I'm still getting line artifacts. I have version 27.0.0.170. And I'm still getting bugs on full screen. I see the whole screen but there is line artifacts.

UPDATE:

So there is a way to semi fix it with the current version.

1. Update your graphics card drivers


2. Turn off hardware acceleration settings in both global settings in flash and in Firefox. (mainly Firefox)

3. Clear your history and cache

4. Turn back on hardware acceleration in Flash Global control settings and then turn on hardware acceleration on in Firefox. Turn the setting to 4.


This should solve it temporarily. I can't say when the lines and pixel breaking will start up again but it probably will start screen tearing again. However if you have version 27 it will cause interference with YouTube. Rolling back to version 26 helps the conflict setting with YouTube Playback, but Crunchyroll playback will be hit or miss. The pixel tearing can happen again at any time. Also it depends on the video.If the video was uploaded using version 27 rolling back won't help. If it was using 26 maybe. I think it's an overall Flash problem. There are still pixel breaks happening when rolling back. Crunchyroll needs to move away from Flash.

If you still have the full screen issue download and install firefox 64 bit may solve it. I had 32 bit and changed to 64 now I have full screen back with newest Flash player.

I had the same issue after flash-update, Firefox 57 (64 bit). Hardware acceleration makes fullscreen work, but it takes a long time to fullscreen and there are artifacts (not a hardware issue). There's no way in hell I'm going to run a vulnerable version of flash to get this shit to work properly and today I'm asked to download a flash 27.0 "update" when trying to play any video, I unsubscribed instead. Good riddance.

My work-around no-longer works (Firefox considers that version of Flash too old to be allowed).

IIRC, what I eventually found worked was to completely uninstall Adobe Flash (64-bit), then discovered there was a 'hidden' 32-bit version of Adobe Flash that Windows had no uninstaller for (and may not have been updating!), so I had to delete it's files manually (from "Program Files (x86)"), and then finally ONLY install the 64-bit version of Adobe Flash.

It seems they stopped testing the 32-bit version of Adobe Flash with Firefox since Firefox v55, which defaults to the 64-bit version of Firefox.
