While I was browsing through a website I commonly use, an error popped up telling me I had to update or get a flash player to play a song. This was not normal due to the fact I updated Adobe Flash less than a week ago to the latest version from their official website, because of the same problem. I proceeded to the Adobe Flash website and, because I was unable to find any other solution, installed the player again, guessing there was a newer version.
Meanwhile, before installing the "newer" version, I tried the same link on the other browsers I had -- Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Surprisingly, it worked. However, I prefer firefox so I am still trying to solve this problem.
The installer told me to close firefox, so I did. After what seemed like a successful installation, I opened Firefox again and re-tried the link, as well as a few others. The same message popped up, and it was NOT an ad - I am perfectly capable of recognizing a website message from an ad. I then went on another website, and the following message popped up: "Adobe Flash Player is out of date. Please update. Current version: 0.0.0"
Surprised from all of this, I proceeded to check my Flash Player. I did so on multiple websites, and they all gave the same answers - that my flash player is missing. That is quite strange, taking the fact I updated it a week ago, and 15 minutes before checking it. What I have also noticed, is that I am still capable of opening youtube videos and listening to some songs. That is about all I am currently capable of doing.
I don't want to change my browser, since I've used Firefox for a long time and prefer it in front of other browsers. Please help me leave it that way. I've never had this happen to me.
Thanks in advance.
In case needed, the website I was listening songs from was SoundCloud. www.soundcloud.com
