In order to use Adobe Flash you need to update to a later version:

  1. Click the Download Flash button.
  2. Safari opens Adobe Flash Player installer page on the Adobe website.
  3. Click the Download now button on the Adobe website to download the latest Adobe Flash Player installer.
  4. After the download completes, open the downloaded disk image (usually located in your Downloads folder) if it does not open automatically.
  5. In the window that appears, open the installer and follow the onscreen instructions.

Note: If you need to run an older version of Flash, you can use web plug-in management to re-enable it for specific websites using "Run in Unsafe Mode" in Safari 6.1 or later.
