    Ever since the move to XenForo we've been getting hundreds of reports reporting that Flash Player is only crashing on XenForo.

    Is there a way we can disble Flash? This was reported several times in Bug Reports but it is keep being marked as not a bug, but, it's only happening on our site. :(. It's also happening on other XenForo forums I visit as well and our members are.

    XenForo only uses Flash Player for one thing, and that's the upload button.

    Are you sure it's flash you're talking about?

    XenForo actually has 2 uploaders.

    To use the non-flash version

    AdminCP > Options > Attachments > Un-check, Use Flash Uploader

    Adobe Flash crashes all the time. It sucks. Many sites and programs crash my Adobe Flash (regardless of OS or browser). I have 20+ PCs and Flash is a common culprit in crashes. Hurry up HTML5 !

    I episodically lose the [Upload a file] button on Xenforo.com from Flash crashing.
    It certainly doesn't crash often, and it used to crash alot more.

    That being said, I *LOVE* Xenforo's Flash uploader implementation. Puts every other forum to shame.
