Likely the upgrade broke your manual installation. You should install the flashplugin-nonfree package from non-free repo. Anyway be careful, you probably will need to enable manually when needed in Iceweasel, as it is disabled by default due to various security problems. Maybe they are now fixed but it was this before I remove it. To upgrade the plugin, issue: update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

I have upgraded from Wheezy to Jessie and my Adobe Flash Player in
Iceweasel stopped working:

$ iceweasel

(process:6255): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion
'sys_page_size == 0' failed

When on Wheezy, I installed it manually by just copying
libflashplayer.so to .mozilla/plugins .
It doesn't work anymore, why?


I prefer to avoid non-free, therefore I created a separate user for
libflashplayer.so which I downloaded from adobe.com. The page:
http://www.adobe.com/uk/software/flash/about/ shows that I am having the
latest version installed (

This is not just an upgrade problem, because on fresh Jessie simply
copying libflashplayer.so to .mozilla/plugins doesn't work either.


Installing 'flashplayer-mozilla' that is in Debian main will solve the flash problem.
