    flash player stops unless I keep moving the mouse

    Trying to watch flash movies, etc. they will stop periodically unless I move the mouse. Uploaded the
    latest version of the player 11.9.900, but still get the same problem. It's a real pain in the . . .rist.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Have you changed anything else in your setup recently?

    If this is a wireless connection, have you moved any other wireless devices which could interfere with the computer connection?

    Thought I'd seen a specific patch for that recently, may have been fo W8/8.1 though, where Flash updates are part of Windows Updates. If you're on an earlier OS, try fully uninstalling Flash, using the Flash uninstall tool, rebooting and installing the latest version again (clean, direct download links here: http://securitygarden.blogspot.co.uk...-security.html).

    I found out that this only happens in Firefox and not in Chrome, but flash works on my work computer in both Chrome and Firefox . . .
