Trouble installing Flash player on Firefox

by splintersag / March 13, 2008 9:29 AM PDT

I am having trouble installing flash player on Firefox, on Vista

When I try to install it at, it tells me to click some gold bar at the top. But there is no gold bar.

see pic ---

I'm thinking the problem is that it seems to think I am using Internet Explorer, but I'm not.

see another pic---

What's wrong and how do I download Flash. Thanks in advance guys!

(btw, the problem is not that I'm using Firefox 3 Beta 3. I can't download flash, even in regular Firefox.)

Thank you everybody, I have it fixed. The problem was that in about:config, i had changed the "general.useragent" settings.

I have it fixed, thank you.
