Hi, Gpher john

                The link active x is for 13 version. How to get the latest  active x. When i click the link, it asks me to save the file for version 13

Visit http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html, scroll down and select the version there that you desire.  Adobe has changed from their longtime static links to a new link for every major update.

Hi, This is connected with adobe flash player status and hence i  am continuing this thread.
                     Even though i updated the adobe flash player, the plugin status of the firefox reminds to update this flash player. I tried uninstall and reinstall, but the status never changed. The net result is the videos of TV sites, stops suddenly with error loading media file and stops in the middle of the viewing.
                       How to correct it. Avast software update shows it as updated status. The latest adobe flash player version i have is 16.0.0.296 version of firefox
NPSWF32_16_0_0_296.dll this the file shown in add on tab, plugins firefox

If you are using v2015 you can keep Flash updated through the "Software Updater".

Hi, Thank you Gopher,
                            Now firefox shows it as updated. I already had this version, downloaded yesterday. Yesterday it shows as no adobe flash player installed in your computer status. But today, after starting the computer and checking the status, it shows as updated. Is there any issue or security lapse in the previous version? Why firefox says as vulnerable, when i had the latest version released then. The version 16.0.0.297 yesterday.
                                   I happened to see the security issue on flash player on some critical vulnerability on their latest edition. Does this version solves the issue or just updated?

The current version of Adobe Flash is 16.0.0.305, which is the one that fixes the latest known vulnerability.  With Adobe Flash having a bad reputation with repeated vulnerabilities, it's likely that other exploits are already being tested and possibly used.  The window for Flash being secure doesn't last long.
