comment Google Hangouts chat - No notification occurs for incoming messages
The new version (2015.218.433.2) seems to be working okay for me so far, and the notifications seem to be working okay once again as well; keeping my fingers crossed!

+1. Very interesting! I too had 2015.120.1719.1. I didn't uninstall/reinstall Shockwave, but just skipped straight to uninstalling the Hangouts extension in Chrome and then reinstalling it via google.com/hangsouts > computers, and I'm now on 2015.218.433.2 as well, and the UI is indeed different! I'll report back on whether there's been any difference with IMs working. (Running Windows 8.1.)

comment Google Hangouts chat - No notification occurs for incoming messages
I reinstalled Shockwave. Behavior I'm seeing now is: If the chat window is open but doesn't have the focus, I get a sound notification. If the chat window is closed when a message comes in, the window opens, but no sound notification occurs. I guess I can just keep all of the windows open as much as possible! Anyway, @Bradley, thanks for doing your best to help. I'll award the bounty to you since you're the only one that did so!

If I go to adobe.com/software/flash/about I do see an animation (a bouncing red cube), followed by an ad for Adobe products.

Could this be a Shockwave issue? If I go to that macromedia.com/shockwave/welcome page, I just see a static banner saying "Installation complete", not an "animation" as the line of text near the top of the page says I should see. (I get this same behavior in Chrome, Firefox, and IE11 on my PC.) What am I supposed to see on that page?

Thanks for the suggestion! I've actually already tried running both the browser version of Hangouts (in both Chrome and Firefox) as well as the Apps (Desktop?) version, though.

comment How do you move a row in a Google Document table?
the original question above is (at least as far as I can tell) about Google Documents, not Google Spreadsheets. Is there a way to do what you're suggesting in a non-Spreadsheet document?
