A step in the right direction at last.

Although I still use the free Flash Cookie Cleaner.

A lot of folks have been posting in the Adobe Flash Community Forum that the latest 10.3 release is not positioning flash content correctly. If you visit a website that has flash content, it will play in the upper left corner of the screen and block access to the Internet Explorer menu bar, the Sign Out link in Yahoo Mail, or anything else that would normally be in the upper left corner.

A moderator on the Adobe Flash Community Forum blamed everything from bad video cards to failure to enable hardware acceleration to failure to disable hardware acceleration to using Internet Explorer instead of Chrome browser. So far it appears that Adobe has failed to take ownership of any problems with the 10.3 release.

If anyone has downloaded 10.3 and is experiencing flash content positioning problems or any other issues, you can uninstall 10.3 using the official Adobe Uninstaller. Reboot. Then reinstall the last good version 10.2.159.1 from the Adobe Archives. This will be a zip file. You'll want to use the flashplayer_win file if you need the plug-in or the flashplayer_winax file for the standard ActiveX install.

I saw a listing of known issues with this release of Flash Player, so decided not to download it.

Sounds good for those of you who are privacy minded. Hopefully there's some bug fixes and what not hidden away in there too, so if you have Flash, upgrade.

All

To those who have downloaded 10.3 and are having problems if you click Tools (i.e. the gear icon), click on Internet Options-Advanced and then check the box for "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering", then close IE9 and re-open, matters are considerably improved. Its' not perfect (you will find if you open embedded flash content to full-screen mode and then go back to the web page (i.e. hit Esc) there are misalignment issues. However it makes web browsing in IE9 tolerable until Adobe get this fixed.

Very dissapointing that this was rolled out with so many inherent problems.

I am one of the ones affected by the bugs in the latest update with flash content displaying in the upper left part of the screen when using IE 9. I have read the work around but I think I will wait for a hotfix which I believe Adobe is working on.



With Flash Player 10.3, reports indicate that systems with Intel HD Graphics adapters running Internet Explorer 9 are the only systems impacted by this particular bug.
