The Plugin Checker leads Windows users wanting to Upgrade Flash to a Page that unnecessarily asks them to download pointless and confusing Flash Installer Extensions. 

Can we change the link on the Plugin Check Page for Windows users so it goes directly to the other browsers page?

The new link is this one: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/thankyou/?installer=Flash_Player_10_for_Windows_-_Other_Browsers

I'm not sure skipping to that page is the best idea, since that skips over Adobe's download process to an unofficial URL.  Might seem pointless and confusing, but I think it's the way they want it.  If / when we give vendors access to edit their own plugin definitions, Adobe would probably change it back anyway.

Don't want to skip over Adobe's download process, closing wontfix at least for now.
