Nope. But I just went to cnbc and viewed one of the clips NP. I guess I
would first go into Firefox and check the plugins and see what shows
there.

Mine shows Shockwave Flash 10.0 r12

Does your's show that? Do the commands below give similar results?

$ rpm -q flash-plugin
flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386
$ rpm -q firefox
firefox-3.0.7-1.el5.centos.i386

If not, I've got another thing I found out. Make sure Firefox is not set
to check if it's the default browser and that it is *not* set to make
itself the default browser. This wipes out the pluginreg.dat if it is
set.
