Flash has been a issue for awhile now, Firefox blocked for a week or so.  I have removed and replaced it at least four times. Did it again yesterday all seemed good but again this AM it started screwing up again.  It seems to only be in FF as IE works, I don't use IE have not for many years.  The issue is on my Toshiba C855 laptop, any ideas appreciated.

Hey Phil,

 

What error message are you receiving?

 

You could try Chrome, it has flash player pre-installed in it.

I was having problems with flash in Firefox. Made the browser freeze followed by error messages. Read elsewhere about the flash problem where it was suggested doing without flash on the PC entirely. Firefox ran better but of course flash videos won't play. Not a problem as I also use Chrome (never use IE). Not been happy with Firefox for some time anyway.

I suggest uninstalling flash. Is there something you need it for?

The message is the script has stopped, gives stop or continue.  I tried Chrome and did not like it been a FF user forever, will not use IE except to test.  Oddly enough it has been working fine the past day or so, I found that both Chrome and FF are now working on HTML5 hope that fixes the problem.  When I got rid of Flash a couple of days back news movies did not work, I do a ton of news and do like to have full content.  Will do a wait and see!

 

Thanks for the input.
