I am glad to have finally found a thread addressing my problem, I have had the same one since Flash went to version 10. I found that reverting to any of the version 9 flash players made settings manager responsive again, although that leaves me with a lot of pages that will not work correctly due to needing the most current flash player. I can also utilize the settings manager if I use portable Firefox. After reading this thread I logged out of my computer user account and logged in as a different user, oddly enough settings manager was totally responsive. This problem keeps me from using websites that do video calls and web conferences online. The day that I upgraded to the current flash version 10.0.22.87 the settings manager worked correctly, 2 days later it had stopped responding. This is a Sony laptop, running Vista Home Premium. If settings manager works with a different user logged on it obviously is not the computer, or the registry that has problems, I have also tried running Firefox in safe mode so all addons are disabled, that did not work either.I do not have this problem on a machine running XP. Any help appreciated.
I am having the same issue running Windows 7 (64 bit) and using firefox (which is a 32-bit brower). Everything with flash player works except the setting's box. Have used the settings manager on the Adobe website and increased storage space for specific sites, but can't activiate my cam in chat rooms. Adobe support has been no help at all. They suggested using internet explorer in private mode (as if that is really going to fix the problem) and then they tell me to use a 32 bit brower (I've have already told them 3 times I AM using a 32 bit brower)
patf, I am having the exact problem...I did a clean install of win 7 64 bit and installed the lastest flash player plug in. I use both FireFox 3.5 and IE 8. Both crash on settings manager right when I click the cam tab. I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash player with same results everytime.
Hello Adobe are you listening, this is an ongoing problem and no solution except using an old version of Flash Player.
I get around the issue by using Portable Apps Firefox, this contains a Flash plugin and by default the older version is used even if the version installed on the computer is newer. Just install portable apps to a folder in your documents and launch whenever you know you will need access to a working settings manager. Any Version prior to 10 works correctly on my machine, however, some web pages will not work correctly that way.
