The answer is not so easy to find, is it.
Well, it should be.

In the same position, starting to really p.ss me off.
I am having an issue too. Offline installation file just gives me the last version without current updates that we need. Safari will not allow me to view something so simple as a youtube video until the plugin is updated. Now I'm not only pissed at Adobe, but Apple too. Come on guys, help us already!
Hey folks, the solution has already been found. You can download the complete Flash Player v.16 installer here:
I found it in this thread. Go there and give Snipes a thanks for providing this.
Yes, I have been noticing the same things.
As for Flash, it was being notified of the latest update that started this.
Let us discuss Shockwave for a minute. This installation takes forever, but at least it installs across all your browsers.
As far as Flash, it is not unusual for me to have to individually check and install on each browser, and I use the following browsers: IE, Maxthon, Sea Monkey, and Firefox.
Firefox is becoming a bit of an annoyance when it comes to plug ins, it doesn't even recognize Shockwave as a known plug in, and their latest version wont allow Flash to be installed.
To be fair, perhaps the real problem is the constant updating to both Flash and the browsers. I don't know about Safari, Mozilla updates far too often, and Flash is ridiculous.
There can only be 2 motives to Flash updating as often as it does.
It is either terribly easy to exploit, or they just want to constantly pressure you to install some third party application.
And I'm getting tired of constantly going through that routine.
I'm patiently waiting for the solution here.

Good job for Mac users, I think Windows users are still screwed, but thanks anyway, some people got helped.
Ah, sorry, yeah, just Mac for that one. I have no need to find a Windows installer, but maybe it's out there too? Good luck.
No need to apologize, I'll wait for Adobe to fix Windows, practice my writing skills, and embarrass them in the process.
To think that it could probably all be solved in minutes if they just made the whole installation file available.
Why would they not.
I bet your link is not really authorized, they don't like to have that full installation file out there for some reason.
Here are links to the offline installers:
Firefox and other NPAPI browsers:
You know this problem still exists. You can't even watch a You Tube video without an interruption every few seconds. But I'm sure as soon as I install Flash, it magically disappears.
I hate Adobe and what they represent. They are so pervasive, they don't care.
Dude, do you realize that offline installer took like 10 seconds to download.
Don't you ever waste my time like that again.
What the is wrong with you.
I guess Adobe doesn't like the word F***
