    I recently downloaded and started to use safari
    For some operations it tells me I need the latest flashplayer despit having the latest version of adobe on my laptop that functions fine when I use thr windows browser
    When I try to dowload the flashplayer it tells me to close Safari in order to download it even with all the windows closed.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Sorry but where are those commands?
    I just press the X and it closes, doesn't give me options.
    It's just strange that one browser can access but another cannot.

    I can't really tell if you're using a Mac or a PC, so this may not be relevant. But I was having plug-in troubles with the latest version of Safari on my Macs (home and work laptops both), I was unable to play videos including YouTube, Netflix, or anything else.

    What solved it for me was downloading the latest version of the Silverlight plug-in. No problems with video anymore.

    I have no idea if the PC version of Silverlight will fix it for you if you're not on a Mac.

    Good luck.

    You're not using Safari for Windows... are you?

    Please tell me you're not.

    Get a real browser; get Chrome.

    Macs come with Safari installed, so he wouldn't have had to download it. Sounds like Windows to me.

    I am a mac user and I really don't care much for Safari. I have been using Firefox (Mozilla) for years and that has worked well for me.

    Safari bites. I know Chrome and Safari share a similar rendering engine, but Safari has always been buggy for me both on Windows and Mac. And it crashes often when visiting Flash heavy sites.

    ^^ This. I switched when Firefox 7.0 came out, and the difference is remarkable. No more problems with Flash, and way less crashes.

    Agree, i used safari once and i really don't see the superior factor in this browser. Firefox seems to be the most stable and Chrome is much more lightweight, however Chrome tends to make me crash the flash applications pretty often.icon_rolleyes.gif
