Flash Player Not Working


I've installed the Linux flash player but no matter which browser I use I get the same problem. If I do aboutlugins it shows the plugins is installed and working but when I go to a website with a Flash section the Flash section loads but nothing is displayed. I can right mouse click on the Flash section to get the about Macromedia menu thingy but no flash is displayed.

Any ideas?

Did you drop the 2 files into /home/(your-home)/.mozilla/plugins ?

If not, try there and it should work.

I have the two plugins files in three folders...

~/.mozilla/plugins
~/.phoenix/plugins
~/.netscape/plugins

But no matter which browser I use I get the same problem. If the plugins weren't in the right directory I wouldn't see them when I did aboutlugins.
