not do a complete removal of it just the shorter version using synaptic.
What is your version of firefox-esr? 45.8? Can you see Shockwave Flash
in Tools / Add-ons / Plugins? Is it activated? What version is it? What
version is displayed here (if any)?
Mozilla disabled some old versions of Flash plugin by default, and
introduced more aggressive use of click-to-play. I speculate that these
changes may have made it to the ESR channel.
The good news is that Adobe have released Flash 24 for NPAPI (Firefox).
I am using Flash Player 126.96.36.199 in firefox 52.0-1 amd64 on sid.
