The Mozilla Plug-in page Doesn't show when Adobe Flash needs updated

The new version of the Mozilla Plug-in update page now only shows when you need to update your version of Firefox. The Adobe Flash plug-in update disappeared. How do I know when it needs updated now? It's a pain to keep checking the adobe.com site. But since I just had a new Firefox update, along with windows, etc. I checked and there is a new Adobe Flash update that now doesn't show on the plug-in page. Even my Avast software updater doesn't show it yet. So how does one go about checking for that update now, unless it's like I said and I have to keep checking the adobe site. I haven't updated the Adobe Flash plug-in yet as so far my videos seem to be working. I'm hesitating until I'm sure it's okay to do so. Thanks for any answers to this. Maybe it's a dumb question. LOL!

hi IslandMtn, as firefox joined other modern browsers and stopped supporting & loading all npapi-plugins except flash there is really no need for that page anymore. if your flash plugin in firefox is out of date/vulnerable, after a couple ofdays firefox will block it and warn you about it, so you don't need to check it pro-actively. if you want to do so nevertheless, it's possible at adobe's own flash page at https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Hey phillipp! Well I remember being on support site before and they told me that the Adobe Flash plug-in would be the only thing showing on the Mozilla plug-in page. Now it's gone and that's why I asked my question. Especially since my Avast software updater shows it's still okay and my vids have been playing fine. There had just been a recent Flash update so I wasn't expecting another so soon. Only reason I checked, just in case, was that I had several Window updates yesterday and Firefox update. So I went to the adobe.com site and it's showing a new version of Flash. That's what had me wondering how I'm now supposed to find out. Unfortunately for me I hate change of any kind and this keeps changing. LOL! But thanks for telling me that now I won't see the Adobe Flash plug-in update at all. Guess I'll just keep checking the site or as you said wait until I get a notice saying I need to go update it. That did happen to me once on my Comcast videos saying they wouldn't play and that my Flash needed updating. That was the first time I ever had that. Apparently my plug-in page was slow in letting us know about it at the time. Thanks so much for your very fast response!
