    Thanks Apple for calling out Adobe on their crap and forcing them to improve. ;)

    Hardware?

    still can't get the settings window for the camera to respond to clicks. Uninstalled old flash, reinstalled update, no go. Any ideas?

    Now I'm actually going to update Flash. It's been... uh, too long since the last time I updated.

    This has been going on for awhile -- not sure what's up but in firefox you can click on those buttons just fine so might just be a safari issue.

    You don't update flash at your own peril, with all the exploits and security holes they've found in that hunk of junk... And don't say "but I run OSX, not Windows!", because that's a false sense of security.

    I was asked to update yesterday, but cancelled, because usually those updates are worthless, but now that I read this thread - def updating!! Thanks! :D

    You mean the settings window that shows in the browser in place of where the Flash video/camera would be? If so, right click there, go to Global Settings > Camera and Mic (tab) >Camera and Microphone Settings by Site. Then add the website to the list, then under "Camera and Mic Access" select "Allow". I hope that solves it.

    After I installed 10.3, my temps went down from 70+ degrees to 50-60 degrees. Crazy.

    Safari also runs much smoother all-around. The elastic effect used to lag which made that feature really annoying and scrolling used to be laggy as well. Now those things are barely noticeable (if even there at all). I have no idea how flash affects my browsing experience when most of the websites I visit don't use Flash (unless Facebook and forums use Flash and I was not aware of it).
