I got this version earlier today (had to reboot after applying some maintenance & it appeared). I am keeping half an eye on the Austalian Open Tennis. That means I've got 4 live streams coming in from 4 different courts simultaneously. This version of Flash is exhibiting a nice improvement. Used to be that you couldn't have more than one stream in full screen mode at one time. I currently have 4 full screen sessions going at once. I can "surf" the 4 channels by hovering the mouse over the icon for Flash in the Taskbar & then moving it back & forth over the cascade of thumbnails that appears above it. (Or Ctrl+t, UpArrow, and then Left/Right Arrow.) Each channel appears behind the thumbnails. If I want to actually watch one, I click it (Enter). Otherwise, I just move the mouse out of the way (Esc) & focus reverts to whatever besides TV I'm looking at on the system. Very cool!

As for the whole business of protected mode that I've griped about a few times in this discussion in the past, I just don't have the mental energy to check that again right now. I may try it after another couple of releases but for now, I just don't care enough about it to verify whether that's been fixed. I'm taking my chances running unprotected. I must say I think my chances are very remote that I'll suffer anything bad, what with all the other protective tools I've got running here (Spybot, MalwareBytes, AVGFree, MSSecurity Essentials, my own engaged, informed way of operating).

It was nice while it lasted. After a couple of hours, it just quit acting like that. It has reverted to its old behavior, which is that even if you don't explicitly exit full screen mode, switching focus away from a Flash full screen window closes the full screen. The Flash stream window is still there but you have to reinstate the full screen to get it back. So if you try to switch to a second stream to put it into full screen as well, you lose the first full screen. Back to one at a time.

I suspect that closing all streams & browser windows & relaunching Firefox from scratch will bring it back, maybe for a few hours. Maybe there's a memory leak. Maybe there's some global system memory usage threshold that if you cross, Flash can't handle multiple simultaneous full screens any more. I'm just guessing. Whatever. It's not like it's that big a hardship. It would just be nice if it acted consistently.

Flash player is annoying. It asks me to update it, and when I do, after some time, it says that the update can't be installed. Also, I tried reinstalling it. But flash doesn't work. Hence Youtube doesn't work.

Try using the official Adobe Flash uninstaller. Then reinstall the latest version. (Don't forget to uncheck any unwanted "stuff" like additional browsers, toolbars, etc.)

Beware of latest Adobe Flash Player Update.
The attached image says it all. If you have automatic updates enabled then Adobe will install what I would class as malware onto your system.
