    Flash 11.3.x. beta available

    Flash 11.3.300.214 is available, http://www.filehippo.com/

    It includes Protected Mode for Firefox:

    "Protected Mode for Firefox — Flash Player Protected Mode is a new security enhancement designed to limit the impact of attacks launched from malicious SWF files against Adobe Flash Player when running in Firefox 4.0+ on Windows Vista and higher. This feature is comparable to the Flash Player Protected Mode in Google Chrome browser, Protected Mode in Adobe Reader, and Office 2010 Protected View", http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11-3/

    Protected mode for Firefox is certainly a good feature. Can anyone comment yet on the stability of the beta?

    Very buggy, indeed!

    Tested on Firefox 11.0 and, some web-sites with embedded videos [similar to youTube] wouldn't play at all. Reverted back to Flash 11.2 and the videos loaded and played flawlessly.

    I have found no problems at all, using 11.3 with Firefox Beta and IE 9. YouTube and TED work well.

    YouTube videos play well without any problems. It's other web-sites with videos that won't play at all.
    I don't recall all the sites from the top of my head but I think dailymotion would be one of those sites.

    Thanks.

    I personally would not run anything Adobe beta other than in virtual machine nor do I condone threads advising users that this may be a feasable operation :ouch:

    It is clearly stated to be BETA software, and users should realise and accept implications therein...
    Download page clearly states:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11-3.html

    Not necessarily a recommendation...more a notification. :)

    No problem with Dailymotion in my case.

    I have had occasional crashes of the 11.3 beta plugin in FF (12 beta). They are "solved" when the affected pages are reloaded. So far this crashes are tolerable for me, I have had similar experiences with other Flash betas.
