    Adobe Flash


    Hello,
    I've just upgraded to 15063 from 14393.970. How do I enable flash to stay on, on all sites? The only site I get the puzzle icon is Adobe's site. If I go to earthcam.com for instance no puzzle to allow it to play. Charter Spectrum's web site for speed tests won't show the puzzle either to allow flash. I've read that it changed to click to run but can't find how to use it. Thanks for your help

    This is only an example from this site, but try clicking the padlock on your sites and see if there is a permission for Flash.

    Edge doesn't use the Flash like Chrome & FF do. It uses activeX, like IE. I don't use Edge, so dunno!! Maybe somebody else???????

    I looked at Brinks tut and I'm not sure if the .reg file works. It looks like an older tut and can't find one more up to date...
    I saw his "puzzle" bar but it won't show when I'm on a page that uses Flash??? thx again

    It's enabled in the registry by the way.

    I'm doing something wrong. I upgraded my laptop too and same problem. So obviously I've missed something. Help, please.

    Ad Blockers seem to be the problem. Whitelist the sites and Flash works.

    @sneekez

    Yes.... lots of sites get cranky if you try to block their ad $$$ !! So the Bean-counters told them to block you!

    Glad you got it straightened out! Cheers! TC

    That sig refers to a nickname we used in the Chillout Room long time ago. No reference to B-Ball!
