    When i try to download adobe flash player using firefox i click save file, it then says:
    "one download active (few seconds remaining)"
    "one download active (unknown time remaining)"
    then a little box above that comes up and says "download complete"

    I click tools>downloads and its empty! i dont know where it is! can anyone help me?

    (p.s. i did it with IE and that worked perfectly!)

    If you have any AntiVirus software installed, Firefox V3 will invoke it and scan the download before releasing it to you.

    On Tools/Options/Main where did you tell Firefox to save downloads and what is in that location?

    Thanks flavallee on the updated versions. I posted before seeing that there was a update and the site I linked has not yet updated the flash files.

    I'm glad to hear that you got them downloaded and install with IE. :D

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    I just started using Mozilla Firefox 3.0.3 about a week ago for a specific reason, so I still know very little about it. I'm still a die-hard Internet Explorer user.

    If you go into Tools - Options - Main, you can configure how you want the download feature to work and where you want your downloads to be saved.

    The new version was just released yesterday.

    I know but posted before I found out about it and I use firefox so had no trouble getting it but IE guess my setting are to high so the only way I can install it is to get the standalone installer version and now I got it so thanks.
