What should I do? I am so frustrated with this mess.

When I want to see youtube or some other visuals I get this every time

"Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player."

When I try to download it. It doesn't download. It doesn't work when it was downloaded.

It works on Internet Explorer just fine. What is the big problem with this thing? I thought Mozilla was supposed to be awesome.

Not sure where you're downloading from, but try this link:

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downl...ShockwaveFlash

Before doing that, you can try going into add/remove programs (in control panel) and if the flash player is listed in there, uninstall that first.

In FFx, check your Tool/Options/Content, to see if you have 'Block Pop-Up Windows'. If so, either uncheck it (you can restore the check later) or open the 'Exceptions' and allow Adobe as an allowed site.

After you've completed the Flash install, you want to go to noscript.net to install NoScript. NoScript blocks all those little widgets that load on every danged web page you go to. It has a button in the bottom right corner of FFx where you can allow or prevent stuff from loading. I have only a few things I allow to load anytime, others only 'temporarily'. I never allow google to load its little invasive agents. Google no likey.

I said I already tried downloading from that link. It won't work or even download.
It works on my computer for internet explorer. Your thoughts? Is the new Mozilla just not compatible with adobe flash.

I found downloading a reg cleaner really cleaned up my system. I had so many variations on so many programs, that on the advice of a techie here on CDF, I downloaded a regcleaner.

I have Mozilla Firefox and Adobe and they work fine. I would find someone who can walk you through it. You might have an adblock or some other pop up going.

Done!
