I'm sorry you are having trouble installing Flash Player. Unfortunately, we don't have any control over the popup blockers for various browsers. If you would like a direct download to the players, you can find one at the link below...
What a crock. Sorry, guy, but I am very technical. I know exactly what you
can and what you can not do on a website. I also know that there are very
simple methods for designing with all of the mainstream popup blockers in
So your scripted response may placate the non-technical masses. But those
of us who know better understand exactly what a poor job has been done on
your download site. I can give you 4 methods to fix the site right off the
top of my head! I won't do so because certainly any web developer capable
of creating your site knows just as much as I do about making this stuff
The problem is not lack of technical knowledge. It is more fundamental -
and honestly what many programmers struggle with. Getting into the shoes of
the users. Getting out of geek mode and into usability mode. I mean hey,
it is fun to build all of the gizmos, not so much fun to add basic links.
As far as getting the download goes, I already have it. My point is that I
shouldn't have had to go through multiple steps. One very simple fix is to
just put the direct link onto the final instructions sheet. This is the
route web developers have selected for many other download sites.
So rather than sending me bogus answers, why don't you send my comments to
the people who manage the web development team. That is where the problem
will get fixed.
First, you don't need to be rude to people who are trying to help on this forum.
Second, you are posting in the Flash Player forum, where the Flash Player engineers can help users with Flash Player problems.
