Installing Flash Player Plugin on Firefoxwithout having Administrator Access or Premissions
Last updated on Mon, 2011-03-07 14:21. Originally submitted by fabio on2007-02-19 16:32.
The following guide, originally written for Firefox 2, has been used successfully onFirefox 3, Firefox 3.5 and Firefox 3.6. Users of Firefox Portableedition (versions 3, 3.5 and 3.6) also hav e been successful using this guide.
The Windows computers available at my University permits login only by autenticated users(students) who don't have Administrator access and permissions.Installing software on those PC is then not possible.Recently they finally installed Firefox 2 but without the Flash plugins, which is absolutlyuseful/needed.I then tryed to install the Flash Player using the "standard" way (click on the missing plugin linkthen install the plugin..). However without administrator plugins it was not possible to install.Then I started doing some tests trying to install the plugin manually. Now I have it installed andworking perfectly!This is how I managed to install it without administrator permissions:1. Download theXPI archive of the Flash Player Pluginto your hard disk (right click on the download link then "Save link as.."). XPIarchives ar e onlyZIPfilescontainingthefiles used by the plugins. A more updated version of the plugin is also availablehere.2. So you can safely rename the file you just downloaded, called
, into
(you are changing its extension from .xpi to .zip)3. Extract the files in the archive. You can use any program capable of opening
files(WinZip,WinRARor the free and great7-zip). There are also websites which can uncompress archives:wobzip.org.4. Copy the files
is not a real folder. It's an alias. By inserting it in your windowsexplorer address bar, you'll be redirected to the real folder which holds your applications profiles and settings. The location of this folder depends on varioussetting that's why we need the alias and not an absolute path.You can open this folder simply choosing "Start → Run → Type in %APPDATA% →OK".In case you don't have a
folder you can create one and place your filesthere.5. Restart Firefox6. Enjoy your flash websites!Reference:Profile folder onMozillaZine Knowledge Base. Installing Flash in Portable Firefox with no installer at AcidLabs.org Blog.

I just did this on the brand new firefox 4.Use the second link but right click and save as. Unlike what the tutorial says there is only one filethat I needed to transfer over. Also if you cannot access certain websites while at work or schoolor whatever usewww.piemagnet.com. Works like a charm. I did all of this while usingpiemagnet.reply

Flash files for version
Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 2011-03-26 11:33.
In case you have access to a computer where you have admin rights, just install the latest flashversion locally. Then you can find the two files (xpi and dll) in the following folder and you cancopy them to the other computer where you do not have admin rights or to the firefox portable:C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Worked for me with version in case you would not like to download the ddl from "somewhere")reply
