I get a "Local Storage" popup from Adobe Flash player when running a video. I have two choices to "Allow" or "Deny." Who do you handle these popups?

the other bill

That message means the producer of the video, not Adobe, wants to store information on your disk, and Adobe security policy says they're supposed to tell you what and why. If they don't, I'd be inclined to deny.

Some of that data is also known as "flash cookies". It allows websites ads to track you even when you clear your normal cookies.

I deny it unless the thing doesn't run.
