here we go again, Firefox, Flash 11.0 and plugin messages.
Posted on 2011-10-30
On 2+ sites I get a popup message using Firefox.
Additional plugin required to view the media on this page.
Then Firefox shows a download window, with a "check mark" for 126.96.36.199.
I click to proceed, and then get a message that the program was blocked.
Blocked by who and why?
This was blocked: FP_PL_PFS_installer_32bit.exe.
So, there is a "manual download" button.
The manual option takes me to Adobe dot com.
Where the file is install_flashplayer11x32_mssd_aih.exe.
So, then the download is completed and I now have 5 copies in the download window.
I've been through this process before, the last 3 days, thinking I had the plugin downloaded, but the next day here comes the plugin message.
Since the download by Firefox appears to be completed, why does the plugin popup occur on these websites?
I already have Flash 11.0 on my Vista pc, and it was downloaded by IE 9.0.
