Posted

I have done EVERYTHING as instructed. Nothing works! Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

All previous versions have been uninstalled. Downloaded via ADOBE DIRECT LINK. No RUN box appears. Nothing happens.

Note that Firefox is a 32 bit application, so you need a 32 bit Flash plugin. You posted with a 32 bit Firefox (WOW64) on 64 bit Windows Vista

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0

You can find the latest Flash player versions for Firefox on this page:

You can also check in the Windows registry that you have the proper registry key(s) that allow Firefox to find the Shockwave Flash plugin.
