Do you really mean the firewall or do you mean to close Firefox: File > Exit Firefox ?

Troubleshoot Flash Player installation for Windows:

Question owner

My question is quite clear. Adobe is asking me to close Firewall - thats all I know.

Anyway Adobe now seems to have downloaded BUT I would still like to know the answer to my question

"How do I turn Firefox off"
then you said
"... Adobe Flashplayer ... is asking me to turn Firewall off."

Clear as mud on a windscreen.

The Adobe Flash installer says to close Firefox, it says nothing about a firewall.

File > Exit or orange Firefox button > Exit - then wait a minute or so before running the Flash installer
