Windows 7: Is there a way to stop flash player from giving away my IP?

Is there a way to stop flash player from giving away my IP?

I want to stop flash player from giving away my IP address. I've used tor browser and ended up getting my IP founded out due to using a site with flash...
I then tried firefox and an add on that lets me change my IP address. I tried IP check and it ended up showing my IP address due to flash player.

Anyways my question is how do I stop or change the IP address that flash player shows??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
