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 http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ say?
For me (Firefox 3.6.9) it's reporting that I have 10.1.82.76 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.

Recommendation:

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