Re: Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.271

Click for full size
Flash .271 breaks when run sandboxed in Firefox 14.0.1. Runs fine when not sandboxed.

Found a solution here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1018071?

To disable Protected Mode, add the following line to your mms.cfg file located in:

Windows 32bit: C:\windows\system32\macromed\flash
Windows 64bit: C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash

ProtectedMode=0

Protected mode changes permissions for flash and since I sandbox my internet facing applications I don't require it.

There's still plenty of people using 10.3.183.20 because of all the screw ups Adobe has been releasing since they started sandboxing and who knows other 'tweaks' with Flash 11.3.

And old/unsupported OSes like Mac OS X 10.5.8 and W2K SP4.

Let's back up here..if you are really running google chrome and go to this page

»get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

It will not even tell you versions or numbers..it will tell you only..

"Your Google Chrome browser already includes Adobe® Flash® Player built-in. Google Chrome will automatically update when new versions of Flash Player are available.

Do you have a different operating system or browser?

To learn more about the enhanced support for Flash Player in Chrome, including information for developers, see this TechNote."
»helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/···ome.html

And nothing else..so game over..you do not have to do anything or worry about version numbers.

It detects you have google chrome...so are you telling me you also run other browser than google chrome ? If that is the case then go to that site running that browser and get updated for it.

I am talking about this page here:
»www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Adobe gives the latest version of their software; by browser & by OS.

It VERY CLEARLY SAYS that the latest version of flash for Chrome on Windows is 11.3.300.265. At the top for version info: You have version 11,3,31,227 installed.

I have the absolute latest version of Chrome installed (21.0.1180.79 m) and it is not matching what Adobe says should be the latest version.

If what you say is true about internal numbers, then that page is totally useless since it does not accurately reflect the actual Chrome version number that I as a user would see. Where in Chrome do you see this "internal" version number?

Hey, I have an 11yr-old Win2K-SP4 box! I have Flash 11.1.102.63 (last version to install on Win2K) on it but to be honest I don't browse on it much. Mostly a backup machine these days. That said it works fine although a bit slow.

Yes J Fortune figured out how to do that version also in this thread and passed it along..do you recall having to do something similar?

Not sure WTF you are talking about? Chrome IS Google Chrome.

Your link shows how to edit plugins to override the built-in behavior of chrome to use one version over the other.

Maybe someone else can step in here that understands what I'm talking about instead of posting links that have nothing to do with what I've said.

That is a nice chart if you have Linux and want to know the differences between Chromium and Chrome on Linux distros.

But what does this mean from that chart?

"custom (non-free) plugin included in release" referring to Flash Player on Chrome. Chrome is a free browser so how is its builtin Flash plugin "non-free"?

All I did was download and install it. I did nothing special.

There's no Control Panel Applet in Win2K but above is what Adobe's website shows. Looks like I got the version wrong: it's 11.1.102.55.

Yeah, I get that GuruGuy See Profile is frustrated because Name Game is being loose with his words...he means Chromium when he says "Chrome". But what does that have to do with my wondering why that link you gave says Flash Player in Google Chrome is "non-free"? How can that be when Google Chrome is free? It doesn't make any sense.

What the ...is wrong the forum software? It won't let me edit so that Name Game appears correctly. It ignores the edit...I did 4 times and it just ignores it.

I've noticed that too, but at the time is was via a web filter proxy at work, the javascript was all screwed and froze, then worked then froze....I was loosing the normal responses I have grown used to. But as it was via proxy, who knows, script corrupting somehow?

I did not mean chromium.. I meant chrome and it is the one in the beta channel where they explain you can neuter out the "pepper flash" that google chrome has in the sandbox by deleting it (just go to chrome://plugins and disable Flash (2 files) - Version: 11.3.31.227 and Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31) The you go back to Adobe and it will not find the 11.3.31.227 so you can install the other one they have there which will not be working in the sandbox. It is low fat cause that then can be use with other browsers you might have installed like IE..but is stupid to do because pepper flash works great and in a sandbox for added protection to the user. You have then change it from the standard addition of Google Chrome..I hesitated to tell Guruguy all that..but if one want to be persistent on just how messed up and confusing the Adobe site is to all browser users...have at it..I certainly agree which is why I posted earlier I live without any adobe products.. As you see I also added a smiley.

Then if you really do that..you can run around with your head cut off like others are doing each time to update their flash thingie manually..and trying to figure out why it does not work or what version do I need..which give us these great long threads on each adobe flash update announcements ...Go figure.

I kind of like this link for testing Flash.
»www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
Lets you know what version you have installed, as compared to the latest versions for Windows, Mac, Chrome, Linux, etc.

(Why did I reply to myself? I didn't really need to know this).

It's the link I already suggested people use first to start out the "process" and at that link I can also block the advertisment that adobe has to smack you in the face.

Got this current version installed after what seemed a convoluted path compared to previous updates for Flash Player.

You are not alone on the action list not found

»www.google.com/#hl=en&rlz=1C2CHN···&bih=746

Most common reason seemed to be..Possibly you have tried to download and install the FlashPlayer version intended for Internet Explorer, instead of the plugin for Firefox. (See related thread /questions/859758#answer-228076 When trying to update Adobe Flash Player, message says no ActionList found. )

»support.mozilla.org/en-US/questi···r-228076

But have also seem similar error when some used the msi instead of the exe.
