Problem with Firefox/Flash

No idea where this came from or why..

For a couple of weeks now I've not been able to view any flash video whilst using Firefox, was just getting a black screen.. as of a couple of days ago I'm now getting an Install Flash Player etc message for any site that requires it.

Thing is all Flash seems to work absolutely fine in Chrome (rather not use it if I don't have to) I've tried pretty much everything I can think of to fix things in Firefox but so far have not had any success.. disabling/removing all plugins, re-installing also tried re-installing Flash, but the installer get's to around 50% & says Firefox must be closed to continue (it is) I did check the processes & there were several Firefox ones running, which I stopped long enough (they restart after a couple of seconds??) to enable the Flash installation to continue.. but I'm still getting the install Flash messages.

Everything else works fine & I haven't installed/uninstalled, updated or deleted any apps or hardware for quite a while.

If anyone could shed some light on this I'd be extremely grateful
