OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1
Browser: Firefox 10.0.2
The last version of Flash Player to work properly with Firefox was 10.3. I'm not quite certain what happened, but I believe the plugin attempted to update to version 11 and failed. Now every time I go to a site with Flash content, Firefox tells me I need to install FP 11 and offers to do it for me. I go through the plugin download, but after it downloads the plugin, the installation fails and it tells me it must be manually installed.
I then go to the Flash website. it detects my browser and gives me the correct download for Firefox and Windows 7 64-bit. I download and run the installer. It runs correctly and Flash Player 11 is fully installed on my computer. Google Chrome, which uses the same installation of Flash as Firefox, works properly with it. But Firefox still refuses to recognize it.
I have doublechecked the list of plugins under Firefox's Addons menu to see if the plugin needed to be manually enabled, and it isn't even listed!
Just today, I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, still with no results.
The only way for me to be able to use Flash right now would be to uninstall 11 and reinstall 10.
