I have downloaded flash 12 to my Mac and the adobe websites acknowledge my having done so. My safari preferences are also set as instructed for "rich media content". However, facebook will still not acknowledge my having downloaded flash player 12. Additionally, I can't seem to open it on my computer anywhere despite having both plugins listed as a successful download and the adobe website acknowledging that I have in face, downloaded it. Please Help.
It's NOT an Application you can open. It's a plug-in for your browser, whichever one you use. You can find it at Mac HD/Library/Internet Plug-ins
Sometimes, updating won't replace the plug-in, so it's best to do a "clean install": How to perform a "clean install" of Flash Player in Mac OS X
