Every time I go to click on Firefox it defaults to this location. My machine won't update adobe or the flash player to the newest version. Why did this start just 2 days ago? I have Firefox clicked not to update. I have gone to the info bar on about:config and made sure it was false. Nothing works.

I don't want to do an upgrade as there are too many complaints about the newer versions of Firefox.

I am tired of trying to download adobe when it won't load on either Firefox or internet explorer. I am tired of it defaulting to Firefox updates. It is not worth my time. I am going to just start using internet explorer where I don't have this problem.
