When I watching a video this windows pops up...

Adobe flash player setting

Is requesting permission to store information on your computer

and two buttons says allow deny.

Is this safe to allow on some videos I can't watch them. So I don't know if this is something new or its some kind of a virus or a trick.

thanks.

I would simply uninstall/reinstall. There is often a new version

I have uninstall and install the new one for Mozilla Firefox and I still get that popup screen

here is what it looks like and I want to know is it safe to allow website install whatever it needs to install. I guess what I read it like a flash cookie like a browser cookie.

here I got the attach file

I don't know if is safe to have sites storing information on my computer. and I don't know how you have yours set to

but I have set it to
block all sites from storing information on this computer. and now that popup windows don't come up anymore.

I normally leave it set to the default settings, which allows 100KB per site. This is the equivelant of cookies and the storage is used to enhance functionality and performance. You can see (and change) the Adobe Flash Player Global Storage Settings here: http://www.macromedia.com/support/docum ... ger03.html
