Why does the Adobe Flash Player pop up keep on appearing when using the browser. It never used to before the upgrade to the latest version.

Since updating to the latest version of Firefox the Adobe Flash player pop up continually pops up whether the page needs flash player or not. It even shows for a text page.

It is very annoying

What does the pop-up say? Are you sure it's Adobe?

Update your Flash Player v15.0.0.223 Shockwave Director v12.1.4.154

more options

The pop up asks (for example) "Allow to run Adobe Flash" with a prompt "Allow" or "Continue Blocking".

This happens to every web page where I haven't selected "Allow".

You can set the default in "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Plugins" and change that for the Shockwave Flash plugin to "Always Activate".

You can inspect and manage permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab via these steps:

  • Click the "Site Identity Button" (globe/padlock) on the location/address bar
  • Click "More Information" to open "Tools > Page Info" with the Security tab selected
  • Go to the Permissions tab (Tools > Page Info > Permissions) to check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab
