Adobe Flash Installer

Apparently Adobe doesn't test the flash installation for browsers on the most recent version of OS-X. It's been a habit of theirs over the last few years so if you're running OS-X 10.9.2 you can download the installe, but don't run the installer until you reboot and then do the installation before you open any browser.

This is because if you have any browser open or did have a browser open but closed it, the installer will stall about 50-51% showing the browser(s) which are supposedly open and then instructs you to close them and retry, but the retry repeats the same thing.

Over and over, it doesn't matter, until you reboot and run the installation before opening any browers. Adobe did this with all versions of 10.8 and have with all version so far of 10.9.  It makes you wonder who's in control at Adobe anymore as their software is always one version behind OS-X.

I like Adobe Creative Suite applications, but I get tired of the problems I have after upgrading OS-X and then find they know about the problems but haven't fixed them to release an update. This sucks for the subscription people are paying.

Anyway, it's not about Adobe this time, just the flash installation under OS-X 10.9.2.
