URGENT: I need Flash Player 8 - but 9 is already installed

I come across many sites that apparently do not have their detection scripts updated to recognize Flash Player 9 so the Flash content is not viewable. I am instructed to install Flash Player 8, but cannot download the player anywhere. I believe Flash Player 5 was previously installed, so even if a rollback was possible, it wouldn't solve the problem.

Is there anywhere that I can find a Flash Player 8 download?

you can use FlashSwitcher to switch versions right back to v2 if you're using firefox (http://www.sephiroth.it/firefox/) or if your using OSX try this one (http://www.sephiroth.it/weblog/archives/2006/11/flash_switcher_for_osx.php)

One other thing occurs to me - there's no need for sites to "update" their detection scripts, they'll work with v8 or better. Are you sure you haven't got javaScript turned off? Thats much more likely to cause the problem you're seeing.
