In System Preferences click on Flash Player and then on the Updates tab, where there is an option to "Never check for updates (not recommended)."I feel that almost every week a flash player message pops up asking me to update and it really annoys me... so can someone explain how to avoid those messages popping up??
And be prepared for the consequences - flash vulnerabilities can be serious, and expose you to malware and other security issues.In System Preferences click on Flash Player and then on the Advanced tab. Under Updates there is an option to "Never check for updates (not recommended)."
I believe I read that the install process has recently changed, either with version 18 or the update immediately prior. It won't now require you to close the browser to install.It wouldn't be so bad if it updated itself rather than having to download the DMG file, close all browsers, run the installer and then restart browsers and go back to what I was working on.
You can also put a piece of electrical tape over that red light on your car's dashboard. #stillNotAdvisedyes, now you dont have to close browser, but it appears a message, then a website opens, then you download a file and install. it's really bad the way it updates, very very annoying.
thanks for the trick kaibob. sick of flash
I understand that. But you will have to admit that there's a big difference between not needing/not running anything that requires Adobe Flash and having a need and running it but refusing to patch vulnerabilities.I haven't had Flash on any of my computers since 2010 and haven't needed it once. Your mileage will vary obviously, but I would consider dumping it entirely if possible.
