Installing Macromedia Flash Player for Firefox


I am using FC5 and Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.1
I want to install the Macromedia Flash Player.I downloaded it and installed in the Firefox 1.5.0.1 directory.But when I open the browser and if a site contains a flash, it fails to show and the browser says "Missing Plugins".How to install Flash Player?

One more thing: How to update Firefox in Linux.It is not updated automatically as in Windows.

If you want to install a new version of Firefox just download it from mozilla.com. To view website with Flash you need to click the "missing plugins" bar on the top.

I got it to work perfectly. This is a very good link, check it out. http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...ion_notes.html

This is the first result when you Google search "flash and fedora core 5"

Good Luck,
~Justin

If That Doesn"t Work

Hey I followed those steps over and the installer still didn't recogonize the flash plugin. I ended up figuring it out by going to a site... but they aren't letting me post it... so I can tell you its off easylinux dot info under an application called Fedora Frog. Once I got this application and followed their steps I got the new flash to work great on FC5.


OS: FC5
Home: Mozilla Firefox:1.5.0.4
CPU: i386


I have gotten so much help in the past, i figured I'd throw my sucess out there for who ever wants it.


Best of luck.


Pete
