    Hi Gail,

     

    Are these games flash or Java based perhaps?

     

    Is Java disabled?

    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.

    I don't see how any of this could apply to OS X 10.5.8 since they rely on the XProtect system to get their info on what is out-of-date. I don't think it will even run Safari 5.1.

     

    The only thing that I know of that could cause Flash 10.1.102.64 or older to be disabled is http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5283 which posted last May. I can't think of anything that would disable the Java plug-in for Leopard.

    Great news, thanks Gail.

     

    Do you know which one it was?
