Re: Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.271

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'm glad you added the smiley...until I saw that I wasn't sure what to think of your post!

Okay, possibly this link will enlighten you to why it was a cost:

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.
