Having problems with Adobe Flash Player. Was there anything in the latest release that could cause these problems?

What problem? Some browsers won't use Flash anymore as it is too risky.

Are you using Edge? That complains about anything that wants to use Flash, after rendering a complete mess of an approximation to the site.

I managed to find how you tell it to accept it, but forget where and how.

Thanks for your replies guys.
I was using an old internet link that I'd set up a few years ago. It had always worked until the latest Microsoft Update, where it now asks me to "Click to enable Adobe Flash Player".
When Bob asked me if I was using Edge, I thought I'd try it; and, guess what, I got straight through to the web page without being asked about the Flash Player. Very strange.

LOL maybe that was my problem too. I was using my "imported from IE11" link when I got the Flash prompt.

I'll see what happens on my other laptop where I haven't run Edge, and I'll try just starting from a search for the target site.
