just to be clear,
do you have a 32 or a 64 bit version of fedora?

Hi streetfi8er,

In about:plugins, you should see the following:

Shockwave Flash

File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 10.0 d21

Also, you may want to verify that the libflashplayer plugin is linked in the following directory:

$ ls -las /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
9320 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9526312 2008-12-28 16:37 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

can you check this:

ls -l /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

if you have it, you can just make a symlink in your firefox plugin directory to this file.

You need to find out where the libflashplayer.so file is, and link it to the directory I posted earlier.

You can use the following command to find the plugin:
$ rpm -ql flash-plugin | grep libflash

Should return the following:
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

Then you can link it into the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ directory as follows:
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

After you run that command, you should see the libflashplayer.so linked as follows:
$ ls -las /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 2009-06-04 10:36 libflashplayer.so -> /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

And once you restart firefox, the "about:plugins" should show that shockwave flash is installed.
