Shockwave Player shown as vulnerable but updated 3X & Flash Player up to date.

Plugin Status loaded in Firefox. It showed both Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave Player as vulnerable. Updating Adobe Flasy Player to Shockwave Flash seemed to work and show it uptodate but Adobe Shockwave Player remained vulnerable. I keep going to the link to update Adobe Shockwave Player, but after I do I still get the vulnerable designation (after refreshing). I have tried to uninstall and reinstall. I have restarted Firefox, although it doesn't say I need to. I'm wondering if this is a problem that Adobe changed the name. Or that the two are synonymous now. Martha Teeter

I meant Well in looking for support, I refreshed Firefox. And now the problem seems to have disappeared. No vulnerable Adobe Shockwave Flash.
