Unable to install adobe flash player/firefox/

hours of work alone and with amazon support and still unsucessful at installing adobe flash player. Message says it has been successfully installed, but every t ry at using amazon prime's streaming video gets message it is not installed.
Read that it cannot be straightforwardly installed on Windows 7 operating system when firefox is the browser.
I hope someone can provide me with clear, straightford ward directions about how to do this. Think of telling your grandmother how: mini steps, where to look for the icons or directions you are talking about. single click or double....
Trust me, I worked with an Amazonll technician for over one hour, tried to install aat least 20 times and failed (remember it "tells me" it has been installed, but it ain't working)
So, what are the secrets?
More thanks than you can possibly imagine from one frustrated firefox user.

There are two different versions of Flash, the '''''ActiveX''''' version for IE and the '''Plugin''' version used by most other browsers.
1.Download the Flash Plugin version setup file from here: <br />
[http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe Adobe Flash - Plugin version]. <br />
Save it to your Desktop.<br />
2. Close Firefox using File > Exit <br />
then check the Task Manager > Processes tab to make sure '''firefox.exe''' is closed, <br />
{XP: Ctrl+Alt+Del, Vista: Shift+Ctrl+ESC = Processes tab}
3. Then run the Flash setup file from your Desktop.
4. Start Firefox and test your installation here: https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
* On Vista and Windows 7 you may need to run the plugin installer as Administrator by starting the installer via the right-click context menu if you do not get an UAC prompt to ask for permission to continue (i.e nothing seems to happen). <br />
See this: <br />

    Unable to install Adobe Flash Player iniMAC with OS X 10.7.2 Lion. Any suggestions?

    I have administrative prviledges.
    I obtained the latest version from the Adobe website.
    When I double click on the .dmg file I receive a message that I need to close open browsers which I do.
    Then I get a message stating that Adobe will be installed when I reopen browers.
    Finally when I check the Applications folder I find a file titled: Install Adobe Flash Player.
    This same application is shown in the dock.
    When I click in the file in either the Applications folder or the dock, the complete installation process starts again.
    Any suggestions?

    I only use FireFox and rarely IE.

    Open your browser, IE or Firefox presumably, (or both, other) go to tools/add ons and disable or unistall all of your add ons. Go to tools/clear recent hist, all caches/check all/everything. Go to control panel/programs and features, uninstall all flash players listed, then go to and run disk cleanup start/all progs/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup, check all, delete, then go back to Adobe site in default browser and try download again.

  • Trying to instal adobe flash player & firefox says theres missing plugins but when I try to install them it says no suitable plugins found so I can't install AFP

    I've been having problems with my internet timing out when I try to access pages & firefox says I may have an old version of adobe flash player which is unstable so I've been trying to install a new version. Firefox then says theres missing plugins but when I click on the install missing plugins button it says no suitable plugins were found so I don't know how to get it to install AFP
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == everytime I try to install Adobe Flash Player

    Try this simple fix... I just got it to work...
    First visit [http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html] download and run the flash player uninstaller.
    After that I simply ran the standalone flash player installer to be found here... [http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe]
    This fix doesn't solve the auto-update issue in Firefox, but at least your Flash will hopefully work again in Firefox until a more permanent fix is made available from Mozilla...

  • Unable to install Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX -- Error 1722

    Hi,
    I am unable to install Flash Player 11.5.502.149 on Windows 8.  The error reported is:
    Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action NewCustomAction1, location: C:\Users\Nick\AppData\Local\Temp\InstallAX_11_5_502_146.exe, command: -install -msi
    We have tried running uninstall_flash_player.exe to try and clean things up but this still fails.  Is there a known problem with installing Flash player ActiveX on Windows 8?  Flash player Plugin works fine just the ActiveX version which does not.
    Thanks,
      Nick

    Flash Player on IE10 for Windows 8 is delivered by Microsoft; use Windows Update to obtain the latest Flash Player version.
