What setting are enabled in Firefox? Goto Tools>Options and click the content tab. Both Javascript and Java should be ticked. Also did you download the Flash player through Firefox when it prompted you? Sometimes this dosent work correctly and you should go to the Adobe website and download the one for Firefox and install. I have visited both websites with my Firefox browser with no problems.

Any help I can provide just ask.

system
 
I have Windows XP home edition
Sony Viao pc with Celeron processor
Service pack 2
McAfee protection/antivirus
Problem just started. I was previously able to veiw You Tube videos. My wife and kids want to go to Disney.com, but that site and now others say we either have JavaScript turned off or need updated Flash player. When we try to download Flash Player 9, it seems to load, and shows up on our programs, but will never play, and the same site say we still need it.

What browser you using? See the Firefox post above

Browser
 
I was using IE 6, but I kept reading to upgrade to the new IE 7. It loaded all fine. I still tried to download Flash player 9, and performed all the suggested checks and fixes, and still it wont run Flash, and all websites say I need to upgrade to FP 9. But I did...

My problem is that I can download the Flash player on my desktop...and everything works fine. If I switch to another desktop (both of which have admin privileges), then I get the same error mentioned in the above posts regarding the need to download the Flash player. If I remove the Flash player and try to re-install it from another desktop, it doesn't install. Using IE7.

I had the same EXACT problem.......
 
Every time I visited certain sites it would say i didnt have the latest version of flash player or javascript was disabled...my computer said differently... we couldnt play games or veiw youtube or even read my emails... 2 weeks later and after trying EVERYTHING advised, I unistalled my "security" thingy (mine was MACAFEE) and everything is back to normal! Its worth a try , it worked for me!!!!!! GOOD LUCK! I KNOW HOW U FEEL!

Same Issue with javascript, except I have a mac
 
hey. i made the mistake of trying to download flashplayer onto my imac running OS X. now i have tried to uninstall flashplayer, supposedly that worked, but now whenever i go to certain sites, i cant use them, like youtube, msn games etc. what am i missing? it usually reads i need to enable javascript (which as far as i can tell is already enabled) or download flashplayer (which i no longer want to do). help

You need to download the proper flash program for the Mac system. you need to make sure that you have the proper Java for Mac installed and enabled....(check your browser settings as there may be a scripting security issue!)

There is two different things....
1)macromedia flash which is what you need installed to view in your browser and media player
2)flash player is a program that will replace your existing media player

is there any way i can just get things back to how they were before without downloading anything new? i dont really want anything microsoft related on here. here is what it keeps telling me now:

The page “JavaScript and Macromedia Flash Player Problems - SysChat” has content of MIME type “application/x-shockwave-flash”. Because you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can’t be displayed.

i would prefer to have my computer just as it was right before i made the mistake of messing with flashplayer. thanks

Sorry, I don't do MAC! Try a Mac site to solve your answers. I am not being or trying to be rude...just Mac has their own rules that they abide by and I have enough troubles trying to catch up with all the new ones with windows!
