Hi John,
I'm having no problems with flash videos on FFx and the flashplayer9
plugin. Can you try typing
in the FFx navigation bar and let us know what the shockwave flash entry
says? It should look something like this:
Shockwave Flash

    File name:
    Shockwave Flash 9.0 r64

MIME Type       Description     Suffixes        Enabled
application/x-shockwave-flash   Shockwave Flash         swf     Yes
application/futuresplash        FutureSplash Player     spl     Yes

Please do not send me copies of list mail. I read the lists. Thanks!
