hi try these commands in terminal in root may help
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mjblenner/ppa-hal

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install hal

Once you restart your browser, 4oD should work, enjoy!

ok try this cut and paste the commands

I have Linuxmint 17.1 x64 installed

First
Open a terminal to add this ppa and install HAL.
Type each line and press enter at the end of each line.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mjblenner/ppa-hal

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install hal

When HAL is installed type each line of the following and press enter at end of each line.

cd ~/.adobe/Flash_Player

rm -rf NativeCache AssetCache APSPrivateData2

if that does not work after reboot

install

in terminal type

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

As an addition to the information posted by catfish12 (installing Hal worked for me with Firefox) I'd just like to point out the, probably obvious, detail that 4oD won't work if you have any ad-blocking extensions enabled while on the site. You probably have already ruled this out, but, better that you wasted a few seconds reading this than forgot this little detail and ended up tearing your hair out.

$ sudo apt-get update
