Have the latest version of adobe flash player, previous versions uninstalled. It works perfectly well in Internet Explorer, will not work in firefox, as I cannot get it to work at all in Firefox. I'vedownload adobe flash player plug in set up as instructed but when I try to run it I get instructed to close Firefox and try again. Nothing happens when I try again after closing everything but the set up window.

Has any one got any jargon free advice please. Thanks

Download Flash Player installer for Firefox from here : http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_firefox/

IE and Firefox use different Adobe Flash players, you need to install seperately for both.

Try to de-install it, and install it (Browser: Firefox, Safari, Opera) from here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Sometime rebooting your computer helps to make it work :thumbsup:

Are you using any of plugins like AdBlock or NoScript? They may block Adobe Flash in firefox.

In re-reading your first post, did you
First, Uninstall using the Adobe Uninstaller Tool
Then,
1- using Firefox download the adobe flash player plugin
2- close out Firefox completely
3- Run the Flash setup file

If that is unsuccessful, you may have an addon that is causing a conflict; disable all addons and try to install the firefox adobe flash player plugin. Then re-enable your Firefox addons.
