I have erased the nspluginwrapper i686 and 64bit
now there is no problem . only in firefox4.
flashplayer 32 and 64 bit
I noticed flickering and white boxes in flash (films, but even other graphics)
The flickering etc. disappeared after deinstalling nspluginwrapper. Did not notice a regression since then.
For me, it looks like a refresh problem. @neo32: does uninstalling nspluginwrapper solve your problem?
While I'm not neo32, I'm having the same problem with the white boxes and uninstalling nspluginwrapper solves it.
Curiously, the Firefox build from Mozilla does work well with nspluginwrapper, as opposed to Remi's and Spot's rpms.
im neo32 and datahal42 . Eagleton is another person, I solve your problem
in the forum.
Matthias Runge : does uninstalling nspluginwrapper solve your problem.?
yes. the problem is nspluginwrapper over firefox4.
I delete it. and works well.
1- my system is 64 bit , eagleton 32 bit
2- FF4 64-bit binary mozilla with 64 bit flashplayer beta ,there is no problem to enter Al Jazeera (eagleton problem) but to enter with nspluginwrapper and 32bit
flashplayer yes. (the only eagleton problem is to enter al Jazeera)
3-the problems with flash applets and the ads disappear when you delete
4- the problem happens in mozilla binary, spots, remi, 32 and 64 bit etc.
5 - ubuntu debian and gentoo have the same problem, I believe that all (whith nspluginwrapper.
6 - There are not many reports, because they use adblock plus:))
7 - yes. I am absolutely sure that the problem is the nspluginwrapper
I think the problem may be in seed...........
datahal42 = neo. so there is no confusion :)
seed + nspluginwrapper.
I know that sounds stupid, but I think there is something that bothers with gecko
(In reply to comment #7)
> I think the problem may be in seed...........
you mean gjs? If not, what do you mean?
yes, I think the problem is there, I'm not sure. but it is a good start
to find the solution.
the problem is in java script interpreter, just look at the problems.
I have no time to find the solution, but it is an interesting problem.
if I have reason, you can send me an email.
I use Fedora 15, firefox-4.0-3.fc15.x86_64. I uninstall nspluginwrapper - both 32 and 64 bit version -, and uninstall 32 bit flash-plugin.
I installed 64 bit flash plugin: http://pkgs.org/fedora-15/atrpms-bleeding-x86_64/flash-plugin-10.2-1.x86_64.rpm.html
Restart my browser, and work it correctly. :)
(Sorry my very bad english...)
is not a solution . flash square need synchronization problem with ff4
e.g (metacafe) no matter if it is adobe , atrpms , etc ,
without nspluginwrapper can not go forward or backward
only solution for 64bit system that solves all problem now . install ff4 32bit no matter what, whitout xulrunner2 + 32 bit dependencies.
and delete ""nspluginwrapper""
(In reply to comment #17)
> only solution for 64bit system
rpm -q firefox flash-plugin
My flash plugin native 64 bit application.
> and delete ""nspluginwrapper""
I uninstalled it.
(You and I say the same.)
yes , but xulrunner2 have problems with applications including f15 e.g. chmsee for f15.

c) nspluginwrapper is very complicated technology with a very weak upstream, which unfortunately we have to keep around, because there is no supported 64bit flash-plugin (the one you see suggested from http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/square/ was last updated in February and before that almost half a year before, given the pace of security and other kind of updates in flash, it is not something we want to rely on)
We are trying to do our best considering the circumstances.
http://gizmodo.com/#!5659576/watch-the-sikorsky-x2-breaking-the-worlds-helicopter-speed-record mentioned in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=603397 is a very mild example of what I see sometimes on other sites.
CNN video is usually much worse (e.g., http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/africa/04/07/libya.war/index.html?hpt=T1), http://www.fox.com/ doesn't allow me to run any videos from here (but even their flash menu on the top shows this issue as well), http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world/jan-june11/france2_04-07.html is pretty bad (black rectangle over the middle of the video)
The problem seems to be limited to videos. For example flash games (e.g., http://www.girlsgogames.com/game/cinnamon_roll_brunch.html ... yes, I have a small daughter, why do you ask? ;)) seem to work without any problems.

