Adobe Flash lost the connection @ 30%. Mac installation fails.

I'm seeing this anywhere in the forums without anyone find a solution. I tried everything suggested in Safari or Firefox, including a clean install 3 times! Even after uninstalling and deleting the files flash in the library, when I try to download and install it immediately starts at 30% and then I get the error message "the connection interruption. Trying to connect... "it hangs a little bit and then I get"the connection has failed. Could not complete the installation. "I go to their link for assistance when the installation fails but the link which they suggest to download directly from the final step is"not FOUND ". See here: Installation problems | Flash Player | Mac

This same link appears in several forums for a solution. I don't know what else to do. I write this option to add many others with the same question in the hope that Adobe will solve this problem! I'm on a MAC OS 10.9.5. Never had this problem before with flash updates!

Solution found on another thread. Download the installer here offline: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player_osx. dmg

I downloaded and was able to install Flash correctly. Make sure you do a clean just to be safe installation.

    2. How can I determine if I need to update Adobe Flash Player

    There are several different methods to check which version is installed, two of them are:

    Option 1:

    • Go to System Preferences > Flash Player > Updates tab.  There are 2 variants of Flash Player on Mac, NPAPI for Safari and Firefox and PPAPI for opera and Chrome browsers, and both appear in the tab "Updates".
    • If Flash Player is installed the version installed is listed here.  If there is a version that is listed, click the check now button and Flash Player will check for an update.  If an update is available, a notification dialog box appears.
    • If there is not a version listed, Flash Player is not installed.  Click Install now to start the browser to the download page.  Download and install Flash Player.

    Option 2:

    • Launch the browser and go to https://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about.

      • If Flash Player is not installed, a "plugin missing" message appears when the Flash content should display.

  • Is Adobe Flash Player background Updater for Mac still available?

    Hello, this is Adobe Flash Player background Updater for Mac available again?  We are terribly need this in our laboratories.

    Yes, the background update should work on Mac.  I certainly see Akamai traffic indicates that the update of background on Mac is picking up installers.

    Install the latest betaand be sure to select always allow Adobe to install the updates.

    Also, you generally won't see an update until the browser restarts, because the plug-in running is still in memory.  If you run into this in an environment of automation, you regularly want to relaunch the browser.

    If you're still not updated, I would like to do a complete uninstall and reinstall everything first.  If you're still stuck, let me know and I'll help you troubleshoot it with you.

  • You Tube is not playing video on Firefox with Adobe Flash after the last update

    You Tube and other sites do not play video on Firefox with Adobe Flash after the last update for both. Adobe Flash works on other sites but not You tube and sites that can have embedded videos from You Tube, I'm not sure.

    Adobe Flash not crushed and no error message is visible. All that shows is a black screen for Flash video. Make a right click of the screen shows only a non-interactive 'a film has not loaded' and the clickable link to the home page of Adobe.

    I spent an hour trying things as suggested for past problems similar to this, but none helped.

    I sent sad face, letting you know what I think of the last update for this reason which explains pretty much the same thing, as I have said here.

    I have no other info but if I had a form any entry and queries you I might be able to provide more.

        I think the Flash 12.xx is a phantom. I can't find it on my comp. Only 13.xx shows anywhere but on the Pugins page in Firefox.

    Weird. I have no idea why it does that. Your list of details of the system shows that 13.0.r0 Flash.

       About the .Js I cannot find a User.JS in the profile folder but ther is a user.bk and other files that have.json. Should I do anything with these? 

    If you don't, that's okay. Leave all of the files.

    Does disabling HA in Flash and Firefox work better for you now or even not playing it?

    Make sure your firewall is not something Firefox blocks.

    This happens in other browsers as well?

    The site appears your version of Flash player and your operating system?

  • after update to adobe flash and restart firefox for mac, as requested, cannot restore the previous session

    using macbook pro with os 10.7.5, was recommended to update adobe flash in firefox (22.0). did, which required closing and restarting firefox during the flash update. When you're done, firefox will automatically open to the adobe flash window and restore previous session was grayed out. can not know how to find and restore the tabs that I had used. responses and related issues is not a solution. my settings are all normal and do not seem to report any with the problem. on the contrary, it seems to be the closing and reopening of firefox associated with the flash update that nuked all memory of my last session. is there a solution?

    I found my own solution to my problem! first of all, don't QUIT FIREFOX - to ensure this unwanted session does not become "last session". Instead, open a new window (command-N). in my case, he opened my usual default URL and, while in this window (whether before or after the closing of the first window browser that opened automatically after the update of adobe flash), the option 'restore previous session' in the menu historical reappeared! clicked on it and, therefore, the things everything worked normally.

  • I have already updated Adobe Flash to the latest version, why Firefox may not detect?

    Through a company rep IT, he helped to update my Adobe Flash Player already as well as the installation of Firefox 3.6

    Now, why the firefox claims "You must update your Adobe Flash Player to view this video" when the Flash Player has been already updated to the latest (i.e. try to watch videos of youtube for testing).

    There are two different versions of Flash, the ActiveX version that is used by Internet Explorer and the version of the Plugin that use most of the other browsers, including Firefox. If both are installed, two Adobe Flash versions should appear in Add / Remove programs in Control Panel.

    1. download the file of configuration Flash from here:

    Adobe Flash - Plugin version.

    Save it to your desktop.

    2. close Firefox using file > exit

    Then check the Task Manager > processes tab to make sure that firefox.exe is closed.

    {XP: Ctrl + Alt + Delete, Vista: Shift + Ctrl + ESC process tab =}

    3. then run the Flash configuration from your desktop file.

    • On Vista and Windows 7, you may need to run the installer of plugin as administrator by starting the installation program via the context menu if you do not get a UAC prompt for permission to continue (that is to say that nothing seems to be happening).

  • Adobe Flash shows the correct version, but FF 34.0 claims that Flash needs update

    Firefox does not seem aware of the version of Adobe Flash, it runs under the Plug-Ins. The current version of Flash is NPAPI 16.0.0.296, and that the version is displayed by 34,0 FF. Yet, FF34.0 flags this condition with an error message "Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable and need to be updated"

    This error has been reported perhaps a year ago, but I have not find the previous reference, nor its resolution (if any).

    In fact, the latest version of Flash 16.0 security update was 16.0.0. 305 since 5 Feb.

  • When you try to update Adobe Flash Player, the message says no found ActionList.

    When I try to watch videos on the CNN homepage, it tells me that the video is optimized for flash player 10, and when I click on the appropriate buttons to download, it tells me "not found ActionList.

    There are two versions of Flash, one for IE (ActiveX) and another (Plugin) that is used by other browsers, like Firefox. I don't see the Flash plugin in your list of installed plugins.

    1. download the file of configuration Flash from here:

    Adobe Flash - Plugin version.

    Save it to your desktop.

    2. close Firefox using file > exit

    Then check the Task Manager > processes tab to make sure that firefox.exe is closed.

    {XP: Ctrl + Alt + Delete, processes tab =}

    3. then run the Flash configuration from your desktop file.
