I've noticed that the "about" page has stopped (reliably) displaying the version. I am running Windows 8.1 with 220.127.116.11 installed and the behavior is largely the same in IE, Chrome, and Firefox. This has been going on for a while, but bothered me again recently when I was updating and checking versions of everything.
Ironically, when I registered today and then went back to the "about" tab in Firefox, it showed me the version but not the animations.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Yes, we are aware of this and it has been reported to the appropriate team internally. Unfortunately, at this time, I don't have an update as to when it'll be fixed. Alternatively, you can try using the version checker on the https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html page. Note that most browser's disable Flash by default and it'll need to be enabled in order for the widget to check the version installed.
Thanks. I had already bookmarked that page as an alternate, and am aware of the enabling issue. I just wanted to make sure it was reported, since I had been seeing issues for several months.
You're welcome, and thank you for reporting.
