    If you have many extensions I encourage you to try this first.

  • @zalex108 I did it but nothing changed and the problem exists. only in my first PC( without doing the above process of deleting preferences) only one website that use flash player(audio files) started to work!! and other websites have the mentioned above problem.

  • @shahramop

    Hmmm....

    It works for all the sites I've tested.

    I cannot help anymore on this, the only thing maybe is to use an oldest version, but latest O48 fixed all my OStable Flash problems.

    Open all the extensions websites you have and save them as a SpeedDial folder if you try the other workaround - delete Preferences file -.

  • @shahramop If you have Adobe Flash properly installed (test with Chromium first) it's exactly the file to be renamed/deleted from this folder.
    The only side effect I had was having to reinstall all the addons.
    And of course the site with flash content needs to be inserted into the flash content execution exception list that is in the browser settings.

  • I've been playing with chrome://site-engagement more. Setting a site to 0, pressing enter and refreshing that page does indeed remove the site from the list.

    Also, setting a site to 100 (and pressing ENTER to apply it) and refreshing the site's page often allows flash to work without even adding an exception to the list. I say "often" as it doesn't work all the time. Sometimes I have to close out of the tab for the site and open it up again. Other times I have to repeat that stuff a lot of times or refresh the site page a bunch of times. Then it works, again without adding an exception.

    So, maybe try going to chrome://site-engagement and setting all the sites to 100 (making sure to press ENTER each time). Then, for sites where that still doesn't help, keep reloading the site for a while just to see if you can get it to work.

    If a site isn't in the list, go to the site first and then it'll show up. If it still doesn't though, you'll have to try the exceptions list. Then it should show up in the site-engagement list where you can then set it to 100.

    Not a solution. Just something to mess around with. Also, once it works for a page, I'm not sure if it keeps working (after a restart for example) yet. But, it looks like it persists.

    Thanks! The workaround works for me This is a great help!! .😃

  • @shahramop i had the same issue. what i did here was, that i simply clicked on "nu controleren" and downloaded flash player again. when i went to facebook games, opera now asked me to allow flash, which i did. Nothing happened here, BUT: using the site settings bar now, setting plugin+NPAPI plugin to allow, enabled the flash and i could display game content without problems.

  • @shahramop also, what i forgot to mention: after setting the sitesetting bar, open the page in a new tab. that worked for me.

  • You are right in every respect.
    And no amount of uninstalling and re-installing of browser, plug-in etc will make a difference.
    In brief, Opera are a bunch of arse.
    I will be using a different browser until an update fixes what is a cruel and unusual cockup.
    Courage.

  • I have the same problem. I installed Opera version 49.0.2725.39 yesterday and I can not access sites with Flash Player.

    I have done all the procedures contained in this post: updated flash player (27.0.0.187), have NPAPI and PPAPI, I already put everything in "100" in the link "chrome: // site-engagement" and even then, I have a specific site that I can not open! And in no time appeared the pop-up asking if I wanted to enable the flash player. And I also put several sites in the exceptions and even then this site did not work.

    I do not want to have to put all the sites on the exceptions list because Opera does not run the flash. Please help me or I will be unable to use the Opera browser.

    Thanks in advance.

  • @pedrosantospaiva You forgot the most important information.
