    reverting to prvious version

    Nobadbugs

      This newest flash is preventing facebook games from playing. Anyone know how I can reload the previous version.

      It all worked fine before this new 23 that I downloaded yesterday.

       

      I tried downloading a previous version from the archives, but all it did was give me zipped files. I have no idea where to put them.
      Why do you need to make life so difficult?

       

      Windows xp, Firefox

          What does "This newest flash is preventing facebook games from playing" Mean?  With no detailed information, we can't begin to provide assistance.

           

          The previous versions are provided as a convenience, mainly for content developers.  Generally folks shouldn't be reverting to a previous version that contains known security vulnerabilities that are actively being exploited.  With that said, if you want to install a previous version with known vulnerabilities being actively exploited you need to uninstall the latest version using the uninstaller posted at Uninstall Flash Player for Windows  and then use the EXE installer from inside the non-debug folder. flashplayer23_0r0_205_winax.exe is for IE, flashplayer23_0r0_205_win.exe is for Firefox and NPAPI-based browsers, , and flashplayer23_0r0_205_winpep.exe is for Opera and Chromium-based browsers.
