Therefore, I switched to another x64 variant of FF and I am not looking back. The most important thing in business today, before anything else, is communication. You don't have that, you have nothing. Any project in a CV means nothing when you are not able to communicate with colleagues and clients. Thanks again and good luck.

I couldn't agree more. For a while, I though WaterFox would be "maintained" properly. After these recent months I can conclude that it won't be up to my expectations.

There's a tweet from Waterfox (1hr prior to me posting this) that says:-

Waterfox 19 is on it's way, another compiler bug has been found and is being resolved.

Yup. The only different installers present are for different browsers (IE and Firefox).

Why would the installer file name not include x64.

There is no reference to a 64bit installer (inside the 32bit installer?) anywhere?

I can't read everything, but should this info not be on the download page?

You guys may very well be right, but I see no evidence of this. In control panel it is listed as just Flash Player. No mention of 64bit anywhere.

Try to read the FAQs in Adobe's official website. I've been through the same thinking as you and did my research.

Nothing in the FAQ.

On this page it says "Native 64-bit support Flash Player can now take advantage of native support for 64-bit operating systems and 64-bit web browsers on Linux®, Mac OS, and Windows®."

But again, no where else is this mentioned and file name only contains x32.

Pretty stupid if you ask me. Simply add x64 to the file name or remove the damn x32 if it installs both versions (what is the point of the x32 in this case).

Also in the control panel it is only listed as one product so how could one even tell it "installs both versions" from just that?

If you look up the current version you have is just says "You have version 11,6,602,171 installed." Again no mention of any bits.

I have to search for that again and will post back. Last month, I tried installing both x32 and x64 and both programs installed the same exact plugins on my browsers (both x64 and x32 browsers).

I tend to agree, even more since the inter-user communication here has often gotten a bit nasty because no one knows nothing. But thanks for the hint to twitter, maybe I'm just too old-school to check websites and forums when the world has moved on: https://twitter.com/Waterfoxproject

64-bit Flash Player can be found here:
http://www.waterfoxproject.org/plugins.php

Here is the direct download link:

Hope this helps.

This makes a lot more sense. x64 in the file name.

But why is there no link to this from Adobe website.

Also I uninstalled flash and ran this installer, now I have 2 plug-ins for flash a 11.5v and 11.6v. I'm guessing this is because the 64-bit installer gives you both versions.
If so, how can I tell which is which so I can disable the 32-bit one.

Honestly all this effort put into this plug-in is quite frustrating. Why not just have a single 32-bit installer and another single 64-bit installer like Java?

Go to the bottom of the page of Youtube while signed in. Click the Try Something New! link.

Make sure you are not opted into the HTML5 Video trial.

After that, you can try uninstalling Flash from Control Panel and then reinstalling it.


I have never had your problem, so their must be a solution to fix it.

I have had Flash videos crash but work after a simple refresh but never any control problems.
But Flash is definitely wonky on 64-bit browser. This is because they only offer 32-bit version because they don't think it would be important to offer a 64-bit version.
So we have to deal with problems it creates when used in a 64-bit browser because they don't test Flash in 64-bit browser.

Very annoying. I can't wait until 64-bit browsing becomes mainstream and forces all the lazy companies to come out with 64-bit versions.

Java and Silverlight (from Microsoft used for Netflix) both have 64-bit versions. But not the most popular internet plug-in of all time.

Thanks big time..opting into html 5 fixed the problem! flash flat out sucks!
