over the past few weeks, it looks like my FC5 installation is dying like my gnome-screensaver acting up, i lost my lid standby and now flash player sometimes doesnt work / isnt recognized.
but this flash problem is just crazy i mean itl work sometimes and other times it doesnt. Also, i don't get anything from firefox saying im missing a plugin. But for instance some sites with flash auto redirect me to the flash download site from macromedia.
.. so kinda wonderin is anyone else experiencing strange issues ..
as for the OS itself ... FC5 still starts really fast and applications still load fast
i will probably end up reinstalling when in a few weeks when i get some time.

I have a similar issue. My issue is that I keep on getting asked by firefox to install flash player. I installed flash player manually already!? Any suggestions? :confused:

I have the exact same problem and that is my sole reason for coming to these forums. I have done everything I can think of: manual install, auto install, and yum repo update through Warren's Repo. I'm soooo confused. Firefox just will not seem to recognize the plugin in about:plugins. Any help would be nice!
