I've seen this question asked many times on here and in other forums but no one has any answers. Whats going on? Why can't someone at Adobe address this issue? Do they expect us to pay extra for asked questions about their faulty software? This is ridiculous.
Here's the solutions (thanks to San), just incase anyone else come across this problem. - cheers!
It sounds like the user configuration is bad. Please try removing the user configuration folder. Please note that after deleting the user configuration, there are user settings, such as panel position and saved jsapi commands, will be removed or reset so you might want to save the important files you want to reserve in user configuration before removing the user configuration folder.
1. Quit Flash.
2. Delete the following folder:
Win 7 and Vista: HD:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS5
Win XP: HD:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS5
Mac: HD:/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/\Adobe\Flash CS5
3. Relaunch Flash and see if it fixes the problem.
