Noticed a game that requires Flash was not working properly today. I went over to adobe's flash test page at Adobe - Flash Player which also tells you your flash version number.. Whenever I load that page the same thing happens, the small square where your version number is supposed to appear displays as a puzzle piece icon and disappears in a fraction of a second leaving nothing there. At the top of the screen a video appears with a play button, and that disappears in 3 seconds also leaving that area blank. Multiple refreshes had same result. I reinstalled Flash from download page and same result again.
I checked another flash test site (codegeek) and it says: "You do not have flash player installed" - In Chrome settings, Flash is set to "Ask First", which is the only option other then block. When I added codegeek's test page to the allow list it worked and now says: You have flash player 30.0.0 installed. Do I really have to do that every time I go to a site that uses Flash? And what about games? The Steam game that I was having problems with today does not show me the address of the server, I could dig around on the game's forums or site probably find out but that's a lot of trouble to go through when I want to play a new game.
Anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong and how to get flash installed properly?
Win 10- all updates installed, chrome and graphics drivers all latest version. Videos, movies and youtube all play normally.
Thx for any help

This is a browser issue, not a Flash Player issue. The browser controls the loading of the plugin, not the plugin. Most browser vendors block Flash by default, forcing users to enable it, usually on a per-site basis. You can either enable it for each site you want, or add the following to Chrome's list of exceptions, which whitelists all sites.
