Having 2 Shockwave Flash Plugin... How do I remove the other one?

Posted

On my Add-ons Manager, under the Plugins tab, I have 2 Shockwave Flash plugin... Shockwave Flash 11.9.900.117 and Shockwave Flash 8.0.22.0 I think I know why I have the other older version of Flash... It is because I recently installed Macromedia Flash 8... However, what I want is to remove the Shockwave Flash 8.0.22.0 plugin on Firefox without completely uninstalling it from my computer... is that possible?

I moved the file NPSWF32.dll from the path C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash to another location, and it did the trick!

1 question though, what is that file? is that the plugin file of Flash 8? By moving it to another location, does it have other effects except for not showing up in Firefox plugins?
