Flash player does not work; can not be able.

  • @leocg, So I do not know what to do. The way is to continue using Firefox just to open this link and nothing else, unfortunately. 😞

    Thanks anyway, Leo.

  • @pedrosantospaiva I've added the site as an exception in Chrome and it allowed me to run Flash on the page and now I could see its content.

    I tried the same in Opera but with no success.

  • @leocg I have the above website in my Firefox, its screenshot is as following:
    0_1511129765522_Opera Flash Problem a Website.png

  • @leocg, yes, in other browsers it works perfectly and in some asks if you want to run the flash. In the Opera does not ask the same thing and also does not run the flash. The strange thing is that so far it happens only on that site.

    With @shahramop the site worked equal here, just in firefox. Strange.

  • @pedrosantospaiva The problem with Firefox not showing the page content here could be related to a Flash issue.
    Anyway, no browser here gives any indication that Flash was needed to play the page's content and it should happen.

  • @pedrosantospaiva I mentioned that the above website in my Firefox worked well , because @leocg had told that it neither worked in Firefox having a dark ground, in addition to, in the Opera the flash player neither in the above website nor any other website works.

  • Tens of people either in Adobe- or Opera- or other forums communicated the above flash player problem and complaints and this is the question why Opera does not respond? why it does not fix the problem? and why the opera support does not respond to the email in connection with the complaints?? I ,as one of tens users, have so far sent them several email along with screenshoots that show the problem, does the Opera consider its forum and the problem and complaints of the its users?? some workouts here are useful and some of them not only waste the time but also could damage other browsers and the window as repeatedly deleting the softwares, -files..... in window, does not the Opera know it??

  • Try this workaround: It works for me. You may have to close the tab for some sites then go back to the site after doing this, but it will work.

  • Seriously, I am getting so sick of Opera and Flash not playing with each other every time there's a bloody update. This problem happens time and time again. You'd think they'd have figured it out by now. I'm seriously considering going back to Chrome if Opera can't get its game together. I can't even listen to a bloody hockey game because Opera won't allow Flash to play.

  • @shahramop There's no email for contacting support since Opera doesn't offer individual support. The support for Opera's products are these forums and the blogs.

    And no, they probably will not reply to every issue reported on those places.

    Remember that those issues are happening due to changes in Chromium and all browsers based on it are having to deal with those problems somehow.

  • @leocg Yes there is, to communicate the bugs , it is in Opera websites, as following:
    And they tell only, as following, that it is a kind of bureaucracy in order to make formality and not to consider the problems, in addition to, they are not informed over the problems in this forum?? what to do with the Chromium? someone told me in this forum to download Chromium to prove the flash player plug-in!!! because it has the same, plug-in flash player, if the Chromium has such problem and why is advised to download it??!!(in addition to that the Chromium has security problem and the Security Suite blocks it and if someone uses those free anti virus should face problem) if chromium has such problem, it means that the Opera does not fix the problem and does not respond to the users??!!

    This forum is basically for users to help each other and they do it based on their own experience and not every time a solution for one will be a solution for others.

    About Chromium and Flash maybe you would like to read this roadmap

  • @leocg This email address(DNAWIZ-2246.), connected to, is not a personal email but also belong to Opera bug report wizard page having sent to me, by this page of the Opera, that communicated by Opera itself to the public, and so, I do not understand why I can not post an email address which is announced to the public by Opera itself??!! and it could led to spam to me?! and so, the issue is this, tens and hundreds of people using this page and email have already communicated the bug and problem to the Opera; the Opera is informed from the problem, and despite why in this Opera forum are advised strange workouts to people wasting their time; as uninstalling, reinstalling software,,,,flash player...various files in window??!! instead of telling directly and honestly to the people that the problem and bug takes origin from the Opera?! as if the Opera users have been as mouse laboratory of the Opera by this forum! in addition to, I know well that I must not post any personal email in a forum or public.

  • @shahramop I warned you to not post email addresses here, sorry.

  • This post is deleted!
  • @shahramop quite confused why that wouldn't work. maybe try the workaround slytheringirl suggested in her post maybe that will work for you then.

  • @zione I agree with you!

    @leocg , I do not know if the problem is in the flash player because I am using Firefox 57.0 and in the address bar itself there is a button asking if you want to use the flash player in the site or block. This should appear in Opera too, but for me it does not appear and for many other people here in this post (pop-up).


    In Google Chrome (62.0) the site also does not work. I do not know what the problem is with the Opera and Chrome code.

  • @pedrosantospaiva

    @davehawley said in Flash player does not work; can not be able.:

    Go to your Windows Control Panel and double click the "Flash Player" option. When the applet opens, click the "Updates" tab.
    Do you have a "PPAPI Plug-in Version" listed there at the bottom?
    If not, there is no way Flash will work with Opera.

  • Just reinstall the Flash player and restart your browser, it works for me.
