I have noticed lately over the last two days that the adobe flash plug in does not seem to be working. I double checked to see that I had the current version which I do. I uninstalled it and reinstalled as well. I noticed that when I was on ESPN's site it stated I did not have the flash player installed. But the message was in a different language. Weird. I can go to other news sites and you tube and it seems to be working fine. I just never seen this happen before. So I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this lately.

    I wanted to update on this. I uninstalled my latest version. I checked Adobe's site and there is a new version. I installed that and went to ESPN again and it still says I do not have the flash player needed to view video. When I clicked the link that appears to see the latest version it is the one I just installed. Again this is very  weird. I did a scan on my computer as well to see if I got something but I do not. I have Java script turned on in Safari preferences but I have the java in the plug in section unchecked. I have been using tis set up for awhile with no issues. I noticed these issues just yesterday.

    Open System Preferences > Flash Player then select the Advanced tab.


    Click Delete All under Browsing Data and Settings


    Back to Safari. Press Command + Option + E to empty the Safari cache.


    Quit and relaunch Safari, try a video.
