I updated flash to the latest version, but firefox continually asks me to update it on the plugin page, why is this occurring?
I updated Firefox and Flash earlier this evening. Firefox told me I still needed to update Flash so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. It still gave me a request to update it and a lnk to the same site I had just used to update flash. Please help me understand why this is happening. No solicitations and please do not send me to a malware ridden site.

Hmm, I see that, and as far as I can tell, it's a mistake. The plugin checker wants you to have 22.214.171.124 (see linked screenshot), but that update is, as far as I can tell, only for Mac at this point. For Windows, 126.96.36.199 still is the latest. Hopefully they'll fix it before we get a dozen more questions!
This should be fixed now.
No matter what I do I get the update message by a number of plugins. I update, but the messages continue - known vulnerabilites. Adobe Flash is the worst - I get the warning on every page of Firefox!
This is a known issue with the update checker. If the programs web site says you are up to date, then you are fine. Don’t worry.
Hi QuestionTime, possibly you have multiple versions -- current plus at least one older version.
Type or paste about:plugins in the address bar and press Enter to load an internal page listing details about your plugins. If you use Find (Ctrl+f) for npswf -- a unique part of the Flash plugin file name -- you can determine whether Firefox discovered more than one.
This is a known issue with the update checker.
This may only be a issue initially with the plugincheck site after a new Flash Player version release. The poster is likely having the classic case of having the current Release and a previous release on system and the previous is being detected and not the current.

If that is the problem;
Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.
Then reinstall the latest version.
Note: Windows users should download the active_x for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).
Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the active_x.
