I have a brand new Windows 8 computer (3 weeks old). While accessing Candy Crush I was prompted to install Flash Player. I use Firefox as my browser. During download I get the error message 'failed to register'. I clicked "Done" anyway. I can access Candy Crush but flash player stops working while downloading the game. I can click "Continue" to access the game anyway and it loads . But this is frustrating to do every time and I am afraid this could lead to problems down the road.
Today during my research I clicked a link to uninstall Flash Player. Then tried reinstalling FB13 but received the same 'failed to register' message. I then went to my Uninstall Programs on the computer and found out I had Flash Player 12! So I am not sure why I was ever prompted to install Flash Player in the first place. I deleted FB12 then tried installing Flash Player 13, again. Every time I reboot after installation, just in case. But again, I get the same 'failed to register' during the download.
Is there something else wrong with my new computer or is there a bug with Flash Player 13 (Firefox) causing my error?
