I have a website that features a lot of Flash.



Lately, when viewing my site in Safari I've found that the pointing finger cursor will not show when I hover over a text link in a Flash object.

Curiously this only occurs with some of the links.

The arrow cursor shows and the link still works.


The finger shows up on all the lnks using Firefox so it seems to be a Safari/Flash problem.


Any help appreciated.

    HI ...


    Try troubleshooting the Flash plugin...


    Now uninstall the Flash plugin then reinstall new >  Troubleshoot Flash Player | Mac OS


    Launch Safari From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Empty Cache


    Now try a video.


    BTW... if you have the ClickToFlash extension installed, that can prevent Flash based video from streaming. It can also be installed as a plugin in /Library/Internet-Plug-Ins.


    And check to see if Safari is running in 32 bit mode. Right or control click the Safari icon in your Applications folder then click Get Info. If the box next to:  Open in 32 bit mode  is selected, deselect, quit then relaunch Safari.
