Flash not loaded in wijfotoservice photo site

When using the "wij fotoservice" site ( to design a photo card or something, after login a flash based program is loaded, which also connects to fpdownload of adobe.
Site now loads forever, the flash program is not loaded. When disabling adobe in https everywhere it works like a charm.
It now also places flash settings files on the hard drive, with which the site now does work when enabling adobe in https everywhere again. But when removing these 2 files (CCleaner) the problem is back again.
I can imagine this is a problem for more sites who work this way?

Temporary disabled Adobe now, but would be nice if it is fixed.

I can't get the photo service to work even with HTTPS Everywhere disabled, which makes it hard for me to figure out what's breaking here (it doesn't help that my Dutch is pretty limited).

One thing to try is to try builds of HTTPS Everywhere from git with different portions of the Adobe ruleset (src/chrome/content/rules/Adobe.xml) disabled. The first thing to try is removing the <securecookie> elements but the problem could be elsewhere, too.

Hmmm, perhaps the reason I can't get this to work is that my Firefox has Flash cookies (LSOs) blocked completely...

The Dutch is also a little bit challenging for me. I can understand enough of it to make progress with the site, but not to be sure whether I'm using a different part than the original reporter was or whether I'm doing it wrong in some way (for example, whether I'm supposed to finish creating an account in order to get access to the broken part).
