Problems with Adobe Flash Player and Maxthon on Mac OS X


Recommended Posts

So I've the latest version of Adobe on my Mac OS X, but every time I open a page a page which requires flash, it says that my Adobe Flash Player was blocked because it was outdated with the option to run it or update it again(but why would I? I already updated!)



Any resolutions to this?

Hi Rei and all.
This worked for me:
1.- Check which version you have: System preferences -> Flash Player -> Updates. You should see Versión plugin NPAPI and PPAPI. If you don´t have then go step 2. If you have go to step 3.

2.- Download Flash player:

Step 1: Mac OS X 10.6 - 10.10.

Step 2: F 18 Mac for Opera and Chromium PPAPI. File should be "install_flash_player_osx_ppapi.dmg".
Of course you need to have installed "install_flash_player_osx.dmg".

3.- Access to plugins writing in URL bar "maxthon://plugins/" (without quotes) and click +Details (in the top right corner) and check for Adobe Flash Player. In my case there are 2 files (with respective version number).
A.- PepperFlashPlayer.plugin | PPAPI (type)  <--  OLD 
B.- Flash Player.plugin (located in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/) | NPAPI (type)  <--  NEW

So, disable the A one, and check Allow Always in order to force system and maxthon to use B plugin.
Maybe it´s good idea to restart your system.
