I keep getting "Flash outdated" messages. Firefox Plugin Check says it's up to date with version 11.2.202.418 but current version is *.425. Can't install.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.

Ever since the last few days (say, a week) i've been getting messages saying that Flash is outdated, and firefox blocks the plugin, so I have to unblock ("allow") every time I get to a new page. It's no big deal, but it's annoying and, for example, I can't watch movies on my fave movie page... In firefox's Plugin Check page I get an "Up to date" message, but it shows version 11.2.202.418, wich is also the version on Ubuntu's Software Center , and current versione is 11.2.202.425. I've tried this instrucitons https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keep-flash-up-to-date-and-troubleshoot-problems#w_updating-flash to install manually, but can't get to the place where firefox is installed.

I already moved from chrome to firefox because of chrome's repeated malfuntioning, I have nowhere else to go! (pity me).

Thank you all! And sorry for possible spelling/syntactical mistakes, english is not my first language.

I would think Unbuntu would have a update by now as 11.2.202.425 has been out from Adobe since December 9 as 11.2.202.424 and older is vulnerable.

Look for the .mozilla folder in home/ and create a folder named plugins then you can place the libflashplayer.so file there.

Now any install of Firefox and SeaMonkey will be able to use it.

Flash 11.2.202.425 tarball is at https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
