Adobe Flash
« on: July 14, 2015, 17:55:07 »

Just got a warning from my browser (Mozilla Firefox) that it had blocked Adobe Flash.
 This is likely to last until there is a satisfactory fix.

I just installed the version 18.0.0.209 , that was released today, as a result of the problems.

Keep in mind you cannot play existing Flash video's without Flash. They keep the codes secret.. ;)

As I understand it FFx has blocked Flash by default so if you choose to you can still have FFx with Flash, or you could, you know, switch to a decent browser.
