Unhappy Install missing plug-in problem on firefox 3.0.4


Hi,

I'm using fedora 10, firefox 3.0.5. After loading web sites with flash contents, the firefox ask for "Install missing plug-in". Even after I successfully installed the flash player, and restarted the firefox, it continues to ask the same. Re-installing flash player failed saying "...already installed". Creating link of libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins didn't solve the problem.

You might have installed an older or incompitable version of flash-plug-in for Firefox. I installed it successfully on my RHEL 5 system.



Just search for a compatible version of flash-plug-in for Firefox. You should download an RPM from sourceforge.net

I installed plug-in after firefox automatically redirected me to download page of adobe flash plugin. I tried installing rpm and yumm. If fact, the flash player is already installed, but firefox is not detecting it.
