Flash player installer keeps telling me to close Firefox so it can install, and this persists after I do close Firefox
Flash player keeps crashing on NY Times.
I went to Firefox help with plugins, and got the message to update my player from ver 9.x. I clicked update.
The download process went fine, and the installer started. it stopped with the message that I needed to close Firefox. I did and clicked Retry. It persisted with the message that I had to close Firefox.

Thanks very much for responding. In the meantime I went to Adobe's troubleshooting page, and followed the instruction to uninstall the previous version. I did that and noticed that the failed version 10 install was listed, and tried to uninstall that--same problem: close Firefox. So I rebooted Windows, then went to the uninstall page and uninstalled ver 10. That worked fine. Then I installed ver 10 with no problem.
Somehow Firefox was staying open as far as Adobe install/uninstall programs were concerned. And the failed version of 10 was also preventing the install.
I also installed the latest Reader.
Thanks again. I hope all this helps Firefox somehow.
