    A couple of updates ago, Flash started installing a settings manager in my Control Panel which I like, it's a heckuva lot better than the old online one. But there doesn't seem to be any way to make the settings stick. Whenever I restart my computer, it's reverted back to the defaults. Anyone else experienced this? Any workaround? Please don't tell me it's better to leave it set on the defaults. I'm an adult and know what preferences I want. Thanks. :)

    I think I figured it out. I have Better Privacy for Firefox and it was set to automatically delete the default Flash cookie. Apparently Flash uses that cookie to store your settings. I've restarted a couple of times and all is okay. Another catastrophe averted. :D

    I added this SOL in my exclusion in BetterPrivacy (Protected LSO) and after that it is working fine for months.
    Remember to check the relative path in your PC. Also be sure that other temp file cleaners or doesnt wipe this out.
