I'm having an issue where certain flash sites don't work
properly on my mac, they just sit there loading and never actually
The vast majority of sites work just fine, youtube, google
video, gamevideos.com, the escapist, etc..
But some sites such as veoh.com simply will not play the
In addition to that, www.pandora.com will not work either,
but there I at least get an error message stating that "flash local
storage is not turned on". In this case I've tried to load the
flash manager and turn it on, but after changing it and going back
in, it seems that my changes were not saved and my local storage is
stuck at 10k max.
The exact same sites work fine on my friends PC using my
I have tried to uninstall and reinstall flash with no
I've tried both firefox and safari, neither work, but the
flash stuff seems to be global on the machine, so I suspect it's
more of a problem with the flash than with a specific browser.
I've even tried to run firefox as root, install flash as
root, etc thinking that it was something to do with not having
permission to write to wherever flash was trying to store stuff.
I've got Firefox 184.108.40.206, OSX 10.4.11, and Flash 220.127.116.11
I suppose I'm most concerned about pandora.com, but I think
the video issues may be related to the "local storage" error I'm

No, not yet, support finally got back to me, but suggested it
was site specific.... which it's not, since every other computer
but mine works fine on that site (goto pandora.com if you're in the
US, it works fine, just not for me)
I've tried the flash 10 beta, that didn't help either.
I did a verify and repair permissions with apple's disk
utility, it did correct the permissons on the flash plugin, adding
write access for the group, but that didn't fix the problem.
Also, the fact that when I use the flash manager on adobe's
site and it won't remember the settings makes me think it's
something to do with Flash not having access to write a local
config file. It doesn't even have anything in the list of visited
sites like it should...
I don't know where this config file is, i'm still waiting to
hear back form support again...
