My security settings tell me Adobe Flash Player new download is not a trusted site - Firefox wants me to update the new Flash Player after I downloaded Firefox updates. If it's not trusted - I don't need more problems
After I updated my Firefox, a pop-up told me to update my Adobe Flash Player - it could cause problems if I didn't - my security told me that the download was Not a secure site - if my security is telling me this - I don't feel secure downloading it. What is the actual status of the new download?

If you are getting a warning from your separate security software, you need to contact them and make them aware that there is a problem with their software.
Try the following instructions for updating Adobe Flash. There is a direct download link in the article below, "Updating Flash".
Install/Update Adobe Flash Player for Firefox: your ver. 10.0 r42; current ver. 10.1 r53 (important security update 2010-06-10) Check your version here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ See: Updating Flash -use Firefox to download and SAVE to your hard drive (save to Desktop for easy access) -exit Firefox (File > Exit) -check to see that Firefox is completely closed (Ctrl+Alt+Del, choose Task Manager, click Processes tab, if "firefox.exe" is on the list, right-click "firefox.exe" and choose End process, close the Task Manager window) -double-click on the Adobe Flash installer you just downloaded to install/update Adobe Flash -when the Flash installation is complete, start Firefox, and test the Flash installation here: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15507&sliceId=1
- NOTE: On Vista and Windows 7 you may need to run the plugin installer as Administrator by starting the installer via the right-click context menu if you do not get an UAC prompt to ask for permission to continue (i.e nothing seems to happen). See this: http://vistasupport.mvps.org/run_as_administrator.htm
- NOTE for IE: Firefox and most other browsers use a Plugin. IE uses an ActiveX version of Flash. To install/update the IE ActiveX Adobe Flash Player, same instructions as above, except use IE to download the ActiveX Flash installer.
