    It still requires that you have the line that reads:

    ProtectedMode=0

    in the file mms.cfg in directory %windir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash for 64-bit W7 (%windir%\system32\macromed\flash for 32-bit W7). You must use an elevated Notepad (Run as Administrator) to update the file. I originally found this advice on page

    Adobe Forums: How do I troubleshoot Flash Player's protected mode for Firefox?

    That page still contains the same advice as of moments ago.
    This workaround should not be needed as this update is suppose to fix the crashing problem.

    Solution 1: Update to Flash 11.3.300.262 (released June 21)
    Adobe has just released an update that they believe fixes this issue.
    I have not seen this problem on my systems so can't tell if it is fixed.

    Hi All

    I am still suffering with IE, still being told incorrect version of Flash.

    IE installed Ver.9.0.8112.16421 Up Date Ver. 9.0.7 (KB2699988) Cipher Strength 256bit.

    O/S 64bit win7 Ultimate

    I'm like that Oozlum bird going around in ever decreasing circles, I have installed Opera and it works fine but it is not for me, so I uninstalled it. I have tried reinstalling IE but it tells me I have a newer version installed.

    What version does IE report?

    Find version | Flash Player

    What is saying incorrect version of flash? A certain website? What is the exact error?

    That's a different issue, Jim. That has to do with a conflict between RealPlayer & Flash. I don't know if I ever had the conflict because the first I knew of it was the day a FFx update got automatically pushed out to my system from the Mozilla folks that disabled part of the RealPlayer plugin.

    The problem I am commenting on is the one where Flash things refuse to play. It's not really a crash. Videos just silently don't play. I think it was a good 5 days that I thought there was some transient problem with the web sites I was visiting before I finally did some research & found out about this new Protected Mode thing in Flash.

    When I posted last night, I had tested this latest Flash 11.3.300.262
    with a mms.cfg file that did not have the line that suppresses Protected Mode. Flash did not play videos. So I reinstated the line & poof, videos started playing. So as far as I can tell, the only thing Protected Mode protects against is playing Flash videos at all. I guess they can't hurt you if they don't play. Must be Adobe's definition of protection . . .

    Hi

    I never got that far, went to look and found for some reason the latest installation was not enabled, turned it on went and did a check and all is well, bit of a mystry as I never disabled the add on.

    After reading the Adobe site, I see you are correct. It seams Protected Mode and Real Player don't get along and that problem is not fixed. The update was for another problem with lots of crashing. I don't have Real Player on my system so have not seen any problems with FF 13.0.1 and Flash.
