    Why won't FP 11.4 work on my Mac?


      I've downloaded and installed FP 11.4 several times.  It is always "successful" and appears in the Internet Plug-Ins file... but I contiue to see the message "Blocked Plug-In" wherever I try to see a Flash Player image.


      What am I missing?






      Mac OS10.7.4

      Safari 6.0

          It's possible that Safari is seeing a different copy of the plugin, possibly something in your ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins folder.  Could you check out the Installed Plug-ins help menu item in Safari to see if you can spot Shockwave Flash?  If so, what version is reported?

            You nailed it! 


            There was no "Shockwave Flash", but there was:


                 _Flash Player.plugin  (note the underline)


            The Info panel for it showed:


                 Adobe Flash Player   11.2 r202


            I deleted it and the current version, so no FP plugin was left.  Then, I reinstalled 11.4... and Bingo, it works!!


            I have no idea how the underline got into the name... but it camouflaged it enough that I didn't notice it every time I looked at the Plugins.  Your sugggestion made me look closer.


            Many thanks!!
