Windows 7: Black Bar on Chrome Pages Using Flash

Black Bar on Chrome Pages Using Flash

Hey,

I get a black bar on the right side of the page whenever Chrome displays a page that uses Flash. However, all the buttons are at the proper positions, making navigation difficult. Basically, I have the problem from here. Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks

I did a quick google, and the consensus is to disable the Pepper Flash plugin (not all of flash, just this plugin)

Type about:plugins in the address bar and disable it under the Macromedia section

Don't use Chrome myself, so no screenshots ;)

Never mind. On one YouTube page, it does that black bar again, with the PepperFlash disabled. But not on other pages...

In googling, this is a common issue. I even see where Norton Identity Safe can cause this. Do you have the very latest release of Chrome (I know they update like every five seconds ). They are reporting this on the Chromium product forums as well, so it's likely they are working on it. A Guy

Ok, something strange is happening.
When I enable all 3 Flash thingies, Chrome automatically uses the PPAPI version, instead of the NPAPI version, which is normal.
When I disable PPAPI, it uses NPAPI, and on YouTube, the videos don't play.
HOWEVER, when I enable PPAPI, the YouTube videos play, but they play upside down...well, at least most of them.
Some work normally with PPAPI, but NONE of them work with NPAPI.

Sorry I don't use Chrome, so can't even begin to explain all that, lol. A Guy
