Re: installing plugins

I went to Ninite, checked the appropriate boxes and ran the installer two or three times, but when I went to the station I was looking at, I wound up in the same mess I described last night. The installer showed Flash as being up to date, but when I go to the site for the station I'm still prompted to install the missing plugin. In the Ninite program I found Flash but not Adobe Flash Player. What am I missing? Is it a compatibility issue with the version of Firefox I'm using at the moment? I went to Desktop but didn't find the player there, then I went to , Start Menu, Run and typed in the name of the Adobe Flash Player, but my entry was rejected. I tried the Search feature in Start, but it didn't find the program on my system. Thanks for any further input.
P.S. Last night when I first tried installing the Adobe Flash upgrade from the Adobe website, the installation was slow and eventually interrupted, after which I got an error message saying the installation failed because the application was already running. Before that I was prompted to close all other Firefox links and then retry, and upon retrying I got that error. Any further help appreciated.

Hi Douglas,
The best way to get around the annoying Adobe installer is to go to:

www.ninite.com

And build yourself an installer for the browser of your choice.
Search for the word "Flash", check the boxes for the ones you want and then
click "Get Installer" and follow the prompts.

I recently experienced a problem updating Adobe Flash Player in order to
listen to a certain station. At some point I was notified of an error in
downloading the upgrade, and when I went back to the station I was alerted
to install the missing plugin, Adobe Flash Player 11.3 something. When I
clicked on the install option, followed by next, there were two unresponsive
(or inaccessible) dialogs: one was the Adobe Flash Player 11.3 Installer and
had two buttons, a blank one and a Q (quit) button. Pressing the blank
button only brought me to the desktop and the installer dialog remained put.
The other dialog was a plugin finder service with a cancel button and
nothing else to choose from. This makes it impossible to install the latest
version of Adobe without sighted help; pressing the blank button in the
first mentioned dialog (Jaws won't tell me what that button does) just
brings up the desktop and nothing changes.
Perhaps my brother could take a look at this with LogMeIn, or someone on the
JFW list can provide feedback on resolving this. I now have the
above-mentioned apps running on my system, so Big Doug please log on anytime
and try to troubleshoot this problem. Thanks, and good night.

I went to the St. Philip's web site and was prompted to install the
missing plugin, but once I tried to select and install I ended up in an
inaccessible Plugin Finder Service Center where I don't have a clue what to
do or what to select. I just find a list of different readme help sections
or sites selling products. Can you please try to log in and take a look?
Thanks.
