Today I was trying to test some flash componet in Mozilla, but due to some restrictions on network I was not able to download the Mozilla plugin. I clicked the “Install Missing Plugins” button, followed the wizard, restarted Firefox, and it was still not installed. Annoying!
So here are the steps to install flash plugin manually:
download -

Once you have the file downloaded, rename the file with a .zip extension.

Next copy the following two files to: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins

  • flashplayer.xpt
  • NPSWF32.dll
If you don’t have administrator access to your machine, or you simply want to install for only your account, you can browse to the following path: %APPDATA%\Mozilla (type is Windows Run) and copy these above files in Plugins folder (create if not already exist)

Now to test whether flash plugin was installed , just type 'about:plugins' in firefox's address bar.
