There is an outdated page on the Adobe Flash web site being blocked by Firefox 35.0.1 on Windows 7. Version 16..0.0.235 of Flash is labeled a security risk, "Always activate" is greyed out. I was on the Plugins page, and there I clicked the update now linktext. I was advised that all older versions of Flash in the version 11 range are blocked. Nowhere to go from there. (My screenshot has a piece off the Plugins page above the resulting page when I clicked on the indicated link.)
The outdated page being blocked was allowed and I was able to run through the download procedure, but in the end I had an error.
I repeatedly tried downloading install_flashplayer16x32_mssd_aaa_aih.exe, which downloads OK, and when I run it it downloads and installs Adobe Flash, then says Finish and "There was an error."
Glary Utilities software updater updated Internet Explorer's Flash, said nothing of Firefox, now I know why. This is a mess.
I opened up firefox -p and went to the new blank profile I had created sometime back. It was happily running a fully-enabled version 11 of Flash (I bet that wouldn't last long as my browser bites me in the butt and disables it).
Firefox -p and I created a new profile today. It has this crippled version 188.8.131.52 of Flash.
It appears that Mozilla has an outdated page telling me that all old versions in the range of version 11 are blocked. No word there about the more recent versions.
From what else I've read, others are turning to other browsers and coming up with a bad Flash, too. I only have Firefox (well, Internet Exploder, which I discounted as a piece of rubbish ever since they came out with IE 7).
Any advice? Thank you.
