Do you have the plugin installed?

sudo yum -y install flash-plugin

Then try in Firefox.

response to what you gave me: [liveuser@localhost ~]$ sudo yum -y install flash-plugin

Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

Package flash-plugin- already installed and latest version

Nothing to do

The plugin is installed. Is it enabled in Firefox? In Firefox, type about:plugins in the address bar and hit enter. It should show the list of plugins and there should be something like this:

Shockwave Flash
Version: 11,2,202,285
State: Enabled
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

No enabled plugins found

Find more information about browser plugins at Find updates for installed plugins at Help for installing plugins is available from

Are you running 32 or 64 bit Firefox? Go to about:buildconfig and see "target". x86_64 at the beginning means 64bit. Your plugin is 32bit and that might be the problem. If you have 64bit Firefox, try

sudo yum -y install nspluginwrapper

which is the wrapper for 32bit plugins to work under a 64bit browser.

Just install gnash (sudo yum install gnash.x86_64) No need for proprietary Adobe stuff. And also gnash-plugin.x86_64
