To resolve your problem, download flash for Firefox, but does not install, then click on Firefox, select Properties. click the Compatibility tab. select Run program in Windows XP mode compaction. Then click Apply. Click Close button. Not exactly the same for the Flash Player file you just downloaded. Then click on the right of the flash player installed and select Run as administrator. Pass the Firefox shortcut and right click and select Open file location. Click the file and look for the manager and run, if there then click and run direfox, if not select Open FILE location. then right click and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. NOW GO TO YOUR FAVORITE Flash Site, such as youtube.com, etc.

It depends on what browser you will need the adobe Flash player plug-in. Firefox has its own link in Mozilla plug-in page to be used. Need to be an administrator to allow some downloads and installations. Install a browser will not always work for all browsers. IE/Maxthon use the same path to flash player. Firefox has it own add on.

Re: Adobe flash Player Installation Error

If you previously installed a newer version of Flash Player for Firefox, you can avoid installing an earlier version. For example, if you installed Flash Player 9,0,115,0, and tried to install version 9,0,47,0 the installation would fail. To resolve this problem, download the uninstaller for Flash Player from "How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control.
1. Click Start> Run.
2. Type cmd in the Open box and press Enter.
3. In the command window, type the following:
Code:
uninstall_flash_player.exe /clean
Note: uninstall_flash_player.exe file should be stored in the same directory as the command window is in (eg C: \).
