Hello

I run Mozilla Firefox as my main Web browser. Ever since I upgraded from version 50 to 51, I've been having problems with Adobe Flash. When I try to go to a  Web site with flash on it, I get a message that says Flash is out of date. I have to click Activate Flash every time. I've run the latest Flash installer from Adobe's Web site and I even went to the What Is My Browser page to check that I have flash. I am running Windows XP SP3.

Thanks in advance

You might want to take a look at the thread entitled, Firefox 51.0 for XP SP3, on this very forum that's just a few lines down the page.

 

There are likely to be problems, and in increasing number, if you try to run Firefox releases that are not in the Extended Service Release (ESR) status.  Windows XP has not been officially supported by Microsoft for some years now and as web browsers continue to develop, and backward compatibility is not something that just happens "by accident" anymore, fewer and fewer current releases will continue to work with Windows XP.  This should not come as a shock at this point in time.

Did you try to install the latest version after uninstalling the previous one completely from control panel? Uninstall Flash Player NPAPI and restart PC. Check if Flash plugin in FF is really uninstalled. Disable your antivirus if any before attempting to install the new version. I always do it that way. No Flash problem on my XP SP3.
