I haven't had any problems since setting

 

media.mediasource.webm.enabled;false

 

i run nightly so YMMV, but I get 1080p60fps on youtube without issue, and have for a while. I run nightly.

I still regularly get stuttery playback trying to run 720p (or above), where Flash videos run at 1080 without issue. Hopefully there are improvements still to filter down from the nightlys.

 

I think it may just block versions 203 and below.

Ah so the article SHOULD have read "Mozilla blocks OLD versions of Flash by default". Never let the facts get in the way of a scare story eh :rolleyes:

All the latest flash exploits the last couple of weeks came about because a hacking team got hacked

 

http://www.csoonline.com/article/2943968/data-breach/hacking-team-hacked-attackers-claim-400gb-in-dumped-data.html

 

This has lead to massive amounts of data being dumped on a public server and malware writers and the goodies alike have had a field day. 

 

You can expect more exploits such as the one below in the next few days

That was the last straw for me.

I removed flash player and have spent the afternoon changing my homepage widgets to non-flash required versions, checked my popular websites, played with FF and have deemed I can now live without flash player.

So as of now, I am flash-free.  Hoo-ray!

(let's see how long that lasts)

bad idea from me :-))

 

 

from firefoxcommunity:

 

the fixes in Firefox 39.0.3 vulnerability has extremm critical because this allows attackers to access files on your system. And this vulnerability is already being actively exploited to steal login information.

Like so many updates of big software with a ton of features (video games included) updating to fix security holes or add new features will sometimes introduce new bugs.
