Question Flash player plugin shows only gray background!


I'm having a weird problem viewing flash content with a browser.
Flash contents are shown as gray boxes, nothing else.

I can get the menu by right-clicking on them and select e.g. print,
so everything else seems to work, but the actual content is not visible,
only gray frame is shown no matter what page I'm using.

I've had this problem a very long time now, so any help would be
really appreciated.

about: plugins gives:
Shockwave Flash

File name:
Shockwave Flash 7.0 r25

application/x-shockwave-flash Shockwave Flash swf Yes
application/futuresplash FutureSplash Player spl Yes

ldd /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.2/plugins/ gives:
(~) ldd /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.2/plugins/ => (0xffffe000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb7d08000) => /lib/ (0xb7d03000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7cf3000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7c2c000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7c1e000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7bcd000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7bb8000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb7b94000) => /lib/tls/ (0xb7a6a000)
/lib/ (0x80000000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7a62000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7a4a000)

I've checked all of these files and everyone of them is found and as new as it can be.

Current installation:
- Fedora Core 3, i686, 32-bit
- 2.6.10 kernel
- firefox-1.0.2
- flash-plugin 7.0.25-1
... but not working with earlier fedoras, earlier firefoxes and
mozillas and earlier flash-plugins either, so I'm really lost with this one

Please help me if you can...

Thanks so many
