Browsers/Mail :: IE10 - Disable Flash Through Manage Add Ons
Jul 9, 2013
When I disable Flash through "Manage Add-ons" I find that I can still play some YouTube videos (I assume using html5) but when the video ends my screen goes blank for a second and then the computer goes to the login screen. When I log back in all the applications that were open are no longer open. Is there any way to disable Flash in IE10 and not have this behavior?
The Manage Addon window in IE10 is not displaying correctly and there seems to be no way to resize the two panes that are not showing correctly. Do you think this would be a registry problem or do you think a reinstall of IE10 would override whatever setting is causing the window to display improperly. Would an uninstall and reinstall of IE10 be necessary or the best course?
WIN 8 - i tried to find the controls/settings for Adobe Flash Player - don't want all those animated ads running - does my browser (Google Chrome) affect that or Internet Explorer (which is now loading as MSN and i can't seem to change that-happened after i accidentally removed IE from taskbar - now when loaded from ''tiles' it loads MSN) anyway .. i was able to go to CP/downloads & saw i did 'disable' Adobe Player but the adds still run. Is there more than one type of ''adobe'' ?
I want to stop child from playing games and playing videos on internet. I am currently using Google chrome and Internet Explorer. I had disabled flash player in Google chrome but that was showing the option to enable flash player.children clicked on that and enable plugin again to play games on-line. Is there any other safe way that could be difficult for children to access.
This new sync tab feature in IE11 is handy. But it's also a bit annoying. I have about 7 or 8 PCs I use frequently and I re-install the OS all the time. So I end up with orphan machines that appear in IE 11 sync tabs and I can't seem to find a way to remove them. I also noticed that these tabs mysteriously disappeared on some of my machines.
My system got a virus/browser hijacker called qone8.com. McAfee did not detect it at all, removing it was a pain. One artifact that remains i the manage add-ons window pops up every time ie starts. I cannot find anything to fix this behavior. I have looked in the registry and found nothing. I would also like to find out how to completely remove unwanted entries in the manage add-ons windows. there should be a way to do this. I keep hearing of procedures to do this and all the options mentioned are always greyed out or never work. Hey Microsoft STOP GREYING OUT NEEDED FUNCTIONS!!! Image uploaded show how ie starts every time.
On a variety of sites -- YouTube, eBay, FoxNews.com, etc -- IE10 (the desktop, non-Metro version) crashes twice and then gives up, returning this error message:
"When a website causes a failure or crash, Internet Explorer attempts to restore the site. It stops after two tries to avoid an endless loop."
If you google that error, you get some MS suggestions on how to fix it in IE9. The auto fix doesn't run under Windows 8, and clearly doesn't apply anyway, and the manual suggestion to reset IE didn't work.
I have this problem here since ~2months ago, i try to open IE10 on Metro interface, and nothing happens! i already tried to put all defalut settings for IE, and still won't open. the IE10 on classic interface opens and works with no problems.
For some reason or other I can no longer access my email account Outlook.com (known formerly as Hotmail.com) when using the Internet Explorer10 browser, it will not go to the sign in window, although I can access the account by using the "InPrivate Browsing" option in IE10.
Not a huge problem as I can and do use another browser most of the time. I am curious as to why this has occurred more than anything?
After months I am still not able to run Flash in IE 11 Even on this page Flash Player Issues | Windows 8 I am getting
You aren't running Internet Explorer in Windows 8. For other troubleshooting tips, see Flash Player Support.
Had several NEW Windows 8.1 installs from scratch. but it just doesn't want to work... I have another pc and that one works fine... it's just on this laptop it refuses to work.. since MS doesn't seem to care
The Adobe Flash uninstaller doesn't uninstall it for Windows 8.1 with IE 11 Installing the latest beta won't work either. Download Adobe Flash Player 12 Beta for Desktops - Adobe Labs
The current version in IE 11 is V11.xx.xx.xx and I can't get rid of it..
I have a question for all the wise ones here, what is the best email program to use besides the windows mail that is installed in windows 8.1 I really do not like it, also how do I disable that program from checking emails.
IE Metro tile is missing from my metro start screen. It's not in the 'all apps' list either. when I go to program default, it is set as the default browser. I went through all the checks in the tutorial on here, but at best, I can only get the desktop IE tile to pin to start. I would rather have the metro version tile on my start.
I'm running Windows 8.1 Update 2 and I'm having a issue where Adobe Flash crashes randomly and get a script hang error. I have uninstalled Adobe flash and reinstalled and wiped cache in firefox and still haven't resolved the issue.
When I try to play any kind of video, even an ecard, I see a message that I need to get the latest Flash player version. When I click on the provided Flash icon, I am taken to a page showing me how to figure out why my Flash player is not working. I then find that my Win 8 operating system already has the current (as of 4 months ago, anyway) Flash player embedded somewhere in it.
how to make the Flash player work? Is there a special way to awaken it? Getting tired of being unable to make video content work.
When I stream television shows from the web, the picture is not smooth. It moves in spurts. It appears to move at normal speed for a microsecond then another, and another, ad infinitum. Flash player if comletely up to date.
When using Flash Player within IE10 in 8, audio and video synch is fine at standard small screen, but when I go to full screen they do not synch. The video is behind timing with the audio. It looks as though the video skips now and then trying to catch up with the audio. I dual boot with 7 and do not have a problem with Flash within IE10 there, so I'm assuming it's not hardware. This happens on any site using Flash.
All the settings in both Flash Players are the same. The only difference is that my 7 OS is 32 bit with 32bit Flash whereas my 8 OS is 64bit with 32bit Flash.
After I was needed to disable Chrome internal installation of flash due to my constantly Shockwave flash crashes now I see that youtube used hardware acceleration only when going to fullscreen no matter the quality. Other wise in the normal or the larger player the video info says "software video rendering and accelerated video decoding" ....
So I like to listen to espn podcasts. Yesterday I listened to one just fine. Today, its telling me "You do not have the correct Flash plugin installed. Get Flash Now" . I clicked on the link and it took me here Flash Player Issues | Windows 8
Basically, I am going in circles on that site. I don't get what is wrong.
