    I am using Leopard 10.5.8, Safari 4.03, and FireFox 3.5.3. Safari sites requiring Flash do not work and ask for me to upgrade to the latest version of Flash (which I have done), but those same sites work ok with FireFox which recognizes Flash). Am I missing something in Preferences for Safari? (Safari doesn't crash.)

    Thanks.

    Make sure "enable plugins" and all that is checked in the Security pane of Preferences.

    That worked. Thanks.

    :)I must have looked at that panel 3-4 times. A "duh" moment. OP error, etc.

    (Wonder why Flash worked in FireFox?)

    Thanks.

    No problem! Glad to hear that got 'er working! :)

    [edit] As far as I can tell, Firefox's preferences don't have an option for globally disabling/enabling plugins. But I could be missing something too!
