    Adobe Flash in ActiveX and plugin do not play

    I downloaded and supposedly successfully installed Adobe Flash in the latest version in both ActiveX and plugin, but neither plays in Firefox or Explorer. Firefox has it activated, but it doesn't even show up in the Explorer list.

    Try Chrome and/or Windows 8, both take over the job of managing flash which Adobe it way to incompetent to manage.

    This thread doesn't really belong in the Downloads forum. Could it be moved @SYNACK?

    @abimho. If you visit the link below in Firefox, what is the version number listed in the "Version Information" box?

    www.adobe.com/uk/software/flash/about/

    Also, which version of Windows and Firefox are you using?

    Assuming this is for one PC versus a computer suite or more than one PC

    Using both programs and features ( add / remove programs ) as well as the flash un-installer ( Uninstall Flash Player | Windows ) to remove Flash from your system completely

    Once removed you can either restart windows and then re install flash or just re install flash

    I normally go to the flash downloads page and click the link for Other Browsers and then download the setup file and run the setup file as administrator ( shift and right click the setup file and select Run As Administrator )

    Obviously selecting the correct OS and from the 2nd drop down select the option for Other Browsers ( you could possibly try and download and install both )

    Click download now button and save that some where that you can find easily --> As stated above run as administrator

    If this is for more than one PC ie on a network then you may need to download the Flash Player for Network Administrators which I believe there is a link to this on the initial page

    Uninstall + clean does not always work, tried all sorts on one Windows 7 machine and never recovered it, would play some things and not others. Ended up just putting chrome on - not my preferred course of action - just to get it going as I had wasted enough time on it and as it was a personal machine it would have been a pain to reimage.

    Similar here and with Shockwave (don't ask). I'm trying to bluster on regardless till summer when I'm putting Chrome out in a new image and making it default. IE seems to be working with less and less, even other MS products!
