I can no longer play several YouTube videos as the Firefox update keeps coming up and the video will not play. When will you be updating to 34?

The firefox-kde version 34.0.5 package is already in the repositories, the non patched version of firefox in the Ubuntu repositories would be up to them to update.

However with that said, the error you are getting is for the flash player plugin and not firefox.

Adobe release a security bulletin about security issues in flash player that required an update:

This caused youtube and some other sites as well, to check your flash player plugin version and not playback video if you haven’t updated your flash player to version

But it takes me to a page that says my flash is up to date but that Firefox needs updating. Strange.

First, make sure you are running the blue systems patched firefox (firefox-kde) package?
If you already are then completely uninstall (purge) Flash player and reinstall it, the same thing occured for a few users on the Manjaro forums and this seemed to fix their issue.

Under Ubuntu I believe the commands are:

sudo apt-get --purge -remove flashplugin-installer sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

after purging flash player plugin you could alternatively install the adobe repository from here:

I copied and pasted the purge line into the terminal and this is what I got:
E: Command line option --purge is not understood


I got it to work by updating Firefox and uninstalling the orginal plugins and installing the plugins/files in the screenshot.
I used Synaptic.

oops, I apologize for that, the command structure was wrong:

sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

I edited the above post. It now works.

Cool, :slight_smile:
