    Flash Download Problems

    Leaf Mold Level 1

      WindowsXP SP3

      Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:6.0.2) Gecko/20110902 SeaMonkey/2.3.3

      (Note well:  Internally, SeaMonkey 2.3.3 is the same as Firefox 6.0.2.  They both use the same Gecko 6.0.2 for rendering Web pages, interfacing with the Internet, downloading, etc.)  They differ only in the user interface (menus, buttons, etc).


      I see two problems when trying to download a new version of Flash Player from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.  . 


      1.  Your Web server is sniffing for my browser.  I select the "Download now" button, and I get the same page all over again.  The navigation is looping.  If I spoof Firefox 6.0.2, however, I do get a download.  This means you are sniffing for "Firefox" when you should be sniffing for "Gecko". 


      2.  While spoofing Firefox, the download gives me install_flashplayer10_chrd_aih.exe, which is not the installer for Flash Player  Instead, it is some kind of helper.  To get the correct installer file, I had to search my archives to find the URI http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_playe r_10.exe


      Both of these problems were previously cited in this forum at http://forums.adobe.com/message/3885371.  Neither problem has been fixed.
