[Solved] Palemoon: Flashplayer crashes almost every time playing a vid

Hi,

I recently heard of Palemoon and it's benefits. So I wantet to give it a try. It feels very good to use but I have a problem playing flash videos. Almost every time trying it says "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. Reload the page to try again". It doesn't crash the whole browser.

My installation is 64 bit. The flasplayer is version 11.2.202.569-1. I tried these Palemoon AUR packages: palemoon 26.1.0-1, palemoon-bin 26.1.0-1, palemoon-git 26.1.0b1+d756344-1. I also tried the "bzipped tarball" from the Palemoon website directly. All show the same behaviour.

I searched the web and found solutions for other flash crashes which were solved by disabling Protected mode. I tried that by adding "ProtectedMode=0" to /etc/adobe/mms.cfg. I can tell that it's recognize because it changes behaviour slightly. With that option the whole browser freezes for some seconds when trying to play Flash video, then it starts responding again but the Flash plugin still crashes.


I already tried to use Freshplayer/Pepperflash instead of Adobe Flashplayer. I got Palemoon to use Pepperflash and videos started playing without the plugin to crash but unfortunately they don't play well. It's more like a slideshow so that is not an option.


I already posted in the Palemoon forum but I thought someone here could help me as well: Palemoon thread

I use palemoon, but not flashplayer. Freshplayer works fine for me though (both on nVidia and AMD graphics), so possibly both your flash-related issues are symptoms of another problem. Could you share information about your system -- what graphics does it have, what driver do you use, what mesa/gl packages do you have installed.

Mod note: Moving to AUR Issues.

I have a Nvidia GTX 750 using the binary Nvidia driver extra/nvidia, extra/nvidia-libgl and extra/mesa. All packages are up to date.

Hi,

it seems that I have a solution/workaround for my problem. I found this askubuntu thread. I know it's a different topic but it was sugested in another thread about crashes which I can't find anymore.
I used the "Prevent Flash Player from finding libvdpau" workaround and had no Flash crashes so far.
