Flash for Firefox?


I was told that there is no Flash available plugin for Firefox on the AMD64 platform. I just installed Debian 64 and it came with Gnome and Firefox 1.0.7. I can't seem to load "Flash Plugin". Do you guys have any suggestions?

Not a suggestion, but for future reference:

I'm using Firefox 1.0.7 with Flash on Windows XP. I've got the Adblock extension installed, but when I activate it, Flash doesn't work. When I deactivate Adblock, Flash works!

There's another update for firefox (in Sid) as of today.
The previous version didn't carry over any plugins from /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins to the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory... you can make the symlinks manually too.

Also, beware of the adblock extension, you'll need to uncheck the "Obj-tabs" setting in the preferences or flash won't work properly.

I don't know if there's a 64-bit version, but there certainly is a flashplayer and a shockwave plugin for Firefox that works great. You just need to find and download the installer and choose firefox and the necessary directories, and perhaps move a couple of files around, and it works flawlessly. I think you should be able to use the 32-bit version on 64-bit platform, minus the 64-bit benefits.
