Unable to change Flash settings in Chrome

Aug 6, 2010 11:00 PM

System: Dell Dimension 8200 w/ Pentium 4 2.20Ghz 512MB RAM


Windows XP Pro 2002 SP 3


Google Chrome is default browser, IE8 installed but disabled.


Flash plug-in enabled


Problem:  can no longer change Flash settings


Procedure:  In Chrome tools, opened Options, clicked on "Under the Hood" Tab, "Content Settings" button, then under "Cookies" tab clicked on "Adobe Flash Player Settings..." Link.


Settings page opens, and settings area shows "This Content Requires Flash".  This just started recently, as I had previously been able to change and save settings.

    Can you try the Reload key (F5 on most browsers) - does it repeat that message?


    Can you try the same on any other browser?

    1.UNINSTALLING IE 8 is a bad idea. I'm no fan of Microsoftee's beloved browser, but Windows Explorer uses IE files to allow navigation through files and folders in your OS and hard drive.  Disable it, yes, but you are only asking for trouble if you uninstall it altogether.


    2. Google Chrome is a very, very, very minimalist browser. Google even says so. On top of that, it's barely past the beta stage. I think they've released one update to it since it "went public". At this point, you should still set your expectations for it pretty low, or you're asking for disappointment in its performance.


    I personally use Firefox as my default browser in Windows and Mac.
