What makes out life more complex is the fact that for some software, such as the ones from Adobe, updates can be done by our end users. We need to control these updates and prevent regular users from updating their workstations.
When we’ll be done with our testing, we’ll let those updates flow in, or perhaps we never will, it all depends on what we see fit at that time.
If you open now the Adobe Reader application and you click on Help menu, you will see those updates are available.
I do not know what version I have, nor do I know how to find out.
You might still want to apply the updates to your network, but maybe you prefer doing it in a time frame you choose or want to test it before applying.
Adobe Reader users on Windows can find the appropriate update here.
Acrobat Pro users on Macintosh can find the appropriate update here.
I do not understand any of the technical language used in the solutions already given for this problem. I do restart Firefox but the red UPDATE NOW notation remains on my plugin status page.
I give up - where it says my plugins need updating, it's listed as Adobe Acrobat, but when I save it to my downloads & click to run the program, it says Adobe Reader!
