Ever since I ran the new 10.4 update (10.4.4) my safari has been unable to load flash pages, i've installed the shockwave software twice, and i still have the same problem. Can someone help me out and tell me how to fix this? thank you!

iBook G3, Mac OS X (10.4.4)

    Did you repair permissions after running the update? What other maintenance steps have you run since the update?
  • shutterfey Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Yes, I've repaired permissions, i've defragged my mac, i dont know what else to do

    Quicktime may be affecting Flash.

    Questions:

    What version of Flash are you using. Mine reads 8.0.22

    Run the Quicktime Reinstaller to revert back to QT 7.0.1, then try Flash content on Safari again. While you can't remain at 7.0.1 because of problems with other Apple apps such as iTunes, you'll know whether QT is the source of the problem.

    Please post back.

    I am having the same problem with Safari. Neither Shockwave nor Flashplayer will install. I tried the Quicktime Reinstaller suggested and it crashed my computer big time. Nothing would launch, not even the finder! I was able to download and install Quicktime 7 Pro again (whew!) but I discovered something that might have to do with all this.
    Flash 7 is installed on my computer. I think it might have been installed by Macromedia Contribute3. Apparently, it installs Flash 7 (and it's plugins). Although I have downloaded and installed Flash 8 several times (and rebooted, repaired permissions etc) I always get the same message - plugins are not installer go download them.
    Any idea how to uninstall Flash 7 without uninstalling Contribute3?
    And even if that is the problem, why won't Shockwave install? Oh brother! how frustrating.

    Might seem like the same problem, however, your problem is related to software compatibility issues with the new MacIntel system.

    Have a look at this post for a work-around suggestion.

    I had the same problem and it almost drove me nuts. After reinstalling Flash without success, I took a look at my Safari Preferences. Under the Security tab (the lock icon), the 'Enable plug-in' checkbox for some reason was disabled, altough I had never touched it. Strange, eh!?

    Enabled it again, and boom, everything was thankfully back to normal.
