When you click on Start, then Control Panel, then the Flash Player Icon, and finally click on the Advanced tab - what version of Flash Player does it show for Firefox (i.e.NPAPI Plug in)?
Thanks for answering.
AcitiveX version: Not installed
NP API Plug-in Version: 126.96.36.1995
PP API Plug-in Version: Not installed
Ok, you have the latest version of Flash Player for Firefox installed.
Now, in the upper right hand corner of the Firefox screen there is an icon for "Menu".
If you click on the Menu icon and then the Add On in Icon, then make sure the Plug In tab is selected on the left, what version of the Shockwave Flash does it say you are using?
I see. I guess I do have the correct version. It says Shockwave Flash 188.8.131.525.
I was going by the results of clicking "Check to see if your plug-ins are up to date". It tells me that it's an old version. So basically firefox isn't checking it correctly.
Assuming I have the latest version, I still need to solve the problem of getting this error messge: Shockwave Flash may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. What subforum should I post the question to?
Also, I find lots of times I'll click to go to a website and immediately get to the dreaded Server Not Found page. If I try again - no problem. It doesn't stop me from surfing, but it's annoying because it happens quite a lot. Not ever sure where to start with that one. No idea if it's a connectivity problem, a firefox problem a flash problem... : (
I am sorry but I am unable to help you with your remaining problems.
I have noticed that when people post to this forum during the week rather than on a weekend, some Adobe employees help with problems.
So I suggest you post your remaining problems in the Using Flash Player forum during the week.
If you do not get an answer in 48 hours try posting again.
Thanks for the advice, Andy. I appreciate your taking the time to help.
You are welcome.
One final note - When I click on "check to see if your plugins are up to date", Firefox says that Flash Player is up to date and it shows the latest version.
Good luck with the remaining problems
One more thing you could check. Click on Start, then click on Control Panel, (make sure you are not in Category View - use Large Icons), then click on Programs and Features.
You should see the latest version of Adobe Flash Player listed.
See if there is an old version of Adobe Flash Player that is still installed on your computer.
There is no such thing as Flash Player version 184.108.40.206. If you can post a screenshot of where your browser indicates this, I'd like to see it (The specified item was not found.).
Flash Player 220.127.116.115 and Shockwave Flash 18.104.22.1685 are the same thing. Flash Player was referred to as Shockwave when it was first introduced, many, many years ago and that name has been used since then. Unfortunately, it confuses users. However, Shockwave Flash should not be confused with Adobe Shockwave, which is a completely different product.
