Enable Flash on Chrome if Product Images Don’t Appear in Magento

Recently, Chrome began shipping with Flash disabled by default.  Normally this is fine, as Flash is on it’s way out, but not for those who administer Magento 1.9.x sites.  If you use the latest Chrome and log into the backend of your Magento site to edit product images, you might see something like this:

You can then close the tab and go back into your Magento 1.9.x backend.  Now when you click on product images, they will appear.
