Until recently the NIST time widget always worked and I used it as my home page. My Adobe Flash and Win 10 are both up to date. The widget works OK with Chrome and Edge. Go to http://time.gov/widget/. With Firefox the picture at the upper left will sync and shoe the time with Chrome and Edge. With my Firefox it will not sync.

Chosen solution

I do not have FlashPlayer installed so can not check the FlashPlayer widget works, however I do note that the NIST page provides a link to a html5 widget

Does that work ok for you ?

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.

Flash: Grab the uninstaller from here:

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-mac-os.html Uninstall Flash Player | Mac

Then reinstall the latest version.

Note: Windows users should download the active_x 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 active_x.

Flash Player Version: 25.0.0.171
