System: NetBSD mirage 9.0_RC1 NetBSD 9.0_RC1 (GENERIC) #11: Thu Jan 2 14:19:17 JST 2020 tsutsui@mirage:/s/netbsd-9/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
With firefox-71.0 and adobe-flash-player-,
/usr/pkg/lib/firefox/plugin-container binary dumps core
on executing adobe-flash-player plugin binary via nspluginwrapper.

- firefox 71.0 plugin-container also dumps core on NetBSD/amd64 9.0_RC1
- it works fine with the previous firefox-70.0.1 from pkgsrc-2019Q3

'pkg_add firefox adobe-flash-player' and browse flash pages,
for example:

Not yet.

Note building firefox with "debug" or "debug-info" options fails
on NetBSD/i386 9.0_RC1 due to memory (maybe VA space) shortage..

Over to Firefox maintainer.

State-Changed-From-To: open->closed
State-Changed-When: Sun, 18 Apr 2021 16:06:41 +0000
adobe-flash-player was EOLed and firefox has dropped the flash support.
Note at least adobe-flash-player- still works with
pkgsrc/www/firefox68 or nspluginplayer in pkgsrc/www/nspluginwrapper.
