How To Uninstall Safari Flash Plugin

Adobe Flash Player is the standard for delivering high-impact, rich Web content. Designs, animation, and application user interfaces are deployed immediately across all browsers and platforms, attracting and engaging users with a rich Web experience.

Like last post-shockwave flash plugin crashes in chrome, we talk about there is a headache with the flash plugin in chrome. Now the same to safari, sometimes flash is missing after installation. So infuriating plugin, some of us will uninstall it.

How to Remove Safari Flash Plug-in? 

As we know, Safari is quite willing to disclose which plug-ins are installed, although many people end up looking in the wrong place for this information. The first time I wanted to find out how Safari manages plug-ins, I looked in Safari’s preferences (from the Safari menu, select ‘Preferences’). Nope, they’re not there. The View menu seemed to be the next likely possibility; after all, I wanted to view the installed plug-ins. Nope, they’re not there either. When all else fails, try the Help menu. A search on ‘plug-ins’ revealed their location.

The easiest way to get rid of it is ... to get rid of it!

How to uninstall Safari Flash plugin

1) Close Safari
2) In Finder go to your Mac's Library > Internet Plug-Ins folder
(NOTE: you might also find this in your Home > Library > Internet Plug-Ins folder if it's not in the location above.)
3) Delete (or to be safe MOVE) the file named "Flash Player.plugin"

Or you could disable this plugin, create a sub-folder called "Disabled Plug-Ins" and move any plugin file into that folder.
Safari won't load the plugins it finds in the Library > Internet Plug-Ins > Disabled Plug-Ins folder. Move the file back to its original location when you want it available in Safari.
