Why doesnt my browser install a program?

Question

I am currently using Mozilla Firefox(2.0). Whenever i try to install a program, such as Adobe Flash Player, when I click on the URL for the installation, it goes to a new page and it reads" This object has been blocked." Can you help me fix this problem? Thank you

The message "This object has been blocked." when downloading files is usually caused by a software-based firewall blocking a certain file type You may want to set your firewall to allow this update or temporarily disable your firewall during the update This should allow you to update your browser
