Or you could join the real world and install the native Flash plugin for
Firefox for Linux...
And then it will all work.
I'm all for sharing. But I respect the fact that some companies have
elected not to share their source. I think it's not the best way to do,
but it's their choice. I know they are missing a lot by not letting the
community contribute, but it's their choice.
Nevertheless, they sometimes have good products. In the case of Flash...
Now that Adobe keeps an up-to-date version of Flash player for Linux
(and for Solaris, for that matter - yeah!) I use it and don't bother
with incompatibilities of other flash plugins that have been developed
through reverse engineering.
