Adobe flash player not working properly in IE9 and Firefox.

Q: Adobe flash player not working properly in IE9 and Firefox.

HI. For a few i am having problem watching Youtube videos. I can only hear the audio but the screen remains black. I tried to access the flash player settings but it is grayed out ( there is no access to it) . I have the latest flash player and my browsers are also updated. Can anyone help me with this ??

Preferred Solution: Adobe flash player not working properly in IE9 and Firefox.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have Vista 64 bit sytem, SVSP 1, with 6 gig Ram, 67 Gig Free Hard Disk Space, IE 9.
I tried to install the most current version of Adobe Flash Player 11.
I downloaded from Adobe Website. I initiated the installation. Received a message after installation....Installation Successful.
Then I went on the internet to view a video. Immediately, received message: Must have Adobe Flash Player 6.0 or higher.

I have done the reinstallation a number of times with (supposed) successful installation...but it is apparant that the installations are actually failed installations.

What is my next step?:

A:Can Not get Adobe Flash Player to Install Properly

Are you using the 32-bit version of IE? The 64-bit version doesn't support Flash.

I am currently trying to work with people across multiple forums on this issue.

If I did lower the activex prompts in internet options, it just hangs at the installing screen after I click install. What is this all about?

Is there something that specifically uses flash that I could test to see if it is working, to isolate if it is just gametrailers videos?

For instance, I can play videos on youtube.

A:Adobe flash player will not install properly, having issues

Just a suggestion, but a concise explanation of the issue at hand gets more response than links to two other forums to read through...

What version of IE? In IE6, click tools, manage add-ons. If flash player is present and not disabled, you might uninstall all versions of flash player in add-remove programs, repair the IE installation, clear all temp files and cookies with Cleanup! (backup first, or run demo mode first...) or another such application, reboot, and try the Flash installation with activeX blocking, AV and firewall disabled.

Some other active process may also be interfering...a clean boot might be a thought.

My Adobe flash player updated to 11, and now it won't display properly:

I've tried to go back to flash player 9 and it won't play because it says it needs an update.
I can't find a proper installer for 10 ,what can I do?

Hey everyone,
I am having trouble running Adobe Flash Player with Firefox. I can download, but when I double-click the item to run it I get no response. I keep getting stuck on step 2 of 3.
I'm having the same trouble with IE. Chrome already comes with Flash Player in it, so it won't let me manually download it either.
Solutions anyone?

This started a year or so ago something about Firefox blocking Adobe Flash Player because of a security problem is what I think the explanation was.
All this time later it is still happening surely there must be a fix by now?
There is an option that shows up to accept the process but it doesn't work just continues to block?

How do I know when I download Adobe Flash player whether it is for Firefox or IE if it doesn't mention what it is for. Does active x mean Explorer. If no x means it is for Firefox or what?


A:Download Adobe Flash Player for Firefox or IE

Yes, the file that ends in "_ax" is for internet explorer. The other is for Firefox. For example, the release from April for I.E. is called "install_flash_player_ax.exe"

Flash player installed on IE with no problems, but I use Firefox and cannot get it to install. I click on the install and the box come up to "save file" or "Cancel" I select "save file" and it just sits in the downloads box doing nothing. I double click on it and a message comes up that Firefox needs to be closed to continue. I close Firefox and still nothing happens.
Any suggestion??

ot the latest versions of flash player plugin and latest Firefox installed on a Windows 7 32-bit system.

After running the browser for awhile the flash player crashes in Firefox. I have tried uninstalling/installing Flash player and Firefox. I also tried installing older version of Flash player. Nothing seems to work. Flash works fine in Chrome and IE.

You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these: disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

A:flash player not working properly

sometimes the "it is being used by another person or program" error can be fixed by simply unplugging the cpu fron ac power source for a couple of minutes, then hooking up the power & restarting...this clears out some sort of cache that will release the resource...not very technical, I know, but worth a try

maybe then you could delete the flash9.ocx file and try the other fix

I am using Vista Home Basic and although it appears that I have installed Adobe Flash Player, whenever I access something that needs this, I get the message Adobe Flash Player needs to be installed. I have tried un-installing then re-installing but still the message appears that it needs to be installed.

I feel I should be able to use the Flash Player on Vista Home Basic, so would appreciate any suggestions as to how I can get this to work.

Good Day, Thanks in advance for any help and time with this problem.
Windows 7 HP SP1 64bit, Firefox 36.0, Flash 32 bit.

I have been having problems with Adobe Flash Player, It started with problems
in my Firefox 36.0 browser, Flash would hang saying "plugin" had stopped "cancel or Keep Trying"
if I cancel, browser continues to work, but if I try to run the plugin it freezes Firefox.

I have uninstalled Flash Player and Firefox and reinstalled but this did nothing to help.
Now it seems Flash player won't even work. As well, I have tried both 32 bit and 64 bit versions, which should I be using?

A:Adobe flash player installing but not working?

You might not have it enabled as an Active X Object in IE:

Open Internet Explorer> Tools> Manage Add-ons> on the site below, note the entry 'Shockwave Flash Object' by Adobe> find that on your screen> click to highlight> then click on Enable> OK

NOTE: there are 2 sections for the dialog box t the top: 1. Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer and 2. Add-ons previously used. IF you don't find it in 'Current" click on the arrow point to the right of the box and change to 'previous'.

See if that makes a difference. You might need to reboot after making the setting change.

