Flash player won't work after a successful download

About my Mac:
OS X version 10.8.4
1.3 GHz
Safari: version 6.0.5
I have installed and unistalled flash player several times, and even restarted my computer. I followed all the steps to do so correctly, but the Flash Player won't work at all. Youtube and other websites give me error messages when I try to watch a video. They say "missing plug-in".
I really can't seem to find the problem.
(For what this info is worth: I just got my computer a couple days ago)

How to perform a "clean install" of Flash Player in Mac OS X
Give that a shot.

  • Flash player: won't work after downloading..

    Hello everyone!
    The Adobe Download Manager states that the "installation complete."  But I'm unable to find it anywhere in my pc. When I click on the Adobe icon on my PC, it takes me back to this site to download.
    What am I doing wrong?

  • Adobe Flash Player 11 NOT working after several attempts to download, uninstall, & reinstall

    I have problems with Adobe Flash Player 11 NOT working after several attempts to download, then uninstall, & re-install. 
    I uninstalled the previous versions of Adobe Flash Player from my computer PRIOR to attempting to install the new 11 version, so now I'm unable to view videos, etc., 
    I'm using Windows Vista 32 bit, Internet Explorer 9.0 (which I closed when I got error messages during Adobe Flash Player 11 Installation.  I've  disabled my AVG -Virus also during the installation of Flash Player 11.   
    FYI, I'm not computer savvy so the YouTube video by Adobe Tech was too complicated to follow AND I'm unable to view  (DUH!) it since I have no Flash Player program installed (doesn't make sense!) .
    Thanks for keeping it simple (KISS for me).

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling some 30 times now ..rebooting, you name it.
    I haven't been able to use flash since Adobe kindly shoved that latest update down my computer's throat.
    Right after getting the 'successful' installation message I restart IE9 ..go to my channel on youtube and immediately get the message:
    The Adobe Flash Player is required for video playback.
    Get the latest Flash Player
    I tried Chrome and on two or three it worked but then even after closing out of them ..Chrome slowed down to a crawl and finally informed me that Flash had stopped working.
    This has entirely wasted 3 nights of my time. It is 2:30 am and I should have had at least 2hours sleep already to rise at 6:30 but no, thanks this I'm still up and no doubt millions of other computer users are having just as much fun.. Everyone I know that allowed the updates to install ..is having the same problem ..Chrome/IE9/Firefox ...you can truly call it Adobe's Universal Cluster ...
    I live with Adobe. At work we have 6 fully Adobied LR4/CS5 & 6/InDesign workstations. I'm a photographer using nothing but Adobe products and quite frankly I feel this is the worst treatment you have ever given your customers.
    Please stop the CYA and just fix the damm thing! I realize you didn't write it Chris but surely you can get Adobe management to address this instead of just trying to get their users to try and debug it for the airheads that released it. Has anyone stopped to consider the financial damage being done due to videos not playing the ads that support the sites and no doubt stream revenue to Adobe? These guys have rolled the online experience back 5 years minimum and Adobe will probably pay the price for it. Re-issue a working version and go back to the drawing board!

  • Macbook air adoble flash player doesn't work after installation

    macbook air adobe flash player doesn't work after installation

    If you're sure you've installed the latest version of Flash, take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test. For a "missing plug-in" error, start with Step 7. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Step 1
    You might have to log out or reboot before a Flash update takes effect.
    Step 2
    In the Safari preference window, select
    Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data
    Close the window. Then select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.
    Step 3
    If you're only having trouble with YouTube videos, log in to YouTube and load this page. You may see a link with the text "Leave the HTML5 Trial." If so, click that link.
    Step 4
    If you get a warning of a "blocked" or "outdated" plug-in, then from the menu bar select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Check Now. Quit and relaunch the browser.
    If the warning persists, triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
    Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open. Inside it, there should be a file named "XProtect.meta.plist". If that file is missing and you know why it's missing, restore it from a backup or copy it from another Mac running the same version of OS X. Otherwise, reinstall OS X.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
    Step 5
    Open this folder as in Step 4:
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Delete the following item, or anything with a similar name, if present:
    Flash Player (failing).plugin  
    You may be prompted for your login password.
    Step 6
    Re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from the domain "get.adobe.com". Don't click a link from any other website, including this one, because you can't trust links. They may be an attempt to trick you into installing malware masquerading as Flash. Type the address into the browser window. Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    Step 7
    If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked
    Allow (or Enable) plug-ins
    Then click the button marked
    Manage Website Settings...
    if present and make sure that the website is not blocked for Flash.
    Step 8
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.

