Hi, There is a person that usually checks the Mac problems here. I wouldn't do anything until he has a chance to help you.
I am not that familiar with Mac, just Flash Player, Windows, IE, FF etc.
Just didn't want you to think we were ignoring you:-)
He usually checks the Flash forum for the Mac users, so I am sure he'll see your thread.
OK, standing by.
Thanks for your input.
OK, I'm going to give this a shot tomorrow after work (too late now) and report back.
Hi juano, just a bit of info for you to check on. Sometimes with a PC, after an Uninstall/Install, the SWF plug-in for Firefox
and other browsers needs to be checked to see if it is installed as well as enabled. Now I don't know where this plug-in is located on the Mac but you probably do. Since you installed not only Flash Player but Shockwave Player as well, they would each have the SWF. The SWF for the Flash Player would be version 10.0.45.2 and the SWF for Shockwave Player would match the version 11.5.
You might take a look to see if both of these are there and enabled.
Sometime last year, even tho I don't know where everything is located on your system, I did try to help someone with a Mac. Between the two of us, along with screenshots we finally solved the issue.
Using Firefox, go to this Adobe test site and if this SWF plug-in is missing you should see a notice that you need it.
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ This will test Shockwave Player and you can also test Flash Player.
Then use Safari and do the same.
This is just something you can do until Mac+Win=Me can further advise you.
Hi juano, I'm shaking my head here:-) Strange indeed. Were you able to locate the SWF for Flash Player and Shockwave Player?
They MUST be there and enabled, otherwise even tho this test indicates installed. My opinion is that the tests are looking at the Flash Player and Shockwave Player files. And evidently those files are installed. This has happened many many times with the PC's. I have had too many users report what you are and the tests show installed, but not working. If the
SWF's are not enabled, or the ActiveX Control that is used in IE, then FP will not work. As soon as they enable it, problem
solved. Now, granted that doesn't mean there may not be another problem even with the SWF & ActiveX Control enabled.
This is just something that must be confirmed before proceeding to find what other problem there may be.
This is a different test site from Adobe and it is the one the other Mac user tested on with FF and it told him he needed an
additional plug-in, which was the SWF and it was missing. It wouldn't hurt to try only using FF and it only tests for the Flash Player SWF plug-in, not the Shockwave Player.
Now this test will only tell you that FP is installed and IF the SWF plug-in is missing. If you have the SWF installed, but not Enabled, it won't tell you that. That is why I wanted you to find those SWF plug-ins to make sure they were enabled. If I knew where they were located in Mac, I would tell you. I am guessing here, but I think they are in the Library where any other plug-ins are, as Quicktime, etc.
Hi juano, I found this that Mac+Win=Me replied to on another thread. He stated where the SWF plug-in is for FP and put up a screenshot.
Perhaps this will help.
The "animation" is not a looping animation.
The Shockwave logo, buttons and text all appear as part of the animation and then stay where they are.
Your screen shot shows this. I checked mine at http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
As you mouse over the buttons, they should change to show more info about each.
If the Shockwave install was unsuccessful, it wouldn't even get this far, so I tend to think it did work.
