How to get Firefox to un-crash Adobe Flash player so I can get on with my life.
posted by herbplarfegan to technology (5 answers total)
On my humble net-label's website, I post albums in bandcamp's "venti" sized embedded player-- which is usually real snazzy. Today I updated it so I have (well, had) 20 of these players on the page at once, for current featured releases. For a few shufflings worth-- during a span of about 15 minutes-- they were all up, all running.
Then they all went kooky, showed what I now know to be the 'plug-in crash' icon, and said that the Adobe Flash plug-in had crashed.
I followed the instructions and updated my version of the plug-in, then updated to the most recent version of Firefox.
Now, my site won't even show the players at all. I know it's not a problem with my code, because I didn't change it at all during this whole fiasco.
When I view my site, it looks like nothing's there, and when I click and drag on the empty space, as you would do to highlight text, it shows black rectangles on the spots where the players should be.
Needless to say, I wonder what to do in order to fix this, as my to-do list (items #2 to #2million) festers during this layover.
