I have done this,
Adobe Forums: How do I disable Flash Player's protected mode for Firefox?

& this

How to Disable Protected Mode of Flash Player in Firefox

i tried this, but it didn't work with notpad, i used notepad++ but the file wouldn't save in the folder, so what i did was save the new file to the desktop & then move the original file to the desktop [it changed its name to mms (2)] i then moved the edited file into the FLASH folder & i then opened Firefox & the flash videos started working again :D

Can somebody with the skill please have a look at this, it works for me i don't know for how long though, maybe this can be passed on to others.

Just one question, will a follow up update from Adobe fix this or will i have to change the file myself ?

Been playing around with this version of Flash and FF13. Easiest way to change that mms.cfg file is to just run Notepad as Administrator and then open that file to edit/save.

Everything seems to work fine for me in Windows 7 Pro 64bit. One thing I have noticed is that if Protected Mode is on, the browser looses focus on the first page that has Flash content. After that, it seems to keep focus from then on. This is more likely an Adobe issue related to those Flash processes starting and not a FF one.

According to this: http://blogs.adobe.com/asset/2012/06/in ... refox.html it's a Windows Vista and above only thing.

Flash player 11.3 and plugin-container.exe crash often for me too. so in order to get things back to normal you have to disable the "new security enhancement" ? this is ridiculous... Adobe Flash itself is the worst hacker/troublemaker. [rant] can't wait for HTML5 video becoming the standard and uninstalling this Flash crap forever.[/rant]

When is Firefox finally gonna be the first of the major players that says this crap is enough !? :evil:
You created html5 just for the sake of getting rid of some lifelong bugdumps like this.
You created html5 in partnership, now USE it, or will this, once more, be some testing feature we worked on some time to not bore ourselves, but we won't use it anyways.

so if i use this

http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1018071?tstart=0
and add
ProtectedMode = 0

this will allow me to use/see Youtube videos and sppedtest.net on FF instead of IE (which is working no problem :\)

Hi, this is my first post here. I would like to confirm that troubleshooting of ProtectedMode = 0 is working nice for me.
However, when I removed it again as mentioned in Adobe site, things didn't work. So I re-added it again.
Thanks every one for inputs.
With best regards.

I've experimented with disabling plugin-container.exe, following the instructions from here: http://techdows.com/2010/07/how-to-disa ... refox.html

And, I've restored mms.cfg to it's original configuration, enabling Protected Mode, following the instructions from here: http://techdows.com/2012/06/disable-fla ... refox.html

Everything seems to work fine, no crashing, yet, but my question is, does disabling plugin-container.exe affect the protection mode of Flash Player in Firefox?

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0

Not on WinXP, as you seem to be running. Flash Player protected mode is not available at all on WinXP.

Just went thorugh this myself. I'm on Win 7, 64-bit.

Originally, I was on FF12 when the Flash 11.3 "upgrade" came through. After installing, I couldn't use Youtube any more.

Upgrading to FF13 didn't help.

With FF13, I added the "ProtectedMode = 0" to the cfg file and that worked.

But, I don't like running without that security, so I uninstalled Flash 11.3 and rolled back to 11.2 and took out the ProtectedMode line.

Everything works fine now (FF13 and Flash 11.2), and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :mrgreen:

Now, if everyone can get talking to each other to fix this, that would be great...

I'm in safe mode with all add ons disabled. I'm not going through the process of elimination. Youtube works now, but other video sites don't. What is causing the problem!............

You do realize that Flash 11.2 doesn't have the protected mode at all. Besides, Flash 11.3 has other security problems fixed over Flash 11.2. How's your warm and fuzzy feeling now? :P