  • Flash player won't work or download. It says it no longer supports power pcs. I am running 10.5.8 on my ibook G4. Seem to have tried everything. i.e. chrome, firebird, archived flash players, etc. All not supported. Any insight???

    Flash player won't work or download. It says it no longer supports power pcs. I am running 10.5.8 on my ibook G4. Seem to have tried everything. i.e. chrome, firebird, archived flash players, etc. All not supported. Any insight??? It started when I tried to upgrade current flash player and it said I needed to uninstall current version, which I did, and then it wouldn't download the current one giving me the not supported story! Please help!!!!!!

    Hi Andy, that is correct, they don't support PPC Macs anymore.
    You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
    Download this if you haven't...
    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp10.1.102.6 4_and_9.0.289.0archive.zip
    Once downloaded if it doesn't unzip automatically the double click on that file.
    Look for the fp10.1.102.64_and_9.0.289.0archive folder, open it, look for the Flash Player folder & open and look for 101r10264 folder & open it, double click on the flashplayer101r102_64_ubmac.dmg file, choose the Install Adobe Flash Player file to install... they don't make it easy!
    Or smaller here...
    Stand alone player...
    Or free 3rd party...

  • IE 11--Flash Player won't work

    I have just installed Internet explorer 11, and my flash player won't work.  I have uninstalled and re-installed it,  and unchecked Active-X, and enabled shockwave.   Any suggestions please?????

    I could not get this problem solved.  Uninstalled IE 11, and reinstalled IE9, and things are working fine.

  • Flash Player does not work after steps to resolution

    I am using Windows 8.1 and flash player will not work.  I have "enabled" and removed Active X control as per instructions but it still does not work.

    8.1 means Ie11... and that means...
    "User-Agent Strings"
    That doesn't mean a lot, I'm sure, but it's the root of your problems, and Flash Player has nothing to do with it.
    Microsoft "rewrote" the User-Agent Strings for the abomination they call their latest and greatest browser. User-Agent Strings are what websites use to identify the browser you're using and provide the proper content for it's browser engine, like ActiveX stuff, and Flash or HTML5 video. Thanks to the geniuses in Redmond, WA, the User-Agent Strings for IE11 (which has a Trident engine), ID it as either "Gecko" (Firefox) or "Webkit" (Chrome). Problem is: when the site the directs to the content for one of these two engines, the Trident engine in IE can't intepret it and the site then sees IE as an "unidentified" browser.
    The problem with an unidentified browser is that the plug-ins in that browser aren't recognized either, so even though you're up to date, it says you need the latest Flash Player when you use IE11. YouTube... has converted to HTML5 video so if it doesn't detect Flash Player, it can display HTML5 (MP4) video which requires no plug-in to play. Facebook can't do that, because HTML5 doesn't apply to games... only video.
    Microsoft has no plans to "fix" the mess thay've created because they think it's a great idea to block you out of the websites you visit.
    They recommend using "Compatibility View" and pretending that you're using an older verison of IE... Problem with that is that it's seen limited success, and you have to enable it for EVERY page that has problems... individually.
    I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Opera (from Opera)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Chrome (from Google)
    ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.

  • Why the flash player don't work after installing the video downloader add-on?

    I've installed and uninstall the Firefox mobile app several times to try and fix this issue. Every time I add the video downloader add-on the flash player won't let me tap to play videos anymore. I've tried to completely enable the flash but still didn't work. I've used this add on for a few months and it worked fine up until the last Firefox update. Without the add-on the flash player works fine but after I've added the video downloader add-on I would have to uninstall and reinstall the mobile spot to get the flash to work again. I really love to use this add-on that's the advantage that Firefox mobile app has over other web browser. Please tell me how I can fix this issue. THANKS

    Hello FRYDAE
    Welcome to SuMo help Forum,
    Thankyou for reaching us here
    About your problem , have you tried to clear your privacy/browsing data? And see if flash works?
    And you can try to disable the add-on, if you don't want to use it . and enable it again if you want to download a video .

  • Now that I have installed OSX Lion, my flash player won't work.

