Adobe Flash Player "Plug-in Version" Updated

As indicated by the comments in Mozilla Firefox 13.0.1 Addresses Adobe Flash Crashes, the Firefox update did not solve all of the problems people who use the "Plug-in Version" (non-IE) have been having with Adobe Flash Player since the update to include Protected Mode (“sandboxing”)
Thanks to ky331 who reported:
1) Flash Player plug-in version only (for browsers othan than IE) has been updated to 11.3.300.262
[Flash ActiveX for IE remains at 11.3.300.257 ]

2) Users of Sandboxie experiencing problems with Flash 11.3 should update Sandboxie to version 3.72

I recommend the direct download link for the update since it does not include the unnecessary, pre-checked optional McAfee Security Scan Plus scan.  Alternatively, the update is available at the Adobe Flash Player Download Center.

Verify Installation

To verify the Adobe Flash Player version number installed on your computer, go to the About Flash Player page, or right-click on content running in Flash Player and select "About Adobe Flash Player" from the menu. 

    Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
    May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

Keep in mind that the UNinstaller will remove ALL versions of Flash... so if you run the uninstaller, you'll have to then install BOTH the (older) activeX version as well as the (new) plug-in version [that is, assuming you use both types of browsers].

I installed the new plug-in version over the old one, which seems to have worked successfully.
