I haven't had any serious problems with Flash for quite a while... and I've been using the betas for years.

If anyone is interested in the betas:

For those concerned, the v13 beta does NOT solve the FAIL on 2006-2007 Macs. It's been a week and nothing has been forthcoming from Adobe but going backwards to security hole riddled v12. Numbskulls. Told you they didn't care!

Nothing but crash crash crash. Let me say it crash.

What's wrong with those Adobe code writers ?

Do they not test there garbage first or are we the test dummies ?

The last 4 versions have alternated between working and giving a "Plug-In Failure" message, VERY FRUSTRATING since the download from macupdate.com and anywhere else is a stub-installer, so you cannot revert to a working version. Adobe's background updates never occur

AHEM. Chris Campbell at Adobe has released the following announcement regarding the FAILure of Adobe Flash Player v13 on Macs made from 2006 - 2007. It includes links for the UNINSTALLER for v13 and INSTALLER for version 12. PLEASE NOTE: There are known, published security holes in version 12. Do NOT install version 12 unless you ABSOLUTELY must, due to the threat of security hole hacking of your devices.

Poorly done Adobe. You get an F- from me. Your Flash software was already the second most dangerous software on the Internet for Mac users, second only to Oracle's Java.

http://forums.adobe.com/message/6285851#6285851

"We are aware that Macs created between 2006 and 2007 are currently running into problems using the latest release of Flash Player (version 13). We apologize for the inconvenience that this is causing. We are actively investigating the cause and hope to have a full solution to you shortly. In the meantime, please follow this two step procedure which will revert you back to version 12.

"Download and run our uninstaller: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/support/unins tall_flash_player_osx.dmg
Download and run the version 12 installer from: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac /install_flash_player_12_osx.dmg

"After installing Flash Player, you might be presented again with our update dialog. You have a couple of choices to deal with this.

"I recommend simply clicking the red close button on the dialog's title bar to dismiss the dialog. This dialog will show up once every 7 days or until we update you silently and automatically with the fixed version (45 days maximum).

"The other option is to change the notification option during the install to "Never check for updates (not recommended)." This will suppress the dialog completely. At some point in the near future Safari will block the old version of Flash Player and you'll be prompted to reinstall the new version of Flash (with the fix). When that happens you can return to the automatic update selection."

I'm getting a 404 Not Found error when I attempt to locate the uninstaller at http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp_1 2.0.0.77_archive.zip or the site mentioned above.

Any other ways to get my older iMac out of this mess? I wish I'd visited this site BEFORE I authorized the update!

Right in front of my eyes.

The uninstaller is called “Flash Player Beta 13 Uninstaller“ and the direct link is listed as the first “Related Links” above. Installed the uninstaller and uninstalled my Adobe Flash Player and then immediately enjoyed a YouTUBE video.

Note that the links as posted above won't work if just copied and pasted into a URL field, since the MacUpdate text routines insert a space character at the line break, which will appear as %20 in the pasted URL. Edit out the %20 and the URL should work.

URGENT-I just received the following from Adobe:

Thanks for getting back to us.



This is apparently fallout from a compiler update in our build infrastructure that exposed a long-standing bug in a Mac system library. Flash Player now attempts to use CPU instructions that are not available on a small subset of supported Mac hardware. None of the machines in our compatibility labs are affected, so the issue didn't show up in our testing, but we were able to track down a machine that reproduces the issue yesterday. We're actively working on a fix.



In the meantime, the easiest workaround is to use Google Chrome temporarily, or revert back to Flash Player 12.0.0.77 for Safari and Firefox. Chrome uses a separate PPAPI based plug-in, which is built using a different library than the one we use for NPAPI and is unaffected by this issue.



You can download 12.0.0.77 from the archives page, here:

I am using OS 10.9.2 on a Macbook Pro. I have Safari and
Firefox on my computer. Plug-In is broken on Version 13. I had to reinstall 12.0.0.77 . This is a total piece of S@%T. I also have installed Html5 plug in for You Tube.

Adobe needs to get their act together and stop putting out
defective products. TOTAL F.

100% agreement. The damned thing throws 'plug-in' errors on 10.7.5 on every browser that exists for the Mac.

Adobe, you've outdone your own incompetence this time. What a POS. - And yes folks, I've sent Adobe a couple bug reports about the situation, as if they give a rat's. Once a great company, now a bane of the Internet.

If you are having trouble with any Flash version, you likely need to download the current uninstaller and then reinstall. When testing Flash betas this is a must and you have to ensure you are uninstalling with the latest beta uninstaller.

This version doesn't work. Audio dropout, doesn't even pay most times audio. Or if it plays but skip ahead in a Youtube video - audio doesn't work, skip again it works, skip again it doesn't.

I had to download Google Chrome which plays the videos fine.

Deleted all files and reinstalled twice. Repaired permissions - nothing gets this version of Flash to work on two machines

one running 10.7.5 and 10.8.3 using Safari.

I have a question. I am using OS 10.4.11 on my PPC G5. Which is the most stable version of Flash for my Mac? Many sites, including News and Weather sites I visit regularly require Flash. Personally, I don't use Flash for anything else, but many vital sites require it, and inform my that my older version of Flash is not good enough. Am I just out of luck until I buy a new computer someday? Please provide advice, if you have the time. Thanks.

Geoprof said: "I set Flash to always “block all sites from storing information on…" my Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion Macs, but I still get websites' Flash requests to store info on my machines 6 or 8 times a week."

Is this in Safari and/or other browsers? Are there certain web sites that want to make these kinds of requests? Example URL?

Regarding Enterprise installations I found this interesting article: "Unattended installs of Flash Player 11.3" http://managingosx.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/unattended-installs-of-flash-player-11-3/ which describes Adobes recommended method on the Mac, its flaws and some workarounds.

In the several interesting comments you'll find that user TBG tells of making your own installer with JAMF Composer.
Read more about this tool here: http://blogs.adobe.com/oobe/2012/05/jamf-composer-2007-2012-r-i-p.html

It seems to me, before I've have tried any of these methods, that installing Flash Player to Enterprise users is certainly possible but also unnecessary complicated.

Anyone have tried these methods and lived to tell about the experience?

Can't install Flash 11.3.300.268 on Mountain Lion with GateKeeper's default setting of "App Store and identified developers" enabled.

Flash 11.3.300.268 was released after Mountain Lion's release but Adobe has not registered with Apple as an identified developer, so customers are going to be confused and unlikely to update Flash.

Checking for updates using the Flash 11.3.300.257 panel in System Preferences crashes System Preferences.

Troubleshoot with Adobe Flash Player version 11.1.102.55

Dear all,

after I had installed new Adobe Flash Player version 11.1.102.55 it turned out YouTube videos can not be played anymore. If I click on a desired videoclip, all I get is black screen, where the video should be. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the Flash Player again, but the same thing happens every time. I also tried to reload the desired YouTube video, but without success. Even with the previous version of Flash Player the YouTube playlist were not played automatically, and stopped when a videoclip ended, although I added for instance &autoplay=1, etc.
Is there some serious bug? Otherwise I have MacOSX version 10.6.8.

Please help, since I would like to look and to listen to videos on YouTube.

alas! had trouble on 26 Sep 2011
After installing this Flash version, whenever I go to a page that requires Flash I'm informed that I need to either install it or update to a newer version.
I experienced this identical issue with the previous version.
At Adobe's forum, there are several others reporting this problem although most appear to be on a Windoze platform.
I sure wish there was an alternative to Adobe's Flash.
