You have to disable it by going to
I don't have Flash installed anywhere on my Mac, and this is what shows via that link (notice I have it disabled)
Other browsers may be similar. You can also turn Flash off in the ACP, but it may still be used by the drag/drop function in the editor?
I have non-stop issues on my Mac with Flash on the XenForo web sites I frequent (mine included) using Chrome. The flash uploader REALLY needs to go into the dump and HTML5 replace it. Eventually I end up with a reboot of the Mac occurring (not of my doing) due to memory issues - so I have a feeling that Chrome/Flash has a memory leak as my browser is open anytime the computer is on and there are a minimum of 4 XF sites open in tabs.
