Flash player won’t work in Firefox running Vista

Last week a friend called me and asked if i could help because she needed to do homework that required Adobe Flash to complete.  (Wow, homework sure has changed since i went to college!)  I had her install Firefox and we got things to work that way.  I wanted to watch some Daily Show clips but was being told that i needed to install Adobe Flash Player.  I could download the file and install it but then kept getting the same message.  I finally used the Adobe Flash Player uninstall tool and then reinstalled the player and now things seem to work.

Edit: nevermind. It made YouTube clips work (at some recent point they stopped but i don’t know when) but Comedy Central still wants me to install the player.  Before going to the Adobe Flash version checker brought up nothing but now it shows that i have a player installed.
