Firefox Flash Problem?

Postby Gort on Sun Nov 09, 2008 9:59 am

Hi All

I am trying to figure out what to do about flash not working in firefox on some sites. Actually, I am not even sure that it is flash. If I go to Google Finance:

http://finance.google.com

and I try the plot tool, I don't get a plot displayed -- it is simply blank. However, when I use Epiphany, it all works perfectly. Is there some preference setting for me to look at in firefox?

Thanks
Kev

Ok, I don't quite understand what happened but I noticed the adobe-flashplugin was not installed but flashplugin-nonfree was. I installed adobe-flashplugin and I think flashplugin-nonfree was automatically removed because it is no longer installed. Anyways, the flash tool on Google finance now works. I have no idea why the site worked with Epiphany and not Firefox.

Thanks
Kev

For whatever it is worth -- the same thing happened to me. Same Fix. Just went into Synaptic and installed adobe-flashplugin and it removed the free version.

Thanks much.
