    It is hit and miss with me. I use Firefox with Flash and with 4.1.2 never has any issues for the most part it worked fine now Firefox crashed a lot and just closes but then I can open it back up and it seems to be fine for a while. I hope Firefox can put out an update or maybe 4.2.1 will come along soon to address all the bugs from 4.2.

    Mobile flash is and has been dead for a while now, this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Adobe pulled the plug and said they wouldn't be updating it for Jellybean 4.1, let alone 4.2. Yes it still worked if you sideloaded it on 4.1, and then 4.1.1 and 4.1.2.. but it was getting buggier and not being supported anymore. It was only a matter of time given how Android progresses before flash would stop working altogether. Look at all the other apps that don't work when a new version of Android is released because they need to be updated. It's only natural

    It works sometimes and then crashes for no reason worked better before the 4.2 update though.

    How can my tablet replace my PC if it does work with flash? There is still a lot of websites that I go to daily that use flash based videos. This is no bueno, folks.

    I never expected my 7 inch tablet to replace my computer. It serves its purpose, which is honestly little, lol. Again though.. this has been known to be happening for many, many months. Should not be a surprise to anyone.

    You may have never expected, but if Google does, they better/should rectify it. I personally, opened up to tablets when full tilt poker available online via the web browser with my blackberry playbook until homeland security shut them down. Now, however, I can do everything I need on my nexus 7, except see flash comfortably.

    Flash is a dead horse just let it die. Google has moved on and those that complain about the lack of Flash should do the same.

    Flash works just fine using xScope browser . I tried several flash demos with no problem. Firefox did a lot of crashing.

    Just tested Flash in Firefox Beta (the latest build dated the 15th, NOT the one from the 8th - I know, Firefox is in the future now!). Everything I tried worked just fine.

    What sites are you trying Flash on?

    I used Monoface (monoface) and while rather pointless it works just fine.

    Wow, I've just tried Firefox beta and the performance was actually the best out of all the browsers I have. Note: I just tested it for a few minutes.

    Browsers stop on abc.Com. I can barely browse anything now if there is flash content on a page.

    there is something called as compatibility. when most major OS version releases there will be some compatibility with apps and developer usually update the apps to fix it.

    In this case flash has this issue and since Adobe abandoned it there is no way to fix it.

    another example is this http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...yone-else.html
    that doesnt mean google deliberately broke HBO

    Play store. It was just released, so try going into the details screen and backing out a few times.

    Just went to ABC and watched a few commercials and the beginning of a show or two, all on Firefox beta using flash. No major performance problems, no hitches.

    I just tried Firefox beta Nov 15. It's working with flash in a limited fashion. No crashes in my limited time with it

    As I noted and was repeated again, when an OS upgrades, a developer must keep their app updated or you'll see things start to behave badly or just plain not work at all. It's not up to Google to update Flash, they don't own it. Adobe does and they made it very clear they are killing mobile Flash. Google's job is to keep improving Android and making it more awesome, not to worry about maintaining compatibility with one dead app.

    I don't believe Google ever expected the Nexus 7 to be a computer replacement for the general public. It's a niche product. It serves a specific purpose (or a number of them). And while for some people I guess it could be your primary computer, that's just impractical for the vast majority of the computing world.

    I'm still trying to sort out how the OP came up with the title for this thread.

    "Google deliberately wrecked Flash support in 4.2?"

    Aside from the fact that what 2defmouze said is spot on, why on earth would Google deliberately have wrecked Flash support? Did Ford purposefully make the Pinto so that it would explode?

    Is this sort of thing all for the entertainment value of the manufacturer/publisher?

    Especially when Flash is running just as well in 4.2 as it did in 4.1.2, and 4.1.1, and even back on my 2.3.4-based Thunderbolt.
