Mozilla Firefox Script not responding when using Flash Player

So this problem just occured lately when i launched up Firefox. I get a script on responding error message when i play a video (Which requires flash) i tried reinstalling firefox with a fresh new one, disabling any sort of virus protection, starting firefox in safe mode which disables all plugins, downgrading adobe flash, upgrading adobe flash. When i uninstall flash completely, youtube and other flash websites respond with no script error but i need flash to play the videos.

Here are some troubleshooting steps from Firefox

Warning Unresponsive script - What it means and how to fix it | Firefox Help

Try disabling hardware acceleration to rule it out

Forum Response - Disable hardware acceleration | Firefox Help

Always good to check plugins are up to date

A simple work around may be Noscript

NoScript - JavaScript/Java/Flash blocker for a safer Firefox experience! - what is it? - InformAction

Clearing cache and cookies for the offending sites is also a possibility.

Finally, a possibility to determine the error cause.

Last but not least, a reset
