I've branched this to a new topic as the other one was a year old and might have been specific to 10.3.
Is this something you can reproduce? We've had reports about this over the last couple of months but it appeared it might have been specific to certain web pages/frames that were asking for an incorrect version of Flash Player. If you can easily reproduce this, I'd be happy to take a look. Please let me know and we can schedule something.
I am the guy with the original problem who posted almost a year ago. Yes, it is still problem.
I have two flashing shield icons on my taskbar right now – "Adobe Fash Player is requesting your permission…".If I right-click / close window they are back within minutes. I get pop-up dialogs that dim the screen and force me to respond asking if I want to install the latest Flash Player.
I have done everything under the Sun to tell Adobe to stop asking me to upgrade.
I am sure most people just upgrade to the latest version, but since upgrading to the latest breaks my Dragon Naturally Speaking, I can't do that. I suffer with these obnoxious flashing shields and intrusive dialogues requesting that I upgrade.
Could you try extracting and placing the mms.cfg file that I've attached to this post into the following folder, then restart your browser (or system)?
Windows 32bit: C:\windows\system32\macromed\flash
Windows 64bit: C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash
If an mms.cfg file already exists, please modify it to include the following two lines:
This should disable Flash from checking for new versions.
mms.cfg.zip 166 bytes
Gave it a try. I installed the mms.cfg file in my C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash directory. I even rebooted. My computer is Windows 64bit.
Makes no difference. I am sitting here staring at two flashing shield icons on my Taskbar – "Adobe Flash Player is requesting…". I just had to click "No" to close a pop-up that disables everything else on my screen asking "Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer?" – Adobe Flash Player.
I have done this all before. Take a look at my previous two or three threads dealing with this problem.
Something must be causing this to occur. Can you reproduce this on command? If so, would you be willing to do a quick desktop sharing session with me so I can see what's going on? If so, shoot an email to email@example.com and we can schedule something.
