    Forgive me if this question was already posted, but I did not see it so her goes. I installed a fresh copy of Yosemite on my mac mini. Everything works fine expect for flash. I downloaded the latest version (15.0) from Adobe and installed it, but flash websites don't work at all. Shockwave player shows up in my installed plug-ins in Safari, but when I go to the Test Adobe Shockwave page, it says the plug-in is missing. I have checked all of my Safari settings that I know of. Did I do something wrong or is this a known issue? Thanks!

    The way Flash player is named in the "installed plug-ins" list is confusing. Shockwave player is a separate product.
    This is the page to check if Flash Player is installed: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    There are very few sites that use Shockwave anymore so I wouldn't worry about that unless you have a specific need.
