Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.

Flash Player Version: 25.0.0.171

There is no "active x" plugin listed available for Firefox. If I use Chrome, everything works as it should. If I reboot into Linux and run Firefox, everything works as it should. Keep in mind this is Win XP,.... the last and most advanced version.
