CentOS7.7 system with firefox 70.0.1 installed.  The flash-plugin recently update to 32.0.0.293 and now when I look at about:plugins there's nothing about flash listed.  I reinstalled flash with 32.0.0.255 and 270, both of those older versions work as expected.

 

Anyone else seeing that and have a fix?

Yes, that's a known problem. You can either wait for a fixed version or downgrade to the previous release. See in the bug tracker:

Thanks for the confirmation and the bug tracker link.

 

Gonna downgrade systems if I get users complaining.  Otherwise just wait for the next update.

32.0.0.303 is out and this problem is NOT fixed in it.  CentOS 7.7, firefox 71.0 show no plugin installed once again.  Reverting to the 270 version again.

For security reasons, Flash Player for Linux has been compiled with updated library dependencies. Please refer to the bottom of https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/release-note/readme-flash-player-linux.html for a list of library dependencies. To continue using Flash Player on Linux requires updating to a distro that supports these libraries.

Updating to a distro that supports those libraries is not a viable solution for a lot of systems.  You need to fix the flash plugin to support RHEL/CentOS 7 at least. I can kind of understand not supporting 6 at this point.  RHEL 6 is going EOL 11/30/2020 and RHEL 7 going EOL 6/30/2024.

You are mistaken.  The i386 version of the player for both 32.0.0.293 and 32.0.0.303 has no such dependancy.  The fact this dependancy exists in the x86_64 version is clearly a symptom of a negligent/poor linking of the binary.

I'd like to clarify that my message was in response to maria__1 and not BiloxiGeek.  Also, I'd like to supplement my post to offer advise everyone that the i386 version of the plugin (both 32.0.0.293 and 32.0.0.303) does work just fine under even RHEL/CentOS 6 (32bit) and would work fine under a 32bit version of 7 if such a thing had existed.

I think I gotta call BS on maria__1's answer.  For linux there's a 32 bit and a 64 bit version of flash and there's two ways to get it; for ppapi and npapi.  Of those four different setups only the npapi x86_64 version is failing to work.

  I can confirm that the beta release, 3.0.0.324, appears to work on the 64 and 32 bit versions of RHEL/CentOS/Scientific 6 and 7 versions.  Inspection of the load library dependancies of all the compiled binaries does indead show that they're no longer encumbered by point-release dependancies of GLIBCXX_3.4.

  Hopefully the release version of new RPMs can happen soon now, as I'm sure most of the effected audience for this problem is using the RPMs to install/manage their software installation.
