As in the subject line, many pages on the internet (mostly games and videos and stuff like that) which worked fine last week, now do not work properly. There is a message "plugin missing" or "plugin not found". Anyone else have that problem recently? I suspect all I can do is just wait for Macintosh to send a software update to correct the problem. Is there anything else I can do? Come to think of it, there was a software update very recently. Is it possible that that update changed something?
My mac is OS 10.6.8 and running Safari 5.1.7, by the way.

If the plugin is the browser JRE, it's been automatically disabled to help counter the Flashback malware. Simply go into your browser an re-enable it.

Thank you. Actually I think I found out the problem. I think all those sites I was trying to access had updated their Adobe flash software, and I hadn't. So I just updated the Adobe flash player. I'm pretty sure it will work okay now, but I haven't tried the sites yet.
