Windows 7: Flash player question

Flash player question

Whenever I try to update the Adobe flash player through Firefox, it says that I need to download an Adobe download manager as a addon. That addon also installs a download manager application

Maybe I'm not looking hard enough around the Adobe flash page-- but where did the standalone download option go? (single .EXE installer, one click, no download managers installed along with it etc.)

I hate that they force that download manager on me also. I always remove it when done.

So the stand alone download option is forever gone? I was hoping that it was just well hidden

The standalones for both IE (ActiveX) and Firefox, etc (plugin) are here at this link right below. They make it almost impossible to find this link, why I've held on to it for a while now.

Standalones at bottom of page -
Adobe - Common Flash Player download and installation issues (Windows)

Edit -
Both new version are now uploaded, finally.

I just went here and it downloaded without the DLM. It is the correct new plugin for Firefox.

That link worked ! Thank you

Whenever I've tried to update flash in the recent past, I went to adobe.com/flash. clicked to get flash, un-ticked the included AV download then clicked download, only for this download manager stuff to demand to be installed

Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player
