Flash Player requires all applications that use it to be closed/terminated in order to install or uninstall Flash Player.  On OS X, simply closing the application window does not terminate/quit the application.  There are a few ways to close the application.  These instructions will refer to Safari, but they can be used for other browser/applications as well:


Method 1:

  • Quit Safari app from the Dock icon:
    • Mouse over the Safari icon in the Dock
    • Press the Control key and left-mouse click at the same time
    • A menu will display. Click Quit to terminate the application.

Method 2:

  • Use Activity Monitor to terminate Safari:
    • Launch Activity Monitor from /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor
    • Ensure 'All Processes' are being listed (menu in the upper right)
    • Find and select Safari
    • Click the Quit Process button (upper left)
