Re: Updates 9/10/19 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

What, no flash update for FF for Win 7 Pro, 32-bit today?

I followed the link and downloaded the installer onto my PC and ran it with FF closed. It seemed to run ok.  Launched FF when installer said "finished" and checked version number here, but it still says 32.0.0. Tried downloading/installing into FF a second time but it's still v32.0.0.

Flash v32.0.0.255 installed into IE11 on same Win 7 Pro, 32-bit PC on first try...

Re: Updates 9/10/19 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

Ron,

That's a "weird" link.   Use this one instead:   https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/

Also:   You can go to your Control Panel, Flash Player (32 bit), Updates... to see what's installed.

Re: Updates 9/10/19 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

For the first time that I recall, Microsoft did NOT release a monthly update for the Malicious Software Removal Tool.

The latest version remains v5.75, the August '19 update.

Re: Updates 9/10/19 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

So why did I get the latest flash update for IE11 running in Win 7, 32-bit yesterday?

Makes no sense to offer the update for IE but not for FF since more peeps are probably using FF than IE11 these days, even on 32-bit PCs...

Re: Updates 9/10/19 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

UPDATE:

I checked in Control Panel on my Win 7, 32-bit PC as @ky331 suggested. it shows Flash 32.0.0.255 is installed for both NPAPI and ActiveX, but when I check the version number that's installed in FF at the Adobe link I posted above, it says "32.0.0" for FF but 32.0.0.255 for IE11. So it seems my link is truncating the version number installed in FF.

The link ky331 posted tells me what Flash version is available for each browser, but  doesn't show me what version is actually installed in the browser being used. My link checks for the version installed, and had always been accurate in the past when I confirmed a Flash update.

Live and learn...

Re: Updates 9/10/19 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

Ron, the link I gave SHOULD tell you the version installed in any particular browser.

Keep in mind that Firefox has now relegated Flash to CLICK TO ACTIVATE status, provided you've also told Firefox to allow Flash upon activation.

If FF is set not to allow Flash, or if you fail to click to activate, then you won't see the version displayed.
