The new update of flash player still won't get recognized properly in Linux Firefox due to the commas in the version string

Posted

Hi, figured I'd let you know that the problem described here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1035859#answer-666122

persists with the new update to the flash player.

Once again, it is necessary to change its version string in pluginreg.dat from "11,2,202,440" to "11.2.202.440". Otherwise, the firefox will keep claiming that the version is out of date...
