I have tried multiple times to download flash player. Whenever I close safari or try to go to safari-->preferences-->security-->plug in settings... then there is no "install flash player' that comes up. What am I doing wrong?

Safari's default save-to location is the user's Download directory (~/Users/YourUserID/Downloads), the install file wouldn't be in Safari's Preferences

After installing Flash, if you need to enable it, the setting is now in Safari > Preferences > Websites.  Older versions of Safari have the plug-in setting in Security, but not newer versions.

I can't even download it!

What happens when you attempt to download it.?  Please provide specific details on the issue.  Best way to do this is in providing reproducible steps.  For example:

  1. Launch Safari and navigate to https://get3.adobe.com/flashplayer
  2. Click Install Now button
  3. etc...
  4. etc..

Result.

The installer should download (usually to the Downloads folder) upon clicking Install Now button.

If there's an error, post a screenshot of the error.  For assistance in taking/posting screenshots, see https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7043#jive_content_id_How_do_I_attach_a_screenshot

I have safari 10.11 actually

What mac OS version are you using?  There is no Safari version 10.11 (Safari version history - Wikipedia ).   I suspect you're referring to macOS 10.11

The version of Safari on macOS 10.11 is Safari 11, and it should have a Websites tab in Safari > Preferences. 

If, by chance, you have OS X 10.10, then that version of Safari (10.1) does not have the Websites tab.


Please post the following screenshots:

  • mac OS version:
    • click the Apple icon on the top left of the screen
    • In the menu, select About This Mac
    • An information window will display with the OS version and other information.  Take a screenshot of this window
  • Safari > Preferences window

Thank you.
