For some weeks now, Flash has tried to update on my Mac several times a week - sometimes several times a day! After the first couple of updates I decided to ignore the attempts - worried that they were viruses!!!
Today, an update popped up so I closed Safari and installed it... That was the '26au' (as shown in the screen grab). Then a short while later, Adobe's update window popped up again! This time it was for the '26ppau' file. As you can see from the second screen grab, this file was its 4th attempt!!!
What is going on? Why is Flash trying to update with differing file names?
The file with '26au' in the file name is for the NPAPI plugin, used by Safari and Firefox. The file with '26ppau' in the file name is for Chromium-based browsers. Please provide the following:
Thanks for that help! And here is the screen-shot & link... I can only guess, that the 2 versions shown in Sys Prefs are for; Safari and Chrome? It would be good if it stated what the two Plug-ins were for!
Thank you for posting the log file and screenshot. Essentially, you have both the NPAPI plugin (for Firefox and Safari) and the PPAPI plugin (for Chromium-based browsers) installed. You updated the NPAPI plugin, but not the PPAPI plugin, thus the notification dialog displaying was for the PPAPI plugin, which wasn't being updated. According to the log file, and the screenshot, you now have the latest version for both installed.
To prevent confusion in the future, I recommend deleting all previously downloaded Flash Player installation log files.
Can you check to see if there is a FlashPlayerinstallManager.log file in /Library/Logs (the system /Library directory, not the user's /Library directory). If so, please upload that to cloud.acrobat.com/send and post the link to the uploaded file.
