    "I wish it would just go away"

    January 22, 2015  |   By OJB

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.287

    Pros

    Not so much a pro but it is often required so I guess we just have to put up with it.

    Cons

    Often won't install. When it does install there are constant updates. Always seems to be suffering from security issues.

    Summary

    I wish this buggy, insecure piece of junk would just go away so we could get on with better alternatives.

    "Downloaded Flash Player, but impossible to install."

    December 21, 2014  |   By Itzdon32

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.235

    Pros

    worked fine 3 years on mini mac, till Adobe began blacking out videos and instructing me to download 16.0, which I did. Nightmare from then on.

    Cons

    All the ways Adobe tells me to INSTALL Flash wind up at a dead end. Even the checkmark "Let Adobe install for you" doesn't work. I can't believe, after 28 years using a mac, that one company, with one program, could bring my computer to it's knees. Have spent many hours looking for the answer. I need help here! I'm 82 years old and love my mac, and all macs I've had before. Somebody?

    "Difficult installation"

    August 18, 2014  |   By M. Pitts-Campbell

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 14.0.0.176

    Pros

    Seems to work, when I finally got it installed.

    Cons

    Download was unable to upgrade/delete the previous version. I went back and forth to Adobe's Web site, always coming up with the same unworkable solution. I eventually had to god through my files, manually, and delete, manually, everything related to Flash. THEN it was happy to install, as a new installation rather than an upgrade.

    Summary

    Be VERY wary of downloading this.

    "What is all this crap about it not working?"

    February 22, 2014  |   By Mark Thornton

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 12.0.0.70

    Pros

    I have 12 installed. I don't recall ever having a problem with any of them. Installation problems??? - It should be a no brainer automatic install, as Mac systems remind you of updates . . .

    Cons

    I don't know of any.

    Summary

    It never occurred to me that it would be a problem, especially with so many of the "reviewers". I have to guess there is something wrong with their Macs . . . .

    "Adobe Flash Player on Mac is a joke"

    December 21, 2013  |   By radrians

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.170

    Pros

    None. If it doesn't work consistently and properly, then it ain't worthy of any stars. CNET...you need a minus-star above.

    Cons

    As with some many other reviewers, my MacBook Pro "hates" Adobe Flash Player. After repeated downloads over many months...it never has worked properly. Will hang up in the system, will not let me "allow" the Mac to load it, will disappear from the computer mysteriously. I think Mac hates Flash so much that it spits it out like a bitter pill.

    Summary

    Since Flash (and Silverlight player, forget it, it's Microsoft) are the only two players that Amazon Prime streaming video accepts, you might as well cancel your subscription to Amazon video streaming on your computer. The folks at Amazon should raise holy heck with Adobe AND Apple to get their heads out of their butts and settle their differences.
