Once you install the 64 bit beta flash plugin then it will update automatically but it will not install first time on demand.

I just Googled it, and looked around on adobe.com, but can't find it. Do you happen to have a link? TIA.

Thanks! I found "square", but not that page. The link on adobe.com that I found kept looping back on itself.

FLASH WORKS NOW! Thank you!  Cheesy

Actually link I sent was correct, if you scroll down page you will find two 64 bit downloads. One for IE and another for other browsers.

I wasn't saying your link was wrong; that's how I found what I needed.

What I meant was, what I found via my own Google search and my own browsing at adobe.com wasn't what I needed.

You solved my issue, and I appreciate that! :-)

Life is good again.  Smiley

I was not offended. Glad you found it. I used to do IT support so I kinda do and look for things without thinking and tend to assume others do too. Adobe has not main streamed the 64 bit flash support because "official" 64 bit browsers are limited and mostly beta. Once 64 bit browsers go main stream I look for Flash support to as well. On a side note, I would stay away from Adobe reader 10.x as I have found it to be a bit quirky on a 64 bit OS and rolled back to 9.4 until 10.x has more time to mature.

Absolutely! I've had trouble with the regular version of Adobe reader ever since I started using the 64-bit version of Windows 7! I should have uninstalled it and replaced it with http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader, but I haven't yet.

I very much appreciate your advice! Thank you!

I just read the FireFox 4.x has graduated from nightly build release to public beta release.

Houston, we have a problem. Thank God and Microsoft for System Restore.

The latest version of Minefield (FF 64-bit for Win7) breaks the "reply" pages on qrz.com. I had to do a system restore to fix it.

After the system restore, it was OK, then I applied the Minefield update. Same problem. Had to do a System Restore again.

I turned off automatic updates in Minefield, but that's not a good long-term solution, since I can't get auto security updates.

Anyone have a solution?

FYI, similar post at http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.php?287236-Problem-with-latest-Firefox-64-bit-beta-and-qrz.com

If you turn off automatic updates for minefield you can still do them manually. I have always done mine manually. Go to help menu, select about and click on update button.

Now I'm not so sure that the qrz.com bug was Minefield (Firefox). They were working on the site and I saw some other bugs.

Regardless, when NoScript became disabled (which may have been because I didn't update Minefield), I uninstalled it and went back to FF 3.6.14. If I would have been in a different mood, I might not have done that, but I was tired of these issues getting in the way.

Sure do miss some of Minefield's features, though. :-)

I have seen little glitches in Minefield at times but they usually disappear for nightly builds. You did now that you did not need to uninstall it because minefield and regular release of FireFox co-exist nicely and share bookmarks, history and such.

For you 64 bit users out there, take a look at FireFox's 64 bit beta (4.0 beta9) I have been running it for a while and it is much faster than 32 bit version on a 64 bit machine. It goes under the name "Minefield" which they name their beta pre-release browsers. I always run multiple windows and multiple tab in each window and 32 bit Firefox would leak memory and get in a background loop and get slow and require browser relaunches. 64bit version does not do this. For what it is worth:)

Wow, minefield is really fast.
And all my printer problems are gone.

Thanks,

Howard

It has been my "experience" that FireFox/Minefield has always been much better about printing from the web than IE.
