Can't Install Flash Player

I can't seem to install Flash Player and I've been having this issue for quite some time.

Every time I open the Flash Player installer it pops-up a blank window titled 'Adobe Download Manager'. I've left it for like 10-20 minutes and it does nothing.

When I close it out it opens up an Internet Explorer page (Even though my default is Firefox) to: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

I've tried running the installer as Admin but I get the same results.

 

The website from which I am getting the installer from is: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

 

I am running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64-bit with Firefox 53.0.3 (32-bit).

I do have NoScript but it is the actual installer that I'm having trouble with, not the website itself.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Firstly, download and run the adobe flash uninstaller. Reboot. Download and install the offline full download here, bottom of the page. I have always had issues doing an install using the online download.
