What would cause Safari to stop running Adobe Flashplayer? It's on my computer. It works with other browsers. Most websites don't complain. When I ask them to show me stuff, however,  it comes out looking like a math problem written in Turkish or Romanian.


What about pdf files? Same thing.

From the Safari menu bar, select


Safari Preferences Security


and check the box marked Allow other plug-ins.

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.



If that doesn't help, you may have the YouTube HTML5 beta enabled.

Linc, thanks for your help. You solved my problem (although I forgot to mark "solved"). I was fast becoming displeased with Safari, but peace has been restored.
