Leopard + Flash = Text Problem

I regularly play Scrabulous (Scrabble) on Facebook and after upgrading via Erase and Install, the text renders really weird. Is anyone else having a problem like this? I haven't noticed it in any other Flash app though. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey guys, I was having the same problem with Scrabulous, and I tried to install the update to the Flash player. I keep getting an error message during the install -- this is on 10.5.1 btw:

Error creating file.
1008:5,-5000 Access Denied Error

(Click OK)

Next dialog:

You do not have enough access privileges for this installation.

I have already run a Disk Utility repair permissions on my hard drive, still getting the error, and am logged in with my administrator account.

Any ideas?

The solution to the problem I had in the above message, in case anyone else runs into it --

Open Directory Utility, enable the root user account (under "edit"), set a root password
Log out of OS X
Log in with "Other" and enter root as the user and the password you set for the root account
Run the installer

Enjoy....
