It's NOT that Facebook doesn't rrecognize Flash Player. It doesn't recognize IE11, and if it can't recognize the browser, it won't recognize the plugins in the browser. Microsoft is aware of the problems with their new browser, but... they're in no hurry to fix it.
Microsoft's recommendation is to use Compatibility View for affected pages, and "pretend" you're using a different browser. Trouble with that is... it's seen limited success at best, and you have to individually enable it for EVERY page that has problems.
I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.
Thank you, that actually did make some sense to me.
Firefox required that I uninstall and re-install flash, so that works. When I got my new computer the chrome installer added malware that made browsing almost impossible so I uninstalled it and am not inclined to re-install. I'll go with firefox when I want to upload photos to facebook until IE gets their act together.
Thanks again for a quick response in terms I cold understand.
