Thank fudge it's not just me.
Posted exact same problem a few hours later.
However, I'm using OSX Maverick with Safari 7.0.
SOME NOTICES WOULD BE NICE ADOBE !!!
Download the following files by right clicking and selecting "Save target as".
Save ALL files to your Downloads folder - DO NOT RUN anything yet.
Reboot your system.
BEFORE opening anything else, go to your Downloads folder and run the UNINSTALLER to remove Flash Player.
Next, run the ActiveX Installer.
Once everything is installed, see:Enabling Flash Player in Internet Explorer and: ActiveX Filtering in Internet Explorer to make 100% sure that Flash Player is enabled and NOT being blocked by ActiveX controls.
