Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713224749

Steps to reproduce:

When playing multiple videos using adobe flash player, it will cause FF to lock up, requiring it to be killed. This did not happen in FF13, and seeing as killing the flash player process does not fix FF, means that it is a regression of bug 156493.


Actual results:

see above


Expected results:

see above
Does it happen with a new profile (see http://support.mozilla.org/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles)?
Can not reproduce with Firefox 14 or Seamonkey trunk and Flash Version: 11.3.300.262 (Protected mode disabled)
Without steps to reproduce Flash version information and stack trace this bug report is not very useable.

btw: A freeze/hang/lock up is not a crash
Summary: firefox 14 crashes when using flash player → firefox 14 freezes when using flash player

Is your Flash up to date?  You can check here:
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
Component: Untriaged → Flash (Adobe)
Product: Firefox → Plugins
Version: 14 Branch → unspecified

"Can not reproduce with Firefox 14 or Seamonkey trunk and Flash Version: "

How many videos were you loading at once? It seems to happen quite reliably for me (even with new profile) if I have about 50 liveleak videos playing in separate tabs, or about 5-10 1080p youtube videos going. On ff 13, killing plugin-container if it froze would always unfreeze firefox itself.


"Is your Flash up to date?  You can check here:"

It says flash is uptodate. 

   File: libflashplayer.so
    Version: 
    Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

Mathias' computer is on Windows. Your problem is likely specific to Linux or a Linux distro.
Can you provide a stack trace during the hang (see https://developer.mozilla.org/en/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report#Linux)?

I'm closing a lot of bugs which are filed as Adobe Flash bugs which are either irrelevant, not actionable, or not serious enough to track in the Mozilla bug tracker. For the most part, Flash bugs should be filed in Adobe bugbase, and we'll only track a few highly-critical issues in the Mozilla tracker.
