How can I fix this "Adobe two-version" problem, so only the latest version stays enabled, the old version stays DISABLED, and/or uninstall the old version?

Inserita

I went to my add-ons tab, and I DO, in fact, have two versions of shockwave flash, an 11.9...version, and a 13.9..., which, if I'm not mistaken, is the latest version. There is a "ask to activate, always activate, never activate" button for EVERY add-on. I clicked never activate on the older version, and closed the tab. I then tried to play a video off of the Web. It would not play, I tried another site with the same result, so I went back to my add-on tab, and the button for the older version had changed back to "always activate" by itself. It continues to repeat this, and WILL NOT stay on "never activate". Every few times I return to the add-ons page, THE NEW VERSION IS DISABLED, AS WELL AS THE OLD ONE. I've tried to uninstall the old version, but when I go through control panel, and bring up the folder contents, the old version isn't even there! I've done start, find, and typed in "Adobe", and the old version is NOT FOUND! Both versions keep changing back and forth on the activate button, and they both will disable on their own, no matter how many times I fix it! smh!!

Soluzione scelta

No worries, I was just getting started.

The Flash plugin is stored in this folder:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

The file names for the plugin used in Firefox have this pattern:

NPSWF32_13_0_0_206.dll

where the middle part (no bolded) is the plugin version number.

Adobe's updater should normally clean out old versions but if they are actively in use, it's possible that the updater is not able to remove them.

If you find the old file, try deleting it or moving it to the Desktop temporary.

Firefox may not realize immediately that the file is gone, but hopefully will detect that after the next time you exit and start it back up when it updates its plugin scan.

Any luck?

You may need to physically remove the unwanted plugin from disk.

Is this issue on your Android device or on a desktop operating system? If it's on desktop, what is your OS (e.g., Windows 7, 64-bit)?

Assuming this is a desktop Flash issue as there is no Flash 13 for Android. Use the Flash uninstaller tool then reinstall Flash from adobe.

then

to re-install

@jscher2000: I used the file path you sent, the older Flash was indeed there. I right-clicked it, and deleted it, and then went to one of the sites that I frequent, and watch videos there. For the record, NONE of the sites to which I refer are porn sites! So, I actually got a couple of videos to play, and this is a site where I have the MOST difficulty. Then, the videos stopped, and no more would play at this site. I went to my add-ons page, and THERE IT WAS AGAIN...the old version that I THOUGHT I had deleted. Even though it was disabled, my newest version, (the one I should be using) was also disabled. I left the old version disabled, enabled the new one, and went BACK to the site I was at before. No videos at all would play. I went BACK to my add-ons, and the new version had been disabled ON IT'S OWN, God knows how, and the old version was ENABLED! I guess I should have been MUCH LESS verbose, and just said, the two versions, EVEN THOUGH I HAD SUPPOSEDLY DELETED THE OLDER ONE, are disabling and enabling on their own, and changing the new one does no good, except VERY temporarily...for two or three videos, and then they will not play anymore. I do need to mention that the old version is still in my recycle bin, on the advice of my wife, (the computer geek here), in case I might need it for something in the future??? smh

That's a little nuts, for files to appear that you know you removed...

To check on the file locations, you can type or paste about:plugins in the address bar and press Enter. Use Find to skip to Shockwave Flash and see which version is where.


Sometimes the pluginreg.dat file becomes corrupted. You can remove it and have Firefox re-scan for plugins. As a side effect, any plugins you have disabled on the Add-ons page probably will be re-enabled, so you'll need to go back to that page one more time.

Open your current Firefox settings (AKA Firefox profile) folder using either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
  • Help menu > Troubleshooting Information

In the first table, click the "Show Folder" button.

Leaving that window open, switch back to Firefox and Exit (either "3-bar" menu button > "Power" icon, or File menu > Exit)

Pause while Firefox finishes its cleanup, then rename pluginreg.dat to something like pluginreg.old

Start Firefox up again. (If you want to restore your previous non-private session, use History > Restore Previous Session.)

When you return to the Add-ons page, any improvement?

