I'm losing my mind. I recently updated to flash 10 and now my wordpress media uploader won't work. This is an essential part of my business. How do I downgrade to 9? I love Adobe, but seriously you guys need to fix this, it's been circulating for months.

BTW the change was required due to a security hole in Flash Player, so there is nothing we can "fix". See also info here http://theflashblog.com/?p=463

Final comment. There is a fix for Wordpress available http://www.bit-101.com/blog/?p=1608 So instead of downgrading Flash Player I would suggest to patch the Wordpress instance.

Good night.

When you downgrade, you will have to uninstall the current version that you have installed using the Flash uninstaller program

The installer for Mac ppc for Flash 9 doesn't work - just gives me two files - a plugin and an .xpt. Where do I put them??

People swear by version 9.47. So here is a link. download and install. this does have an executable file. Be forwarned...if you watch HULU this version will not work. Hulu needs the newest (piece of crap) version 10 to work.

I came across this website while searching for a solution to a similar problem.

Stumbled upon a solution hence thought I would post it incase it helps.

For some reason I cannot access the Adobe website. I get a Error on the page. However the above link should give some direction to uninstall and re-install the flash player.

Hope this helps.
cheers!

Flash Player 10 broke the flash uploaders for Wordpress and Joomla and probably many others. You would think it would be backward compatible, but it is not.

This site describes in detail how to remove 10 and downgrade to 9. http://web.compulog.com/index.php?opt...

I can't upload attachments in Gmail. I would much rather have a security hole with a Flash player that works than one that simply doesn't.

I am trying to divest completely from Macro$#|T. Installed Ubuntu 9.10 and loved it, right up until the part when I tried to use my BlogTV account and Flash freezes my Firefox session. Even after adding the web site exception I still can't touch any of the settings. Seems Adobe broke it in "upgrade" to v10 and apparently has no intention of fixing it. This is why I need to UPGRADE to v9.

Only question that remains is how much Adobe was paid to pull this little stunt?

I am running IE9 in Windows 7 and recently updated the Adobe Reader to 10.5.1 version. Now I can not print PDF files and when I convert them to a word doc it still prints just a blank page. I have updated IE9, Windoews 7 and Adobe Reader and still can't print. I did do a test print page in Windows and a Printer test page and both printed out just fine. What's going on here????

No one is talking about any PDF Readers in this thread, and you should not be using Adobe PDF readers anyway!
