I don’t know whats goin’ on..I had this problem for a LONG time now..But just last night I decided I was fed up with it, and spent hours disabling a lot of plugins and reinstalled Firefox. Before, Firefox would just stop responding altogether..But now, it just freezes. I know it doesn’t make much of a difference but that’s how I did it.
Anyway, I guess Shockwave Flash is my default flash player..Because anytime I disable it, flash stops working altogether. But when Firefox freezes when I go to a Youtube video, I get that popup that says Shockwave Flash has stopped working. So I click “Stop plugin”, and the video plays just fine..
Its weird..Shockwave Flash is the only flash player that shows up in my plugins. BUT I installed Adobe Flash Player 11 multiple times because its not showing ANYWHERE on my pc. OR in my plugins..I have Windows 7 64 Bit.
This is really confusing. I got NO idea what to do. Maybe there’s some way to change my default flash player? i dunno..But I just about given up on fixing this..
I heard since Google bought out Adobe Flash Player, Firefox stopped making it compatible or somethin’..Iunno. Like..People that have the same problem as me say that Firefox stopped supporting Flash back in Firefox 13. I got Firefox 23.
It cant be my video card..I mean..It didn’t USE to do this before. Last year I could watch videos just fine. It only started this year, when I had the issue.
