In my case to answer to Patrick, I see the warning message to "Update
Flash Player" whenever I click on a Facebook attached video despite I
already have the latest Flash Player plugin installed in FF56
Nothing to do!

Tried to uninstall flash-player then uninstall the fresh-player (which
surprisingly was already installed).
Then install just fresh-player and finally re-install flash-player.

So far only Google Chrome seems to be able to play *swf* containers.

Nor Firefox, nor Opera are able to do it.



Don't know if you saw this, but even Adobe themselves discourage the use of
flashplayer. I haven't had it installed for years now, and do not miss it at

Yes I know that flash-player is not recommended but the question is: why
it works on Firefox 56 for Windows and Chrome for Linux only?

It is more a technical issue than a security one for what I can argue.
