Have you tried this?

1) First Download and install the latest Adobe Flash Player from here
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
(You dont need any browser installed ,it will install it anyways.)
2) Then go to this folder on your computer
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash
3) copy these two files
NPSWF32.dll
flashplayer.xpt
4) paste them into this folder in Firefox portable
X:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins
5) restart Firefox Portable and go to this page and VIOLA!!! your updated
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
6) uninstall the adobe flash plugin from your computer

It seems that Adobe didn't update the flashplayer-win.xpi file to 10.1, which this installer depended on.

So you should copy the flash 10.1 plugin installed on your computer's hard drive into your Firefox Portable plugin directory. This solution isn't as good as the original, but since it seems that Adobe is not updating the xpi file anymore, it is better than doing it manually every time.

1. Open Notepad
2. Paste the following code into notepad:
@echo off
copy %WINDIR%\System32\Macromed\Flash\flashplayer.xpt App\Firefox\plugins /Y
copy %WINDIR%\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll App\Firefox\plugins /Y

3. Click File and Save, browse to [your usb key]\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable (or wherever you have Firefox Portable installed), then under filename type "update_flash.bat" (with quotes)

4. Make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed on the local computer. Download and install it if necessary.

5. Browse to [your usb key]\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable (or wherever you have Firefox Portable installed) and double click on update_flash

6. Open Firefox Portable and go to
mozilla.com/plugincheck to check your Flash Player version.

My hope is that this continues to work with future versions, so that when you update Flash Player on your computer, you can just run this batch file to update the Flash Player in Firefox Portable.

I have tried so many different methods and researched numerous forums.But your approach was the simplest way I found.It would take a monkey to mess it up.I'm going to keep that batch file on my USB drive in the firefox portable folder.
