An important warning to Tor (would-be) users: if you choose to add the Flash plugin to TorBrowser (or whatever browser you use with Tor), this will most likely BREAK the anonymity. Flash tends to connect using any connection it can get, so it’s able to leak your IP to any site that really wants to get it.
Adobe just released a new version of their Flash Player: version 11 final aka
184.108.40.206 (now updated to 11.7.700.202). The main new feature is that it finally has a 64 bits version! There’s also Stage 3D, which allows 3D GPU rendering, finally graphic intensive Flash games will be fast ^^. I’m not sure of what was subsequently added in versions 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3. I suppose versions 11.3.300.262 and .265 fix the chaos introduced in 11.3.300.257 with all the crashes in plugin-based browsers (at least, with Opera and Fx).
To use that Flash portable, unpack it into the plugin folder for your browser, that is (paths are relative paths, relative to the portable browser’s root directory):
- Firefox Portable: Data/plugins
- Opera USB: program/plugins
- Iron or Chrome Portable: Iron/plugins
Note that Flashplayer.xpt is useless, it’s only included because it’s tiny and some people do look for it.
Here is the zip containing NPSWF32.dll (actually now named NPSWF32_11.7.700.202.dll) and flashplayer.xpt, and NPSWF64_11.7.700.202.dll, and also the
new FlashPlayerPlugin_11.7.700.202.exe executable, which as far as I understood is related to Flash getting executed within a sandbox now (for some reason this executable is only provided with the 32 bits version though). You can choose your preferred download host between Megaupload and Filesonic, however note that the files hosted on FileSonic vanish after 30 days without a download, so usually only the latest versions (latest stable + latest preview if newer than stable) remain online there. Megaupload on the other hand should have all history of my uploads. It’s now on MediaFire and Uploaded.to, which I believe don’t delete old files (at least MediaFire doesn’t), so apart from the oldest versions lost in the Megaupload takedown, the more recent ones should be all there.

megaupload and filesonic directories MediaFire directory with all my Flash Portable uploads (since the day MU was shutdown and I lost most of my previous versions…). Note that the MegaUpload one also contains a few other portable things, while the FileSonic one is regularly purged of files not downloaded within the last 30 days (so usually it contains only a few most recent versions):
(NB: those are here just for historical purpose, MU was taken down by the FBI and FS purges the files so often that the folder is empty…)
NB: in Windows 7, after installation, Flash can be found in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed for the 32 bits version and C:\Windows\System32\Macromed for the 64 bits version.
