The instructions on the Adobe site are out-of-date and apply to older versions of Firefox. Since your Adobe Reader plugin is up-to-date, I assume that you are trying to update Flash, though you did not specify which Adobe product. Us the instructions below.

Install/Update Adobe Flash Player for _: your ver. 10.0 r32; current ver. 10.1 r53 (important security update 2010-06-10) Check your version here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ See: Updating Flash -use Firefox to download and SAVE to your hard drive (save to Desktop for easy access) -exit Firefox (File > Exit) -check to see that Firefox is completely closed (Ctrl+Alt+Del, choose Task Manager, click Processes tab, if "firefox.exe" is on the list, right-click "firefox.exe" and choose End process, close the Task Manager window) -double-click on the Adobe Flash installer you just downloaded to install/update Adobe Flash -when the Flash installation is complete, start Firefox, and test the Flash installation here: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15507&sliceId=1
