A question about Adobe Flash
#1
I run Ubuntu 16.04 and use Firefox with the Adobe Flash plug-in. I keep reading that it is a security risk.

What flash player should I use instead?

None.

Flash Player is an antiquated technology with a plethora of security issues that have never been addressed. If you need to use it for some reason, however, you have to live together with the security risks it poses.

The problem is that a lot of the things on the web require a flash ṕlayer in order to see them. How do you deal with that?

I simply will not look at web sites that require Flash. It's their loss, not mine.

Well luckily less and less requires Flash.  However if you really need to look at said things then just use Adobe Flash.   It is what it is.

You should setup a specific browser to use Flash for those core sites and then your main browser disable Flash.  That way you reduce your exposure.
