Flash Player Plugin won't uninstall from firefox at all ! I tried the download uninstaller and it says it successfully uninstalled it. But when I go to look in the plugin section in firefox it shows it's still there. and firefox had me updated it so now theres two version of flash player plugin ! you guys really need to redo firefox from scratch.. cause this browser really has loads of bugs and errors for small plugins like flash player to screw up from. and this happened more then once to me in the past few months. your people have firefox set to block a version of flash player and then we can't uninstall it ! cause your browser program has errors. instead of blocking the flash player bad version just have us update it and uninstall it . so there won't be any more uninstall errors. if this keeps up with firefox having all these problems I really can't wait till a newer browser comes along and boots firefox off the market for good. and I am glad that firefox is free, cause I really would of hated to spend money on something so crappy. and crashes that firefox does some times is pathetic ! and it freezes up too. and by the way I also tried to uninstall firefox in safe mode and re-install it after rebooting the pc. and every thing was back on firefox even my favorites and "YES" the Flash Player Plugin which was supposed to been uninstalled already. you guys should have so when we do uninstall of firefox it uninstalled all folders and registry as well of firefox. so a fresh clean install of firefox can be done. I even deleted in the registry of Flash Player Plugin ! but it still shows up in firefox plugin section.

cause of firefox's errors and stuff I downloaded cyberfox which works better then your new version.

its the only way I could be able to post my question on the board here, cause firefox version froze up on me cause your Flash Player Plugin Error. so like I said if I was you firefox programers I would start the entire program from scratch ! and watch your coding errors too. cause thats were its all coming from.

The Refresh feature (called "Reset" in older Firefox versions) can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.

Note: When you use this feature, you will lose any extensions, toolbar customizations, and some preferences. See the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article for more information.

To Refresh Firefox:

  1. Open the Troubleshooting Information page using one of these methods:
    • Click the menu button New Fx Menu, click help Help-29 and select Troubleshooting Information. A new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.
    • If you're unable to access the Help menu, type about:support in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting Information page.
  2. At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says "Refresh Firefox" ("Reset Firefox" in older Firefox versions). Click on it.
  3. Firefox will close. After the refresh process is completed, Firefox will show a window with the information that is imported.
  4. Click Finish and Firefox will reopen.

The "reset" above will not clear out plugins.

Refresh Firefox {web link} is a LAST RESORT ! !

Flash: Grab the uninstaller from here: Uninstall Flash Player | Windows Uninstall Flash Player | Mac

Then reinstall the latest version.

Flash Player Version
Note: Windows users must download the “Internet Explorer” and “Plugin-based browsers” installers.
