Just more problems with IE 8

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Shep, Jun 12, 2010.

    I have IE 8 as my default web browser and from time to time it won't do
    things and I get messages telling me it won't do it. The only problem is
    the reasons are not valid, I know this because I have checked and my and I
    do have the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player. The page works
    in Firefox and also in Google Chrome but not in IE 8 , I get this message
    when I try to open this webpage in my default browser IE 8

    "The Camtasia Studio video content presented here requires JavaScript to be
    enabled and the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player. If you are
    you using a browser with JavaScript disabled please enable it now.
    Otherwise, please update your version of the free Flash Player by
    downloading here."

    I've checked everything I can think of in IE 8 and I can't get it to work,
    for some reason Macromedia Flash and IE 8 don't like to work together.
    Does anyone have any fixes or work arounds for this issue?

    Are you using 64-bit IE8? It will not load add-ons. If this is the case,
    just use 32-bit IE8 instead. Both versions of the browser are included with
    Win7/64.

    First of all, it's Adobe Flash Player now. Second, are you sure about that?

    are you on some sort of "slave" computer on a network of a company or

    Which webpage?

    Some sites make assumptions about what your browser's capabilities are based
    on how they parse your User-Agent string. If they can't parse your
    User-Agent string (e.g. if it is too long or has nested parentheses, etc.)
    they may assume that your browser has no capabilities, hence no script
    support.

    Use UAPic to test with a User-Agent string that you know works with that
    site and see if your symptoms change.


    Good luck

    This would all sound great if the problem happened with other browsers but
    Firefox and Chrome work fine.. why is it when IE 8 has a problem everyone on
    here tries to blame everything else except IE 8 ??

    Just a question?

    It could be that the people who replied are not having that problem with
    Flash Player and IE8, and so they assume (correctly or not) that it must be
    something else causing the problem. Have you tried completely uninstalling
    using Adobe's uninstaller here:
    http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html
    then re-installing. Or maybe it's actually a JavaScript issue, a
    possibility mentioned in your first post. Are all Security and Advanced
    Settings in IE set to default values?

    Try using the same User-Agent string with your other browsers and maybe you
    will have half a point. Then provided the other browsers also used the
    ActiveX version of the add-on you could have the other half.

    BTW I made a typo. The add-on I'm suggesting you try is called UAPick

    Please. Flash player works in a browser: If it's not working in IE8, what
    browser is it working in? Is that browser your default or is IE8?

    Open IE8 (only!) to this page: http://www.fiddlertool.com/ua.aspx.
    Highlight/select all of the red text at the top of the page and copy it to
    your clipboard. (Also scroll down to see if an issue has been detected and a
    possible resolution offered.) Open a reply to this post & paste the contents
    of your clipboard into your reply.

    Now open IE8 (only) to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com | Select CUSTOM
    and scan | Install all of the critical security updates you've not installed
    yet (e.g., KB978542). If a Root Certificates update is listed in the
    Optional Software updates category on the left-hand side of the scan results
    window, install it to take full advantage of IE8's enhanced security.

    There are two different Flash Players that you need to install on your
    computer: one is the Flash Player Plugin and it works for all browsers
    except IE8.
    The other is the Flash Player ActiveX and it works only for IE8 32 bit.

    Maybe the ActiveX install is broken and the other is OK.

    Adobe use a braindead installer service that makes everything very
    complicated and can fail very easily.
    When you want troublefree install, just use these two URLs to download
    and run the installer program:

    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe
    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

    (the first is for IE8, the second is for the other browsers)

    Your answer is...?

    Your post's headers (Outlook Express 6.00.2900.5843) tell me that you still
    haven't gotten the computer fully patched at Windows Update. Do this now &
    before posting another reply, please.

    Now see the section entitled "Problem: Overlong headers result in HTTP/4xx
    or HTTP/5xx errors..." (and the related script) towards the very bottom of
    this page: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp

    Download/run the script then return to http://www.fiddlertool.com/ua.aspx,
    copy the new UA string to your clipboard & paste it into your next reply.
