Firefox 56.0 (64-bit)

flash player 27.0.0

Strike Force Heroes 2 - Play it on Not Doppler

When using the rmb (reload) my keyboard locks and thus the character I am controlling doesn't move. The mouse movements (looking) still works, as does lmb & rmb. right clicking outside the flash window and then left clicking inside it disables the issue.

I saw a similar thread that was "assumed fixed" dated march of last year, I see no popup from the right click, it just freezes the keyboard.

As a workaround,...

Thanks.  We'll take a look.  My guess is that this is a Firefox change.  There's a lot of work happening over there lately around the context menu and focus stuff.

As a workaround, you might experiment with other browsers, or try the ESR version of Firefox.

As a workaround, you can basically use any other browser, including 32-bit Firefox.
