Earlier this month Adobe issues an update the the Flash player plug-in for Mozilla's Firefox browser. The update, Flash Player 11.3, causes several problems most notably none stop crashes with the Flash player. Adobe has now found a fix for the crashes and has issued an update to Flash Player 11.3.300.262.
As previously reported the initial suspicions pointed to a new sanboxing feature in Flash Player 11.3, but yesterday Adobe claimed that there were "different causes" for the crashes, which seemed to be concentrated on Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines. At this time Adobe hasn't made it clear what these different causes are. Tn a recent blog post they simply state "We continue to work closely with Mozilla to further improve
pre-release testing to more reliably catch issues like these."
Flash Player 11.3.300.262
can be downloaded from Adobe's website. Firefox users can also wait for
Flash's silent updater to automatically download and install the new
plug-in. this is of course if you didn't turn off automatic updates.
I've been running the new update for a few days and have yet to see any crashes or any other issues. So users should be good to go.
