Using Elements 9.0 on Windows 7 and I use Mozila Firefox. I shut off my anti-virus program and attemped to download Flash Player 11.3 three times. When I click on a video I get the message that I still need to download Flash Player. If I access my programs through the Control Panel, Flash Player 11.3 is listed. What, if anything, am I doing wrong?
You write that you downloaded Flash Player, but did you also install it?
In Programs & Features, does it say Flash Player 11 Plugin?
In Firefox | Tools | Add-ons | Plugins, is Shockwave Flash listed and enabled?
That is rather strange...

I can see these videos fine in Firefox (Waterfox) 13 and Flash Player 11.3.300.262
All I can think of at this stage is to try a clean install as described in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/928315
After the reinstall, can you see the Flash animation at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html ?
