You have to give a little more detail. Is the problem that firefox crashes when you enter a flash website or is it that Firefox acts as if Flash wasn't installed at all (e.i. a message saying that Flash isn't installed)?

If firefox crashes when you go to visit a web site with flash, try putting:

export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1

in the firefox script that starts firefox, mine is in /usr/lib/firefox/ I dont know where FC4 puts it. It worked for me. And liek Zeistler said, please give more detail next time.
