Good Morning, I had a update yesterday and since then anything that uses Flash Player doesn't work, it stops sends a report to apple and thats it i've tried uninstalling the flash player and still nothing, I tried repairing the permissions in disk utility. Really no clue what to try next.

Imac Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.3), snow leopard

    I am unsure if this has something to do with my issue as well. since the upgrade, I have been unable to run BBC Iplayer, BBC embedded video. All other Internet Video work fine. (ITV Player, YouTube etc)

    Any Ideas?

    Flash make all my browsers crash. I've tried Safari, Firefox, and even the browser in RealPlayer. It's ridiculous that not even the Flash people can use their brains to resolve it (unless it's a grand conspiracy to discourage mac users). Aside from going to MS system, I'm open for a great fix on this.

    Does anybody know if using Parallels, or similar "pc" style system would take care of this?

    You could try running the uninstaller (Adobe Flash Player Install Manager) located in your utilities folder. That's Adobe's recommended way to get rid of it. After that try reinstalling the latest version and repairing permissions.

    Other than that, I'm at a loss. The latest 10.1 Release Candidate works fine on my end. :shrug:

    Since the Safari 5 upgrade, I have had the same **** issue, and it ****** me off to an untold degree, especially since I can now not watch the World Cup online. I have tried to go to Hulu, but every time I do, the browser crashes - Safari, Opera, Chrome & Firefox - they all crash! I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash. I have also fooled around with and reverted to original settings for the java. Nothing is working. This is ridiculous! I love HTML5 and all that, but Apple's hatred for Flash has become utterly useless for those of us that want to watch video on our computers! If Anyone does have a solution that works, I'd be indebted to you!

    uninstalling doesn't work for me either. I'm tired of Flash. I even tried to get the old Internet Explorer (slow piece of **) but IE hasn't upgraded mac's version since '06 so Flash don't work on that.

    I was able to fix this by uninstalling flash and re-installing an older version. If you don't have a prior download lying around you can google "
    older flash versions". Adobe has an archive online.

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but they still don't work (in any browser).

    Me too - updated the software two days ago and now I can't access any embedded video content on the BBC website. I've tried using an older version of Flash but that doesn't work at all. iPlayer is OK though. Apple need to fix this.
  • Neil_P Level 1 Level 1
    I now have a solution to this problem, which has certainly worked for me.

    Backup system. Go to User/Home/Library/Preferences. Move all files in the Preferences folder to a new temporary folder on the desktop. Log out and log in again. Test. Embedded video should work.If it does, copy the old preference files back to the original Library/Preferences folder but select DO NOT REPLACE. Log out and back in again.

    To retrieve e-mail accounts, mail, and account settings, copy the COM.APPLE.MAIL.PLIST file from the temporary desktop folder into the Library/Preferences folder and select REPLACE. When you're happy that all your data is in place and everything works, delete the temporary desktop folder.

    I have played with different combinations of Flash and now have everything working on my MacBook Pro. Using SMART Board Notebook software without Flash is a nightmare. I am using Mac System 10.6.4, Safari 5.0.1, and had to reinstall Adobe Flash. However, Flash Version (February 23, 2010) was the only flash player I could get to work in the right combination. Hope this helps!

    I had a problem after some upgrade and it turned out to be that the box in global storage settings pane in flash control panel that says "allow third party flash content to store data on your computer" was un checked. I checked it and all is now fine. http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/865/cpsid_86551/images/Settings02.gif

    unfortunately, after update to 10.6.5 now I have this problem. I have that box checked in global settings and have downloaded the latest flash plug in. I still cannot activate my cam for flash based webcam services. any thoughts?

    I keep getting error messages on websites that I need to upgrade my Adobe Flash to 8.1 or higher. Well....I've upgraded to 10.1 and still it doesn't work. I tried updating, upgrading, uploading, installing, downloading, uninstalling and doing cartwheels. I am so frustrated, that it was with tremendous joy that I trashed Adobe's 10.1 Flash Player (did you hear the crumple?). I'm on an iMac with NOTE 10.5.8. I haven't upgraded to 10.6 just because I haven't (I have the software).

    What gives, Adobe? What gives, Apple?

    Looks like it's off to another round of downgrading - and here I thought I was falling behind!
    Thanks for posting and letting us know what was up with this one.
