Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); zh-CN; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); zh-CN; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

My firefox is the version like "download and play".
When I am reading some pages that have flash on them, a box containing "missing plugins" is coming into view.  It misses Macromedia Flash Player(MFP) as everybody knows.  The I click the box and "next"s through all the way.  In the last frame, it tells me that MFP has been installed.  But it doesn't work at all!  I'm still missing the MFP plugin.  Then I try yum, and even copy the flashplayer.xpt  libflashplayer.so into the directory firefox/plugins, which has already have libnullplugin.so in it, but to my disappointment, they don't make any progress.  So I have to ask for the most export supports.
BTW, firefox in my Winxp sp2(32bit) works well, so I wonder whether the bug belongs to my FC4 x86-64?

Reproducible: Always
Do you have a old version of Adblock installed?
In that case see Bug 308918.

No.
Actually, the flashes in pages are not blocked.  They miss the Flash Player, which is not available due to wierd cause.

Give some info in my PC.

When I click the button to install the Flash player automatically, the two files are put into ~/.mozilla/plugins.  But it seems that firefox can't use it.

In ~/.mozilla/firefox, no plugins directory but a file names pluginreg.dat, and it says:
Generated File. Do not edit.

[HEADER]
Version:0.08:$

[PLUGINS]
/setup/firefox/plugins/libnullplugin.so:$
:$
1131757204000:1:5:$
The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.:$
Default Plugin:$
1
0:*:All types:.*:$ 

/setup/firefox is where my firefox-1.5 lives.  Is there something wrong with the pluginreg.dat?

This may be the fedora bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=151870

I believe the problem is that flash isn't available for 64 bit linux

John, are you still able to retest?

1. Do you still have this problem on Firefox 2.0.0.3?

2. Also, from what website did you get Firefox?  Please provide us with the complete URL you got it from.  Or, if you used yum, tell us your Firefox version.

3. Are you using 32bit or 64bit Firefox?

4. What did you mean by "So I have to ask for the most export supports" in your original report?

If you do not respond, unfortunately we might close this bug report.  If that happens, feel free to reopen.

one sollution:  delete every Java or Flash installation also in the register,
Still not possible use Microsoft Fix it!!! to delete all for Java or Flash etc.
It delete all bad files and registers.

after this you can install everything as normal.

for JAVA:
ALWAYS DELETE THE LAST INSTALLATION BEFORE YOU INSTALL THE NEW UPDATED FILE
