Firefox 13 does not see Flash plugin under F14

F14 is not supplied with FF newer than v.3 from the repository, and to get more sights to work I had to deploy FF v.13.0.1 from Mozilla. It works for most part, but one thing - it does not see that Adobe Flash plugin is installed.

I've put new version of FF into /opt/firefox and it recognized all the other addons automatically.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello
you can use the remi or fuduntu repos to install the firefox 14 rpm with yum
I use remi http://remi-mirror.dedipower.com/ see if that cures it

Figured it out! Easiest is to d/l files and install them via command line!

Ha ha you're welcome
if you want to use yum
Code:
su -
root password
gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo
and paste this into it
Code:
[remi]
name=Les RPM de remi pour Fedora $releasever - $basearch
#baseurl=http://rpms.famillecollet.com/fedora/$releasever/remi/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://rpms.famillecollet.com/fedora/$releasever/remi/mirror
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi
failovermethod=priority
then when you want to update again
Code:
yum update firefox --enablerepo=remi
