When downloading the update from Adobe I also downloaded the latest uninstaller.
Uninstalled no problem (both the installer and uninstaller looked like they always look like) and then closed FF prior to installing the latest version.

Juist to walk the razor's edge a tad I even downloaded one installer from Filehippo for my LT; again no problems!

Bo, I went through your link from top to bottom and back again, but couldn't spot any links to directly download the installers - all I could see is they take you to the download center where you have to go through unticking the extras.
Maybe I need to visit an optometrist ??
Yeap, I think you need to visit an optometrist. Anyway, here is a picture of
the installers, they are located at about the middle of the page. I dont know
how you miss them. This is the same link that I have been using for a while
but this time they changed the page around, making it harder to figure out
which were the correct installers if you don't want addons. Thats why I said
on my previous post 'Go to "Advanced Troubleshooting"'.

Before installing the new version, I suggest to run the uninstaller for the
old version. You can get it from this link.

Hi Anupam, if you download the installers from the page that I link, you
will not have any kind of trouble, nor you ll get "offered" McCaffe or
Chrome.
I suggest you also use the uninstaller from the page that I also linked.
Keep those links for the future. This time, Adobe made it harder to
figure out which installer were the correct ones to download but I was
able to do so after scratching my head for a little while.

Thanks Sope. I got the links. Work great, and the file names are the same as before, and work as they should.

Thanks Bo, I found the links after a little bit of looking. There are actually two Advanced Troubleshooting headers on that page. The link at the start of the page, for Advanced Troubleshooting won't take you to the right area. You have to scroll above a bit from it, to get to the right one, where the links are given.
Those are the same links that Sope has got saved.

I have now saved the links for future use.

Thank you! I seriously wish they would stop this bundling stuff crap with every download....

I know that direct links are there, but adobe should stop this.

Here, direct links to the Flash installers are not hidden. Nothing
gets bundled.
