G'day Richard, and Welcome to linux.org

Which browser are you using ?

Is there a specific reason you have Adobe flash player installed ?...perhaps a specific website that wont work without it ?

How do you know Adobe stopped working ?

The modern alternative to Adobe Flash is HTML5....it is included in all modern browsers, Firefox and Chrome in particular.

Adobe is to be discontinued by the end of 2020

Have a read...
Flash is a plug-in for your web browser that allows you to watch videos and use interactive web pages on some websites. While HTML5, which is a more modern solution, is increasingly offered, there are still some websites which won't work without Flash.


If you do not have Flash installed, you will probably see a message telling you so when you visit a website that needs it. Flash is available as a free (but not open-source) download for most web browsers.

Adobe has announced that they will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020. Consequently, for security reasons, the Flash plug-in should not be used after 2020.

@Richard Pearce ....how sure are you that the games site will not run without adobe ?

Have you tried Firefox browser ?

as per my post above, ""Adobe has announced that they will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020.
