Why does Firefox ask me to upgrade flash occasionally when there appears to be no difference between the versions (10.1 r86 to 10.1 r86)? Also why do I have to always re-download the Adobe download manager?

What does say?
For me (Firefox 3.6.9) it's reporting that I have installed and am up-to-date.

Important Note you can get Flash player for Firefox (and other non-IE browsers) without the download manager - you just have to dig around in their tech support area until you find the Manual Installer.


  1. Uninstall Flash
  2. Reinstall using the manual installer
  3. Check the Mozilla plugin check page to make sure it's worked
