Should I be able to install Flash Player just once in IE and
have it also work in Firefox without reinstalling it? I ask more
for the customer experience on my website than for myself. My
software requires them to run in Firefox and I have a flash banner.
It looks like Flash Player 9,0,47,0 should work with both browsers,
What I found is that although my flash banner displays
properly in IE, it displays a message in Firefox that says you need
to install Flash Player.
Now I particularly get this on one of my test machines that
is a little older - a Pentium III notebook but still running XP
Pro. I noticed it had Flash Player 8,0,22,0 installed. When I try
to install the latest Flash Player on this computer, it indicated
it was installing 9,0,47,0, but when it was done the version was
still 8,0,22,0, and Firefox still displays the message saying I
need to install Flash Player.
Although I would rather spare my customers from having to
make a special install of Flash Player for their Firefox browser, I
tried that too and altho it said it successfully installed version
8,0,22,0 it still didn't work.
