    Wish you could have Flash 9 now?

    Just make them think that you have it. Check out this post by Malac:

    Don't forget to copy/backup the file before editing it.

    Open the file ~/.mozilla/firefox/pluginreg.dat
    change
    Shockwave Flash 7.0 r63:$
    to
    Shockwave Flash 9.0 r63:$
    My boy used to love the playhouse disney website until they changed to Flash 9. I tried this, and the disney site worked just like it always used to, games and all.

    All credit goes to Malac, the ruler.

    Lol, this *won't* transform your flash player to version 9. This trick will only fool those sites falsly requiring flash 9 features, by bumping the version number in the pluginreg.

    So if a site *really* uses features in flash 9 that doesn't work in v7, this trick won't help.

    I know, just it shouldn't stop flash working altogether.
