Flash Player on Tor


Is it possible to install and use Flash Player whilst running under a Tor enabled browser. I have seen a version compiled to run under Windows but don't want to go backwards! I am running Ubuntu 10.10.

Huh? Tor has nothing to do with Flash.

Tor may make your Internet unbearably slow, and the common pairing with Privoxy may have rules to block flash, but Tor and Flash are unrelated and do not interfere with each other.

So can you explain better?

I am looking to access UK sites with content that's not available outside of the UK, which use Flash Player but the TOR software I have installed does not include it and I cannot see a way to load it. If you switch Tor off the Flash Player is enabled.

I found out you can enable the add on's under a preference tab, hidden, but when this is on it allows access to the IP etc, so is not secure. In effect I cannot use it for what I want, OK no problem. Closed thread.

Ahhh, I see. What preferences tab would that be? It sounds like a privacy Firefox extension?
