I'm using Fedora 21 and using Mozilla Firefox, the latest version.

When I had Adobe Flash (flash-plugin) installed, my Computer was freezed at least 4 times in a day, and Gnome shell crashed a lot.

I suspected Adobe flash, and indeed, since I removed it, no single crash and freeze so far (2 weeks).

I very like the Youtube HTML5 player, and I wonder if there is any way to play Facebook videos in HTML5, or something similar.

Any extention or modify.

I believe that the solution isn't depends the operating system, so if you have a solution for Windows, I would like to hear.

I would be really glad to get helped. Thanks in advance.

  • If the game is Flash-based then, no, you will need to have Flash player installed. Can you install Chrome as that has a different Flash player built-in... – Kinnectus Jan 24 '15 at 19:28
  • That is a real shame, that such a company still asks for plugins. Hope they will not ask for Java next year. – Ivan Kuckir Jun 4 '15 at 9:52

I have not personally tested the following suggestions. You should be able to add the m prefix before the URL, which would allow you to view the video without flash.

Example: m.facebook.com

The following Firefox extension might also do the job, I have not tested this.

    I have tested a few GreaseMonkey scripts and Firefox extensions to no avail. If you would like, we could go over some of the issues you had with Adobe Flash. The only other suggestion I can currently think of is using Google Chrome which has Adobe Flash built in. – Sarge Jan 25 '15 at 7:27
