How to prevent flash from updating

18 May

As far as Adobe is concerned the bug that causes Shockwave Flash to crash in Chrome has been fixed.

When you have auto update enabled, your system periodically checks for new versions of Java.While we are showing you how to disable automatic updates for selected applications, you should not turn off the option indefinitely.Once you have finished the task, it’s highly recommended updates for the software should be turned back on as soon as possible.Instead, change preferences for how often you'd like to be notified of newer versions.The default setting is to notify on a weekly basis.You'll need to manually enable Flash if you wish to use it.For those who do wish to use Flash the need to enable it every time will be a nuisance, but that is Google's plan as it encourages the use of HTML5 over Flash.I tried to disable the blocking in the advance settings however they don't allow you to make the choice to completely stop it.I do NOT want to switch browsers but the is is frustrating. I have the most current version of Adobe Flash and Firefox insists on constantly blocking it. A new empty '''blocklist.xml''' file will be created. Lock that new file so that a new set of data can't be downloaded.I have the most current version of Adobe Flash and Firefox insists on constantly blocking it.
