I got adobe flash player installed for Edge. But I dont have it installed for FF. Is it poss to point the path of the flash player for Edge to FF? Or do I have to install it for FF? I dont want to end up installing 2 of the same flash players if I can avoid it.

Flash for edge and flash for firefox are not the same and are not compatible. If you want it in Firefox you will have to install it for Firefox.

Edge has its own version of Flash. IE uses a ActiveX version of Flash. Chromium, Chrome, Opera uses a Pepper or PPAPI version of Flash. Firefox and SeaMonmkey uses the NPAPI version of Flash.

Since you are downloading for Windows make sure you uncheck the extras on download page before downloading.
