NEWBIE : Adobe Flash update? It says I'm UP TO DATE!!! But it keeps crashing on me...


Hi guys. For a few months now I've been having ads and video crash on me occasionally and it tells me I need to update. But when I check with Mozilla it says I'm up to date. And just today it's telling me that "This plug-in is vulnerable and should be updated." but when I follow the link it STILL tells me I'm up to date! Does anyone know what's going on?

Heeeellllppp mmmeeeeeeeeee!!! I'm lost in computer land!

I know someone will come and rescue me from the Adobe monster!

Thanks in advance to my knight in shining keyboard . . .

Oh, yeah. Also, on every page now it says at the top "Firefox has prevented the outdated plug-in 'Adobe Flash' from running on ________.com" Is it me or something between Adobe and Linux?

You have to use the google chrome browser to view sites with the latest flash.

Adobe stopped supporting flash for linux and android as of 11.2.x

You need to add the google chrome PPA to your apt sources.

http://ubuntuportal.com/2014/04/how-...usty-tahr.html

There will be two methods in this link. DO NOT DO METHOD #1. This only downloads the deb package. It does not include the dependencies and google chrome won't start. I know, because I used that method when I was using ubuntu.

Instead do #2 : Installing google chrome via PPA. This method does work.

IMPORTANT:

There is an error in the package name in the article:
sudo apt-get install google-chrome

The actual package name is

Code:
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

Or you can also use Chromium, which is an OSS derivative of Google Chrome. At least I *seem* to remember that a recent Chromium too will ship its "own" Flash plugin.
