Adobe was quite reactive...for a short time i guess!

Yesterday was reading the article posted from forum member A Guy: 3 ways to make Adobe Flash less annoying and/or risky and how to get rid of the Flash Player or only Click to Play in the browser parameter.

Unfortunately find Adobe frustrating. It was only last week that it was updated. I thought they were just updating slightly out of MS patch Tuesday cycle and it'd be a few weeks til next time. So to find they have unleashed another update so soon after is pretty annoying. I am very wary of all updates released by all companies, Microsoft, Apple, Adobe etc etc. I think QA testing on updates has got pretty lax given the amount of times these companies break features/functionalities with 'updates'. Due to the lack of trust it means I rigorously check and test everything after an update to see if all is ok, which is not how anyone wants to be spending their time. So for Adobe to unleash two updates in short time is annoying - I am sure there was some reason they felt the need but wish they could of spared last weeks drop and saved the fixes for today's updated edition.

So you would rather companies leave their software unpatched for a while after a security hole is found, leaving your computer vulnerable to attack instead fixing the new threat as quickly as possible? I would much rather deal with the annoyance of frequent updates than leaving my computer unprotected. Keep in mind most of these programs, which run on very complex OSes, have very complex coding and it is difficult to impossible to avoid the errors and oversights that cause the security holes.

I guess not but I am just pretty tired of the constant patching and updates. I think QA testing is not the greatest. It just seems I spend more time patching, updating the computer/mobile devices these days than actually using them. Maybe this is a little harsh on Adobe but Microsoft/Apple release plenty of updates that cause grief. I lose trust in them

Keep in mind that there are thousands, if not tens or hundreds of thousands, or more, of possible hardware configurations that programs have to be compatible with and there is no way any developer can anticipate all of them so there are bound to be problems slipping through the cracks. Still, I agree MS has been having more than usual updates that cause problems lately.

However, the deliberate ad/nagware MS has been ramming down our throats is a "whole nuther story".

Has anyone had problems with the previous version(18.0.0.203). In my case I could not watch videos in full screen, Internet Explorer stopped responding.

I hope it be something small and It is fixed with this new version.

I often can't watch embedded YouTube videos full screen. When I run into that, I just click on the direct link to YouTube.

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.
