Does anyone have any idea why some Flash sites work perfectly on IE on Mac OS X and why others don't? I get the error message telling me that I don't have the necessary plug-in and that I should get it at Macromedia's site. After locating and downloaded version 5.0r53 of the Macromedia Flash Player for Mac OS X and installing I still get the erorrs. I can't figure out why some sites load fine and others get the big 'no way'. I'm runnin OS X (10.0.1) on a G4. Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks for the message. That's actually where I started. I followed the directions about three times and still get weird results: some sites load fine, others give me the error-no plugin message. Are you running OS X?

No I'm not, I'm still back in the stone-age of 8.1 :D

I have 8.5, 8.6 and 9.1 but it doesn't like my g3 upgrade card, either OS will only boot for a couple of days before going south :(

I'm savin up for a dual 533 though, probably get one in a couple of months :D

...let me just tell you: you're going to LOVE the G4. And OS X is u-n-b-e-l-i-e-v-a-b-l-e.
