Description

4 years ago
Any Flash video on bbc.co.uk will hang after 9 seconds and the Flash Player freezes. Example page:
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-24179084
This happens on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Ed Wifi SM-P600 (stock unrooted fw) across all 4 Firefox Channels Aurora, Nightly, Stable, Beta (each updated to newest version).

It doesn't happen on a Galaxy S3 GSM with unrooted stock fw, everything works fine there.

Usually Flash works fine on the Note, never before had Problems. Funny is that their (BBC's) new complex interactive video thingies (Example at http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-24179084  ) works just fine on the Note, just the simple clips cause the bug.

I just wanted to confirm it is a Firefox problem. The video clips play fine in Boat Browser HD for tablets. I just installed it to check this.

Devices:
 - Nexus 9 (android 7.0)
 - Asus Transformer Pad (Android 4.1.2)

Hello,

I've tried to reproduce this issue on on the latest Nightly and I was not able to. Everything worked fine and I didn't encounter any other issues.

How did you test Flash in Firefox on an Android 7 device?
PS that bug is really from the bottom of the data barrel.  ;)
Hello,

 I went to the site and played several videos on both of the tablets listed in my description to see if the videos in your description or any other video hangs and the player freezes as you described it. After thoroughly testing and accessing different videos I didn't encounter any problems except for some long loading times on some videos. I made sure that both devices had the same version of flash by manually downloading and installing it on the devices. (Latest mobile flash player being released on September 10, 2013)

 Is this still an issue for you? Are you still able to reproduce the problem described above on the latest Firefox or Nightly builds?

 For other type of flash player tests there are several other websites to help you verify if your Flash Player is working  correctly in your browser. (For example https://goo.gl/A0OEVP)
Hello,

 Sorry I typed in the wrong Android device I used the Asus Zenpad 8 with Android 6.0, not the Nexus 9, there is some sort of issue with Flash on Android 7 devices and it does not work properly. I was verifying another issue and mixed up the devices.
