Flash player and problems

I'm having a problem with Flash player 9.0 and the website Until last night I could upload and view the slideshows fine. I've uninstalled the flash player two or three times and I've checked on their website and tested the flash player out and it works fine until I try to view a or slideshow. I'm running Windows XP and Firefox 2.0. Last night Microsoft had some new updates to upload and once it did, I lost the capability to view the slideshows!

Thank you for any suggestions!

If you are using NoScript, you have to tell it to allow and

If you don't you will get the error message saying that you do NOT have the latest version of Flash installed.

Hope this helps.

Been there, done that!

Thanks! I had already done the latest download, uninstall and downloaded again and installed and it still doesn't work. I have NoScript but I added those sites to the allow list still doesn't work, even turned off the NoScript and I still can't see them! I checked out another site that does slideshows, Picture Trail, and I can see theirs fine! It certainly has me baffled! The updates from MS showed a Javascript logo so I'm going to check into that today!
Thanks again!
