Yes, both browsers actually use two different flash player installations. 
Internet Explorer uses an ActiveX controller for it's flash player add on while 
Firefox uses a flash player plugin. This can be seen in the "Programs and 
Features" screen. 

I would advise you to open your Firefox browser and navigate to: 
get.adobe.com/flash to install. The website will detect your operating system 
and browser to install the correct software for you. You will need to download 
and run an executable.

The following website can help you verify that flash is working and tell you 
which version you have.

Good luck to you,

Subject: [lcfbtech] Question about Flash Player

Hi, Folks,

I run both I.E. 11 and a version of Fire Fox on my desktop computer with 
Windows 7.

I recently updated Flash Player with I.E. 11, but when I attempted to install 
the player with Fire Fox it would not install. Fire fox gives me the message 
that I do not have flash player. Should I be attempting to install a second 
version of Flash Player, or is there some other way to get Flash to run with 
Fire Fox?

Thanks for any help.

Lori C.
