Cannot find plug in for Adobe Flash 10.1

by pnkfloyd / October 30, 2010 1:07 AM PDT

I use Firefox. Downloaded the latest release and it keeps telling me I need to download Adobe Flash Player 10.1. When I go to do it, it tells me it can't find any correct plug ins. I am running WIN XP .

Also noticed after the Firefox upgrade the when I go to access the drop down menu on the 'Actions' tab on FlickR in order to see a larger example of a photo, I now have two colored dots that just spool. Did not have this issue before the download.

Direct Downloads Of Flash
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / October 31, 2010 10:06 AM PDT

Direct downloads for the current version of Flash Player:

Flash Player for IE:

Flash Player for Non-IE browser (Opera, Firefox etc):

Clicking on the links above will immediately open the download dialogue window. After installing Firefox, download the version of above for Firefox, then simply run it.

Please note, a new version of Flash will be released again in the first part of November which fixes a few newly found vulnerabilities but till that time, the version at the link above is appropriate..

Hope this helps.
