Just reflashed (updated) last night ... running 4.2008.30-2.
I was browsing Facebook and discovered I now have an out dated version of flash
- 0.0.31 vs 0.0.47 which was required for some photo viewing. As this is not
something we can adjust ourselves, I'm filing this bug in the hopes you'll be
able to update the ROM soon to support newer Flash versions.
The template is there for a reason. You're really going to have to be a lot
more specific when filing bugs.
What's the URL (if it's private, is there any way you can provide access to a
public address)? What's the exact error message you receive? Are you sure Flash

Sorry I meant to actually post this link to the screenshot I took -
Yes Flash is enabled.
um, we want the url, you need to select the url from the browser's address
it's the thing that says "http://www.new.fac" at the bottom, copy the entire
thing and paste it into the URL field of this bug.
Resolving as INVALID; changing to an enhancement request and rewording the
As I understand it (again, the fact you've not followed the bug template makes
this hard to be sure), Facebook now requires a later version of Flash from what
is shipped by Nokia. This is not related to an OS upgrade.
The version of Flash provided is the version of Flash provided: 9.0 r31 (can be
seen by going to `about:plugins' in the browser). Upgrades to this will come
when they come, and experience shows that bugs here are not the best way of
getting Nokia to update the third-party licenced software.
The way to fix your problem is to get Facebook to change their required version
of Flash and/or their auto-detection script.
OK, we checked the sources and the flash player we ship is actually r48, not
r31. The person who was doing flash maintenance was new and probably didn't
realize how many places (3) in a certain file needed to be changed. There's an
official test page:
which you can use to verify that we ship 48.
what follows is an interim (very non-certified) package which should "resolve"
Note that this package doesn't rely on any internal knowledge of flash. I wrote
it outside based on what I saw in about:plugins and using grep on a device.
This has been fixed internally (w33) and the fix will be made available in an
update (Sorry, I also don't know about release dates).
Java Script 9,0,48,0
Action Script: 9,0,48,0
Plugin registered: Shockwave Flash 9.0 r48
Facebook.com works fine."
I can't actually send the URL (and sorry for the delay). The problem is with
the Share on Ovi application. When you click it, there's a dynamic drop down
action that occurs which does not change the URL. I just tested it on my Mac
vs the Tablet and that's what's happening.
Once again clarifying for my own list here:
Fixed in package
which is part of the internal build version
Any public update released with or after this build version will include the
fix. If you have some time, please verify the fix after the public update has
been released by marking this bug report as VERIFIED.
(Split Plug-Ins into "Flash" and "Others", hence correcting QA Contact.
Sorry for the noise.)
