Flash v11 plugin crashes in SeaMonkey v2.0.14 and Iceweasel/Firefox v7.0.1 in Linux/Debian.

Oct 23, 2011 8:30 PM

Hello.

 

Is anyone else having crashes with Flash v11 plugin not working in SeaMonkey v2.0.14 and Iceweasel/Firefox v7.0.1 in Linux/Debian? Iceweasel/Firefox says the plugin is crashing, but not the browser. In SeaMonkey, it crashes with it and I have to kill its processes. I had to downgrade back to old Flash v10. No problems with it. It seems like v11 is buggy for me.

 

Thank you in advance.

    i'm not able to repro.  here's what i did:

    • started with a fresh install of Debian 64-bit. 
    • uninstalled gnash since it was installed by default.
    • downloaded the tar.gz from adobe.com and used the 7za utility to unpack it. 
    • saved the binary, libflashplayer.so, to ~/.mozilla/plugins (created the dir since it was not there)
    • quit out of iceweasel and restarted browser
    • nav iceweasel to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    apologies, i was out yesterday...

     

    nothing specific for linux.  in fact, hardware acceleration has been disabled and will fall back to software from what i am told.  i'm thinking you should not even crash if this is the case.

     

    which graphics card and Nvidia driver version do you have currently?

    i've entered an external bug, but because it is a crasher, it is not externally visible.  thanks again...

    it's a catch 22.  i entered it externally as a crasher.  unfortunately, all labeled crashers are not viewable to the public.
