How do I get a flash plugin to work with firefox?
I thought that I installed it correctly,
but I have yet to see any flash videos through firefox.

I keep being told that I need an additional plugin.
When I folow directions, I'm told I already have it?
At least once, I was told I needed to upgrade.

In case it helps, here is the output of
yum provides '*flash*' | grep -e lash -e dobe -e repo /tmp/flash.txt | grep -v 
-e /src/ -e .png -e share | tee /tmp/flash.txt
