Firefox says it has blocked Adobe flash

YouTube videos normally run fine, I managed to run one video, but two minutes after that all video's stopped working, and an error message appeared: "This plugin is vunerable and should be updated. Activate Adobe flash." I thought that it could just be a problem with YouTube, but a message kept appearing at the top of the screen of various different websites using Adobe flash, saying that "Firefox has blocked Adobe Flash because it is unstable.", with a choice to allow or to continue blocking. I looked at plugins and it didn't mention any news for Adobe Flash, does anyone know if this is a glitch, and how do I fix it?

Thanks.

hello mikasapinata, adobe has released a critical patch for a vulnerability in its flash plugin, which is reportedly already exploited in the wild. therefore firefox will block insecure versions from running by default on websites for your protection. https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb14-27.html https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/blocked/p794

please update to Adobe Flash Player version 16.0.0.235 as soon as possible, which you can download from http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html (use the windows-exe for plugin-based browsers).

Thank you, I had a breif battle with windows, which said there was an error in downloading it, but it seems to have worked.
