Subject description: And uses commas instead of decimal points
 

since updating to shockwave Flash I have been presented with a warning that the flash is vulnerable . On checking [tools] > [plugins] I see the entries for shockwave flash: 11,2,202,442 last update 1/29/2015
the message from pale moon is:
This plugin is vulnerable and should be updated

Pale Moon has prevented the outdated plugin
"Adobe Flash" from running on www.hulu.com
Update now
[Allow now] [Allow and Remember]
----------end-of-warning-----------------
after click of [Allow now] the app proceeded.
I checked the Adoby site where the date for the latest update is 1/29/2015 but the version number is punctuated with periods as opposed to pale moon reporting the same version number punctuated with commas . Is that it, just a typo ?

I got the same (erroneous) message after updating flash recently. You can disable plugin blocking in Palemoon by typing "about:config" (no quotes) in the address bar, clicking "I'll be careful" if necessary, then typing "extensions.blocklist" (no quotes) in the search line at the top of that page.

Look for "extensions.blocklist.enabled" and simply double-click it to set it to false.

You'll have to refresh the flash page (or maybe restart the browser), but you shouldn't get any blocked plugins after that.

Subject description: your input was very useful
 

The only question that I have now is: should I be on the lookout for a future update of flash , to reset this value? That is what does extentions.blocklist.enable control?

The setting controls whether or not the browser disables plugins that are considered vulnerable. But as you experienced, it can be mistaken. I prefer to keep my own plugins up-to-date (or decide to use an older one).

You can always check your plugins here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck

If you want to switch the plugin blocklist back on later, it's easy to do.
