I have sites that have stopped working because of the change in Flash player. It also created a problem with Flash making software that was purchased and had been working for years.

I am having issues with dozens of websites that I do general monitoring on. Owners are complaining to me that they are losing business because their flash is broken. I have lost clients because I can not fix them all in one day.. or week... more because they don't like the stop gap measures that could be put in until a solid answer is given. This is getting ridiculous. Adobe needs to fix this its their update that's messing the pages up.

I have several websites that I have designed for clients that are now broken (in more than just Chrome... IE and Safari too). It's not my fault and it is not my clients' faults. However, I will be spending the next few days redesigning these sites with something other than Flash. If you fix it after that... well, I for one won't bother using it.

This bug ruins the look of my site, thus killing its commercial value.

My website homepage is no longer working. The swf file stopped working once Flash was upgraded to 11.0

The update to FLASH 11 has created problems on two of my websites. The embedded flash objects no longer work on the main screen using IE 8. Why is FLASH 11 not backwards combatible? This is really inconvenient. If you are unwilling to correct this I will have to updated my sites, may as well go to Silverlight if I do.

This causing major problems by requiring reconsideration and design modifications to several sites. Please do the decent thing and fix this.

This is causing problems for many web developers. Many sites now just showing white boxes.
4:49:43 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 16, 2011
Please fix this! I have dozens of websites down right now and angry clients!

This bug creates un-usable simple banners with an animated text and should never have occurred, please let us know a work around or release a patch to fix this, many vendors will drop flash support once they realize that you just killed off clients websites with flash 11 offering no reverse compatibility..

.swf has stopped across all platforms once I upgraded to Flash 11...please fix as it is creating massive problems for all website developers...

SWF no longer works on my customer web sites if they upgraded to the latest version of Adobe. This is true for both IE9 and Chrome. This is a critical issue as a blank white space now appears on my customer sites using SWF. Please, please get this corrected.
Ok, people, can we get this bug fixed asap????

As a website designer I have several clients that I now have to find a way to "fix" their websites, because of this "upgrade".

We are a software developer and this is causing problems with all of our customers. Please fix it for us!! :)
