    If that does't happen then ya got troubles..

    works on all latest versions opera with vpn on or off

    Hope this helps

  • For some reason latest Opera 49.0.2725.39 (PGO) for Windows does not give "allow Flash" button or dialogue on URL bar for number of web sites.

    This is what I had to do. I went to settings and manually added the URL for each web site where I wish to allow Flash. Only that way I manage to get the Flash run on those web sites.

    I hope this helps others to get this solved. Unfortunately there are number of great services still relying on Flash.

    What about the flash test site, do ya halfta add manually ?..

  • @shahramop Okay. Do you have anti-virus software? Sometimes that can interfere. Usually it's the part of the software the scans pages for for dangerous stuff. Maybe try disabling it.

    Also, you said you already uninstalled and reinstalled Opera. You also said that this is happening on multiple computers. But, just for good measure, try a standalone installation. Launch the Opera installer, click "options", set "install path" to a folder on your desktop, set "install for" to "Standalone Installation (USB)" and install. See if flash works that way.

  • Didn't see it. What OS are you using (also 32-bit or 64-bit) and what version of Opera (32-bit or 64-bit)?

    Also, what is the brand and model of your cpu?

  • Try modifying Opera's shortcut to specify the path to flash explicitly. Then launch Opera with the shortcut.

    "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" "--ppapi-flash-path=C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer64_27_0_0_187.dll" "--ppapi-flash-version=27.0.0.187"
    

    (adjust the paths for your system of course)

    You can try adding:

    --allow-outdated-plugins --always-authorize-plugins
    

    to the command too if you want. This shouldn't help for flash, but you can give it a shot.

  • Also, try going to chrome://site-engagement/ in Opera. For any of the sites in question, bump the base up to 100 to see if that finally causes Opera to bring up the "allow flash" bar below the tab bar for that site. Or, try setting it lower or to 0. Think setting it to 0 will clear the URL from site engagement.

    There might also be a way to use flash group policies for Opera. See the group policy part in this post for more info. You'd have to have Windows that supports gpedit and find some way to modify that template for Opera. Even then though, I'm not sure if Opera supports that like Chrome does.

  • Hello friends!
    I saw most of the posts in this topic and I was appalled.
    The amount of crazy things that the user has been asked to do, including renaming the profile to test if it was not in his profile, regardless of whether he has knowledge and what tools (programs) he will use.
    I noticed the same problem in all versions of Opera in both Windows and Linux and even have a topic I opened a few days ago (https://forums.opera.com/topic/23278/none-of-the-versions-of-opera-runs-a-site-with-flash-even-in-the-block-exception-list) and so far no answer.
    The fact is that both Chromium (where the Opera engine comes from) and Chrome work perfectly with, and in the case of Google Chrome the site has to be in the flash block exception list.
    And this in both Windows and Linux, remembering that Chrome has flash embeded, but you can through parameters instruct it to use an external plugin.
    And for God's sake someone there spoke to have the NPAPI flash installed for Opera. Only those who use NPAPI are the browsers based on Firefox!
    This is a design flaw.
    Neither the exception list work instead work on Chrome.
    If it worked until some versions ago and it works in the browser where the engine used by all versions of Opera comes out obviously it would have to work with Opera itself but it is not!
    Either the developers resolve the issue or stop using Opera when you need to use flash content.

  • @nvmjustagirl Flash test site worked as you explained on your previous message. Clicking the icon opened tool bar as it should. But similar tool bar did not became displayed on several web sites that I use.

    Trying with a clean profile is standard procedure in browser troubleshooting if the immediate obvious fixes fail. It immediately eliminates problems caused by changed settings or other extensions.

    There is another thread with what looks like the same problem here, so perhaps it is a bug in Opera 49.

  • I try to report in details what worked for me.

    1. I have updated Opera to version 49.0.2725.39 (PGO) for Windows. In my case I use Windows 7.

    2. Because Flash did not work after update, I downloaded Adobe Flash Player 27,0,0,187 installer.

    3. I uninstalled all previous versions of Adobe Flash Players from my computer, just in case.

    4. I closed all browsers, and then installed Adobe Flash 27,0,0,187.

    5. I opened Opera, went to Flash settings (see the attached image), and added the URL address for each site where I wish to allow Flash.

  • @davehawley I conducted a test here and I think I have a clue as to what might be going on but sincerely it's not practical and probably it's a bug.
    I made it with Opera Stable updated (49.0.2725.39) in Linux environment X86_64.
    As I did the update now I made sure if the problem persisted, that is, of being ignored what was in the exception list of the flash and the answer was affirmative.
    I quit the browser, renamed the folder where the original profile was, and started the browser that created a new profile.
    I went straight to the adobe test page (https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html) and it already appeared that it flash not enabled.
    I went into the settings and placed the URL in the exception list and reloaded the page "THAT WAS PERFORMED PROPERLY".
    I quit the browser and returned to the original profile and even removing and replacing this URL in the exception list does not work.
    From the result of this test I believe that there must have been some change in the structure of some file that stores the profile settings from one version of Opera to another and there is a transposition of these values 鈥嬧媋nd functionalities leading to the non-functioning of the exception list of the flash plugin.
    This occurs in all 3 versions, either Linux or Windows.
    The most immediate workaround for those who do not save the settings in the cloud is to somehow even list them in a text file to relate all open pages to manually re-type in the new profile.
    I would not run the risk of exporting data because it may happen that this bug is related to the data that will be exported which means more tests but I think enough for the developers of Opera to check it out, if they give the work of read these topics and all posts (I doubt)
    I did this manually (which gave me a hard time) and despite losing the history, bookmarks and addons installed the exception list NOW WORKS perfectly.

  • @serola Thanking you , I did it adding URL of each website(going in sitting), but it did not fix the problem.

  • @burnout426 Thanking you, I have already proved it, in my security suite(Bitdefender Internet Security) the Opera is allowed, the problem exists even though the security suite is disabled for some minutes, in addition to I repaired the Bitdefender(unistalling and reinstalling) but the problem exists.

  • @shahramop My OS is 64 bite, also my Oper is 64 bite

  • @serola I did it for two times, but the problem still exists, in all the website that uses Flash Player, there is a flash Player image on which must be click(or using rick) to enable it, but it does not work, it can not be enabled.

  • Try if this fix your's too.
