    Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Or Higher

    I'm trying to acknowledge that I have read some online forms, but when I press the "Submit" button nothing happens.

    The site's Tech Support says I must have Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or higher installed.

    Ubuntu Software Center reports I have Adobe Flash Plugin Installed. And I *think* I have all four Add-ons installed.

    I go to the Adobe site, and it offers version 11.2.
    I'm able to download and extract the files.

    And then I don't know what to do.

    (I spent over an hour trying to sign and submit these forms on a friend's Windows computer, with no luck. I didn't know about the Adobe requirement, so that may have been the problem.)

    Thanks!

    Don't try manually installing the flash player from adobe's website. Go to the software centre and ensure flashplugin-installer has been installed. This should give you version 11.2.something. You'll automatically get the security fixes.

    Thanks for the prompt response.

    This is what the Ubuntu Software Center reports:



    Thanks!

    You can check the addons manager in Firefox to see the status of any plugins such as Flash. They can also be deactivated from here (or made conditional) if desired.

    From Firefox, Ctrl+Shift+A opens the addons manager. Choose Plugins from the left.
    or use Firefox Menu > Addons

    Consider also that the failure of the Submit Button to work may have nothing to do with Flash. Barking up the wrong tree, perhaps.
