Ah...that was a huge fail!  See, the problem is that Adobe killed all the installers.  You can download the file, but you cannot install it.
I'm going back to the firefox data file I found....will keep you posted.

Ugh, I had to disable Real Player on my Chrome, because the Flash downloader thing was bugging out in the play screen on all of my videos.

Real Player strikes another.

Joc, in case haven't tried it yet, try SlimBrowser.

It looks a lot like good/bad ol' IE, but it's faster.

I have used it for day now, and I like it.

Yes, I know you want your FF fixed, but what you really want is access to the internet without much fuss, right?

OK, I have tried "SlimBrowser" for a long time now, and it sucks.

I have an AOL email account, and when I login, it tells me like 5+ times I am logged out. When I use FF or IE, no problems at all.

It is getting slower and slower, (UM) pages sometimes load in like 25 seconds, and when I finally lose patience, I try FF, and the site loads in less than a couple of seconds.

I know the problem has been solved but I was a Firefox user for the longest time and then it seemed to get buggy and I got sick of it arms started using Chrome with adblock.very stable and fast for me.
