Summary: flash plugin crashes in firefox and
chrome after online update
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 12.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None

AssignedTo: bnc-team-mozilla@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML,
like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.168 Safari/535.19

version worked fine in both, the new version installed via online update crashes or hangs as soon as any
page using flash is opened. Downgrading to the stable version helps. The new
version seems to have a new feature - it asks for permission to run on every
new page (this was usually handled via flashblock addons for most people). Just
to make sure it's not a conflict between addons and plugin I've disabled all
addons and the result is still the same.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch browser
2. navigate to then click on "Flash player"
3. observer the flash window crash or hang indefinitely
Actual Results:
flash crashes or hangs

Expected Results:
flash functions normally

I would suggest to pull back the new version from the online respoitory till
it's fixed.
Though I think flash is a horrible platform, it gets more and more popular, and
one can hardly have full web experience these days without it.
Oh and yes, if "firefox" is the wrong subsection please move it to the correct
Thank you
