Facebook videos don’t play with IE9 & Flash Player


After installing the latest version of Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer 9, videos on Facebook don't play. Whenever I try reverting to an older version of Flash Player, I am just forced to update to the latest version.

I've read online that Flash Player 11.3 is not compatible with Windows 7 64-bit and IE9. This is my exact setup! How can I get Facebook videos working again?
