    I keep getting this on my web browser.

    I installed Google Chrome that did not solve this.

    Made the suggested changes and in Chrome.

    I never use Google Chrome. I use Avant Browser.

    This happens on both my Windows XP and Windows 8.1 computer.

    How can this be fixed?

    That is just the subject I came up with. I want to disable this so this does not show anymore.

    What is a TS? Is this something to do with Adobe or Google Chrome?

    If you have the latest Adobe Flash player,
    check your global settings by right clocking on the video that will not play.
    When the window opens up, delete all stored data and all peer to peer data.

    Finally... it looks like you are talking about browsers blocking Adobe Flash because of potential security issues. There were workarounds (each browser had their own) to allow Flash if you wanted to take the risk... For me, I updated Flash player the other day and then a day or two later Firefox stopped blocking it... I guess Adobe got off the white/blacklist somehow after their last update.

    Right, Firefox blocked Flash until the final update came out. There was an emergency update last week, then another update this Tuesday.

    I would say to decide whether you really need Flash, but Flash isn't the biggest security hole you have.

    I block flash on every site I visit except for during the duration when I want to view a Flash video on that site, because otherwise, it makes my system slow way down, I guess because it runs in the background on pages I have opened but am not presently viewing, most often, ESPN.

    I keep updating the thing, but a day later I get on most sites "Firefox has prevented the outdated plugin "Adobe Flash" from running on [domain name here]." I no longer updated as it's time for Flash to go to the wayside.

    There is an extension for Firefox called "Flashdisable".
    It defaults to Flash off. Jut clicking an Icon on the tool bar will turn it on or if it is on turn it off .
    I have it and it works very well.

    You don't need an extension anymore, as of a few versions ago it's built into Firefox just go to about:addons, select plugins and set it to "Ask to Activate"

    As for the recent flood of updates. Last week Hacking Team, a horrible company that sells hacking tools and spyware, ended up being hacked themselves. Part of the hack revealed a bunch of previously unknown exploits that the company was using. Those exploits are what the current flood of updates are addressing.
