    Same problem!

    They are already talking about this on the Motorola Forums.

    I read on XDA that if you are rooted you can freeze an app called "Flash Uninstall for 4.04", uninstall flash and then re-install. They said flash functioned after this. Motorola, as part of the ICS Update force uninstalled flash.

    Yes, as part of the update, Adobe Flash gets uninstalled from phone. But you can then go to the Play store and download it again. No need to be rooted or to freeze anything. I'm not rooted, I downloaded it, and it's working fine on the sites I've used.

    I already tried that. South Park Studios doesn't work to watch episodes of South Park anymore. Reports by others indicate that it doesn't work on most websites. It is possible that the sites you are on are already using some form of HTML 5 and that's why they work?

    Nope. They're using Flash.

    Well I tried that xda fix and did a factory reset...still can't see videos at Yahoo sports NBA.

    Might try to see of an older version works.

    YouTube through the stock browser plays videos for me. I guess the sites that function are hit or miss.

    Correction: YouTube apparently doesn't use flash. I uninstalled flash player and YouTube still plays videos through the stock ICS Browser.

    Yeah, it appears that some work and some don't. Considering it's not officially supported, I'm not surprised that it's hit or miss on different sites.

    This is really pissing me off! One of the major selling points of this phone was a fully functional flash player. I feel that this update has robbed us of a complete web experience. My RAZR feels like a damn iPhone now.

    Just FYI I tried the Official South Park website on 5 different browsers and no flash player love. It just sends up crashing the Browser. Same for the Lapdock mode. No more fully functioning Firefox browser through webtop!

    I'm having the same problem - can't get embedded video to actually play. I've tried the stock browser and firefox with no luck. It acts like its going to run - firefox asks me to enable the plugin - then it just stops at a black screen. This is really frustrating
