Vunerable Adobe Flash Player
Firefox blocks adobe flash player as vulnerable, saying that it is outdated. I have version 18.104.22.1681 on Debian 8 Jessie. However, when I get to the plugin check page (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/), it then says that my plugin is in fact up to date. The latest version available on the adobe website is 22.214.171.1241, but my version is only a week old.
It seems a bit cumbersome to have to manually update flash player every week, especially as the player should be up to date. It is also very irritating to have the content blocked on websites.

The .481 version is affected by a critical vulnerability as to why it is blocked along with the previous versions on Windows and Mac OSX.
Just about every Flash player version was added to blocklist since December due to serious security concerns. Yet Mozilla did not add any version before December since Feb 2013 as they were not of security concerns enough to block.
Are there any alternatives?
If you search for linux flash alternatives you can find some discussion. I haven't tried any of them myself.
