    Default Adobe Flash Player (18.0.0.203) crashes on Youtube

    Are you having problems with videos on youtube, does the Adobe Flash Player plugin crash when you switch videos to fullscreen ?
    If so, then itīs caused by the latest update to Adobe Flash Player (18.0.0.203) which was released 2015-07-08.

    Installing Adobe Flash Player v13 (ESR) might solve the problem.

    "Extended Support Release - Flash Player 13.0.0.302

    What is the Extended Support Release?
    Adobe makes available a version of Flash Player called the "Extended Support Release" (ESR) to organizations that prefer Flash Player stability over new functionality. We have created a branch of the Flash Player code that we keep up to date with all of the latest security updates, but none of the new features or bug fixes available in our current release branch. This allows organizations to ceritify and stay secure on Flash Player with minimal effort.

    Adobe Flash Player v13 (ESR): https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/ge...3_active_x.exe


    Although Iīm using Pale Moon 64-bit, there are a few threads on Adobeīs forum where people say this has happened also with other non-IE browsers, like fx. Firefox.

    I had to: install Pale Moon-32, run Pale Moon in safe-mode several times,
    reinstall Pale Moon-64, run Pale Moon in safe-mode several times,
    uninstall & reinstall Adobe Flash Player several times, to fix this problem.

    So you might have to do a lot of unstalling and reinstalling to fix this....

    Now i finally got it working, running Pale Moon-64 and Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.302

    Iīm confused.
    Why do you try to install Adobe Flash player 18.0.0.203 if you already have it installed ?

    You donīt have to do a system restore to remove an old version of Adobe Flash Player, just uninstall it.

    Anyway, itīs time for you to upgrade: Adobe has released a new version of Flash player, 18.0.0.209

    Hello,

    As per the latest updates, Mozilla has now blocked all Adobe Flash (18.0.0.203) after some serious security flaws.

    Regards.
