What does Firefox's page say when you type in " aboutlugins " in Firefox's address bar ? On a clean install of Mandriva 2007 PowerPack the Flash plugins (32bit) were already loaded and working for my Firefox 1.5.xx. 64 bit apps should read and use the 32 bit pieces if no 64 bit pieces are found.


bit, firefox, flash, help, mandriva
