The latest version of flash (11.3) has a problem (bug?) in the following combination:
Operating system - windows 7, browser - Firefox or Avant using Firefox rendering.
The problem is that streaming videos don't stream (try any Youtube video).

Peculiarities: not a problem with windows xp, or windows 7 with chrome or Avant using IE rendering.

My personal solution - use flash 10.3 with Firefox - minor nuisance: I have to do the replacement every day, since Adobe keeps updating it (overnight?) back to 11.3.

I reported the problem to Adobe within the last couple of days. I suppose they will eventually get around to fixing it.

I remembered there is somewhere can disable the auto-update of flash player.

I tried that, but Adobe ignored the setting and kept updating anyhow. Possibly the option to not update doesn't apply when they are introducing a new version and not simply fixing bugs.

In windows XP control panel theres a flash player manager , open it , go to advanced tab and disable updates.
Or
In a page that has a flash video , right-click , global configurations , advanced tab and disable updates.

Under windows xp there is no problem with Firefox + flash 11.3, only with Windows 7.

Note: Someone has a post describing the same problem in "Avant Browser Help".

My post was just about disable updates.

I said XP as a example , so that you can see if that exist in W7 also.
control panel theres a flash player manager
and
flash video , right-click

i was talking about use the version 10.3 or 11.2 and disable the updates .
If that versions work ok , after disable the updates you are ok until adobe release a fix.

Other way to disable it is ,run (search for it) :
C:\WINDOWS\system32\FlashPlayerApp.exe

Your links don't seem to work.

I am using 10.3. I changed the option for updates to disable, but Adobe ignored it and updated anyhow. Another approach involved Secunia PSI, a code to handle updates. It also has an option to stop updates. That didn't work either.

So I have a nuisance of uninstalling 11.3 and installing 10.3 on a daily basis. Fortunately it only takes about 15 seconds, so I can live with it.

I'll give it a try, but I doubt if it will work. The problem is with the combination Windows 7 + Firefox + flash 11.3. Firefox can be either by itself or as rendering engine within Avant. In both cases the problem is the same.

There's a notice from Adobe regarding the problem at http://forums.adobe.com/message/4529383. One of the things it says in the notice is, "If you are interested in testing this build before it is publicly released, please send email to ccampbel@adobe.com."

Latest (happy?) event in this story. Adobe installed flash 11.3 overnight as usual, but did not remove flash 10.3. When I tried to get a streaming video it did not work, as usual.

However I disabled Flash 11.3 and streaming video then worked properly. This applied both to Firefox and to Avant with Firefox rendering. Each had to have Flash 11.3 disabled separately.

Slightly bad news. Adobe is back to its old ways. Flash 10.3 got removed and I had to go back to the old routine - uninstall 11.3 and install 10.3.

I have realplayer and I use it to download streaming videos. The problem is before realplayer comes into play. It is the combination Windows 7 - Firefox (or Avant - Firefox rendering) - Flash 11.3 only. Replace Firefox with Chrome or IE and the problem does not appear. Replace Flash 11.3 with Flash 10.3 (my solution) and the problem goes away. On my old machine I have Windows XP and the problem does not appear.

I have also encountered streaming videos which have built in download blocks. These will show up, except for the troublesome combination, even though they can't be downloaded by realplayer.

Post script: If you look for Adobe Flash player in CNET you will find that 11.3 is universally condemned (by users) for being buggy.

There are instructions from Mozilla for downgrading from Flash 11.3 to Flash 11.2 or Flash 10.3 at http://tinyurl.com/87em6y4.