    After I installed OSX Lion a few days ago my flash player suddenly stopped working. It won't let me update (it says I have the newest version) and when say, I try to watch a YouTube video a little box comes up over the player with settings and the "allow" button but no matter if I use the trackpad or the keyboard I can't select anything.
    It's getting really annoying because I can't play games, watch videos or video share online anymore and I have no idea how to fix it.
    Is it just something that will be stuck until Adobe releases a version that isn't beta for OSX 10.7?

    This allows me to watch videos which is great but still when I try to play any flash games or enable a webcam on something other than iChat, Skype or Photobooth the dialog box comes up and even using tab and space bar like Adobe suggests doesn't seem to work. :-/
    Glad to be able to watch videos again though

  • Flash player still not working after following all discussion advice

    Requested information:  I have Internet explorer 9/ using 32 bit on 64 bit computer/windows 7/flash player 10.2 version
    I contracted what my husband called a "rider" virus when I opened a knitting pattern of all things and if I understood it correctly was one of the anti-malware viruses talked about.  My husband was able to remove the virus but like others have said here, my flash player will not work.  My computer is only 3 months old!
    Here is what we have done:
    1: First removed all flash player and shock wave
    2: I have run a full scan with my Mcafee program, then ran a full scan and quick scan too with my malwarebytes program.  Everything in both is now clean.  I then rebooted (I also even tried doing all of this in safe mode too with nothing changing)
    3: came online and read a bazillion threads about others problems and tried every suggestion pretty much including those below
    4:  husband checked the kill bit (d27 thingy) and it was not there
    5: reinstalled flash player and shock after running the scans and though they show up in my programs when I looked at the add ons as suggest to others the
    neither shockwave or Flash Object was there
    6: uninstalled everything again
    So now I am back to where I started with nothing installed because I still have an issue and we don't know what it is.  I truly appreciate your help in any way as it is frustrating that none of the other suggestions have helped.
    this may not as my grandma used to say have anything to do with the price of rice in china, but we do keep getting a short freeze up on the computer followed by a message that the display driver stopped responding and recovered then it works again, but it does happen fairly frequently and this has been since the virus.  I am showing everything is clean though with regards to virus scans and malware spyware scans.

    Just when I thought I would finally find the answer you sent a message offline, which didn't help me a bit.
    I have the same problem.  My wife got a virus and I was able to uninstall it by poking around.  After killing the virus IE would not run.  I found some messages on the internet which enabled me to solve that problem by making some registry changes.  However, I still have not been able to get IE to run flash.  I do have it running in FireFox.
    What was the step that you sent in private email that enabled him top solve the problem?

  • Flash player won't install after Antivirus8

    I had the Antivirus8 problem this week.  Malwarebytes seems to have uninstalled it.  I have also run Eset Online Scanner and Microsoft malicious remover tool.  They all now say I'm clean.  But my flash player no longer works.  I have turned off my AVG 9.0 (why didn't it catch the virus!!), and have downloaded the flash uninstaller and the installer.  Ran them both, rebooting inbetween.  flash player seems to install, but when I go to the adobe test site i get the red x instead of the video showing that the flash player is working.  Online sites that require flash player do not work either.
    This all is new since the antivirus 8.  I never had a problem with flash before.  I am running Windows 7 Home, 64 bit, and internet explorer  I also have mozilla firefox.  I have tried using the  both IE 32 bit and IE 64 bit, as well as firefox, and all say that flash needs to be installed.
    Help please!

    Thank you so much for your support,GLPCPA.

    So I want another new infos on adobe F player will not install after Antivirus 8 infection.
    Thank you ,GLPCPA

  • Flash Player won't work following malware removal - help!

    I removed some malware using malwarebytes, which I thought was the end of my problem, but in fact it has opened up a bigger one, in that Flash Player has stopped working.  I've tried uninstalling and re-installing - now have version - but no success.  Kids didn't mind when they couldn't access their online homework; not so happy now they can't play their games either.  I've looked at other discussions for a solution, but nothing quite fits this problem.  Any help gratefully accepted.
    I can follow instructions but I'm not techie, so any replies need to be idiot-friendly, thanks.

    Have just spotted your post about the "kill-bit" http://forums.adobe.com/message/3432049#3432049 - sounds remakably like my problem so will check it out when I get home this evening.  Just one question though - is there any point in first trying to do a system restore to a point prior to the malware removal, or would I be wasting my time?
