    Hi Harvey,


    See if Flash is disabled in your Browser...


    About Safari 5.1.7 and Leopard Security Update 2012-003



    Learn about Safari 5.1.7 and Leopard Security Update 2012-003.



    Products Affected

    Mac OS X 10.5, Product Security, Safari 5.1 (Mac OS X 10.6), Safari 5.1 (OS X Lion)



    Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Lion, Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Snow Leopard, and Leopard Security Update 2012-003 disable out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player.

    Out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player do not include the latest security updates and will be disabled to help keep your Mac secure. If Safari 5.1.7 or Leopard Security Update 2012-003 detects an out-of-date version of Flash Player on your system, you will see a dialog informing you that Flash Player has been disabled. The dialog provides the option to go directly to Adobe's website, where you can download and install an updated version of Flash Player.

    Additional Information

    If you need to re-enable an out-of-date version of Flash Player, you can do the following:

        1.    Navigate to the /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (Disabled) folder.

        2.    Drag "Flash Player.plugin" into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins.

        3.    If the browser is running, quit and restart it.

    If you right click on the black pic, do you get the Flash popup for settings & such?


    See in each Browser which version of Flash it thinks it has...



    Then Test Adobe Shockwave & Flash Players...

    Maybe 10.5.8  won't play the latest Flash files?

    Possible I suppose, but havent heard of anything requiring past 10.3


    I'm on OSX 10.4.11 at the moment, & it has the symptoms as yours, but I block thousands of AD sites on this Mac, so not sure what it is.

    I could not get it to work in 10.5.8 at all, but it worked fine in Safar & Firefoxi in 10.7.5


    Couldn't get it to work in XP, or Win7 32 bit either?


    Also couldn't get it to work in Paralles 6/Win7 Ultimate/IE or FF.


    PS. If this is comedy, I suggest he pay 99% Income tax rate for the insult!
