    Flash is buggy and vulnerable... and some sites and some platforms are dropping support. My recommendation would be to install and run Google Chrome browser when you need Flash, as it has it built in, and Chrome handles all to updates/issues for you.

    I use either Safari or Firefox for most of my browsing, but for sites that I want to access that still require Flash, I use Chrome.

    I use Flash in Safari with no issues. I do make sure I update Flash regularly to deal with the problems noted above. I also though use a "flash block" extension on all browsers so that video never plays unless I specifically click on it to do so.
    I went that route for a while, but Flash is such a PITA to keep up with. Life (for me) is better without Flash. Obviously, YMMV.
