URGENT: Apple® Mac OS X Leopard Compatibility Issue
We are recommending that you do NOT upgrade to Mac OS X Leopard at this time. We have discovered that there is a compatibility issue between Flash Player and the new Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 release.
This issue has been acknowledged by Adobe® in the following blog post but unfortunately does not include a definitive date for a fix. We also know that this is an identified issue between Adobe and Apple that is affecting millions of people on any site which is delivering web upload capabilities through Adobe FlashTM
Player. For example, there is a web post that identifies this as an issue for FlickrTM customers.
This issue is important to you as a liveBooks customer because it means that if you upgrade to Mac OS X Leopard you will NOT be able to upload any files to your website including images, galleries, movies, etc. The only area where upload will continue to function is within the FTP module of the liveBooks editSuite because this feature does not use Flash for upload.
We are currently working with Adobe to identify a fix for this problem and will keep you updated via the editSuite news page as we have updated information.
If you have already upgraded to Mac OS X Leopard you will need to perform your uploads on a system that uses Mac OS X Tiger 10.4 or an earlier version of Mac OS, or use any Windows machine. If you do not have access to another computer, you can setup an external hard drive as a bootable drive running an earlier version of Mac OS X.
Thank you for your understanding on this issue. If you have any questions regarding this issue please submit them via our online support form.
