I have flashed based videos on my website and an uploader that requires flash to be installed. Does anyone know how to turn it back on in the new Safari? Everything works fine in Chrome. Would prefer to stick with Safari if its possible to fix it.

itunes, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    You need to download the Flash Player from adobe.com. It no longer comes pre-loaded with the OS (Chrome has it built in).

    Not in Safari (other than going to a site that uses Flash), but you can check your Applications> Adobe> and see if you have a Flash Player folder installed. There should also be an Adobe Flash Player Install Manager in Applications> Utilities folder.

     

    After you download the Player and run the installer, do you get any error messages? Does it confirm successful install?

    On my Safari 5.1.4 that site works.

     

    Please check in Safari> Preferences> Extensions> if you have a Flash blocker extension installed.

     

    Deleting Safari prefs, .plist files, may be required, but I'm not qualified to direct you to the correct ones. Hopefully, someone else chimes in, or you can search the forum.

     

    Sorry I wasn't able to help.

    Have you been having this problem ever since you upgraded to 5.14, or did it just occure recently? We'll end up fixing it, one way or another.
