Flash plugin is disabled in Firefox due to vulnerability but no update is available. What can I do?
I am using Firefox in Linux and when I click check for updates it says the Flash plugin is up to date.

The plug-in is no up to date, so Firefox disabled it to protect you. You need to download the latest version of Shockwave Flash from here.

Flash 188.8.131.525 is the current for Linux as 184.108.40.2064 and earlier will give the message. The older Flash is not disabled completely but Click to play.
Check the Flash version at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ as it is up to date as the Plugin check page is manually updated.
Flash Player Plugin on Linux 220.127.116.114 and lower (click-to-play) has been blocked for your protection. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/blocked/p796
Current versions of the Flash player plugin are at https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html

I'm using Firefox 34.0 on a desktop running Fedora 19, although I'm going to migrate to Fedora 20 very soon. Add-ons Manager insists that Shockwave Flash is version 18.104.22.1684 and out of date. However, if I try to download and install version 22.214.171.1245, my system tells me that I already have that version installed. I closed Firefox, removed flash completely, installed the latest version and restarted Firefox. No change. How can I get Firefox to accept that it actually has the latest version?
