Adobe Flash Player is a plugin that allows browsers such as Firefox to display Flash media on web pages. Flash is often used for animations, videos and games. This article explains how to install Flash.

When you visit a webpage that uses Flash and the plugin is missing, you will see the message 'A plugin is needed to display this content' for parts of the page that require Flash (if at all):

This is the official adobe website. 3: Download and run the executable to install it. 3.5: Note: Flash will try to auto install McAfee Safe Connect, which is vpn software. 4: After Flash installs you have to restart your computer. (I tested it) 5: Go to the site you want to use flash on. 6: Click the icon between your reload button and the website. Now, when adobe flash player is the last of the chrome plugins, we started adding features not so close to the original “plugins” idea. So, in addition to adobe flash player menus, we added Clear History and History On/Off buttons so you can clear history and disable/enable history recording directly from the Plugins menu. Click the icon and you'll open the 'plugins' menu. Here you can control Adobe Flash Player: it will open the Chrome flash player settings page where you can enable and disable the flash player globally or add exceptions (allow and block the flash plugin on specific sites).
