I have been watching youtube, hulu, HBOgo, Showtime, you name it, for many months now just fine. Just yesterday I shutdown my computer for a while (which I don't often do) to clean it and what not. After re-booting it, all those webpages told me my flash was out of date and I need to upgrade it to 10.3(which I already had). I did, didn't work. Did it again, didn't work. Downloaded it, shutdown the computer, didn't work. Downloaded it, restarted the computer, didn't work. You get the picture. What is the problem!! Has this been happening with anyone else?


Thank you for reading!!

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




    Perhaps it's disabled?

    Products Affected

    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.
