Re: regression with adobe flash

I think OP wants an answer to their problem. I will try this with Chrome later, and I apologise for hijacking the thread.

OP is having an issue I had previously that was fixed by "Kill Windowless Flash", which was a useful script but no longer seems to be working with current Firefox. NVDA doesn't let you into certain embedded objects if you don't have this script, instead saying "Embedded Object Unavailable." Is there a fix for this that doesn't involve the apparently defunct "Kill Windowless Flash" Greasemonkey script?

let me clerify a point. Flash isn't crashing. Rather, nvda is failing to access the object. A situation directly the fault of nvda.

Proof of what?  I think it's likely that Flash would run properly in Chrome on the machine.  I won't have proof unless it is tried.  We don't know if Flash is crashing because Flash is crashing or if Flash is crashing because of some sort of problem when it is run with Firefox.  Chrome isn't perfectly accessible but it is reasonably so and should serve quite well when used on sites with flash.  Chrome has quirks when working with settings and I'm not sure if it reads all structures on web pages as well as Firefox but when used on web pages, it is nearly as accessible, if not as accessible, as Chrome.  And for this very limited use, there may be no need to work with settings.
Of course, working on why flash is crashing with the browser currently being used could be investigated on a technical list of blind users or on a site like Bleeping Computer.  It would probably be faster and easier to just try Chrome.

do you have actual proof of this? Since adobe flash, is the same flash used in chrome, I would asume  the same problems exist.  Also, chrome had accessibility issues last I remember.

I'm not sure but this is a very good example of why you should use more than one browser.  If you use Chrome for sites where you want to use Flash, you will probably have no problem.  Flash is built into Chrome so you don't have to install or update it.  It updates itself automatically within Chrome.

I haven't been able to use the Adobe Flash plugin for years now. It
always crashes

if I load a page in Firefox that happens to have Flash content. I've
long since given up trying and am just happy that YouTube has an
alternate player.

If anyone could tell me why my flash player isn't working I'd also be
very grateful.
