How about a little bit more information ?
Do you see the plugin in about:plugins (enter as URL in Firefox) ?
Is the plugin working in Safari ?

Flashplayer 10 works fine with Safari.

With Firefox 3.5, videos such as YouTube give the message "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player."

I have noticed that various people have posted reports saying they have the same problem, and only Flashplayer 9 will work with firefox 3.5.

about:plugins elicits the message "No plugins are installed"

Flashplayer has to be enabled manually with Firefox 3.5, this done by going to Tools / Add-ons.

WFM: Mac OS X Leopard + Firefox 3.5.1

Tiger issue?
Component: File Handling → Plug-ins
Product: Firefox → Core
QA Contact: general → plugins
Version: 3.5 Branch → 1.9.1 Branch
It does work after you enabled it and it still works after restarting Firefox ?
All plugins are enabled by default, either an addon did this or you disabled it by mistake somehow.

I did do a 'safe' start recently to try to identify why it was opening and quiting so slowly, so perhaps it gets stuck in 'safe' mode with the add-ons disabled?.

Closing since now after whiteboard closeme date and no reply to last comment.

Please reopen/comment with further info, if you still see this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later, with a clean profile and the latest version of the plugin.

If you wish, you can also try to reproduce in Firefox 4 Beta 8 or later:
