Hey,

I have Firefox 35.0.1 installed and last about a week i have noticed my browser being a lot slower than usually. (can not see any notable difference in any other application on my computer). My system is set to fully automatically update applications and system! I heard and read this forum about problems between my current FF version and flash, so decided to check my system regarding to shockwave flash. to be honest, i was surprized. This is what i saw:

ADD-ONS MANAGER: Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.442 Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 Always Activate

Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.235 Shockwave Flash 16.0 r0 Always Activate

Shockwave for Director 12.1.5.155 Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.1.5.155 Ask to Activate


PLUGIN CHECK PAGE These plugins are up to date

Adobe Flash Player Status Up to Date 16.0.0.235 Action Up to Date

Unknown Plugins Adobe Shockwave 12.1.5.155 Research

I am now carefully listening for suggestions such as what to keep, change or remove from my system

Although several sources/users are saying Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.235 is raported out-of-date by firefox and even new out-of-date versions are raported being out, my auto-update system says 235 is up-to-date. How? Why?

My add-ons Manager shows an old Shockwave Flash as well, which is not listed on plugin check page. Might it be involved making 235 listed ok? Why arent 11.2 auto-replaced/removed when 16.0 already exists? should i remove 11.2 or rather keep it over 16.0, which is raported faulty by several users?

Research shows latest adobe shockwave is 12.1.6 over my current 12.1.5. Why isnt that determined by Firefox, showing just questionmark with word research?

PS! are there any explanations for terms: - Adobe Flash - Shockwave Flash - Adobe Shockwave - Which extension does what?

thank you in advance.

edit: added images PS! side-remark: this forum detects my firefox version as 35.0, while 'About Firefox' shows 35.0.1 - seemed imortant to mention
