    Re: firefox crash on some flash webpages

    Works fine here with FF 38 and flash v 11.2.202.460, though in my FF flash is not being used to view the videos on that site; I think it uses HTML-5.

    Check you are HTML5 enabled at https://www.youtube.com/html5, which seems to work on other sites as well as youtube.

    What hardware have you got?

    How much RAM; what CPU; which graphic card and driver (probably nvidia from the report)?

    Works here.

    Start a new profile to see if it works. Close Firefox, then open your home directory, press ctrl+h to show hidden files, find the hidden folder .mozilla and rename it to something like .mozilla-bk and then start firefox and go to to the link again. To revert back, close FF, go to home directory and show hidden files and delete .mozilla and rename .mozilla-bk back to .mozilla.


    Edited: the video is in html5, not sure what flash has to do with it..

    Just another confirmation. Faultless here. Xubuntu 14.04 LTS new install (last Friday) and minimal. Firefox 38.

    What's enabled for youtube doesn't quite matter elsewhere (you should be able to get everything green on that youtube page except the last one which doesn't really matter one way or the other (MSE & WebM VP9

    Seems you are playing from this page - http://camendesign.com/code/video_fo...body/test.html
    What happens if you r. click on the OGG link > Save link as & then open the downloaded vid, (big_buck_bunny.ogv), in firefox from wherever you downloaded to, typically your Downloads folder
