are you sure those videos are flash videos?

What video sites require flash nowadays and don't serve HTML5 video? The easiest probably is to remove/uninstall flash so the browser picks a sensible alternative.

Me personally, I would avoid flash player as much as I can, and remove it from my system and from Firefox. In fact, on many sites (on majority, I think), Firefox will play videos without flash player -- fullscreen too, -- and without crashes. I had actual need to use flash maybe a couple of times for the last year or two :)

If you absolutely can't live without flash player, then I would suggest installing google chrome, which has flash player built-in.

sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled google-chrome
sudo dnf install google-chrome-stable

And then use Firefox for your normal day-to-day browsing, and use google chrome specifically when you need to use flash.

for "desktop" environments, cinnamon is a very good choice. For touchdisplays , gnome is far superior.

It doesn't matter the Desktop Environment, you should not be using Flash!

I totally agree with @florian.

And, @wisner, I use gnome and I don't have op's problem. I don't think you answer is very good or informative in this case.
