How to get Flash to work with Firefox 1.5

I am running Mandriva 2006, and I upgraded Firefox to 1.5. Websites with Flash are telling me I need the plugin. I installed the plugin with MCC which put the plugin into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Is there anything else I need to do because it is still not showing any flash content.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

That should work unless you are using a 64bit version of Mandriva. If so, there is not yet a 64bit of flash for firefox. If not, go to Help, About Plugins in Firefox and see if it is actually installed.

Hope this helps,

Thanks. I think my problem is different than I thought. I have visited other flash sites and they seem to be working. The site I was attempting to access was trying to detect my browser and apparently was not doing it correctly.

Sorry for the false alarm.
