I am little confused about whether I may or not update Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox, on a Fedora 20 machine.

Every time I try to see, let's say a YouTube video, I get a warning message about my Flash plugin being outdated and a potential danger.

My current config is

[root@localhost ~]# yum info  flash-plugin
Plugin abilitati:refresh-packagekit
Pacchetti installati
Nome         : flash-plugin
Arch         : i386
Versione     : 11.2.202.400
Rilascio     : release
Dimensione   : 18 M
Repo         : installed
Sommario     : Adobe Flash Player 11.2
URL          : http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
Licenza      : Commercial
Descrizione  : Adobe Flash Plugin 11.2.202.400 Fully Supported: Mozilla SeaMonkey 1.0+, Firefox 1.5+, Mozilla 1.7.13+

And Firefox seems to be up to date:

[root@localhost ~]# yum info firefox
Plugin abilitati:refresh-packagekit
Pacchetti installati
Nome         : firefox
Arch         : i686
Versione     : 38.0

I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

Since I upgraded to Linux fedora-pc 4.4.9-300.fc23.x86_64, I tried the following instruction:

yum update firefox
yum -y remove  flash-plugin --nogpgcheck
yum clean all
yum remove  adobe-release
rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
yum install flash-plugin
yum info flash-plugin
