I've tried to download the flash player several different times and each time i get a connection error message.It downloads fine and when i run the file to start install, it installs up to 5% and then i get the connection error message. I've tried disabling my antivirus software, closing my browser for install and nothing.Can someone please help me? I'm using Firefox.
I had the exact same issue, being on a mac. If you are on a mac and the connection error message occurs, then use this link http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_osx.dmg
It allows you to download it offline, which is what I used.
Hope I was help!
