Firefox question
Posted by: DP
Date: March 29, 2012 07:48AM
Going to my email this AM I get this:



I have FF 11.0 and it is Yahoo Edition 1.8. Knowing how some of you all feel about it should I click on it and update Flash?

if you think you need the new Flash player, go straight to the Adobe site without clicking the link.

[get.adobe.com]

OK, thanx. This is the first time I've seen this ever so I thought I'd check. It's on my email window not an email itself so I think it's from FF or Yahoo.

check your Firefox plugin versions with this page:
[www.mozilla.org]

it will show green for up-to-date, orange/red for outdated, and gray for unknown.

you can also look in your hard drive & check the versions

Macintosh HD/Library/Internet Plug-ins/

Silly question 1: Did you install the new Flash pluging after downloading it?

Silly question 2: Do you have a Flash-blocker add-on installed?

Silly answer 1: Yes. I closed FF and installed it then restarted.
Silly answer 2: Not that I know of. This is the first time I have ever seen this notification in all the years I've been using Firefox and Yahoo!
Sorry-I type fast. What I wrote last was meant to read that I still get the window saying my browser is blocking Flash.

i never knew there was a Yahoo-branded Firefox browser!

i downloaded their 8.0.1 setup dmg and dragged the app to my desktop.
then i launched it and allowed it to update to 11.0.



it appears to be newer than yours, 1.10 (Yahoo version)

i also disabled the Yahoo toolbar.

logged into Yahoo mail, no warning like yours.

is there a reason you're using their build instead of Mozilla's?

I have done nothing other than to install FF years ago after I was getting weirdnesses with Safari. The email service is thru AT&T/Yahoo when I got DSL thru them with a bundle with Dish TV. I have been with Comcast now for a year and have updated FF once or twice since then but have never got this message before. How do I unblock Flash? BTW, I tried Safari and got the same message when I access emails.
