User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build ID: 20141126041045

Steps to reproduce:

I am unsure how to reproduce this since I don't know when it has started. I am just using facebook and going online to udemy.com, dangerousminds, uproxx, etc. Watching videos or opening websites that use flash cause it to hang and become unresponsive.


Actual results:

Adobe flash player has opened many instances even when firefox is closed as well as the plugin manager. Eventually, the flash player will not work and the browser does not load properly.


Expected results:

The sites should load video content and be usable. I was  able to watch videos last night.

Could you update to Flash 16.0.0.235 and check if it's reproducible, please.

Loic, I updated to 16. The flash player closes and does not flood the task manager. However, now youtube is causing my browser to hang up and become unresponsive. I am unsure that it is a local issue since my chrome browser is able to play and functions normally. 

Firefox seems to use up a lot of memory resources still. About 100 MB, 41%

Resolving old bugs which are likely not relevant any more, since NPAPI plugins are deprecated.
