Separate Security Issue: Update your Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX 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 ActiveX.

Flash Player Version: Version 27.0.0.183

FredMcD, you could at least take a moment to edit the generic posting for a Linux user as that is more for Windows.

I'm thinking the Flash 13.1 is due to using the libfreshwrapper-flashplayer to use Pepper Flash in Firefox. The NPAPI version for Linux at time was 11.2 esr.

So even if 27.0.0.183 (NPAPI) is used you would need to get rid of the libfreshwrapper-flashplayer so to not have Pepper Flash be detected also.

Yes I know Firefox for Windows and Mac cannot use the Pepper Flash (PPAPI) but you could on Linux with this workaround.
