Upgraded to firefox 6 and flash player won't work

I've finally upgraded to Firefox 6, after much much hesitation, and now certain sites built in Flash won't work. They work just great in Safari. The upgrade to the latest Flash player worked for Safari, but not Firefox. I've updated the Shockwave player.
No matter how many times I download and install the newest player and restart my browser, it still tells me I have to download and install the newest flash player and restart my browser.
Even Firefox 5 doesn't want to work with Flash...

* Close Firefox (click '''Firefox''' button and click '''Exit''')
* Open the '''install_flash_player.exe''' file, then follow the installer's instructions.
-> Start Firefox in Safe Mode by Holding down the '''Option''' key while starting your Mozilla Firefox application. (If the Profile Manager opens, select a profile and then hold down the '''Option''' key again while clicking the button to start Firefox.)
* As an alternate method, go to Utilities (in the Applications folder) and open Terminal, then run:
** /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -safe-mode
-> Firefox Safe Mode window will appear -> DON'T SELECT ANY OPTIONS, just click '''Continue in Safe Mode'''
-> go to a website that uses Flash player:
* http://www.youtube.com/
* http://movies.yahoo.com/
Check and tell if its working while you are Browsing in Firefox Safe Mode.

  • 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...

    I'm sorry. I was hoping it would work for you. I have to delete it about

  • 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.

  • 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 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?

  • Why is the color offset on Flash Player in my Firefox, even after reinstalling both Firefox and Flash Player?

    I have the latest version of Flash Player, the latest version of Firefox and my system is a Windows 7 64-bit. Every time I view a Flash Player window, the green color is offset down about one-quarter of the window. This makes it difficult to use Firefox to watch Flash content. This does not happen on any other browsers I have.

    When I click that link, it goes (as it should from a U.S. IP Address) to the hyperlinked page 87, which is where the English portion begins.
    Your browser or International settings may prevent it from doing so, but I have nine machines that ALL parse the link the same way.

  • Ever since upgrading to Mavericks, Adobe Flash Player doesn't work.

    I upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mavericks recently and since then, sites do not recognize that I have Adobe Flash Player installed at all. I currently have the most updated version: "Plug-in version 11.9.900.170 is installed." I noticed this when family and friends sent me e-cards. I go to the sites to view them and it tells me I need to download Adobe Flash Player.
    I have uninstalled it twice and downloaded it twice. Installation is always successful and complete but when I test it to view an e-card sent to me from a reliable site, it still states that I need to install it to view the card. I HAVE IT!! lol  I don't understand why the sites are not recognizing it on my computer.
    I've tested it out on both Safari and Firefox and it doesn't work on either. Safari is 7.0.1 (current).
    Can anyone help me fix this? Troubleshooting on Adobe Flash Player basically tells me to uninstall and re-install. Still doesn't help. ~sigh~
    Thanks in advance for any help!

    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 5.
    Step 1
    If you're only having trouble with YouTube videos, sign in to your YouTube account and load this page. You may see a link with the text "Leave the HTML5 Trial." If so, click that link.
    Step 2
    If you're getting a "blocked plug-in" error, then from the menu bar select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Check Now. Quit and relaunch your browser.
    Step 3
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page 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. Delete the following item, or anything with a similar name, if present:
    Flash Player (failing).plugin  
    You may be prompted for your login password.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combinationcommand-C. In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
    Step 4
    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 5
    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 6
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.
    Step 7
    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.

  • Current versions of Flash Player won't work on my Windows 7 machine

    When I install a late version of Flash Player it won't play videos.  Here's what I get on YouTube https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6246962/0002.png .   I then have to go back to a previous version.  When running the previous version Firefox nags me constantly about needing to update.  This has been going on for a year or so.   I run Firefox on Windows 7.  The latest version that works is
    Of course the question is how do I make a current version of Flash Player work?

    I'm sorry you're running into this.  This looks like a YouTube specific error, so you might be able to find out additional info on their forums.  Here's a few things I'd try to start:
    1. Update to our latest version, released today: 11.5
    2. Update your video drivers (feel free to post your system's dxdiag report if you run into problems with this) - Windows: how do I update the device driver for my video/display adapter?
    3. Try disabling hardware acceleration in Flash Player - How do I disable or enable hardware acceleration?
    4. Pause the video and try changing the resolutions to see if that makes a difference
    5. Clear you browser cache (or at least the Flash Player cache and settings, note that this will reset hardware acceleration back to the default - How do I clear my Flash Player cache and settings? )
    6. Try clicking the popout or fullscreen buttons in the YouTube player.  Does that help?
