Flash 11.7 appears to work just fine with all the galleries, so feel free to upgrade

I'm sure many of you have upgraded flash, and unfortunately, it has made viewing the galleries impossible. Since there's nothing we can do to fix flash as it's an Adobe problem, here are the instructions on how to roll back to the last stable version (and probably fix much of your web experience as a whole, because there's no way that it's just Pixel Vixens that's being affected by this problem).


First run the uninstaller:
helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstal...-player-windows.html
(Honestly, I just had to run the uninstaller. I didn't have to go into my registry or delete folders or anything)

Then download Flash version 11.4.402.287

download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/....402.287_archive.zip

Unzip it. It will have 2 folders: 11_4_r402_287 & 11_4_r402_287_debug
Open 11_4_r402_287, and it has installers for both Mac & Windows.

If you run windows, install these files:
flashplayer11_4r402_287_win.exe
flashplayer11_4r402_287_win.msi
flashplayer11_4r402_287_winax.exe
flashplayer11_4r402_287_win.msi

This will take care of at the very least Firefox & IE potential problems. Unfortunately, Chrome builds it's own flash stuff within the core, so there's not much I can do there, short of suggesting you downgrade the version of Chrome you are using.

For Macs, I assume that you need to run just flashplayer11_4r402_287_mac.dmg as "SA" = Stand Alone (it's just a standalone flash player for your computer) and the other file for Mac is an uninstaller.


Once Firefox and/or Flash have addressed the problem, I will update or delete this post as it will no longer be necessary.

:) No problem. I'm kind of pissed that they didn't test their shit. It appears to be nearly all flash photo galleries that are affected by this, not just the software we use here at PV.
