Shockwave Flash Crashes In Google Chrome -No More(Solved) !!
This crash had been disturbing me for a while.No more son of a crash !!
What Is The Problem ?
When trying to browse a Flash-based website e.g. Facebook games, YouTube or use tools like Google Mail (which also rely on Flash) in Google Chrome, the Flash plugin crashes with a message saying:“The following plugin has crashed: Shockwave Flash“.
What Does That Mean?
Ignore the reference to Shockwave – the error message ‘the following plugin has crashed: Shockwave Flash’ means that the Adobe Flash Player plugin has crashed – it has nothing to do with Adobe Shockwave Player which is a separate program.
What Causes The Crashes?
As I noted recently in updating Adobe Flash, Google Chrome already includes an integrated version of Flash Player which is automatically updated by Chrome – there is normally no need to download the standalone version of Flash Player which is intended for non-IE users (primarily Firefox).
However, if Firefox or a similar web browser is (or has ever been) installed on your computer, then you have likely alsoinstalled the standalone version of Flash for Firefox and other web browsers – and this would include Chrome.
Therefore Chrome tries to use two versions of Flash Player – its own version built into Chrome and the standalone Adobe version you installed for Firefox/others. Having both versions active often causes ‘the following plugin has crashed: Shockwave Flash’ error message because they may conflict with each other.
Note: just to make things slightly more confusing, Chrome 19 also reintroduced the experimental PepperFlash plugin – this is still under testing and should be left disabled.
How To Fix It
Type about:plugins into the website address bar at the top and press the ENTER key to display Chrome’s Plugins page
Look down the list of Plugins for ‘Flash’ – if it says ‘Flash (3 files)’ you do have both versions of Flash installed (and PepperFlash) – this may cause Chrome to crash when accessing Flash-based websites
Click on the ‘+ Details’ link at the top right of the Plugins page to expand the list of all Plugins
Scroll down the list to find the Flash plugins – you should now see the full details of the Flash plugins which may display three versions of Flash as in the example below:
Flash Plugins (including the disabled Pepperflash)
Look at the ‘Location:’ of each version – the integrated Chrome version is in (…Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application etc) and the standalone Adobe (formerly Macromedia) version is in the …Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash etc directory.
Click on ‘Disable’ just under the Location of the Chrome version to disable it (and it will become greyed out).Only the Adobe version should be enabled.Rest all disabled (grayed)
Ensure that the standalone Adobe version is enabled – if it is disabled (grayed out) click the ‘Enable’ link just under its Location to enable it) then close the Plugins tab
Download and save to your computer the latest Adobe standalone version of Flash from the Adobe website for free.
Close Chrome and then install the newest standalone version of Flash you just downloaded. The recent Flash 11.2 version offers the option of automatic silent updates – recommended to keep it up to date automatically in future.
Finally, start Chrome and visit the Adobe Flash Player test page to check that Flash is now properly installed and working Ok.
