Have you downloaded Flash for IE?
Firefox and Chrome use Flash specific to their browsers.
You might not realise it, but Flash comes with Chrome, needs to be installed in Firefox and needs to be installed in Internet Explorer. Flash in FF and Flash in IE are totally different files.
So the fact it works is Chrome and the fact it works in FF doesn't mean anything for IE.
One way to correct it is to install it in IE. That doesn't guarantee it works, but it won't harm. After all, "it will cease to work" doesn't really tell what happens. Sometimes it's necessary to run the uninstaller first. https://helpx.adobe.com/nl/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html tells more.
Thank all three of you for responding
The Adobe Flash Player for I/E is #220.127.116.11 - which is flash program #19 Active X. In the last few minutes I have uninstalled the program and re-installed it - while in Internet Explorer 11. I also have installed flash program #19 NPAPI - which carries the same @18.104.22.168 designation.
In fact many times over I have uninstalled the flash player and reinstalled it in an effort to get it to work in I/E 11. It simply will not work in my I/E11.
It works extremely well when I switch to Chrome or Firefox. Still makes no sense to me?
Try using the Flash Removal Tool.
PS, you didn't say which Windows version.
That link may not work on your version.
Since it are totally different programs, you can't say it doesn't make sense. But, indeed, it looks like it should work.
In https://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ click on "Test your Adobe Flash Player installation.". What happens? With me, on the next screen, I see a bumping F and it says I have version 22.214.171.124 installed. You see something else? That might be informative.
Does it make a difference if you reset IE (Tools>Internet Options>Advanced, and choose reset - or whatever it exactly is in English).
Again thank all who are responding
Dafydd: I used the uninstall tool you referenced - reinstalled and rebooted. Still no go. Kees: I went to the reset IE you referenced. This WORKED. Now, however I've lost my favorites bar at the top. So I now must try to find a way to reset the favorites bar in that location.
Boy - get one thing fixed and another messes up??? Thanks to all of you for you assistance!
will remove any addons you may have had. You may have had a PUP. Re-install your addons one by one to see if you find the culprit.
Recovered my 'favorites' bar
Folks, thanks to you all I can now play videos on my IE through Adobe Flash Player. As mentioned, once I reset the Internet Options as had been recommended, that somehow activated the flash player for my IE11 - but at the same time removed my favorites bar at the top of the page. It's taken a couple of hours but I've managed somehow to get it reestablished - and then quickly rebooted the machine to hopefully lock it in place. That appears to have worked.
As frustrating as some of this can be - it remains extremely interesting and so much more when you are able to solve a problem. Thanks again.
Flash Pre Installedin IE
I'm on Windows 8 using latest IE 11 browser. Flash is preinstalled with the browser. You no longer have to download anything for IE.
Sort Of, Updates To Flash Are Actually DL'd from Microsoft
If you're running Automatic Updates on your Win8 machine, you probably don't see it, but when a new version of Flash is released for IE on Windows 8.1, and 10, it shows up and is downloaded/installed on your machine using the Windows Updates mechanism. And if you choose to, it's still possible to manually download and install such updates. Just an example below:
And if you're using Firefox, the update still needs to be made separately from Windows Updates.
Hope this helps.
Adobe Flash Player will not download
I currently run Firefox and IE.Neither has flash installed.
I wanted to download flash player from the normal site for Firefox.I got as far as hitting "run" and then a small box came up, blank.Nothing in it but white.I had to hunt and find and special spot where I could directly download it and install it from the site(I cannot recall exactly where on it).It's now installed on Firefox.
Now for Internet Explorer,when I hit the address for Adobe it cannot display the page at all.I tried downloading an MSIE specific flash player exe.file and tried to open it within IE but it tells me my security settings won't allow the download.Can someone help me with this?