64 bit flash player is security risk, but workaround.

yes, thats a big problem
It appears this is actually a Firefox bug (or if not bug an oddity). They request a NP_GetValue variable through NPP_GetValue to determine whether or not to apply a Flash-specific quirk. I've worked around it with this patch.
nspluginwrapper-1.3.2-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
nspluginwrapper-1.3.2-1.fc15 contains the fix from https://github.com/davidben/nspluginwrapper/commit/ca88c7b1a3d2b02b238e0520e15b02f1b89af1b5
This version can't solved a problem. (Flickering rectangles.)
Which page are you seeing flickering rectangles on? I'm not able to reproduce them on the URLs in this report.
Look at the end of the page.

Flash flickering example
I tested this a 32 bit machine. If I use nspluginwrapper, flickering; and if I don't use nspluginwrapper, no flicker.
Hrm. It works for me here, and that looks somewhat like the bug the patch fixed (well, worked around; at some point I'll send a patch to Mozilla to fix the quirk on their end). Flash interprets some coordinates funny so Firefox and Chrome both have a Flash-specific quirk that offsets them. The way Firefox was detecting Flash missed nspluginwrapper; they queried a variable wrong, but Flash happened to let it through anyway. As a result, some drawing ends up in the wrong place.
Are you sure you are running with 1.3.2? It appears to only be a "pending" update for now, so you may need to pull it manually? (I'm not totally familiar with how Fedora's updates work.) You should see something like
*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** WARNING: browser requested NP_GetValue variable via NPP_GetValue.
on the terminal where you start Firefox 4.
Oh, I'm very sorry! I changed from 64 bit flash-plugin to 32 bit flash-plugin, and I installed nspuginwrapper OLD version.
Now I tested this problem a NEW - nspluginwrapper-1.3.2-1.fc15 - version, and solved this problem. Thank you!
(Sorry, my comment 28 is false.)

I'm in fedora 14 x64, with nspluginwrapper-1.3.2-1.fc14 /flash-plugin-10.3.181.22 installed and firefox 4.0.1 x64 from fedora spot repo. Lately, firefox has been very slow, and i think this happen since the last flash and nspluginwrapper update. Some white boxes and flickering are solved now, but firefox gets stuck (before it doesn't) and viewing atop, this shows some xulrunner-bin peaks of 50% cpu usage or more every 10 seconds or so. For example, while i was writing this comment, every 10-15 seconds firefox gets stuck for few seconds (3-5). I get dozens of this warning messages too:
*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** WARNING: browser requested NP_GetValue variable via NPP_GetValue.
With this behaviour, firefox is unusable
(firefox 4.0.1 from remi is the same)
I didn't get this with firefox 4.0.0 , but my update to 4.0.1 coincided with nspluginwrapper and flash update.
The warning message is harmless. It's a bug in Firefox I had to workaround to fix Flash in Firefox 4. I believe they've fixed it upstream in the branch for 5.0 or 6.0.
Could you run Firefox with NPW_DEBUG=1 NPW_LOG=nspluginwrapper.log and attach the resulting nspluginwrapper.log?

nspluginwrapper debug log
I recently suffered this problem, it has not been fixed AFAICS.
This is really weird. David, when I run "NPW_DEBUG=1 NPW_LOG=nspluginwrapper.log firefox", the (wrapped) flash plugin doesn't work, and nspluginwrapper.log only gets a line saying "*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** plugin_exit". But when I run it without the NPW_LOG option, I get a lot of output in the console (which I have cutted and pasted and attached here). BTW, I'm using nspluginwrapper-1.3.2-1.fc15.x86_64/i686.
Even more weird is what is happening in my system: flash was working just fine, without any problems, using the official adobe plugin and nspluginwrapper. I decided to cleanup some of my personal hidden directories ($HOME/.*): .kde, .local, .cache, .config, /var/tmp/kdecache-diego...and when I started a new session flash was not working anymore. I didn't touch anything related to firefox and/or nspluginwrapper or anything in the rest of the system.
i checked your video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdCrZfTkG1c&feature=relate
any problem , any issues for f15 64bit, but now i use nsplug 1.4.2 for anothers issues.
look this site:
