Separate Issue; Your System Details shows;
Shockwave Flash 21.0 d0
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r45
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.
Flash Player Version: 23.0.0. 207 Flash Player (Linux) Version 11.2. 202.644
