How to disable Protected Mode for Adobe Flash Player

Usually Flash Player hangs Firefox or other browsers.
This is usually un-avoidable as it just happens.
This is while you load pages that have rich flash content.
The only resort for you is to close the browser.

But by doing the following you can avoid the crashes!
Trust me, by disabling the Protected mode, it may do wonders. 

To disable Protected Mode, add the following line to your mms.cfg file located in:

Windows 32bit: C:\windows\system32\macromed\flash
Windows 64bit: C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash


If the mms.cfg file does not exist, create one using any standard text editor (e.g.. notepad)
Depending on your operating system, you might need to first save the mms.cfg file to a writable location (such as your documents or desktop folder) and then copy the file into the destination folder using Windows Explorer.
To re-enable Protected Mode, simply remove the line from the mms.cfg file.
