Adobe Acrobat X Pro 10.1.6 is the latest version availabe from Adobe while https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ says it is outdated?

Adobe Acrobat X Pro version 10.1.6 is the latest available version update/patch from Adobe for the Adobe Acrobat X Pro applications that come with Creative Suite 6. The Mozilla plugin check page ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/) is displaying this latest version as outdated.

The browser plugin supplied with Adobe Reader is up to version 11.0.2.0, so that's probably why you get that message. I'm not sure how many different "current" version numbers the plugincheck page recognizes.

jscher2000,

 I have the same problem.

When I go to the adobe site to download the latest, it says the latest reader is 10.1.4 And I have 10.1.6.

When I run FF check to see if plugins are up to date, it says my reader is outdated ???

This is the site that FF sends me to: http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Are you saying that this site is obsolete?

It seems that Adobe offers different versions depending on your OS.

  • For Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP SP3, and Windows Server 2008, it offers version 11.0.02
  • For Windows Vista it offers version 10.1.4

(To explore what is available for different OSes, see: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/)

Adobe doesn't support Reader XI on Vista for some reason: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/tech-specs.html

That said, why not put a full 10.1.6 installer there?? I guess users of 10.1.4 have to pick up the update in parts from the update pages:

Back in February I got an Adobe desktop notification to update Adobe Reader. I have Windows Vista and it updated to Adobe 10.1.6.

Not saying you are wrong because the Adobe website goes to update for Windows Vista and chooses option for 10.1.4. Something didn't work right somewhere.

No problems with the update so far that I've noticed so I'm not sure what I need to do if anything.

I have the same problem with Firefox telling me I need to update the Adobe plug-in and sends me to the 10.1.4 update when my Firefox add-ons show I have 10.1.6

jscher2000,

  Thanks for the pointers.

Adobe appears to have abandoned vista  :-( Which causes me to wonder if the latest vista reader (10.1.6) has less security than the latest reader (11.0.2). Do you have any comment on that?

 If the vista reader is less secure, then maybe we should be

using foxit reader instead of adobe reader?

No comment from me on security. That's for bigger brains than mine. Smiley Happy I'm just a Firefox user trying to be diligent about keeping things updated and trusting the providers.....somewhat.

Hi gordon56y and LexieMac, I'm just speculating here, but I think the plugincheck site might not be capable of making fine distinctions such as 3 up-to-date version numbers depending on which reader series you're in. I tried to find the source code for the plugincheck site but didn't have any luck.

Adobe tells that Vista can run Reader 11. No problems. it is absent in the system requirements only for rating /business purposes. but pluginckecj must tell that 10.1.6 (and 9.5.4) are UP To DATE, becuase they are up to date, please check the link Smiley Wink
