User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1 Build ID: 20110928134238 Steps to reproduce: Try to install Flash Player 11: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ Please note, the installer says it comes with 32-bit as well. Actual results: Flash Player 11 was not installed, at all. Updating from 10.2 also results in only 10.2 working. Expected results: Flash Player 11 Installs
A re-note: Try to install the 64-bit version on a 64-bit machine with a 32-bit firefox. Even though the web page says it has 32-bit components in it, it will not install to the 32-Bit firefox.
>Flash Player 11 was not installed, at all It doesn't install or it doesn't appear in Firefox ? The installer is not from Adobe... Did the installer put the npswf32.dll somewhere ?

The installer IS from Adobe, downloads from adobe even. I don't know where the installer put what stuff, because the installer has no log file. The installer exe is also removed the instant you execute it.
I am running Win 7 Pro and I had the same install issue: I uninstalled 10.3 and installed 11 but found Firefox 7 was still using 10.3 (IE 9 was using 11 properly). After determining that the Adobe Flash installer puts the NPSWF32.dll file in the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash directory, I found that there was a "NPSWF32 - Copy.dll". Firefox was using this dll (when I tried to delete it, Windows said it was locked by plugin-container.exe) instead of the newly installed NPSWF32.dll. Closing Firefox and deleting this file resulted in Flash v11 being used as expected.
Also, if you install firefox freshly, and use the Nightly 64-bit Windows Binary build, the 64-bit version of Flash will be installed into Nightly immediately, no need for a workaround.
does it happen using version 10 or newer? does it happen with 32bit build also?
