- I have Flash player version 11.4.402.265, Safari version 6.0, and a mac with os x version 10.8

 

My Flash player isn't working in safari but it does with firefox. Ive updated to the latest version of flash player, enabled java plugins etc, and i have the Shockwave Flash 11.3 r300 plugin and it still says my version of flash player is out of date.

 

can someone help? Thank You

    What version is reported installed by Firefox on your system?  Can you go to the About Plug-ins help menu in Safari, is Shockwave Flash listed?  Are any plugins listed?

    Mac 10.6, Flash plugin just updated (11.4), FIrefox 15.

    For me too. Neither in Safari nor in Firefox.

    Flash doesn't work. But it doesn't work at all, not only for videos. I cannot see any Flash Object. Instead of Flash Object I have a Blank box. RIght click menu is active, I see the Flash menu.

    I'm a flash developer and many people visiting the site I administrate contact me because they cannot see videos.

    I wanted to try to disable Hardware acceleration, but I cannot change Settings. The global settings work, but the settings not. When i rightclick on the place where it should be the flash object, i get the usual Flash contextual menu, but when I click on SETTINGS and nothing happens. No window appears, and this happens because any flash object is shown on screen.

    Any help?

    Let's try this.

     

    Select the Safari menu, then Preferences.  Click the Security tab and verify that "Enable plug-ins" is checked.

    Ok, so if you go to Safari's help menu and select "Installed Plug-ins", do you see "Shockwave Flash" listed with a version number of 11.4 r302?

    Shockwave is a different product.  It's confusing, but Shockwave Flash is really Flash Player.  Shockwave 11.6 won't help in this case.  You need to install from this installer:

     

    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.4.402.265/inst all_flash_player_osx.dmg

     

    Once done, you should see 11.4 r302 under "Shockwave Flash" listed in Safari's help menu for plugins.
