He'd get tired of doing that eventually. Adobe has been pulling this crap forever; I've lost track on how many times I've had to update my flash player. HTML5 can't come soon enough.

Great timing for Adobe. I bet the management are having a field day about this after their unconvincing rebuttal to Apple.

However much I hate Apple's arrogant approach to their App Store, I can't wait for a day when Flash has gone the way of RealPlayer.

The best protection is limiting exposure to all of the potential threats.

Adobe and MS have 12 plugins in the addons folder by default on fresh firefox downloads. You can safely turn off 11 of them and not miss anything while closing 11 possible ways to get infected.

I'm not just saying that, one of them even has a warning on it that says "known to cause security and stability issues". Get rid of it.

From FF it's Tools->Addons->Plugins(not extensions, look at plugins), are you doing it yet?

@J_RaD
I had DLM/"getPlusPlus for Adobe 16260" that needed to be update first...

disable getPlusPlus Plugin
restart firefox
install the new Adobe DLM (go to the Install Adobe Flash Player page)
restart firefox
close download manager
enable the getPlusPlus for Adobe 16263
restart firefox

You can update FlashPlayer without all that extra Adobe GetPlus rigamarole...

Download Adobe Flash Player executable [fpdownload.adobe.com].

I would really like a more secure alternative to FlashPlayer - is there one?

All Adobe products are insecure

I leave the Flash plug-in running but add the Firefox extension Flashblock. This stops all Flash loading and replaces it with a video-style Play button. If you want to see the Flash content, just click on the button. Makes sites load faster also which is good.

Adobe says I have v 10.1.53.64. The revolving icon suggests its working as it should, but I'm getting a white screen when trying to play back in full screen mode.

Adobe documentation on its site is the most Byzantine I've ever seen, and I realize that I have no interest in making a career of trying to figure out how to fix this. Up till now it's always worked fine. I'm running on XP Pro.

Any thoughts?

Works for me. I'm using the same version of Flash, but on XP Home.

I just tried an embedded Flash video on a page with the browser in fullscreen mode. I assume that's what you mean? Or do you mean with Flash covering the entire screen?

I mean Flash expanded to cover the entire page.

Never had a problem until this update... and I can't precisely correlate the problem precisely enough to say it was the update.
