I saw the important warning message thing at McAfee saying that there was a new update for Adobe Flash Player. I went to the link http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ to check the version of my flash player for Firefox on my Vista computer and it was outdated.
However, I couldn't really get the update because something weird was happening and I was wondering if the good people of the McAfee Community would help.
I had NoScript temporarily allow adobe.com. On the http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ page, there was a link called Player Download Center and when I mouse over it the link is http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash. Since I did this before for older versions I clicked on the Player Download Center link, but instead of taking me to the page about download verison 10.3.183.5, I was taken to the Adobe Flash Player page, whose url was at the top of Firefox and the url was http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/. On this page I tried clicking the Get new Flash Player 10.3 at the top and I was taken back to this page, I scrolled down and saw right below Next Steps, there was a Download Flash Player 10.3 now and when I moused over the link was also http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash. But I was still taken to the http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/ page.
Finally, I clicked on the Downloads link at the very top of the page taking me to the url http://www.adobe.com/downloads/. There I clicked the Get Adobe Flash Player on the right hand side and it worked and it took me to the downloading page. But I noticed that the URL was http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ instead of the http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash. Before updating it, I closed Firefox and went back to the http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ page and tried the Player Download Center and it worked, it took me to the right page so I installed it. I tried this on my other Vista computer, whose flash player is also outdated and I didn't run into this problem of getting redirected back to the Adobe Flash Player page. I clicked on the Player Download Center and it worked just fine.
Basically, I was wondering if anyone knows what could have cause this weird redirecting back to the Adobe Flash Player page? Even though I managed to get all the links that where redirecting me to take me to the right page (the downloading page) by doing nothing more than going to the Downloads link and then clicking on the Get Adobe Flash Player on the right.
