firefox and flash - Macromedia Flash Player

I saw a few posts in this forum related to this, but the threads were so old I thought I'd post a new topic in hopes that it helps similarly disaffected people like myself. About a year ago, my firefox browser only displayed white boxes for flash content. Uninstall, reinstall, reinstall, uninstall, upgrade, etc. etc.Nothing helped. IE worked fine with flash. Tonight I finally realized that the fix is to disable Adblock (the firefox extension). I promptly ditched adblock and installed its new replacement, "Adblock plus." Flash works great now....

    Default Firefox and Flash

    I downloaded and installed Adobe FlashPlayer recently from Internet Explorer
    (IE), when I attempting to review an ecard at the Blue Mountain website. This
    operation worked and I was subsequently able to view the cards. Today, I was
    using Firefox, as my browser, and when I attempted to view an ecard at Blue
    Mountain, I, once again was directed to download Adboe FlashPlayer. I repeated
    the process I performed with IE, but, unfortunately, I still can not view the
    cards while using Firefox. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    IE uses the Flash Player ActiveX control (and is the only browser to do so).

    Firefox, and all other browsers, use the Flash Player plugin. Which is why
    you had to do a separate install.

    When you use FireFox to view the Flash Player test page, what do you see?

    Default Firefox and Flash

    Hi. I've had this problem with flash programs for a long time.

    I believe my firefox only has 5.0 installed, and each time I try to install
    9.0, It only installs into the Opera directory so the Firefox doesn't update.
    Is there some way I can fix this easily?
