I just installed version 10.0.45.2 of the plugin through firefox.
No errors during installation. Plugin shows as active in about plugins.
The test page (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ ) shows the Flash animation and confirms it has been installed properly.
Once I leave the page Firefox hangs (repeatable).
Google Chrome shows the same behaviour (but offers to close the hanging tab, and mentions an 'Unknown' plugin is causing the problem)
The only browser that has no issues is IE 6 (which I really do not want to use).
Is there an Flash 9 download still available? I'd prefer downgrading if that means I can work around this problem.
Thanks in advance.
Just a guess, but could my virus scanner have anything to do with it?
I'm using McAfee (Mcshield.exe, version 126.96.36.199)
I too am having this problem and it is getting F***ing annoying. I hate having to reboot my computer just because a side commercial ad video is playing and happens to kill the browser. For me it kills firerfox and Internet explorer every single time after a couple of clips or about halfway through an episode on hulu (10-15 minutes). I thought it was my computer messing up so i reformatted and did a clean install of windows 7. Ive only been on the computer half a day and the problem is still there so it is definately not my system. I have unistalled flash and everything adobe related and reinstalled as well as reinstalled all my browsers. Nothing. Can someone please help so i dont have to keep rebooting my computer everytime i want to look something up.
Side note: i had avg prior to the reformat and right now no virus protection so i dont think it has anything to do with that
Hi, I would like to have you post all of your add ons in IE, both currently loaded and have been loaded and version#'s if listed and the same with the FF plugins, extenstions and add ons.
You don't want to try to install FP vs 9, it will fail and you may have more problems as a result than you now have.
McAfee is definitely a problem. We'll address that later. McAfee and Norton are the most intrusive Anti-Virus programs on the market. They can't even be uninstalled by a regular method. They each have their own Uninstallers. Just think "big
brother". They practically take over your computer and dictate what you can and can't do. So, yes, a major issue.
However, you have several things going on but I would start with the add ons first and proceed from there. If you want
me to help you sort this out, you must agree not to "move the goal posts". By that I mean adding, removing, changing,
installing, uninstalling etc. I cannot help you if you do that. This is a busy forum and my time is valuable. If you want to experiment that is fine, but I try not to waste my time on that.
Hi notpluggedin, Since you just registered, please take the time to start a thread in your name. You may think your problem is the same as the person that started this thread that you posted on, but it is not. Too many variables and
it is too confusing to try to help more than one person with different problems on one thread.
P.S. When you start your thread, pick the subject that most describes the problem that you are having. That helps those
that can help you.
