I downloaded and installed Adobe Flash and I kept seeing "Adobe Flash Not Installed" in all the listed browsers. So I went to
And hit the check button. I get
Sorry, Flash Player is either not installed or not enabled.
Please go to step 2.
Going to step 2 and following the instructions. I am not being asked to close the browser. Step 3 for FF says you need to click to activate. In all cases I do not see any request to click anything. I just get this:
To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.2.0 or greater is installed.
Essentially I can not use Abdobe Flash with any browser on this system. They all think it is not installed. I do not know how or when it stopped working but no amount of re-installing the latest version is helping to resolve this, and so I hope someone can clue me in on this forum.
I know exactly what's happening. I run into this a lot with web sites that are still using Flash (and really should get on the ball, but haven't!).
I do this in Chrome, and you can probably do it in all browsers. You can allow Flash by enabling it in your browser for certain sites.
Enter chrome://settings/content in your address bar.
Go to the Flash section, and change it from "Block sites.." to "Ask first."
Now, when you go to your site, you'll see the "missing" area asking you to install Flash, but if you CLICK IT ONCE, you'll get a Chrome notification that asks if you want to allow it to run, and you can click the ALLOW button.
Problem solved. Good luck!
great solution! it works for me!
All browsers block Flash by default and browser vendor changes in recent browser versions are making it more difficult for the browser to detect the Flash content and prompt the user to allow Flash in the browser.
You don't indicate if you've tried the recommendations at the following:
If you haven't, please try those. If it's still not working, please provide the exact link to the content that isn't working and I can attempt to troubleshoot further.
For more information on browser changes with regards to Flash see:
Essentially, if Flash Player installed successfully (meaning no errors and install time), and Flash content isn't display, the issue is going to lie with the browser (blocking Flash), and/or with the content not confirming to the various Flash detection changes implemented by the browser vendor.
So I got away around it, i realised flash was not enabled for the website i was trying to access. I was actually running a bigbluebutton installation and encountered this when i tried accessing mydomain/check from the brower.
Type this in the address bar chrome://settings/content/all and search for the website that is giving you the issues. then click to open the permissions. then allow the flash option .
Remember Flash Player is gone in 5 months. Best to make alternative plans for these sites.
