The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed while you playing Farm ville or other games
The message The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed is shown when the Flash plugin stops working unexpectedly. Simply reload the page to restart the plugin and show the video (or game, animation, etc.) again.
Firefox (version 3.6.4 and later) runs plugins like Flash in a separate process (see What is plugin-container). This is done to prevent Firefox from crashing when a plugin stops working. This article covers what you can do to avoid Flash plugin crashes.
The latest version of the Flash plugin should perform better and crash less often. To check if Flash is up to date, visit Mozilla's Plugin Check page. If it says that Flash needs to be updated, install the latest version manually using the steps below.
- Go to the Flash Player download page at Adobe.com and download the Flash installer.
- At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (File menu in Windows XP) and then click Exit.
- Open the file you downloaded (i.e. install_flash_player.exe), then follow the installer's instructions.
- For more help, see Managing the Flash plugin.
The newest version of Firefox includes all of the latest stability and security fixes. Making sure it's up to date will help keep your computer secure and running great.
