Just FYI re Firefox and Flash

Postby draclvr » Tue Jul 14, 2015 9:42 am

If you use Firefox and are getting Flash error messages, Firefox is now blocking all versions of Flash until Adobe releases an update to address two zero-day exploits.

I noticed that just today - so we should click on "Block" until these updates are available?

I would click on block unless it's something you really want to watch.

Yes, noticed this as I use Firefox rather than IE.

I had just updated my Flash when Firefox started doing it again, so I was wondering what was going on... then this article showed up in my news feed. Aha! That's why. I should use IE more as IE 11 is really quite good, but I'm just so used to Firefox..
