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 11.2.202.425 is the current for Linux as 11.2.202.424 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.

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 Add-ons Manager insists that Shockwave Flash is version 11.2.202.424 and out of date. However, if I try to download and install version 11.2.202.425, 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?