@jscher2000: I'm not sure if I need to go through your procedure or not. I took the same file path that you first sent me earlier this afternoon, and deleted a dll file that was associated with version 11. I then went to the add-ons page, and it was different this time, showing an "options"button, an enable, disable, and one or two more, perhaps an "activate" button. Version 11 was disabled, version 13, enabled. I closed the add-ons page, went to a video site that I frequent, and, of course, it did not play.It just sat there loading, loading, ad nauseam. I went BACK to add-ons, and version 11 had completely DISAPPEARED! btw, here are some of the file names when I navigate your original path: Flash32_13_0_0_214.ocx, an Active X control, FlashInstall, a text document, flashplayer.xpt, an XPT document, FlashPlayerPlugin_13_0_0_214, an 1821kb Application, FlashPlayerUpdateService, a 252kb Application, FlashUtil32_13_0_0_214_ActiveX.dll:Application ext., FlashUtil32_13_0_0_214_ActiveX, 828kb Application, FlashUtil32_13_0_0_214_Plugin, 828kb Application, NPSWF32_13_0_0_214.dll, a 15.9Mb Application extension, plugin.vch, a 1.6Mb VCH file. Version 11, or anything to do with it, is gone, BUT, IT IS in my recycle bin, if that means anything. So there you have it. STILL TOTALLY SCREWED UP VIDEO PLAYBACK. Someone else from Mozilla support answered my inquiry, and suggested that I uninstall Flash and then re-install it. I checked the page that explains the procedure, and frankly, IT SCARES ME TO DEATH! If my wife knew that I was even THINKING ABOUT DOING THAT, she'd come at me with a knife!! LOL...no, really, she would! wtf??? SMH!!!

I don't want to provoke a knife attack...

Among the various files in the Flash folder, Firefox only uses the ones that start with NPSWF32, so you can ignore the others.

@jscher2000: Didn't mean to lose contact. I still don't have my playback problem solved, if you can believe that. I've downloaded the uninstaller / installer links with someones help that's on this forum, used them in the exact same order. It did nothing to help. However, I was in the process of attempting your solution. I made sure all browsers were closed; in fact, I went offline before this procedure. When I used find, and typed in Shockwave, it came back..."no search results". I recalled a path I had previously used, and had to use it instead of find, C:/ Acer/ Windows/SysWOW64/ Macromed/ and here there were files for Shockwave AND Flash. I opened Shockwave, says " this folder is empty". Flash Player and Flash Util plugin, Util32 Active X, NPSWF32_13_0_0_214.dll...all files appear correct, BUT why aren't there ANY files in the Shockwave folder? NONE of the buttons you describe in your steps to let Firefox "clean up" the pluginreg.dat file show in my window...if I am in the right window. My username is at the top, and it's drop-down is "3 button"+sign out. One says settings, but it doesn't take me to any "help", Trobleshooting info, "show folder", nor any way to exit Firefox or to start it back up. Settings goes to "edit settings", and has a list of checkboxes...all with something to do with threads in one aspect or another, and one concerning private messages. Sounds to me like I don't know what I'm doing, am on entirely the wrong Mozilla /Firefox page, and I'm NEVER, EVER going to get this damn video playback crap fixed once and for all. Some sites will let a video play, but they are rare. Vikings.com is the one that has me red-faced. NOTHING plays there. Except ads, of course. You can't get those to STOP.

There is no C:\Windows...I MUST take the path C:/Acer/Windows. That is the ONLY option I have on my Acer laptop. I don't understand why going through the Acer path has anything to do with any of my problems.

(2) If yes:

Okay, Shockwave Flash is the flash player plugin and you can ignore the others. Sites usually are very specific about how they want media played, and Flash-specific media will not play in QuickTime.

Does Flash run on Adobe's test page? https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

I have attached a screen shot of the kind of think you would expect to see during the animation and in the version detection box.

The animation DOES WORK, but, as I said, the Vikings.com website is where I cannot get ANY video to play AT ALL, but I don't know if their videos are FlashPlayer specific, or what type of player is needed to make their videos play, just that they won't playback. I do have the latest version installed, and it says that I do not need any updates.

Okay, good. In case one of your extensions is involved, could you test the Vikings site in Firefox's Safe Mode? That's a standard diagnostic tool to deactivate extensions and some advanced features of Firefox. More info: Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Help menu > Restart with Add-ons Disabled

Not all add-ons are disabled: Flash and other plugins still run

After Firefox shuts down, a small dialog should appear. Click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Reset).

Any difference?

The only extensions I have are an "add bookmark here", and an "inline Google definitions". That's it. Just the two. I don't think they have anything to do with Shockwave, right? Is starting in "safe mode" risky for someone that knows very, very little about computers? Even though I have no extensions for Shockwave and /or Flash, is starting in "safe mode" still something that I need to consider?

Those two extensions do not sound as though they would affect video in any way.

The Vikings site displays video from the NFL network (nfl.com, nflcdn.com). It seems to require a script from googletagservices.com. Can you think of any reason that those might be blocked?

Or is it possible you are blocking "third party cookies" that need to be exchanged to make this complex arrangement work?

Best would be to uninstall all Flash plugins and resinstall the Flash player for Firefox and the ActiveX version for IE.
