Adobe Flash won't work

First off, this new computer was given to me about a week ago, and I know virtually nothing about or it what already may be installed on it. Also, I'm using the latest version of Firefox.

Whenever I go to Youtube or other such sites, I get the standard message "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player." So I downloaded the Flash player, and the installation was supposedly successful, yet I still get the same message. I downloaded Flash AGAIN later, with of course the same result. I have no idea how to check if Flash actually is even installed. Any ideas?

(Oh, and I definitely do have Javascript turned on.)

Do you have NoScript Firefox add-on installed?

https://addons.mozil...refox/addon/722

If you do it stops Javascript from working unless you allow the site to use it.

Hehe I just fixed this for my cousin. Download the manual installer, unzip it, and run the file. You should then be good to go.

Benadryl.com uses flash, just FYI. That was our test site. lol

EDIT: Argh... this may be just for IE. Try it anyways and see if it works.

No, I definitely don't have that add-on.

Nope, that didn't work. :)

Have you tried a later version of Flash? such as the Flash 10 beta.
