Tested on the latest updated versions of Ubuntu, Fedora. CentOS and Manjaro (all 64 bit)

By default the Linux distos updater's install Firefox 52.3.0 (64 bit) and Adobe Flash Plugin 27.

Issue:   When visiting Flash heavy websites, whilst flash is active all locally installed media players (Totem, SMPlayer & VLC (although plays no sound)) load media but will not play.   As soon as the Flash website is closed, media playback starts.

Only workaround I can find:

Removing Adobe Flash Plugin 27 (.so plugin) and replacing with a previous version, eg version 26 (.so plugin) instead

I retried installing Adobe Flash Plugin 27 but problem re-occurred.  thought deduction I have concluded Flash Plugin 27 as the problem.   Is Adobe aware, when will a patched version to address this problem be released?

Some sort of forums setting.  Not sure.  We've had users ask about it, but haven't received a definitive answer on what it is.
