You can give Boat browser a try. It is quite fast in comparison to the stock browser with flash

But it still won't run websites that require Flash Player.

Since the Chrome update our local(south African) weather and news tickers are running. Previously they just had the beige jigsaw puzzle token
Also found that a couple of websites ran now. One that the I can remember off-hand
is the Old Spice Music Muscle

This version is Flash Player 11.1 for Android 4.0 (11.1.115.17)

most sites which are linking a manual download are offering .12.

.17 fixed my issues on my tab..
thanks this worked for us

"...Go back in to 'settings - storage - downloads'. In here you should now see the flash you have just downloaded. You need to activate it. click on it and it does it automatically...."

What does this mean I click on Settings > storage > downloads > install_flash_ics_1.apk and get a "Done" top left.

But still does not work in Firefox.

I see I have Jelly Bean does this mean Flash will not work on my Tab 2?

Try downloading Puffin Free or Photon Browser. I have tried both and Flash required items do work. The Photon Browser will require a paid version after a free trial period. Please reply here if you find this usefull.

Thank you for the info but if I am to change from the stock browser it would only be to Firefox as I use that on all other devices.

Have not heard of a single instance where flash player was installed and worked on galaxy tab 2 10.1 using either dolphin or boat browsers. All solutions tried appear to be useless..

Perhaps you should try it. Then you can report the positive results. It does work with Boat browser on the GT-P5100

PS just tried it (flash) with the stock browser. Also working fine with that

People.

You have been a fantastic source of detailed information. However, having tried all the suggestions, I cannot get my Tab 2 to install flash successfully. I have tried all the archived versions but although they start to download, within seconds the downloads show as unsuccessful

Make sure that you have "unchecked" the download from "unknown sources" box in the security settings of the tab. The Adobe site may be blocked by that setting
