Well, did you install the rpm for flash or did u install directly from the browser ? If you did that from the browser, I suggest you install it from an rpm file. In any case, flash player needs 2 files in the plugins directory of firefox.

So just make sure that you have the flash player rpm file. In case you dont, get it from

Then extract the 2 files and flashplayer.xpt to your firefox plugins directory.......Next, go to

and open an e-card made in flash...If you are able to view the card graphics, that means install is successful.

That (the e-card site) worked but some sites still tell me that I need a flash plugin.

Does this site work for you?

Maybe its somthing with the site? Not that I really need to go there but my 6yr old daughter does. My only concern is that it is somthing that should work but doesn't.
