Flash Player Pop Up Box On Mac

Feb 3, 2011 12:33 AM

Ok, here is my problem... (And I've already run across the entire Internet looking for a solution)


When I open some of my Facebook games, the entire page turns a shade greyer and a tiny box pops up that is entitled "Adobe Flash Player Settings: Local Storage". It basically requests for more space to be alocated to the site.


The only problem is that I am unable to click on the box. Nothing can be changed and can also not be closed.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!




PS: I have already done what Adobe suggests and gone to Preferences>Advanced and changed the offline storage. That also did not work.

    I have the exact same problem. I have a Mac and cannot figure out what to do about this problem. I installed Flash Player 10.3 then I uninstalled and started over but it didn't fix the problem. We can't be the only ones with this problem but I see that nobody responded to you. I'm thinking of wording my search differently to see if it appears under a different discussion. Also, I can't even find a place to download an older version that might correct the problem.

    The thread linked below is only tangentially related to your issue, but it may serve to give you some insight into what keywords to input in a Google search and into Adobe's position on the issue:

    Have exactly the same problem – even with the new version. I have no idea what it could be.

    Are you all using iMacs with ATI video cards installed?  If so, we're aware of this bug and we're working with Apple and ATI to resolve it asap.  In the meantime, here's a FAQ that describes workaround for most common scenarios.
