trying to download Adobe Flash 11 but halfway through installation asked to close Firefox?
Trying to download Adobe Flash Player 11. Halfway through installation message says close Firefox. How can I do this as Firefox is my web browser.
Terminate Firefox from the "Processes" tab of the Windows Task Manager not the "Applications" tab. Then select firefox.exc and use the right-click context menu to "End Process" or use the "End Process" button on the selected process.
See item #38 Closing Firefox Properly in
The current Firefox is 7.0.1 you can check for update and later update, both from Help > About
Checking for Flash updates to see if you really are current
After the download,
- bring up the download manager ("Ctrl+J") and start your installs. As soon as the install comes up,
- close Firefox with File > Exit or "Firefox" button > Exit. Give Firefox some time to close and check that it finished via the Windows Task Manager -- if it is still running then terminate it by selecting the use "End Process" button or from context menu.
- proceed with the install
