Plug in and then reinstall it as there could be traces of previous versions in the computer which are interfering and making it difficult for the browsers to properly display videos on your computer. You can do this from the computer user settings and manipulating the "Add/Remove" programs list.

-- Try to use Flash Player 9 is your Flash Player 10 is not working fine. You can simply download it from the Adobe web site.

-- Update the drivers, the link is given below which would ask you to download the file through internet and run it on your computer.

-- The problem behind the Shockwave Flash crash could be your sound drivers. Follow these steps:

1) Open Device Manager
2) Look for the sound-card device
3) Note down the name for that device
4) Just uninstall the it.
5) After uninstalling restart your machine.
6) Your Windows 7 or Windows Vista would automatically download and reinstall the sound driver. You can also do it manually through approaching the sound card company's web site.

-- Fix your Windows Registry which is a highly recommended thing you should do to find a quick and reliable fix for common PC errors and crashes.use registry cleaner reginout

Adobe Flash Player download problem


Hi,
What Browser are you using, incidentally?
If you're trying to download the latest Flash Player, then maybe the link is detecting your browser... If you are using a 64-bit browser (I have no experience of these, I just think this might be worth a try) then maybe you should try installing Firefox and installing the Adobe Flash Player with that, to make sure you don't get 're-directed' to the 64-bit-message.
Try this link instead:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

Hope this helps
