How come in Mozilla Nightly it claims I need Adobe, and things that need it don't work, yet in Google Chrome claims I do have it and works with Adobe products?
I've been using Google Chrome for as long as I can remember, and have never had problems with Adobe before. All programs and websites, like Pandora, work just fine, and there has never been a trace that I didn't have it installed. Just recently, I've downloaded Mozilla Nightly as my new primary browser, but find that sites that need Adobe, once again like Pandora and the Mozilla website in general, do not work, and when I check my system stuff in Settings (right below plug-ins, accessed from new tab page), it claims I need to update Adobe. How come? I've never had problems before, and once again on any other browser it claims my Adobe is just fine. Also, I use an administrative computer and cannot install Adobe without a password.

For your information (in case you didn't know) you're on a pre-release version of Firefox. There are currently three pre-release channels of Firefox
- Nightly/central (pre-alpha) download at nightly.mozilla.org
- Aurora (alpha) download at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/#aurora
- Firefox beta download at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/#beta
Chrome is bundled with Flash, that's why you don't need to download it. As for Firefox, it doesn't comes pre-installed.
Google, with their millions, is able to pay Adobe for the rights to distribute their own version of Flash. Mozilla doesn't have that much money to spend, and so users have to download and install Flash themselves. It is an annoyance, but it's the best we can do until we develop our own alternative to flash (which is being worked on)
It looks like you have a 64-bit OS so if you installed the Win64 Firefox Nightly then you need 64-bit Pluguns. If you install Win32 Firefox then you need 32-bit Plugins.
Note that Nightly (and Aurora) development channel gets checkins almost everyday do therefore it gets a update each of those days. A random build of Nightly is not meant to be used like a Release as Nightly is meant more for Testers and devs.
If you are Testing Nightly in order to have Win64, the earliest there will be Win64 for Release is Fir fox 37.0 in first phase.
