    Default I've had enough; Flash and Firefox

    I simply can't get Flash to work on Firefox. That means video clips, Myspace material, etc. I've downloaded the latest plugin to the best of my knowledge, but that still didn't work. Has anyone else had this problem and figured out a successful way to fix it?

    YEP - I've never been able to get Flash to work in Firefox either which means I've never used Firefox. If this problem were in IE, everyone would be screaming bloody murder and calling for Bill Gate's head on a stick.

    I don't get the Firefox love.

    I love firefox. I've never received even one popup while using Firefox...seriously. I have a plugin that blocks scripts, but I can enable them for when I want to view the flash stuff. Are you sure that isn't what you have?

    Honestly, I have no clue.

    Java and flash work just fine for me on Firefox; I've used this browser for years now.

    I DID have a problem with flash not working at one time, however. I have an extension that blocks advertisements (well, let me say that I THINK that's the one causing the trouble, but it was one of my extensions), and at one time it was screwed up to where it blocked all flash. Once I figured that out, I got it back.

    I've been using Firefox since version .8 and Flash has always worked fine, by just installing this. Hicks is probably right, some installed extension could be causing the problem.

    Agreed. Are you guys running Adblock? If so, try:

    Tools -> Adblock -> Preferences -> Then go to "Adblock Options" and uncheck Obj-Tags. That's not a firefox issue, though, it's an Adblock issue. Adblock's an extension.

    And if you're not running AdBlock, what are you thinking?
