Adobe Flash is unsafe?
« on: July 14, 2015, 08:49:32 AM »
Can't watch Youtube or anything.  Every time I try to bring up a page that involves Flash of some kind, Firefox starts freaking out and telling me that it's unsafe.  I try clicking the "What's the risk?" button and it just takes me to the Adobe Flash download page.

The rest of my computer is fine, no viruses, malware, etc.

wat do

try using chrome and check for similar errors

iirc firefox uses an external plugin for adobe, unlike chrome which has built in flash support.

also there has been a serious security exploit with an older version of flash last week so im guessing you just need to update your firefox flash
