I keeping getting a pop up saying that Firefox has prevented the outdated plugin "Adobe Flash" from running and that I should hit a link to update.  Is safe to do?  Should I do this?  Has anyone seen this message before?

Just manually download and install the most current release.

There are two versions...
install_flash_player_ax.exe <- active x for Internet Explorer
install_flash_player.exe <- plugin-in for Firefox & other browsers
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html <- all downloads
