Hi,

I updated to the newes chrome-browser.

I daily play an online-game which needs flash.

Since now, I get asked to activate flash for this website as usual.

New is, that the flash-plaugin then asks for a right-click to activate the plugin. I do it, but it does not change.

So since the newes google-chrome installation, flash is broken on my linux-gentoo-installation.

Does anybody other face similar?

Alex

Version 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Confirmed -- flash broken.

Since this isn't compiled from source, I am guessing this isn't Gentoo specific.

I'm setting up a new workstation, and I'm having the same problem. At least, the symptoms are the same. The weird thing is that opera (opera-60) is showing the same thing, even though opera's open source while google-chrome bundles flash as a binary. A slightly older but very similar workstation does not have this problem with opera-58.

I just tried installing google-chrome on the older workstation to see if the problem would be present on a machine where opera can run flash just fine. I haven't synced the old workstation in 60 days, so it still sees google-chrome-73 as the most updated. It installed and basically runs fine, but when I try to run flash it says that my flash player is out of date. Rolling back to an earlier version may not be viable.

firefox-bin seems to be able to run flash. I know this isn't a solution, but a workaround for now. If anyone has any ideas I'm happy to test them out on my workstation.

You can try "google-chrome --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox" in CLI

If you post advice to disable a security feature, you should clearly warn that this reduces security.

I did an Update to 74.0.3729.169 and nothing changed.

I have debian 9 in virtual box player 15 on my windows 10 laptop. I installed google chrome 74.0.3729.169 there too, and there chrome with flash works.

I then backuped my settings in /home/user/.config/google-chrome/ and deleted all. started with a complete new profile. The same error.

I reverted back to my old profile and so far nothing chnaged.

Any ideas?

Thats it. I added "--disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox" and now it works again in Gentoo!

Should we post a bug for that somewhere?

Has anyone tested that version under some other distro to see if the problem follows the version or the distro?

Since seccomp is involved, it might follow the kernel version rather than the browser version or overall distribution packages. Perhaps newer or older kernels handle the seccomp filter differently, such that one successfully blocks Flash and the other fails to block it.

That caannot be. in debian 9 where it works with the latest chrome version an 3.16 kernel ist active.

On my Gentoo-Box I did not change the kernel for a long time and 3.18 is active.

Could anybody try with anewer 4.x or 5.x kernel?

3.16 is not 3.18, so the kernel version skew question remains.

I can confirm that Flash is correctly inoperable here, on a 5.1.x kernel.
