Windows 10: Adobe flash player plugin has crashed
Adobe flash player plugin has crashed
I keep on geting this error while I try to watch like live webcam or flash video.Youtube works fine but when I try to load webpage like live webcam in firefox it crashes,then I click reload but keep on getting following message:
Adobe flash player plugin has crashed
What's the solution?
What browser and (where applicable) what version of that browser?
Upgraded to firefox 48.0 and still get the same error.I'm using latest version of shockwave flash player.
I was having problems also, I found a page about Hidden Microsoft Edge Settings, worked for me. Hope is helps.
I think the OP is using Firefox, not Edge?
But perhaps there's something at that link that might help...
Have you tried reinstalling Adobe Flash Player?
- Download and save the Flash Player uninstaller from here: Uninstall Flash Player for Windows
- Make sure Firefox is closed.
- Right-click the Flash Player uninstaller and "Run As Administrator".
- Download and save the current version of Adobe Flash Player for Firefox (22.214.171.124) from here or here
- Run the installer.
Also, you might try disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox. See here:

Disable hardware acceleration in Flash
Many Flash problems can be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration in your Flash Player settings (Adobe's Flash Player Help - Display Settings page has details). To disable hardware acceleration in Flash:
- Go to this Adobe Flash Player Help page.
- Right-click on the Flash Player logo on that page, then click on Settings in the context menu. The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
- Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel.
I don't seen any logo on that webpage?How do I get option to disable hardware acceleration?When I right click on flash video I don't get any options.
Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash Player? That would be the first step.
Here are a couple of screen caps to illustrate the process.
If you experience problems when playing back video, follow these steps:
Try disabling hardware acceleration. Right-click the Flash Player logo below and choose Settings from the context menu. Deselect Enable Hardware Acceleration (on the Display tab), and then click Close.
Hope this helps,
The link was not just for Firefox, It is for Hidden configuration pages offer additional settings for Edge, Chrome, Firefox browsers
I use Edge, and it did fix my Flash problems I have been having since the new Windows Update. They changed the Flash Plugin/Flash for security reasons. But the have hidden settings to work around it.
However, the OP reports issues with Firefox, not Edge or IE or Chrome.
It may be confusing to discuss problems with Edge or IE or Chrome.
So, I suggest that we might stick with the OP's original issue first, with Flash Player on Firefox, not the other browsers.
Sorry, first time using these, I got ya! I was using FireFox but starting in August 2016 they are blocking Flash Player. That might be why. I don't know, but mine would not work so I moved to ME. Thanks for all the info
Mozilla will start blocking Flash in Firefox this August | ZDNet
flash player willnot turn on even though I followed adobes methology
There seems to be something wrong with the Adobe Flash Player download site. Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions
Could some one else try it and see if they can find the download? All I see is a white screen..
Why does edge say adobe flash player is disabled when it says it is installed . Used the troubleshooting guide to no avail.
I installed the App News for BBC from Windows 10 Microsoft Edge. It keeps telling me that I need to install Adobe Flash Player but is already integrated. Thru Edge menu Use Adobe Flash Player is on but still does not work.
Anyone know what's going on with MS Update for Adobe Flash Player for IE? My installed version per Windows Updates is 126.96.36.199 current version is now 188.8.131.52. These are supposed to be updated by MS but haven't been for about a week now.
