Flash player allow access box? What is it?

When I try to watch something playing eg you tube or TV on demand an annoying box has started to appear recently asking to allow extra data.It has allow or deny but clicking on deny often doesnt get rid of it.
Does anyone know what this is and why it has recently appeared! Is it safe!
I have xp and also use Firefox.

I would uninstall Flash (get uninstaller from adobe.com). Then scan for malware. Then reinstall Flash.
