    Whenever I visit a site that uses flash, the site will load but I just get a blank space in the flash applet are. This is a constant problem on any site that uses flash. I know it's my fault. I was uninstalled some adobe products today, and I must have accidentally deleted something important. I tried to reinstall flash, but the problem remained. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help, guys, I really appreciate it.

    Thanks for the response, but unfortunately the uninstaller didn't fix the problem. After I uninstalled flash, sites recognized that there was a flash element to the page, but after I installed flash I got the dreaded blank space once again. Sites no longer recognized that anything flash was going on. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Did you use this download:
    http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

    I ask because I had a similar problem in Firefox in Linux. Downloaded from a link on another page that didn't work right. This download at the adobe site did work however.

    Is it with safari? Could you try another different browser?

    Weird. I just installed Firefox (I'm a devout Safari user) and flash works fine. So I suppose that's a solution... but ideally I'd like it to work in Safari.

    Thanks for the idea!
