The Adobe flash plugin has crashed

If you get this error message that "The Adobe flash plugin has crashed" and your Firefox browser crashes and shuts down, the problem is relatively new, and is being encountered by a lot of people using Firefox. At the initial phase we have figured out a piece of solution to give some relief.
Also this is what Adobe has to say about this issue "Our application, which has run fine for the last year on all browsers and flash combination, suddenly crash any time we try to load it. It was build using Flex 3 and hasn't generally had stability problems" Adding to this they have said "Flash 10.1 is the one which is facing this issue but is working fine with MAC and IE7"
Let's go ahead and try to resolve this issue.
We need to make a few changes in the configuration. This is how:
In the Firefox address bar, type about:config and press Enter.
You would probably get a certificate stating: This might void your warranty! You can ignore that message this time and click on the button: I'll be careful, I promise!
The following page would open up: Now, In the "Filter" box, type: dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs Double click "dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs", under the "Preference Name" and in the "Enter Integer Value" pop up window, set the value as: -1 and Click on "OK" This would disable hang protection of firefox browser.

I followed these instructions and they did not work for me. Doing further research I came across this link http://culturahack.com.ar/Foro/index.php?topic=15625.msg61913;topicseen in Spanish which talks about this timeout problem with Firefox in more detail.
In my case, realizing that this setting of -1 did not work, and that I saw the same behavior with Chrome and IE8, I went for the radical solution. I assumed that it is a timeout problem with Windows DEP, and decided to turn it completely off. I'm not worried, since Windows has worse security holes than working without DEP, and I trust my firewall.
In case you are wondering how to turn off DEP, just edit your boot.ini file, replacing /NoExecute=OptIn with /NoExecute=AlwaysOff and reboot.

so running a flash site or a game that excessively uses your CPU might hang up whole system. there should be timeout. I think you'd rather make it bigger.

It seems like the newest Firefox update fixes this issue, and that the timeout has been extended.

Not on my computer!

I tried it all. its not a problem with Firefox, it a problem with the latest Adobe Flash update. I have uninstalled Adobe flash Player, and then downloaded and installed the previous version (http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp_10.1.102.64_and_9.0.289.0_archive.zip), and that fixes all the problems. Now, sites like www.sterkinekor.com work perfectly.


Great post and really you have a done a great job its really helpful for all the visitors of this blog and especially for those who are the victims of this error,
Thanks for sharing

I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash, firefox, internet explorer and every codec on my computer. I've changed the "dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs" to -1 and dont have a boot.ini file to modify, reverted to older versions of flash but it just asks to upgrade instead of crashing. Ive installed older versions of firefox, ive installed new browsers (neoplanet, chrome, oprah, safari) Ive downloaded codec packs and every possible file i can find on the adobe site with flash in it. Active x, Macromedia flash, adobe flash. Im getting my stuff saved to dump my computer and reinstall windows, does anyone know if that works or am i going to be right back here?

Can't seem to get around this issue. Does anyone have a legitimate fix yet? Is this systemic to many user?

The first post was from Aug 2010, it is now Aug 2012 and the problem still recurs. Time for someone to replace Adobe Flash if Adobe isn't going to respond to the problem. I mean 2 years!
