Chrome and lack of Flash support
Written by Janaka Jayawardena   
Thursday, 21 January 2016

Users on our Windows systems may have noticed that the Chrome browser will sometimes reject components on websites that are running Flash. If you are running into that problem, try visiting the site using Firefox or Internet Explorer.

The problem we are running into is a mismatch in patch delivery schedules from Adobe (which maintains the Flash plugin used by Firefox and Internet Explorer) and Google (which maintains the Flash plugin for Chrome). In recent months, the gap between these patch deliveries has widened.

We expect a Google update for Flash to “fix” this discrepancy soon but the next time a new Flash update shows up, we will probably experience the same problem.
