Irritating pop up message

Thu Jun 07, 2012 12:59 pm

When I start reviewing images of an item at a reseller's website the following is displayed which blocks the images I am viewing. It appears that the reseller is using the Flash Player to cause this. On the other hand the header being "Adobe Flash Player Settings" indicates that changing the settings will suppress this message, but I could not figure out how to. Anyone know how to stop this irritating pop up?

There should be a Control Panel Flash applet. Launch it and somewhere you'll find an option to automatically block local storage and you'll never see the popup again.

Actually, all you have to do is right-click on any Flash applet that is currently running, including the one that is generating this pop-up (you may even be able to just right-click on the pop-up). You'll get menu items to change the settings for that applet in particular and for Flash as a whole.
