Flash player 11.9.900.170 for portable browsers (32 and 64 bits)

Flash 11 is outdated, you should rather get Flash 12 there (well, except for Linux where the latest version is 11.2.x and still maintained at the moment)

Since it seems version 11.9.900.170 is still somehow in high demand, I just added a new mirror here.

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 (now updated to 11.9.900.170). 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). This paragraph is now quite oudated… can’t wait for version 12 so that I can finally start a brand new Flash post from scratch…

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 + set plugins.load_appdir_plugins to true in about:config
  • 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_11.9.900.170.dll) and flashplayer.xpt, and NPSWF64_11.9.900.170.dll, and also the new FlashPlayerPlugin_11.9.900.170.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, 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.

For developers, here is also the debug version 11.7.700.202.

Older versions

If you’re interested in even older versions, here are (NB: due to Megaupload’s closure, almost all of them are offline now :():

Bonus: 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.

    Strange, firefox still freezes on version 11.4.x

  2. patheticcockroach says

    Hm, strange indeed, I haven’t had issues since a few versions back now.

  3. Anonymous says

    I think its just the new sandbox update. So flash versions up to 11.2 will still work on portable versions.

  4. Anon says

    The newest version Flash 11.4.402.278.
    is running under my Firefox Portable Nightly [18.0a1 (2012-09-25)]

    Thank you, Admin.
    But aren’t there Versions for 32- and 64bit?

  5. patheticcockroach says

    I put them both in the same archive for the sake of simplicity. I haven’t found the sandbox executable wrapper (or whatever this thing is) for the 64 bits version yet; looks like there is none, although that difference between the 32 and 64 bits version seems a bit puzzling to me…

  6. patheticcockroach says

    Updated to 11.4.402.287…

  7. Anonymous says

    and 11.5 beta ? because 11.4 have problems under FF 1.9 (x64)

  8. patheticcockroach says

    Note to self:
    I’ll try to post it soon

  9. patheticcockroach says

    There you go 🙂
    I don’t know if they fixed many bugs or added many features, but they inflated the binaries like crazy… 15MiB now vs 10MiB before 😮 (compressed)

  10. HansWurst says

    aaaand they did it again => 11.5.502.110

  11. patheticcockroach says

    And this time I even saw it before you posted about it 😉 Unfortunately I won’t be able to update it until at least tomorrow evening…

  12. Anonymous says

    Thanks for keeping the current Flash files uploaded!

  13. Anonymous says

    Do you have a download from another site? Those ones are all blocked for me 🙁

  14. Ars Lykaion says

    Just a heads up that Flash 11.5.502.146 is released, but no pressure. 🙂

  15. patheticcockroach says

    Thanks, updated 🙂

    • Melroy says

      Thanks 😉 Well little pressure, because on some websites they force you to use the latest Flash version.

  16. dave says

    thank you so much! I was nearly getting crazy because my portable firefox not working on so many pages!

  17. patheticcockroach says

    Hi all,
    Looks like this time I’m ahead of the usual whistle blowers 😉 I’m aware version 11.5.502.149 got released some hours ago and will upload it “soon” (at worst in less than 24h, more probably within 6)

  18. patheticcockroach says

    I’m aware that yet another update has been released. I’ll post it if I don’t forget in a few hours, or otherwise at the end of the day.

  19. patheticcockroach says

    Shame on me, I forgot: I did install version 11.6.602.171, but I forgot to pack it and upload it…. :/ Will do it this evening then…

  20. B says

    Thanks a ton for uploading the flash dll files. Helped me a lot. Thank you and I wish you happiness in your life

  21. Emyl says

    You’re great 😀

  22. Rusty says

    Wow that’s exactly I was looking for! Thanks a lot!

  23. Anonymous says

    very good,thx

  24. Yahooputa says

    Thank you, sir.

  25. Deep says

    Thank you so much, this helped out a lot!
    I in first place didn’t copy the .exe to the plugin folder, because I tend to be overcautious. Since it didn’t work, I threw caution over board and… it works as it should.

  26. albert says

    Thank you very much, very much, very much, very much and VERY MUTCH !

  27. Ben Lifehacker says

    Thank you so much! Adobe hid the files in the original locations which people take them from, and left a flash.ocx and flash util file instead of these DLLs. How did you rip them? That way we can all stay up to date instead of bugging you for the latest! Thanks again!

