How To Fix The Problem Of Flash Always Crashing in Firefox

H

I love Firefox, but I hate how it works with Flash. Essentially, it doesn’t work and causes hair-pulling frustration.

I tried looking around to see if any other people are facing the same problems, and it’s clear that I’m not alone in this situation. From the various posts online, it’s a problem that has plagued Firefox users since several versions ago, and up till now, the same issue persists. The problem with this is that it’s an issue with a plug-in, not with the browser itself.

flashblock It seems like nothing can solve this issue, even with updating Firefox and the Flash plug-in to the latest versions. I’ve gotten so sick of the problem that I found another way to workaround this issue, and that’s to completely disable Flash. Good riddance.

You’ll need the free Flashblock plug-in for Firefox, and once you’ve installed it, you’ll see that Flash is blocked by default. The great thing is that even ads are blocked now. If you want to see a particular Flash object, just right-click on it, and choose to have it display. If you want to have all Flash objects from a website to always display (like for YouTube.com), that’s also just a line that you add into the plug-in’s settings.

And that’s it. No more Flash. Joy.
