Support URL: adobe flashplayer not working with firefox | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support   recommends installing the 32 bit version of Adobe Flash Player, but I have been unable to do that with your process.  The version they mentioned is: 11x32_mssa_aih

The symptom I have experienced when trying to view a slideshow is that the slides are not displayed and the 'info' is squished:

This is a sample page: Hooded Merganser – Bird of the Day – Wild Bird Company Saturday Bird Walk 09.17.16

Help Please!

The link you reference is from 7 years ago when we used to offer separate 32- and 64-bit installer.  Now we only have a single installer that supports both 32- and 64-bit systems.  Using Firefox, go to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer to download the latest version of the installer (note this page contains optional third party software offerings).

This problem behavior began in recent months.  It behaves appropriately with seldom used Internet Explorer:

I am hoping that a response on another forum:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1158449?fpa=1

may aid you in helping me to find a lasting solution:

Firefox's Web Console lists numerous errors (at least one for each image) referring to the site's Content Security Policy (CSP). Since the requests are made through Flash, I'm not sure how to diagnose that further, but one workaround would be to temporarily set Firefox to ignore the site's CSP. This reduces your protection against alien scripts possibly being run by the site, so it's a good idea to turn it back on again when you are no longer experiencing this problem.

Screenshot attached for comparison.

Here are the steps:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste .csp and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.csp.enable preference to switch the value from true to false

I think you'll need to reload the viewer and then it should work.

When you're done, you can double-click security.csp.enable again to switch it back to true.

If you are a regular Flickr user, could you report this problem to them?

Yeah, in general, the browser will mediate our network requests.  If the browser doesn't like it, we're not getting the content back.  In general, we suppress error messages in the release target of Flash Player.  The ActionScript Debugger variant of Flash Player may provide runtime errors with more detail about the failing requests, but I agree that your diagnosis is in the right neighborhood.

Awesome, it sounds like Flickr solved their CSP configuration issue.  Glad it's working!
