I've been using Windows7 + Firefox 23 + Flash 16.0.0.? (I'm not sure about that last digit.) This morning it suddenly said Flash was vulnerable and I had to update it. I went to update Flash and it said my Firefox was too old.

I tried to update Firefox last year and it didn't work at all so I went back to FF 23. I tried again today and FF 35.0.1 seemed to be okay. THEN I updated Flash to 16.0.0.296 and I'm okay. It sure is stupid that you use something everyday and one day it crashes to a halt.

I went to my old IE with Flash 11 and it was still working!! Why did Firefox say I had to upgrade Flash? (IE and Firefox on the same computer use different copies of Flash, I have learned.)

Also, I know Chrome interacts with Flash differently. Is it different in terms of how often you have to update either one?

Firefox does not completely disable flash. It will block it by default but there is an option to override the firefox warning and allow Flash to load.

Thus I stop using Firefox. Other browsers are way more user-friendly.
