    If you need flash in your browser, use Chrome, Firefox, or some other browser that has it built in and sandboxed. Stay away from downloading flash itself from Adobe or any other site.

    Flash is going bye bye in 2020. So almost all sites are switching to HTML5. If a site still uses Flash, it's time for them to come into the 21st century.

    .. or that site needs to be blacklisted, which is what I've been doing for several years.

    What do you mean by Flash Player being "built in" to Firefox? I have the latest Firefox but have to install Flash as a plugin.

    It sounds like you downloaded a scam installer that wasn't really from Adobe and isn't really flash player. I second the idea of just using Chrome when you need flash and avoid installing it in other browsers.
