    Flash really needs to die a horrible death

  2. Adobe is planning to phase Flash out …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The problem is, I don’t want adobe to phase it out. I want the internet to stop using adobe products. Especially since adobe started trying to trick people into installing bundled malware with their products

    Everything adobe creates is unstable bugridden garbage. I don’t know how they are still in business.

    Hi, I don’t see the Shockwave Flash object addon in IE11 on Windows 7, but when I go to sites which need Flash, I still am able to view the content. How do I disable the integrated Flash player?

  5. Do you see something in Control Panel > programs & Features?

    Can Some one Give me a link to install adobe on Opera please

  7. Embarrassed Person

    I’m embarrassed to ask, but how do you open the Opera menu? I am new to Opera so I don’t know where to look and all that.

  8. Open Opera. In top left corner, you will see Opera written. Click on it to open the menu.

    I still get gray windows that say Adobe Flash Player is out of date on Opera, but everything you posted looks good. Could there be something else I need to do? It works on my Chrome, just suddenly stopped working on Opera.

  10. You could try this. Uninstall Adobe Flash. Backup your browser settings likes bookmarks, etc. Reset browser and then try to install Adobe and then restore bookmarks, etc.

    you can just type chrome://plugins and enable adobe flash and go to “allways allowed to run” and problem solved

    Flash played caused me to have seizures. ^ so far, so no, I won’t be downloading any time soon.

    No you can’t. Chrome://plugins is no longer a thing in the latest versions of Chrome. You have to go to Settings > Show Advanced Settings > Privacy > Content Settings > Flash, and then choose Allow Sites to Run Flash or Ask First Before Allowing Sites to Run Flash. You can also set individual rules for websites in the Exceptions option. In my experience, flash on some sites will refuse to run untill you allow flash globally and even then, some still wont and you have to use FF or IE.

    For Opera, these instructions are utterly useless. Developer tools shows nada. This is just like Microsoft help. Version confusion, wasted time, useless instructions.

    this doesn’t work the site is down and not even available anymore,,,, how am i supposed to enable the damn thing if chrome://plugins isn’t even valid…

  18. Arlene Thomas

    I’ve been trying to get this stupid flash thing to work for 4 hours now. when I type in chrome://plugins it just says the site can’t be reached. Thanks for nothing.

  19. Sophie

    this doesn’t work anymore because chrome disabled the chrome://plugins page

  20. Thanks. Post has been updated. You have to use chrome://settings/content to control when Adobe Flash content is loaded. To check the Adobe Flash Player version installed type chrome://components.