Try turning off hardware acceleration in the Flash Player, as that can sometimes resolve issues with Flash videos not playing.

Right-click in the black video window
click "Settings",

Having not Player Working Flash in Firefox a really strange Flash Player not Working in Firefox time in Firefox So about two weeks ago flash just suddenly stopped working My first Flash Player not Working in Firefox instinct was to just update the thing - After all it requires updates every few seconds right now It downloaded just fine but then crashed when I tried to install it Strange So I went and downloaded the full version This time the installer boots up and gets to the end but then tells me I have a previous version on the computer and I need to uninstall it I did and went back and tried the install again and the same message came up I went back into the uninstaller and sitting there up top was flash player again After doing this about five or six times I began to realize either I was going insane or I had a problem While I'm not ready to rule out the former entirely I pressed on I found I had shockwave flash as well and tried a similar process with that one and it's still sitting there in my plug ins with adobe nowhere to be found I'm aware shockwave is from Adobe but I don't think it's the same program So what caused all of my flash boxes to suddenly go white Why can't I get abobe to install So basic information I'm running Windows Firefox and flash something The latest one I have a Java manager installed and yes I've uninstalled and reinstalled on that one It's not a Windows problem because flash still works on IE But since I would much rather use Firefox I need to get it working on this one It's also not blocked by any spyware filters because I disabled them when I first started encountering problems When the installer crashes it give me the following explanation Problem Event Name APPCRASH Application Name install flashplayer x mssd aih exe Application Version Application Timestamp f Fault Module Name ezMAll dll Fault Module Version Fault Module Timestamp fec Exception Code c Exception Offset d OS Version Locale ID Additional Information ab Additional Information aba b eaf a d d Additional Information c Additional Information c a f a a ebf ff a Not sure if any of that is relevant but I figured I'd give it a shot

Please help. Thanks.

Did you update Flash using the IE version, the non-IE version or both?

What happens when the videos crash? Do you get artifacts in the video window, does Firefox become unresponsive or does it shut down the tab?

The flash player for IE and Firefox is in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash. The IE one is called Flash9f.ocx and for Firefox its NPSWF32.dll.

You can view current version, by going to a page with a flash object on the web page, right click on the Flash object and select About Adobe Flash Player 9 and it will take you to Adobe site and display version.
You can also get version from the files about on the Version or Details tab of its properties.

As for removal, just either use the Uninstall tool in the same folder (See above) or delete all the files in the folder to remove it.

I am constantly asked to install Adobe Flash Player (AFP) while browsing the web. Each time I have to reinstall AFP in order to view the web site.
I have uninstalled and re-installed AFP to see if this would correct the situation, but it has not.
Can anyone suggest a solution?
Thanks for your interest and help.

I have a small but annoying problem I have Adobe Flash Player 10 installed in my pc and about 3 or 4 times a week, I get a box up on my screen with a message which reads something like,

" there is a script error running in Adobe Flasher Player that will cause your script to run slow and your pc may become unresponsive .. do you wish to abort the script."

I then tick the yes box and it goes away.

My question is ... is this a problem and if so how do I cure it.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Adobe but the problem stil persists.

Hi guys,
As we now have IE9 in use, has anyone tried the 64-bit browser with the preview release of Adobe Flash Player "Square" (codename) which enables 64-bit support.
Thanks for your comments!

A:Adobe 64-bit Flash Player

Been using it since it came out in the 64 bit version of Firefox (was called Minefield and now called Nightly). Also used it in the 64 bit versions of IE8 and IE9.

Also don't forget to install the 64 bit version of Java,

for those sites that need it.

Is anyone else having the same problem I am with adobe flash player? I have tried downloading version 10 numerous times,but keep getting the message "need to download the latest version of adobe flash player" whenever I try to view videos, or games that use it. One of the games I play is Farmtown on was working fine up till about 3 weeks ago, when i got that message for the first time. I can view and play games,videos,etc. just fine if I use Firefox, but not when I try using IE 7.

Try re-installing it. Make sure you uninstall it first from Add/Remove Programs.

After I uninstalled the flash player IE played nice.

For those of you experiencing problems with Adobe Flash Player and IE, I contacted Adobe and got there beta version.

My IE 7 kept shutting down randomly, and when I upgraded to IE 8 it kept giving this error :- A problem with this webpage caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab. A continous loop of going nowhere.

I hope this helps someone

Hi all
Bought a new laptop, went to youtube and tried to play videos , each time I click on a movie it says I need to download the latest upgrade to Adobe Flash Player , I went to the Adobe site but everytime I click on download nothing happens ,
I read the part where it says disable firewall and antivirus , did this to no avail, have tried both the 32 and 64bit internet explorer again nothing am now lost and not happy as I thought Adobe was already on and would upgrade automatically .

Hello, I'm having a problem with a certain program made to be run by Flash.
It's just a white screen, when I right click it, it shows, "Movie not loaded". I tried this program on a Windows 7 Starter laptop, and the program worked fine.

Now my question is, how do I solve this?
It seems that I need to update my Flash from 11.3.300.265 to 11.5.502.110, but the problem is, when I download a standalone updater, it shows me this:

Thanks in advance. :D

Hello Xian,

I'm not sure why the Flash movie won't run for you.

Flash updates are now handled by Microsoft through regular Windows updates. As far as I know, that's the only way to update Flash in Windows 8. You'll have to wait until Microsoft releases an update.
