Re: Cannot Install Flash Player

Yes, but firefox is a 32 bit program, which means it needs 32 bit plugins. That could be the reason you are having troubles. try installing that link and tell me if it works.

I'm having this problem, too. I have tried using all of the uninstallers, completely uninstalilng and re-installing firefox, rebooting, etc. Then I use the 32bit installer linked to by Tyler, and Firefox still reports a missing plugin when I hit a page with flash content.

First, restart your PC, run the installer again with Firefox closed, Do you still have the issue? If you don't, awesome. If you do, try going into your profile (Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles shows you where it is) and delete the "pluginreg.dat" file. (with firefox closed)

Tyler, thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't help. I have now completely uninstalled Firefox and removed all profiles and data, uninstalled flash, and rebooted. So I now have a clean install of firefox 13.0b1 and and 32 bit flash 11.2.202.233. And I still get prompted to install flash whenever I visit a flash site.

Please type "About:plugins" into your address bar (without quotes) and press enter. copy and paste that info into this thread. And you installed Flash for browsers other than Internet Explorer, not Flash ActiveX Right?
