I have flash installed on my system. I can watch youtub videos. I don't understand why the facebook farm game doesn't work?

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.
