A place to keep my work.
cannot upload
Published on March 8, 2017 By Uvah In Personal Computing

Recently updated Flash player for Chrome because the plugins would not load and that temporarily fixed the problem. Now its doing the same thing. Using TinyPic for image hosting instead of photobucket (too much of a hassle getting it work right). Installed FireFox and it loads the plugin on TinyPic but not here. Chrome won't load any plugins at all. Both the browse for preview and file are blank, no plugin loaded. What the blank can I do to correct this. No sense making skins if I can't upload them.

I always run beta Flash (from Adobe Labs, you can get NPAPI and PPAPI versions), and check 'Always Allow' for Flash in Chrome "about:plugins"

(Seems to work, when I remember to do it! )

Test:

I will let you know. Thank you.

EDIT: Downloaded both the ppapi and the npapi versions and installed both. Its working again but for how long...?

Use Firefox.. None are perfect, most become annoying at some point.  If your really adventurous, try opera, Avast safe browser.. others even.. I quit using google because of things like you describe here..  MS Edge Im just not sure about..

You're welcome.

Apparently Chrome 57 will restrict all access to the Plugins page!

Vivaldi Browser is looking better every day!

If Chrome restricts access then goodbye plugins? That sucks!

firefox 52 (released yesterday) is supposed to kill all npapi plugins bar flash.

If need be, you can re-enable them:

Go to about:config from the address bar, right click and create a new Boolean, name it plugin.load_flash_only and set the value to False

Fortunately I still use Chrome as default but keep Firefox as a backup. Good to know for future reference. Thanks fictitiousfellow.
