Adobe hasn't updated its linux flash plugin for some time:

If you absolutely need the full functionality provided provided by the latest adobe flash plugin, install Google Chrome; it has the latest flash plugin built in. Note, you need to use Chrome, not Chromium. Google no longer has the flash plugin built into Chromium.

If you want the latest version of Flash, install the package that is bundled with Chrome. You can find that on AlienBobs website:

To use this in Firefox, build the Freshplayer plugin:

This is the only option to get Flash 15 working in Firefox. Apart from Wine (Pipelight), but that doesn't have the same performance.
