I just can't figure this one out. Recently when Mozilla changed Flash to 'Ask to Activate' I would get the Flash graphic on the video to activate it or not. For the past few days I now get a message that I need to install Flash.

I created a new profile and ran a Flash video and got the message if I want to activate the plugin. The video played fine. However, when I got out of Fx and went back in I got the message that I need to install Flash.

I just discovered that if I reinstall the Flash plugin after I played a Flash video the video plays fine. If I don't reinstall Flash I get the you need to install Flash message.

Anyone know what the problem is?

**** If you get HBOGO try those videos, they are all Flash.

It is an e10s issue. With e10s disabled Flash videos work fine. Can anyone confirm this? If yes, is there a bug report on it?

Fx crawls with e10s disabled.

Somebody must have tried running Flash with e10s enabled on Nightly preferably on Windows 10. Problem or no problem?

Yep, that was it. Running now with it backed off and Flash is fine. Thanks for the link.
