Flash Player will Not Work in Opera 50

  • So, I have been working with the Adobe staff on their forum because I can get flash player to load in Chrome and Firefox with no problems. However it just will not work in Opera. I am running Windows 10 and Opera 50.0.2762.58. They have made all the suggestions of clearing cache, cookies, browsing & download history and rebooting. That did not work. I have added numerous exceptions under Settings/Flash/Manage Exceptions as they suggested. Adobe's site still says "Adobe Flash player is either not installed or not enabled." Certain FB games will not play either with the message "Flash Player is Out of Date." This makes Opera completely unusable and I guess I will have to go back to FF. Everything worked until the latest update (maybe a week or so ago). Since Adobe has pretty much exhausted all of their suggestions, this HAS to be an Opera problem. Esp. since Flash works in every other browser. I see this problem on many forums, but nobody seems to have a fix other than going back to a previous version of Opera. I tried to add screen shots here, but apparently that is not working.

    is it possible Google change the license of Flash Plugin so other browser cannot use it ??

  • Uh huh!

    It was working in Opera 50.0.2762.45 Win 8 X64, with the Flash Exceptions trick.

    Just 'upgraded' to v 50.0.2762.58 and Flash is currently dead.

    Hang on!

    My mistake (again!). Adobe test centre just saying I need to install latest (yawn!) version of Flash. But Flash IS still working in latest version of Opera with Flash Exceptions trick.

    OK. All latest releases of Opera and Flash now installed and working.

  • i'm on Opera 50.0.2762.58, adobe flash 28, i am using this addon
    no issues with flash.

    open desired website, set plugins+napi plugins to allow (popups too if needed) and that's about it. Open that webpage in new tab and flash content should play automatically.

    i have used this addon since Opera 49 and never have had any issues with it. Works just fine on flash game sites like on FB.

  • Flash works good here.. Except for this page lately..
    https://www.care2.com/send/card/5671
    it says:
    "You do not have
    Adobe Flash v.9
    or above installed.
    Without it, you will not be
    able to view your eCard.
    learn more "

    Note : one engiine/66 @ Virustotal says link is Malicious ! does FF works with this website ? *o well..
