You have the latest update to the old Flash Player 11.2 ESR branch yes. Some websites, news ones especially, have dropped support for the older 11.2 branch used on Linux and especially the older EOL 11.1 branch used on Android and BlackBerry PlayBook.

Adobe has recently done a u-turn on Linux support again with their NPAPI Flash Player Plugin for Linux.

They have been updating it as it was on Sept 6, on Sept 15 update, on Sept 21 update and now they have a Sept 23 update.

A easy way to use this is to place the file in a created plugins folder at ~/.mozilla/plugins/

The Sept 23 update is version
