I'm going around in circles in my Firefox browser. When I check for 
plug-in status, I'm advised to update Flash. I go to the
BUT the "Install Now" button at the bottom right directs to www.adobe.com
When that page opens, they list the download as (you got it)
It also doesn't display the Optional extras content, just the title of the box.

And yes, I have enabled cookies for the site. And no, my antivirus 
program doesn't block installing anything. It asks for permission 
when I try to install something.

Found the problem. Ghostery breaks it. They insist on allowing 
beacons in order for the software to install. Another red flag.
All done.

I was successful with IE and have updated that one.

do you fill in the space between here and there? It's yours. Seize your space.
