hi, newbie here, I got java working by installing a symbolic link in my moz plugin directory so I felt confident. I went to macromedia.com downloaded the tar.bz flash file. first off I have never used the bzip util but just the regular tar commands tar -xvf seemed to work (did I do something wrong I don't know). Anyway I ran the appropriate scrips and eventually it asked me the directory to set up in and I selected /urs/lib/mozilla (it did not give and option for the plugin directory if I remember correctly). I finished the install and looked in my moz plugin dir and saw the flash file. all good so far. then I went to a flash page and it worked. great. I closed the browser and went back to a flash site and it did not work. so I ran the about plugins command in firefox and it shows the java but not the flash (the java symbolic link I should say). But looking in my moz plugin directory I see the file created by the flash script. what am I doing wrong? thanks in advance....
