The instructions look good except the addresses should be HTTPS in case browser tries HTTP only. Your download will be at the location set in browser, see options, preferences, settings for "Downloads". See screen image of my browser with arrows pointing to items that I check every time I update. I never download Adobe Flash Player from sites other than Adobe; there are ways to trick people into thinking a fake installer is valid.
I'm trying to get access to an ebook, and the publisher sent me the following directions:
To read the ebook, you will need to have Adobe Flash and Adobe Digital Editions installed on your computer. Flash is available at: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. Digital Editions is available at: http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/#download. (Please note: iPhone, iPod, and iPad readers: You will NOT need Flash. Please visit the download link on your iOS device in Safari. You will be able to open the ebook from there directly, into the Bluefire Reader app.)
While I was able to download Adobe Digital Editions onto my mac computer, I have not been able to download Adobe Flash Player. When I try to download it, the "install Adobe Flash Player" runs, but I can't find the program anywhere on my computer. Has it downloaded?

For security reasons, most modern browsers block the Flash Player plugin by default until you specifically enable it for trusted websites in your browser's advanced settings.
For Firefox on any OS, see Enable Flash Player for Firefox.
For Safari on Mac OS, see Enable Flash Player for Safari.
For Google Chrome, see Enable Flash Player for Chrome.
Now that I messed up your day: The adobe uninstaller & adobe install manager from support are the best if mac is 10.6.8 or greater. The versions used to show how to maintain flash in the offsite links or dated. In case I am wrong this is the version I use:
Disable warn message on first execute is not handled within adobe flash install. And Safari and Chrome are kinda crazy if, like my production machine, needs to hold at 10.6.8 and Chrome is a nag that i should update - it [google] scans all via its manager.
If somebody needs to update pepper flash they have to patch new version in the framework. Not something people do.
I'm going to miss flash --

Flash Player is a browser plugin and only works in the browser. Launch your browser, go to https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html, and click on the 'Check Now' button. The widget will report the OS, browser, and installed Flash Player version.
