    Was having issues with widevine on v55 so I switched to beta to try out v56 and all appears to be working again/fixed.

    Also the checking for update button is fixed it checks through everything and makes sure they are the up to date version again. Also love the new design of the bar lol just amazing.

    Anyway everything appears to be working like it should on my end (HP 255 G1 2012)

    I found a bug of "Adobe Flash" plugin after upgrading to v56.2. Daily, it stops working and any flash content on web(like the games on Facebook) don't load displaying the message that the plugin stopped working and a restart doesn't make them work. I found a momentary troubleshoot(to uninstall all plugins, restart, install them all, restart and they work), but the bug pops up again next day. I hope it will be fixed with next release.

    @Claudiu Lucian only thing I can think of is that did you make sure flash is always enabled in chrome://plugins and in the advanced settings section?

    it fixed all flash issues for me.

    Also if you didn't know google is slowly stopping flash support in all honesty and making it a manual thing and eventually one day you won't be able to use flash anymore but probably won't be for a few years though in my opinion. They need to give websites time to ditch flash lol but anyway try making sure flash is always on/enabled in both and see if that helps.

    Personally haven't seen any issues on my end with flash in all honesty.

    If that doesn't work then probably try a clean install when v56 comes out or switch to the stable channel to see if it helps?

    I was having issues with widevine on v55 but switching channels seemed to fix the issues for me in all honesty and maybe switching to stable will fix your issues with flash?

    56.3 is the BEST release yet. Netflix works with no plugin-kung-fu, and no more sign-in error when printing. IMO, Neverware is now on equal footing with ChromeOS.

    @Courtney thanks for the advice, I made Flash always allowed to run at chrome://plugins and it appears to have solved the problem. If websites will have time to choose more efficient ways to display animations, games and the browsing experience will be smoother it's for the best.

    @Claudiu Glad it worked out for you ^^ anyway the default player for chrome/chromebooks now is html5 and html5 is slowly replacing flash. Only reason why html5 is slowly being used is because websites would have reconfigure/change/convert everything to html5 and that would take time & resources most websites don't want to use or have the time to, but eventually most websites will have or support html5 in someway or the other.

    Only time I think flash will no longer be supported by google/chrome/chromium is when most websites don't need it anymore and have switched all the animation/games to html5 but for now there is still a good chunk of websites that still use flash and google would lose a lot of users if they couldn't access/run flash anymore.

    Anyway just glad I could be of help ^^

    Hi @mayur,

    I understand you're excited about the possibility but please refrain from posting on multiple threads in a spamming fashion.
