    Flash continually crashes in 12.04

    Didn't have this issue in 10.04, but it seems that all flash content will crash w/ the exception of youtube. No idea where to start.

    If you are using nvidia graphics then you could try and right-click on a youtube video, go to settings and disable hardware-acceleration for flash... This may help...

    Yes, I am actually! But it wont let me uncheck the box under Settings...or even close it once it's open for that matter.

    Same here. On Windows there is no sucha problem. It occured to me after updating firefox to a newer version. It updates flash, and i saw on forum that with latest update form Adobe there is no hardware acceleration support more for nVidia, while the old had it. I'm using icedtea web plugin now cause with adobe flash i had problems with firefox but it is still present cause i unpacked it and copied to a location where it should be.

    Well I unintalled the nvidia driver completely and deleted the mms.cfg (/etc/adobe) file. While I'm back to getting the screen tearing I was accustomed to in 10.04, flash actually works now. Catch 22 it seems :/

    The solution which worked for me was to uninstall the adobe flashplayer plugin and replace it with the "Google, from Chrome" flashplayer, using the Flash-Aid tool for Firefox, available here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...don/flash-aid/

    if you run the youtube video in full screen it shoudl let you go into properties and untick the hardware acceleration box... Had to do that for a friends system to get flash to behave...

    I spoke too soon. Flash is back working in youtube, but not in some other sites... This is particularly annoying when sites use flash technology for authentication: copying numbers and words.
    No combination of plugins and browsers seems to fix it...
