Angry Can download, but can't run/install Firefox or Adobe Flash or Acrobat on Mandriva

Hi: I have Mandriva, and I can download progams such as the newest version of Mandriva, the latest version of firefox, the latest version of Flash Player or Acrobat. But when I try to open and run them I can't. It's to the point where YouTube no longer supports my old browser or Flash player, and it's to the point where I can't load MySpace because it tells me I need a new browser, so I download it, but it doesn't do anything.

I'm new to Linux and Mandriva. Help!
