11.x before 11.2.202.235 on Windows
^ from your web.nvd.gist.gov link.

The problem lies with the fact that for some people, Flash 11.3 is useless, it doesn't work or crashes inside the browser, 11.3 with the mms.cfg addition of the line: ProtectedMode=0 might be the best workaround (assuming that protected mode isn't the only security fix or update in 11.3) but many people are not comfortable with editing files deep inside the Windows folder, just like some aren't happy editing the Registry - for them, reverting to Flash 11.2 is a good compromise that they can handle as an activity within their comfort zone.

In the latest Adobe troubleshooting page for the current rash of Flash issues, it's one of the last options they offer: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1018071. The problem with that is that Flash 11.2.202.235 is NOT on the archived versions page that they link to: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1022066?tstart=0 which links to: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html

sorry wrong cve http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb12-14.html

this also http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1022066?tstart=0 links to this http://forums.adobe.com/thread/889580 why there is no 11.2.202.235 archived i don't know there all vulnerable also has this

f you install the latest 10.3 build, you will get a player with all known security patches applied. It won't however have the functionality of the 11.x series. If you install the last version of 11.x, your player might not have all of the known security updates applied but you will have more recent features.

Seriously sparkler, for those people who have these problems with Flash 11.3 it effectively means they have a Flash player that doesn't work. No amount of recent features is going to convince them to keep a player that doesn't play.

Problem with Waterfox:

One plugin recognizes Waterfox as a separate browser and not as Firefox.

The Dfx Audio Enhancer recognizes Waterfox as a separate browser and not Firefox. Please fix this so I can continue to use Waterfox. Otherwise, I unfortunately have to go back to the stock Firefox. I don't know which of my other plugins are having the same problem. Lets hope its just Dfx Audio Enhancer.

I'm also using ad muncher, webroot secure anywhere complete, and malwarebytes anti-malware. Please make sure that Waterfox gets recognized as Firefox on our systems like it should be.

Thanks for all of your work. Please get back to me.

It's really up to the vendor to recognize and support Waterfox as a Firefox fork or independently. Have you reported it to them?

Hi,

You would think so. Although, it seems obvious since most of the other plugins work that its something that Waterfox is doing. I'm sure if Waterfox devs would make sure that Waterfox is 100% being detected as Firefox that it would work. Dfx Audio Enhance simply looks for Firefox. DFX seems to be seeing a Waterfox ID and not Firefox.

Nothing is wrong with Waterfox. Go talk to whoever makes the plugins you want and ask them for 64bit compatibility. There is nothing that can be done to Waterfox to fix your problem as it is a problem with 3rd party software.

And for all intents and purposes, Waterfox is recognized as Firefox, not as a separate "browser" that would confuse plugins. Some plugins simply do not have 64bit support and so will not start with Waterfox, but start with Firefox just fine. Both WF and FF pull from the same list of plugins installed on your computer, there isn't a separate set of plugins just for Waterfox, they are all from the same place.

Yes, many plugins have 64bit compatibility. Java, Flash, and Silverlight all install both 32bit and 64bit on your computer when you install them. The problem you are having is the people who make the plugins you want do NOT include 64bit version of their plugins, so they do not start with Waterfox.
