I would consider myself to be quite technical and I haven't had an issue with Windows in a long time, but recently, Firefox started to show that "Stopped Working" dialog each time I closed it, so I decided to completely cleanly uninstall Firefox (including scanning for registry entries, removing the Program Files folder, and removing the Roaming data folder).
After reinstalling, I now receive the "Stopped Working" dialog on Flash every time I view a flash-based page in Firefox. I've tried to uninstall Flash and reinstall it, but to no avail. Here is the crash report from the dialog:
Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BEX Application Name: FlashPlayerPlugin_11_5_502_135.exe Application Version: 11.5.502.135 Application Timestamp: 50b849af Fault Module Name: StackHash_cad8 Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0 Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000 Exception Offset: 6b8392cd Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Data: 00000008 OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1 Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: cad8 Additional Information 2: cad8af42b5aa650bf35704654eb8c9ee Additional Information 3: 30e6 Additional Information 4: 30e63471c9c5c77a9680ae22de7d4c95
I am running Windows 7 64bit SP1, fully updated as of yesterday. I am using the latest version of Firefox (17.0.1) and I am using the setup file directly from Adobe for Flash. I've tested the same flash-based website in the latest version of Opera and the latest version of Chrome. While I have no issue using Chrome, my preferred development environment is Firefox.
I would have normally chosen to Google this, but do to the generic nature of Flash "not working", I was unable to dig through the myriad of posts of people having issues with Flash.
Any and all help is thoroughly appreciated!
