    Safari working in one account but not the other
    Here is a strange problem, I can't seem to get safari to display a website with flash in it in my main admin account but if I choose a new standard account then the site will display it. I know this would be considered a "flash" problem but I am unable to get any resolution from the flash forums so I thought I would try here.

    Anyone ever experience the same thing?

    Do you have the latest Flash update installed to your Admin account? Download LINK

    Yes, I do.

    It's really strange. I am fairly new to mac's so excuse me if I come off as a nuub.

    You may not have the Adobe Flash extension for Safari loaded though..check this download LINK and install it. Let's see if that fixes it.

    Okay, I followed the link and installed. Rebooted my machine and still it doesn't work.

    What's next?

    This is getting a bit strange. Something else is going on.... Let's try to reset Safari from the Admin account. Click on the Safari top menu and select "Reset Safari". A dialog will open asking if you're sure and also a list of items to reset. Choose the items you wish to reset. I would go ahead and reset all to make sure.

    Yes, I have done this. Several times in fact. Still nothing.



    Any other ideas?

    Well, I ended up solving this on my own. I found a program called Kill Flash Cookies (KFC) ran the program and it found 4 cookies. Once it was cleared everything works great! I can see flash movies now.

    I just wonder what was in the cookie that was blocking the site.

    Thanks
    Jay

    Thanks for posting back. It appears you had some rogue cookies that were blocking flash sites. You might want to open Safari Preferences, and go to the "Privacy" tab, then place a check in the box that says "Block Cookies from third parties and advertisers".
