Whenever I go to a Flash website, it doesn't work, and all I get is the quicktime symbol with a question mark inside. I've had this problem before, and i fixed it by going into the firefox profile manager and creating a new profile, but that doesn't seem to be working anymore.
I'm using the firefox browser by the way and I don't want to go back to IE, please help.

Hello attackedbybirds...

Download the Flash Plugin HERE, Close Firefox completely (Click File and select Exit) and run the installation. In the dialog window that appears, click on the "Other browser"... button. There you must specify the path to the plugin folder for Firefox...Firefox defaults to C:Program Files\Mozilla Firefox. In that folder, there's a sub-folder called "plugins". Select that folder and click "Select", then click "Install".

Reboot your machine and see if the Flash plugin works again.

It still didn't work. When I download the installer and run it, there is no dialog box. There is just a percent bar in a box, then the box dissapears and then there is nothing.
