So i've been having a weird problem lately, and I have no idea what's going on. First, Flash is not really working in firefox anymore for me. I've tried installing and reinstalling it dozens of times. Youtube still works occasionally, but it's flaky. Things like menu popouts don't work anymore (like on ESPN).
I keep getting the message from firefox to install the flash plugin. but it doesn't work, i get the following screen:
I really don't get it at all. I remember a couple of other websites don't work anymore either, with the same message. But the same websites work fine in my virtual machine on the SAME computer. So something about my desktop system is screwed up. I checked my hosts file to see if anything was hijacked, but everything is fine there. I went into my device manager and checked out the network adapters, and they were fine (except for the fact that I had 20 devices in the network adapters ??).
So I've reached the end of my knowledge base. i need help. It's annoying enough where I may consider reinstalling windows. but i hope not.
