I think you are on to something!  I checked my plugins and I have the 
Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.356 and FF says that it was blocked because it 
has known security problems.  It also says that it should be updated.

As I understand it, Adobe no longer issues updates for Linux.  If there 
are any updates how can I get them.  Note:  I am using Mint/Mate so if 
it is available in the Ubuntu repository, how do I add this repository?  
If this is the last version (see the above paragraph)  is there any work 
around?
