    No Flash on the browser?

    Hey guys, earlier today I went on my ps3 to use the interwebs and was trying to watch a video and nothing would pop up. I tried several other sites and the same thing occurred. I powered off the system and restarted it and there's still no fix. Anyone know what's going on?

    I don't think any browser like that supports Adobe. Not iPhone, Android, PS3, Xbox, or Wii. I don't think the Wii U does either.

    PS3 definitely supports Flash in their browser. Each page will ask you to "Run the Plug-in", which is usually the Flash applet...just allow the plug-in to play and you should be fine.

    This.

    Although for some reason some websites will still not work.

    Does this happen on all sites? Just a few specific sites? Can you give an example? Which OFW are you currently using? (4.30 or 4.31)?

    I am up to date on the firmware and it happens on every site. It won't even load a video that's on the PS3 page when you open the internet. The day before it wouldn't even load that page at all

    I'm using OFW 4.30 and I still get the plug-in prompt. If you're using the optional OFW 4.31, it could be an issue that has yet to be addressed.

    For an experiment, try this page Watch Hunter x Hunter (2011) Episode 54 Online | English Dubbed-Subbed Episodes - It works for me on 4.30.

    I just checked your link and it said i was missing the needed plug in or something to that extent so it didn't run it. At least this time it mentioned something about actually missing something. So, I was mistaken, i thought i had updated, but i have not. I went to go check for updates and it said it found 4.31, which i'm assuming means i have not updated to it

    P.S. If i'm not mistaken, it worked even before i last updated it as well as after (idr when that may have been, but i believe it worked)

    When on the browser, press and go to TOOLS > JAVASCRIPT and make sure it's turned ON.

    I'll see if I can dig up some more info on the situation, but for now I really don't have any other suggestions.

    EDIT: Ok, it seems OFW 4.30 added a new feature for Plug-in prompts, where you can choose for it to "NOT ASK AGAIN". Basically, if you tell it to not prompt for plug-ins, it will never be able to run a flash or java applet that needs confirmation to run.

    This change is most likely remembered in the system's cookies, so clearing them from your browser (TOOLS > COOKIES) should fix the issue...if not, try clearing the cache and history as well.

    If all else fails, you can create a new user account on your PS3 and on the XMB go to SETTINGS > SYSTEM SETTINGS > RESTORE DEFAULT SETTINGS.
