Adobe Flash 11 crashes website using IE 8 on System 7. The FOX NEWS.com site crashes. When I remove Flash 11 that site works fine on IE 8. That site works fine also on Chrome and Firefox. All other sites work with Flash 11 except the Fox site on IE8.
How can I download a previous version of Flash that does not have this problem?
So I was running into a similar issue on Lion but with a different cause. I had previously installed the Flashug add-on for Firefox. I removed it a while ago but the mm.cfg file was still pointing to it in preloadswf - although I could have sworn I've changed it before this. This cause adl to break as well as FP11. I set it back to the default and now everything is working fine. Hooray!
I am currently experiencing this problem in Windows 7 64-bit. Adobe Flash 11 Crashes everything that uses it. It first occured in Chrome. I opened the Flash Settings from Control Panel and proceeded to clear all caches. No fix. I then tried to use Internet Explorer. Still crashes immediately with any site using Flash. I download the Flash Player Uninstaller. Used it, and verified that Flash was removed from IE. Downloaded the latest standalone installer (64 bit) and used it. My browser opened upon installation, where it states that it was installed successfully; however, Flash still crashes in the exact same manner.
If bad font files are responsible, where do I go to remove them from my system? Any help with this is highly appreciated.
