Windows 10

Fire Fox 59.0.2

Adobe Flash

I got the above message, went to and downloaded the latest version. Did not work. Unistalled and reinstalled Flash and still did not work.

Flash Player Help site verifies above versions for Fire Fox and Adobe Flash.

It does work in IE.

Hi, where are you getting these messages from ? Web sites, pop-ups, drop-downs, there is malware that can do that also and mimic a Firefox Page.

Please scan with : , install as 1 x only &

When you uninstalled did you use the Flash Uninstaller ? as this is the best way to remove all things that can get left behind. Install from here : Flash Player Version: Current Version Step 1: Select Operating System Step 2: Select A Version (Firefox, . . . .) Note: Other software is offered in the download. <Windows Only>

So ya, think it is Malware you have onboard.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Did you download the NPAPI version for Firefox?

You can download the latest Flash player plugin for Firefox on this page.

What version is listed in "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins ?

You can try to open the about:plugins page via the location/address bar to refresh the plugin registry.

Hi, fyi : Flash for IE and Edge is different than what Firefox uses. Flash must never be downloaded from Adobe for Windows 10, Win10 gets it's Flash updates through Ms Updates only.
