After updating my system to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 I can no longer view videos on Facebook or other sites. The only one I can view videos on is youtube. I have downloaded Adobe Flash player and still no luck. I cannot even open Preview on my computer anymore. Any ideas would be helpful thanks

Merely clicking the Preview icon in the Dock doesn't cause it to open anything, unless you had one or more windows open the last time it quit.
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.
1. If you're getting a "blocked plug-in" error, triple-click the line below to select it:
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
Services ▹ Open
from the contextual menu. A folder should open. If there is more than one item in the folder with the words "Flash Player" (not "flashplayer") in the name, open the respective Info windows, check the version numbers, and delete all except the latest. You may be prompted for your login password. If you get the same error after doing that, re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from this page:
Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player
Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
2. If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked Enable plug-ins.
3. Select
Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.
4. 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.

    Ziatron is correct that Flash does not work on an iPad, but it does work on a Mac. See Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.160.

    Hi,
    Try the following.
    First, download the Flash uninstall utility on the link below and save it to your Desktop.
    Flash Player Uninstaller.
    When the download has completed, close all browser windows and run the uninstaller.  After this has completed, restart the notebook.
    Next, download and install Firefox and then using Firefox, download and install the latest version of Adobe Flash.  Note: You may want to deselect the option to include McAfee Security Scan Plus before downloading.
    Close all browser windows before running the Flash installer.
    Launch Firefox and see if videos etc play Ok - if they do, close Firefox, open Internet Explorer and click on the same Adobe Flash link above to get a prompt to install the ActiveX component.  When done, restart Internet Explorer.

  • I can't download Adobe flash player, and it keeps telling me to. Is there anything else to use besides Adobe flash player.

    I can't download Adobe flash player, and it keeps telling me to, especially to watch videos, is there anything else to use besides Adobe flash player?

    You would download Flash from here http://www.adobe.com/go/EN_US-H-GET-FLASH however if your running an old version of Mac OS X say 10.5.8 or earlier then you cannot run the current version of Flash which is 11.3
    Remember you not only have to download Flash but you have to run the installer.
    Some websites that use Flash might tell your computer the site needs a specific minimum version of Flash and as above if your running too old a version of Mac OS X then you will not be able to run a new enough version of Flash.

    Hi, I'm new to using mac laptop, i just got one 1 month a go, i was downloading adobe flash player and it asked me for a password for the computer and i never created one, how do i over pass this situation?

    It is asking for your computer administrator account password to make system changes.  You "should" have an administrator account password.

  • I am trying to download Adobe Flash player and it is asking me to close Mozilla Firefox, how do I do this?

    I am trying to download Adobe Flash Player and it is asking me to close Mozilla Firefox before it will download. How do I do this?

    Save the Flash installer to the desktop and close Firefox via File > Exit or Firefox > Exit.
    Then run the Flash installer with a double lick on that desktop icon.<br />
    You may need to use "Run as Administrator" via the right-click context menu of that file.

    duplicate of [/questions/909951]

    Hello.  I have almost the same problem it seems.
    I have reinstalled Adobe Flash Player (latest), used the Uninstaller from the website. It installs correctly.
    Even tho it doesnt seem right when i check my programs installed.
    Because before i had 2 Adobe Flash Player (i use CCleaner for this), I got the Adobe Flash Player Plugin 64-bit
    and another at name Adobe Flash Player 11 something. And before i did the same thing as i did now.
    But it should probably be only the Plugin one.
    Anyways. When i try to watch Youtube videos, it won't use Flash Player at all. And Firefox says
    i have Flash Player, and its up to date and everything.  But Youtube wont use it. Some do odd enough.
    Vimeo use it tho.
    And now i came across this thread, and i tried that Profile thing you told. And it does work with a new profile.
    With the same Youtube video (copy link from old Profile). So i guess it's the profile that's broken.
    Example of videos:
    Doesnt work:       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3PMCD7aMRI&hd=1
    Works just fine:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZ46Ot4_lLo&feature=related&hd=1
    But how could i fix this then?  Cause i realy don't want to do a new profile and lose all the settings etc i have at the moment.
    Would be realy awesome if you could provide a fix for me
    I might have been unclear on some things, not that good at english at some points.
    So just ask if you need more info and ill try to provide it for you.

  • I am trying to download adobe flash player and it says I have to disable Firefox? If I do how do I do it and why do I have to disabe firefox

    cannot download adobe flash player on firefox it says i need to disable firefox first? If i have to disable how do i do it.

    Download and installation are two separate steps. The Adobe Flash '''installation''' procedure requires that Firefox be closed before installing Flash.
    orange Firefox button > '''''Exit''''' or File > Exit to close Firefox. Then wait a minute or so before starting to install Flash.

    Hello,
    Flash Player is not supported on Windows Phone.  At this time, there are no plans to support Windows Phone.  I am not aware of alternatives on Windows Phone OS for viewing Flash content.

  • Keeps telling me to download adobe flash player and its already downloaded

    i am new to the MacBook Air.  I downloaded a game from the apps store.  Whenever I try to play, it keeps telling me to download the Adobe Flash Player and its already downloaded and is up to date. 

    No game from the App Store could be prompting you install Flash. Only a web page could do that. Does the game open a web page?

  • Have installed adobe flash player and is in downloads, and my documents, but I can't open it due to conflicting instance. No idea what to do next

    Trying to open adobe flash player so my daughter can play educational games. Think it's downloaded ok, but it won't open due to 'conflicting instances'. I don't even know what that means!

    This is the full procedure for installing Adobe Flash for Firefox.
    1.Download the Flash setup file from here: <br />
    [http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe Adobe Flash - Plugin version]. <br />
    Save it to your Desktop.<br />
    2. Close Firefox using File > Exit <br />
    then check the Task Manager > Processes tab to make sure '''firefox.exe''' is closed, <br />
    {XP: Ctrl+Alt+Del, Vista: Shift+Ctrl+ESC = Processes tab}
    3. Then run the Flash setup file from your Desktop.
    * On Vista and Windows 7 you may need to run the plugin installer as Administrator by starting the installer via the right-click context menu if you do not get an UAC prompt to ask for permission to continue (i.e nothing seems to happen). <br />
