    Adobe Flash Player Install Failure
    Please help this new Mac user. I was trying to install from Adobe the Flash Player. Went thru the download and then at the last steps, it failed. I have no idea why. First inclination is to delete what is showing on my download stack in the Dock or what is showing in the Finder Window in my download file (the thing I clicked to start the process on my Mac) but I am so afraid of messing up my Mac, I dont know whether to delete those things and try again or what. Please Help.

    This happened to me during my setup a few days ago. I just tried the installation again and it worked fine the second time!

    Oh, I tried 6-7 times, trying to download from the Adobe website. I did learn how to uninstall tho so hope that was clean and I havent done any damage to my MBP. Anyway, on the Adobe forum there was a thread where someone just had the same problem using the same MBP that I have. Someone from Adobe responded saying the problem was Adobe's and they would help this person with the issue. Since the Adobe employee included their email, I sent them a note asking for help so now I wait. Or I will just forget about it.

    Ok so I just wont have a Flash Player. I called Apple Support they checked out some settings on my machine and said they were all correct and then had me go thru the Adobe Flash Install process while they were on the line and it failed again showing general installation error. They said call adobe since it was not my MBP with the problem. Called Adobe, I could barely understand them and they said there would be a fee for their support, their technical support was not free. Anywhere from $99.95 to $149. I said no thank you and hung up. Very disappointed since I cant have flash on my ipad and One of the reasons I bought a computer.

    A quick workaround in the meantime is to use Chrome which comes with Flash built-in.

    Oh its entirely possible that I MISUNDERSTOOD rather than misread. I thought it should be ok downloading right from the Adobe site tho. But now I'm scared to try this link in your post because it says Java and I unchecked that in my Sys Preference settings because I thought that Java was bad to have. Please advise.

    I was pointing out osxx's link to Java when you said you had a Flash issue.

    Im sorry to be so dense but I overlooked this advice earlier because I have seen some posts somewhere that said Chrome could cause some problems so I thought I didnt want that. I dont remember what kind of problems but IF I can successfully install chrome you mean my flash install problem would be moot? Do I just do a search for a way to get a chrome download method? And then is it ok to have 2 browsers - safari & chrome?

    I've had up to four browsers installed. They are just like any other application in that they don't overlap in any detrimental way.

    Yes, the Flash problem would cease to exist. This doesn't solve the Flash problem for Safari but it does get you going with a browser in which Flash works.

    I'm ready to go with Chrome and quite trying to load Flash, I have been fooling with this Flash issue all day inside and its 80 degrees here in Texas today, need to get out and ride my horse. Ok, so now the real stupid question, how do I download Chrome? Ive never loaded a browser before.

    Ok heres where I am right now. I have Google Chrome loaded as an additional browser. As I understand it, chrome has built in flash if I find a youtube video that needs that. Ok, in my processes today, I have also loaded Firefox and want to get it off, can I just drag to trash or will that leave "stuff" on my mac? If I need to uninstall, how? And THAT, is my last question on this subject. Im tired of it. But thanks soooo much!

    Yes, just drag Firefox to the trash. If you've run it once, it will have created a few configuration files but they won't take up much space.
