Currently there are two packages that can replace adobe flash in firefox, your options are Gnash and Lightspark.

Gnash is available in fedora repository.

su -
yum install gnash

Lightspark is available in rpmfusion-free repository. So add rpmfusion-free repository first, then install lightspark. Aldo check out this page for more information about Lightspark:

su -
yum install lightspark

GNU Gnash is the GNU Flash movie player — Flash is an animation file format pioneered by Macromedia which continues to be supported by their successor company, Adobe. Flash has been extended to include audio and video content, and programs written in ActionScript, an ECMAScript-compatible language. Gnash is based on GameSWF, and supports most SWF v7 features and some SWF v8 and v9.
