Mozilla Flash Upgrade Statistics

19 Set/09

firefoxThe Mozilla development team announced earlier that month that they would check the Flash version of Firefox users after each upgrade to inform users about security issues if they were not running the latest version of Adobe Flash. They estimated that more than 80% of all Firefox users would run an outdated – and thus vulnerable – version of Adobe Flash.

First statistics are now in and they do look impressive. On a global scale more than 10 million Firefox users have clicked on the Flash update link posted on the What’s new page shown after Firefox updates in one week. The Mozilla developers have published a graph displaying the overall page traffic, the amount of Firefox users with and without the latest Flash version and the click through rate of those without.

The graph shows that about half of the users who accessed that page in the first week had an outdated version of the Adobe Flash player. Between 27% and 40% of these users clicked on the link that lead them to the Adobe page to update their Flash player. This does on the other hand mean that the majority did not click on the link to update Flash which indicates that there might be room for presentation improvements to get more users to click on that link.

Users who want to test their Flash version can head over to the Adobe website to do so.
