Flash isnt working correctly in Firefox 3

Im running Ubuntu Hardy Heron, and Firefox 3. Sites with a flash game, or video have a black screen with a play button on them, but when i click on the play button you cant see the vid, or play the game. I can however watch youtube videos, so im kinda stumped.

Usually when the play button is over them, you're using Gnash or you've got the flash block add-on in Firefox. Try using the official Flash release from Adobe.

Remember, Flash isn't made for Linux... so there are some imperfections and doesn't work entirely as it should.

Ive been using the most recent version of flash from the adobe site, and I dont have any ad blocking addons currently. So its just something i need to live with?
