Adobe Flash player

Last night I downloaded the latest version of the browser Firefox (vers. 4.0.1) and this morning i can't watch videos. The notice informed me to download the latest Adobe Flash Player which I did (by following the link and d/loading the flash player). Then I installed the player normally.
However, still not able to see videos.
Am I missing someting? Anyone else struck this problem?
Anyone know the solution?

kind regards to all

No problems here with Firefox or IE.

Did you download the Firefox version of Flash?


NOTE - If you are using Firefox, Flash Player is installed as a Firefox plug-in.
To make sure the Flash Player plug-in is enabled, do the following:
  1. In the Firefox menu, select Tools > Add-ons.
  2. Select Plugins in the Add-ons dialog box.
  3. Select Shockwave Flash in the list of plugins.

  4. If you see the Disable button, then the Flash Player plug-in is enabled. Close the dialog box.
  5. If you see the Enable button, then the Flash Player plug-in is disabled. Select the Enable button and close the dialog box.
Should that not work it will mean an uninstall / reinstall of Flash .

JMH ... 10 out of 10 for you my friend. Yes it was there ... for some reason during the download of the new Flash Player it switched itself to disabled. So it was simple to restore. Thanks very much.
