Firefox lost it's mind when it comes to upgrading - At least where Flash Player is concerned. What broke?

Up until 2 versions of flash player back, everything worked fine. A new version came in from Adobe, I'd say go ahead and upgrade, it upgraded, I restarted Firefox and everything worked.

Now it takes 3, 4 or more attempts to upgrade Adobe. Firefox thinks I am running LINUX now, when I hardly know how to SPELL "linux". So I change that and download the "correct" version. Then that completes and gets stuck on this screen with NO OBVIOUS EXIT MECHANISM: "Hey buddy! you wanna buy a subscription to BOX LIGHTER AND ONLINE PAINTING (or somesuch). The only apparent choice is to click the BUY button. I have to close the window.

Now I am back at the screen telling me that I have a dangerously outdated version of Flashplayer: mozilla

Check Your Plugins Keeping your plugins up to date helps Firefox run safely and smoothly.

Well, updating the plugins broke more than I even know. Now I get error messages saying it can't install because JAVA is dangerously out of date. Well, it IS NOT. I updated it more than 2 versions of ADUBBY FLUNK PLANER ... sorry ... adobe flash player ... upgrades back. Now Firefox is pretty useless, because what was running JAVA just fine 1-1/2 hours ago will not run b/c JAVA is "out of date". But, oddly, the plugin check and update screen doesn't say a thing about it. Just that jinxed snail player.

I like firefox. I've always used it and chose to use it above MSIE and "chrome". Now, it seems, I have no choice but to use either of the formers.

Oh, yes. I did re-install Firefox, and currently running V.35.0.1.

Thank you, FredMcD... One shot, worked perfectly. Chose the MSI over the EXE installation.

It'll be good getting back to using Firefox ... chrome is rather a pain in the arse...!
