For example, in the attached demo "Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)" always displays false even if I press the left arrow. Expected results: I expect the Flash Player in Firefox to detect when a key is down. (The attached file should display true when the left arrow is pressed, and the games should just work). This is the exact repetition of this previous bug I filed: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1185529.
WFM with FF45 protected mode on/off e10s on/off.
Works fine in 32bit versions, not works in 43.0 64bit.

Summary: Flash AS2 key press not detected → Flash AS2 key press not detected in 64bit versions
Hi, Any updates ? As I mentioned in the first post, this is issue was already reported and solved a few months ago. Now that it is broken again (regression ?), isn't it possible to solve it with the same patch ? I wanted to try again (I checked the meat boy link) and I noticed that the Enter key seems to be detected but not the other keys (space, arrows). I get that HTML5 is promoted instead of Flash, but there is still content relying on this technology. I love the politics of Firefox so I will stick with it, but for persons wanting to just use these flash animations, I'm afraid that it might incite them to jump for competitors :/
Only the 64b version is affected. Reg range: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=d8e5f72da53aad99d4d4b67de44cb80f62754aa8&tochange=5d168ed7999b8f4c3472a822eddafd2b630870a5
Component: Plug-ins → Security: Process Sandboxing
OS: Unspecified → Windows
Version: 45 Branch → 43 Branch
Unfortunately, we don't have a solution for this old Flash content with our NPAPI sandbox enabled, which it is on 64-bit. The previous bug was used to track fixing 32-bit, which was also broken in pre-release for a while.
