Windows 8.1, IE version 11
why does flashplayer keep crashing?
I'll be on a website (facbook for example). everything will be running just fine, then all of a sudden, I get a message that says you need to install flash player
so, I don't install any flashplayer since supposedly it comes enabled and activated already.
I close the @browser window, open it back up, go back to the exact same place I was before when it crashed, and now it works fine.
this happens a couple of times a day, never on the same screen, flashplayer simply decides to lose its brains, and for whatever reason thinks its uninstalled every so often.
Thanks for the head's up. What you're describing doesn't match my technical definition of a crash. Typically you would get a windows dialog indicating that an application has crashed, with some error reporting information. It doesn't sound like that's what you're seeing, and I'm going to work off the behavior you described for the rest of this.
Typically, adding problematic sites to the Compatibility Mode list will resolve this until the content provider gets around to updating their site:
