    You can try and see if reseting safari will do the trick.
    You can also try and delete the preference file for flash.

    Really appreciate your reply!!!! Okay so how do I go about deleting the preference file for flash? Where do i find that file? Does it affect the player somehow?

    Hi there... thank you for your suggestions man... I tried Firefox and Opera and both are updated! But it doesn't work at all... same thing goes for my Safari as well... I am not sure what is happen? Ever since my previous hard drive crash and I just replaced with a new drive with bigger capacity and use it for about 2 months already until now the problem arise... I'm really worry that my PB will give up on me man! Jesus....

    Sounds like a possible bad install/update. I forgot what the most recent version of Safari is, but check the Software Update again. One other thing I would recommend is uninstalling Flash, and redownloading it and reinstalling it again. Could be the one you have now is not working properly.

    How many users do u have set up on this machine? Do they have the same problem?

    If you don't have any other users, might be worth making another user and logging in to that account and testing the flash problems there could be a problem with your main account.

    I work as a computer tech fixing windows systems, if someone comes in saying that a website won't load, the first thing i do is make another account. See if the problem still occurs then you know its a problem with the system and not the user profiles

    My suggestion to you would be to make another account on your laptop, log in with it and see if the flash issues are occuring still. if they are it's another issue.

    Ok we can try and remove some folders but make sure there backed up!

    Go into hdd/library/applicationsupport/

    You should see a macromedia folder there? if you do move it to the trash.

    Relaunch safari see if it reinstalls flash for you

    I've come to realize that the problem lies with Mac OSX Leopard... I've tried with another Mac with Leopard doesn't work as well.... However, I tried on Tiger Mac OSX and it's working well and fine... Can someone tell me what is wrong with Leopard???
