Did you try going to the following page to confirm?


Or type in "about:plugins" without the quotes into Firefox's address bar 
to see if the plugin is there.

If you can verify using the above that you have some version of Flash 
installed, I have 11,2,202,418, it is possible that the Discovery 
website is requiring a higher version of Flash.

The issue with that is Adobe stopped updating Flash at 11,2,202,418.  I 
think the current version is 15.  Some sites might require a newer 
version of Flash.

Try going to Youtube and playing any video, right click on the video. 
If you see the Flash version number that means your Flash is installed 
and Discovery's site just needs a later version.
