    i think it's the mac. maybe not. maybe it's adobe.

    when i try to get onto some sites (more and more of them) i'm getting a message that i need to have flashplayer 10.1 to proceed. when i try to download flashplayer, i must be doing something wrong because it isn't working (first time that's happened - that i can't download something). it started with youtube videos. the 10-minute block. then some other sites.
    when i researched i found some forums that said that it works better through google chrome. i downloaded google chrome and at least youtube came back, but nothing else.

    more and more sites are asking for this version of adobe. it's driving me to drink.

    any other mac users having this problem?

    After you download it, are you then double clicking on the download to open the file? You still need to install the download.

    Unfortunately it is a known issue from one of the last updates.

    I still have some issues.

    Try uninstalling Flash player and reinstalling the beta version of flash player or the most recent version. The steps to uninstall can be found at the bottom of the page here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flas...10_square.html

    The beta version of Flash is on the top half of the page. You want the version that says for 64-bit Mac OSX

    I use Safari and have intermittent issues with the new Flash Player. The beta seems to work a little better than the other version. At least now when I have problems, I just get a pop-up window with an error and I can click Dismiss All and it goes away.

    You can also search the Apple support forums. There has been lots of discussion about it.
