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.

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 Add-ons Manager insists that Shockwave Flash is version and out of date.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