Anyone else having problems with the latest Flash?

Posted

Updated Flash and Java yesterday, and since then had problems with plug-in container closing etc.

Slowly started to disable add-on's first and then this morning disabled Flash because Chrome was having a similar problem.

No problems anymore and have enabled all add-on's...

Thoughts anyone?

Try to disable protected mode in the Flash player.

See:

Question owner

Tks cor-el. I tried to add the line to the flash file but stuffed it. Will just leave Flash disabled until a work around is found. I am willing to bet it is the protected mode addition that is causing the problem because as soon as enabled Flash again I started get the script stoppages and plug-in container problems again. Cheers

Question owner

small workaround for non geeks is to uninstall the problem child Flash and reinstall 10.3 which luckily I still have floating around.

Working again now but will watch to see if Adobe fix this problem quickly?

Question owner

Thanks johnathan6060. That worked a treat. Everything running fine now. Cheers.

I fixed this issue (after hours of trying & failing).

If you have Real Player (I'm talking about the stand alone media player, not the plug-in or add-on) run it. >

Click the RealPlayer icon in the top left corner >

Select preferences >

Go to the Download & Recording tab >

Deselect 'Enable Web Downloading & Recording for these installed browsers' option. (Firefox wasn't even listed here for me but I went ahead & disabled it anyway, & the problem was fixed in FF) >

Save the settings in Realplayer & close it. >

Restart Firefox & go to a page you were previously having problems with.

Hope someone finds this useful.
