Flash Player grey box in Firefox on Fedora Core 9

Hey all-

I'm trying to get flash working on my installation of Fedora Core 9. My laptop has a 64 bit proc, so I'm running fedora 9 64 bit. I installed gnash using yum in order to get flash working, but now when I visit youtube I get a big grey box over where the video/controls should be. I am only using gnash because I had issues installing adobe's flash player due to x86, so I'd be open to get either one or the other working. I just want to be able to use flash content.

See here, and pay attention to the 64bit specific instructions (Installation on Fedora 64-bit, slightly further down)- it works flawlessly for me:
