yes, I installed ver 7 the latest as firefox came with no plugin for it.
I learned in my java install the best way was to follow the instructions from the website that produced the plugin. As I tried to follow a java tutorial and got my system all screwed up but when I followed Suns instructions it went smooth as pie.
Step One: So I did the same thing with Flash. I went to Macromedia's website (linked above)
Downloaded flash to my desktop. It created a folder just as It said it would called (install_flash_player_7_linux )
Step two: I then opened a terminal typed su - to get to root.
In root from the terminal navigated my way to this new directory it created and entered the command: (since I am often not sure where it creates the directories I usually use nautlus to doublecheck path, as I recall it put it in my home directory.)
Step three: closed the firefox browser and restarted it and I was done.
yes, it works for that page but the page doesn't display 100% normally it resides in the left 1/3 of the page in my ubuntu.
but you see the images, hear the sounds, have links.
the way its displayed suggests to me that it is written more for windows then linux thats thier coding not yours.

I think it is a bug with Flash and Firefox. The above link only shows about 1/3 of the page.
On my desktop running Debian sid and Firefox 1.0.6 and on my laptop running Ubuntu with Firefox 1.0.6 and Shockwave Flash 7.0 r25, all I get is the 1/3 page on www.phong.com .
ok. I have downloaded and tried opera. Flash really works fine. Hopefully either firefox or MM should look into this. This problem has been there ever since ver 4.10, hopefully breezy will have this solved.
Now, another issue arised, no multi-media plugins for opera. How do I enable this?
