Flash player not working

Hi all, My win 7 64 bit with Mozilla Firefox 5 or 4.01 does not play the flash content of my home page. Please note that I have read many posts regarding this issue and nothing has fixed the problem. I get the continues prompt you have to install flash player to read this content. Many many installations it never works. I have used the uninstall flash player command and then reinstalled the player many times. No go.
The browser Mozilla Firefox is 32 bit. Is there a fix or can I use a different player to play the content? Any help would be appreciated as I have been trying to fix this for two months now.The flash player content is part of my Home Page The Globe and Mail, Toronto daily Newspaper. Regards Peter

Well, I just checked out the Globe and Mail's homepage on MY win 7 64bit and Mozilla Firefox 5.0. It works fine.
Rather a nice looking website too.
Sorry. you'll have to wait for the heavyweights.

Try adding that website to the security exceptions list under your firefox 'options' under the 'tools' tab. It's a professional, commercial and known site. It's probably quite safe to do so.
