Went back and installed Firefox and pulse audio.It works fine now have sound and the browser that i like.

When extracting the flash library, be sure that after you copy it to the mozilla plugins directory, reset the owner and group permissions. The tar archive I grabbed had this owner and group:

# tar tvf
-rwxr-xr-x buildmeister/labuser 9560488 2009-07-18 00:04

My problem was resolved when these permissions were changed to root:root and the Firefox page was reloaded.

I have pasted the directions from that thread below for others if needed.

At this point you should probably be using the 64-bit flash on 64-bit
systems. Here are my notes from when I did it. Caution the pathnames
on adobe's site may have changed a bit.

# alpha release of flash 64-bit

# pulseaudio-libs.i386 pulseaudio-*libs*.i386
yum erase flash-plugin.i386 nspluginwrapper.x86_64 nspluginwrapper.i386

cd /tmp
# main page: (url removed)
wget (url removed)
tar -xvzf
cp /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

I had the same problem with the plugin working but with no sound. This fixed it for me perfectly.

Cool Flash Audio problem fixed in Fedora 13

For Fedora 13 I tried Installing the plug-ins "ALSA-Pulse Audio Backend" through add/remove software. Already the 64 bit version was installed. When I just installed the i86 version also the sound in all flash videos started to work just fine. I suppose the same will work out in previous versions implementing 64 bit also.


bit, fedora, firefox, fix, flash, flash-plugin, sound
