If you are still experiencing problems, ensure you are running the latest version of Google's web browser. Note that Google now disables Flash in Chrome by default and will ask you to enable it only when you visit a site that doesn't have an HTML5 alternative to Flash. For those who do wish to use Flash, the need to enable it every time will be a nuisance.

Everyone should have an updated Chrome by February, when the most recent beta version goes stable.
Adobe today announced plans to end-of-life its Flash browser plug-in, ceasing development and distribution of the software at the end of 2020.
Adobe encourages content creators to migrate flash content to HTML5, Web GL, and Web Assembly formats.
Starting with mac OS Sierra and Safari 10, Apple disabled Adobe Flash by default to focus on HTML 5, and Flash has never been available on Apple's i OS devices.
Google's Chrome browser has also been de-emphasizing Flash since the middle of last year.
Today, most browser vendors are integrating capabilities once provided by plugins directly into browsers and deprecating plugins.

You’ll see an improvement in responsiveness and efficiency for many sites." Flash has never been supported by i OS, and was removed from Android some years ago. Essentially, then, Flash is not your friend and if you can find an alternative web page that doesn't use Flash for playing video or to display some other content, then do that.
Google told us in May that it would eventually block Adobe Flash Player content on Chrome.
