      Why do some versions of Adobe Flash Player require a new DMG on OS X to be downloaded through a web browser? It is an annoyance to users to have to go through downloading a new DMG and installing through this method. Why can this not be an in-place download and install just as the normal delta updates?

       

      In addition, is there no way for Adobe to implement a new update process where the browsers are not required to be shutdown if a person is updating? It would make more sense to put things in place for the user and have these new values put into effect when the browser is finally shutdown. Unless the browser is shutdown, whatever version is already installed and running will continue. Is that some sort of privacy problem for Adobe?
