Certain flash applications don't seem to work in my internet browsers. I've installed and reinstalled flash multiple times but it still doesn't work. Does anyone know what I can do?

What Antivirus or Antimalware do you have installed? Is it possible that would be blocking the Flash content?

Also, what type of router and/or firewall is the computer behind? Especially if you are on a corporate network, certain hardware security appliances might block content such as Flash files.
The only way to learn anything is to question everything.

Is this problem strictly on MySpace? I know there have been some bugs since they changed their audio player a while back. It could be a problem with MySpace, not Flash.

In addition to InterestinglyAverage's questions about what security software you are using and is that blocking flash

Certain flash applications don't seem to work in my internet browsers....


Can you be more specific about what flash applications don't work? Is it just Firefox with a problem? Internet Explorer? Opera? Chrome? Some applications work and some don't work - any details?

A lot of embedded videos also don't work such as youtube. Also I'm using Firefox, when I use Opera the players will show up but they won't play.

You know of course that Flash is different depending on the browser. So if you're having trouble with Flash on multiple browsers, there's something else going on that could be very difficult to troubleshoot. It could be anything.
