I reset my apple ID password here on the website, but my computer isn't recognizing my new password. what should I do? I just need to update my adobe flash player but it keeps asking me for my password but won't take my new password I just updated.

"If you've forgotten the Apple ID password how did you log in to make the last post?"
Exactly! The password I used to log on here and write my post I figured was the same Apple ID password I would use to reset my computer login password. But my computer isn't recognizing it as the correct password so it wont let me update my login password. I have 2 user accounts on my computer.
As far as the link you provided, I already looked to that for help earlier. It states:
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Users & Groups, click the lock to unlock it, then provide an administrator name and password. Select a user, then click Reset Password.
I did these steps, but I don't remember my admin password. The question is: How do I reset my admin password so I can reset my log in password.
Is my admin password the same password I use to log onto this website to post questions? If so, like I said previously, I already reset that password and my computer isnt recognizing it.

  • I have a updated version of Adobe Flash player and Fixfire keeps saying I don't. Fixfire won't let me play games on facebook so I have to use internet exployer!

    Is there new fixes that I am not seeing? Is this an issue with Foxfire or Facebook?

    There is a way to manually turn off the new protected mode of Flash 11.3, if you do not want to try an earlier version. In this support article from Adobe it's under the heading "Last Resort": [http://forums.adobe.com/message/4468493 Adobe Forums: How do I troubleshoot Flash Player's protected mode for Firefox?]

  • I can't download Adobe flash player, and it keeps telling me to. Is there anything else to use besides Adobe flash player.

    I can't download Adobe flash player, and it keeps telling me to, especially to watch videos, is there anything else to use besides Adobe flash player?

    You would download Flash from here http://www.adobe.com/go/EN_US-H-GET-FLASH however if your running an old version of Mac OS X say 10.5.8 or earlier then you cannot run the current version of Flash which is 11.3
    Remember you not only have to download Flash but you have to run the installer.
    Some websites that use Flash might tell your computer the site needs a specific minimum version of Flash and as above if your running too old a version of Mac OS X then you will not be able to run a new enough version of Flash.

    Try deleting Flash cookies.

  • I can't play my games on Facebook.Adobe Flash player plugin Crashed keeps coming up.I have updated adobe,did not help.

    I cant play my games (FarmVille FrontierVille) On Facebook,Adobe Flash player plugin crashed keeps coming up.I have updated to the newest file.No good.
    == URL of affected sites ==
    http://Facebook.com

    I am having this same problem. Before the updates, the Adobe Flash player NEVER crashed in Firefox (it did in Google Chrome all the time) and now it's crashing in all my favorite games....Farmville, Frontierville, Yoville, and Treasure Isle. It doesn't seem to be effecting the less-detailed Zynga games, such as Mafia Wars or Vampire Wars; and I can go into more detailed games that aren't Zynga and they seem to work fine too. I am not 100% sure what exactly the problem is, or who is causing it because I had a Firefox update, and then an Adobe update to the 10.1 beta. So I'm not sure if it's one or the other, or both of them put together.
    I have uninstalled/reinstalled the flash player so many times my mind is numb, and even tried to find the one I had prior to this new 10.1 and nothing has worked. I even did what that link Chris posted to do, and I thought it had worked at first...I actually got to go into my Farmville and Treasure Isle for a little bit, then it turned around and crashed again.
    This is literally driving me crazy trying to figure it all out.....and it upsets me that everything was fine one day, then after some updates, everything is messed up. And it's just my luck that it effected some of the games I like to play the most.

  • I am trying to download Adobe Flash player and it is asking me to close Mozilla Firefox, how do I do this?

    I am trying to download Adobe Flash Player and it is asking me to close Mozilla Firefox before it will download. How do I do this?

    Save the Flash installer to the desktop and close Firefox via File > Exit or Firefox > Exit.
    Then run the Flash installer with a double lick on that desktop icon.<br />
    You may need to use "Run as Administrator" via the right-click context menu of that file.

  • Help! I am in a site that keeps telling me that I must install Adobe Flash Player before it will allow me to go further but my computer says that it is installed. What do I do?

    What is wrong with my computer or is it the program site that I am in? It keeps telling me that I must install Adobe Flash Player but Adobe says it is installed and up dates do not apply. Help because I cannot go further on the site that I am on and it is a secure site that I have used many times in the past.

    What browser are you using? So you have a website pulled up and it is a full screen flash player trying to play or is it a area of the page with a player claiming on the player to install flash?
    Check out this link:  Flash Player Help
    1. Test your Flash Player for versions to make sure nothing happened with that link. If Adobe's Flash Player test through this link says your player is working and up to date then,,,
    2. Check your add-ons or extensions, depending on the browser for what they are called. Make sure Flash Player extensions are enabled. That allows it to play within a webpage.
    3. Check your Flash Player settings itself. There are settings where you restrict, approve, and so on in different ways. The link I shared with help guide you.
    4. Check parental settings. My son plays on this parental control software that always restricts the Flash Player with his games, or videos on Disney, Nick, and other channel websites.
    5.I used to have a computer that claimed this all the time. It drove me crazy. I found out for that computer that it did not like an update so I uninstalled and reinstalled flash player. I made sure the Adobe page showing the Flash Player was reinstalled correctly came up, then closed all my browser pages, then reopened to make sure not permission spot popped up to ok for future use.
    Let me know if this helps. If not, share your computer and browser type.

    Hello,
    Welcome to Adobe Forums.
    Do you have a MAC or Windows ?
    For Windows, you can launch Windows Task Manager and go to Processes Tab, kill "Firefox.exe"
    For MAC, you can launch Activity Monitor and Force Quit "Firefox"
    Thanks,
