Does anyone else have their Flash Plug-in NOT auto-update? I've been watching the last few Flash Updates from Adobe for a while and for me, they do not Auto-Update. I had to manually install version 22.214.171.124. I've manually installed the Adobe Shockwave Flash for years, but only recently waited to see if it would Auto-Update.
I noticed with the two other Plug-ins, they have Update buttons for Default / On / Off. The Flash Plug-in does not have these buttons. Is this why it does not / will not Auto-Update?
Anyway, I received an eMail today about the Latest Flash Update:
