When trying to update Adobe Flash Player, message says no ActionList found.

When I try to view videos on CNN home page, it tels me that the video is optimized for flash player 10, and when I click on the appropriate buttons to download that, it tells me "ActionList not found".

Re: When trying to update Adobe Flash Player, message says no ActionList found.

There are two versions of Flash, one for IE (ActiveX) and another (Plugin) which is used by other browsers, such as Firefox. I don't see the Flash plugin in your list of installed plugins.

1.Download the Flash setup file from here:
Adobe Flash - Plugin version.
Save it to your Desktop.

2. Close Firefox using File > Exit
then check the Task Manager > Processes tab to make sure firefox.exe is closed,
{XP: Ctrl+Alt+Del = Processes tab}

3. Then run the Flash setup file from your Desktop.

(For Vista Users)

Download the latest version http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Save it on desktop and right click on the installer and chose Run as Administrator (Worked for me) Hope it helps!