    • patheticcockroach says

      See the last paragraph of the post 😉 They are in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed and C:\Windows\System32\Macromed

    Adobe Flash Player 11.7.700.202 Final/11.8.800.50 Beta

  29. Anonymous says

    Thanks for new version

  30. thiner says

    Hi David, could you please provide debugger version? Flash Player debugger is very important for Flash developers.
    Thanks a lot.

  31. ZehHa says

    Would like to get 11.7.700.224 portable. Any plans for that? Thanks a lot for your efforts!

    BTW: Where can I find the corresponding .exe in a fully installed system?

    • patheticcockroach says

      Thanks for the notification, I’ll upload it maybe this evening or tomorrow morning. As mentioned at the very end of the post, the files (dll and exe) are located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed and in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed

    • patheticcockroach says

      Oops, I almost forgot. Here it is:

    Hi, (using Win7) , b4 FF 21, been enjoying your ‘releases’, all working, and installed in C:\Users\student\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\plugins (the only folder FF could install). But since FF21, which was updated and intalled there also. Whatever files I put on that plugins folder, no flash works(youtube etc). In C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash, there are some old(2010), dll, ocx, and exe, but cannot be deleted due to user rights etc, any help would be greatly appreciated !

  33. bilko says

    standard FF21 installed, not portable version. Wow, thanks, just the trick in “about:config” , worked.
    There is some new problem now however, that msg on youtube(for example): “an error has occurred please try again later” , but I think it has to do with new flash version not compatible with FF yet, or something. I tried clearing cache etc, disabling
    Adblocks etc, nothing worked. Anyway thanks.

  40. John says

    11.9.900.117 stable is out

  41. ZehHa says

    Hi David! Thank you very much again.

    Portable browser installations seem to be a bit peculiar. Some need the flashplayerplugin.exe, some don’t – as reported by users. My portable SeaMonkey from definitely depends on the .exe file. And this one cannot be found elsewere, but here.

  42. Anonymous says

    Thank you for this!!

    At work we have locked computers who do not permit the installation of anything so after a while flash becomes obsolete. This is the only way i can update it. I have been using your page for a while now, i just want you to know how much i appreciate it!
    Keep up the good work!

  48. PCRisgreat says

    Thank you SO much …. !!!!

    After spending nearly two hours looking for this damned “FlashPlayerPlugin_11.9.900.170.exe” to use with FirefoxPortable without having to install Adobe’s dirty crap on my clean OS install, I finally found your excellent article and uploads.

    Once again, thank you very much.

    • patheticcockroach says

      Sorry you had to search for so long. Google buried me some months ago for some unknown reason (maybe they punish me for not placing any of their trackers here) and now this place is a bit harder to find… Long live the web police and King Big Brother Eric Schmidt and his pals.
      Anyway, glad you found the place. Bookmark it for next update 😉

  49. Luigi says

    Could you add a direct download link?

    • patheticcockroach says

      The “backup mirror” is in fact a direct download link:

      • Luigi says

        Thanks a lot!

      • Luigi says

        The domain is filtered by firewall. Could you use

      • patheticcockroach says

        Wow. They took the time to filter just a sub-domain of mines? Some IT moron must have some time to waste… Also the site must look weird to you, without the pictures… 🙁
        I don’t have a account, does this work: ?

        Otherwise I also put it there, but the link expires after about a month:

      • Luigi says

        Sites are often filtered by default. I could ask for remove it but I have to justify the request only for work. However demo2 link worked. 🙂
        Thanks again.

      • patheticcockroach says

        Hm, how can you access this site then ? They did unblock ? That’s unusual 😀

        On a side note, there is an HTTPS version available, maybe that can help (?)

      • Luigi says

        I don’t know why is not filtered and patheticcockroach is filtered. My hypotesis is that firewall has a dictionary of suspected words: pathetic-cock-roach … probably one of this words triggers something in the firewall.

      • patheticcockroach says

        I mean, I’m surprised this very site ( is not blocked while is: it seems to be subdomain-specific.

      • Luigi says

        You’re right. But this happens also with many (not all) other sites. The domain is not filtered but, when I try to download from a sub-domain, it filters.
