Flashplayer installed, still get prompted to install it
I often visit a website who's online magazine is displayed with FlashPlayer. Lately with everyone phasing out support for FlashPlayer, I've only been able to view the magazine with a Windows machine running Internet Explorer. I'm now using Linux Mint with Firefox. I installed FlashPlayer buy running -> sudo apt-get install flashplayer-plugin installer. This worked fine and when I check it using FireFox Addons Manager, I can clearly see that ShockWave is installed and set to Always Active. Yet, when I visit the magazine website, in place of the magazine, it provides a link "Get Adobe Flash Player".
Additional System Details
- DivX Web Player version 22.214.171.124
- The IcedTea-Web Plugin executes Java applets.
- The Videos 3.10.1 plugin handles video and audio streams.
- Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0
It looks like you have Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 installed; Firefox won't allow that old version to be enabled, the most recent 2 or 3 minor version updates can usually be manually enabled per presentation.
Flash 26 is the latest version.
