Thanks for your feedback knudfl
. Sorry I didn't see your response before I took a few extra steps or I would have tried that first. However I came across this website
which gave me a great step by step installation for Fedora 11.
The third page gave me a tip to run "about
: plugins" from the url in Firefox which gave me my "Aha moment" when it came back and said their were no plugins install. I restarted Firefox and it still said no plugins installed.
Then I searched through some more resources and came across these two commands. I tried the first one but "about
: plugins" still showed no plugins installed. Then I tried the 2nd one and it said again no plugins installed. However after I installed the 2nd command below I decided to restart Firefox again, and 'Bingo'.
su -c 'yum install flash-plugin alsa-plugins-pulseaudio \ libcurl'
su -c 'yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64 \nspluginwrapper.i586 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i586 \libcurl.i586'
So I honestly can't say which of the two commands fixed the prob. I'm leaning on the 2nd one simply because it seemed to do a lot more after it was run.
* This takes care of my "Adobe Flash Player" problem but I still don't have the "Adobe Shockwave Player" problem fixed
yet. Thanks for your help.
