Download and install starts automatically? Hmmmm; should not start automatically in Firefox, as Firefox gives only a Save option, not a run option, unless you have installed an extension that adds run to the download window -- that is not very safe. Follow these instructions:

  1. Download and SAVE to your hard drive from the following page. Be sure to choose the correct OS and browser(s). Also, with Windows systems you should update/install two versions -- Active-X (IE only) and the Plugin (Firefox and most other browsers). The page lists the currently supported versions; updates to any other version have ceased and any other version should be considered not safe. Check this page frequently for latest versions -- at least once per month.
  2. When downloads are complete, close all browsers
  3. Click the downloaded files and run the installation(s). Be sure to check the box in the lower left corner that you "agree to the terms..."
  4. Check your installed version at the following with each browser

Please explain in your original question "...it downloads (50%) then starts to install..."

Are you downloading from the Adobe site or from some video site?

I make it a practice to always download from the source, never a third-party site. Third-party sites can become infected to download and install malware.

@TheOldFox

When Adobe updates, you need to download an installer. This file is saving fine. When you run the downloaded file and Adobe installer screen opens. It then downloads the required files from the Adobe site and then installs them.

I think that birdmanmike1 is saying that when they save the file and run the installer, that the Adobe installer itself is only downloading 50% of the files.

@birdmanmike1

Is this what you are talking about?

I don't think that this is a Firefox issue. I think that this is an issue with your computer, but I think that I can still continue to help you.

Try downloading the file and then running it. When the Adobe window opens close Firefox.

You may need to uninstall Flash and reinstall a clean fresh download of a current version from information on the Adobe forums involving other OSes - http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#main-pars_heading_10

Go through Adobe's article about installation problems - http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html

ComputerWhiz:

When using the link that I posted above, the full installer is downloaded and no other files/parts are downloaded at install time.

Your description sounds like a web-installer that may be downloaded with auto update situations. I do not let Adobe (or any other software vendor) auto update anything on my system. I spend a little time everyday researching and searching for possible updates to my installed software.

The full installer window for Adobe Flash looks like the following. Save installer, close browser(s), run installer.

That is the same as the one that I put above.

This is for sure a windows issue, not a Firefox issue.

If you haven't already, try going to the Firefox Plugin Updater and update the Shockwave Flash plugin from here.
