    Firefox and FlashPlayer Problem
    Hi,

    We have an iMac (OS 10.4.11) which has happily been running Firefox with Adobe flashplayer plug-in since new.
    Unfortunately, my wife decided to "tidy up" and now Firefox doesn't have the flash plug-in.

    I've tried re-installing Flash Player (10.2), which gives no errors, but Firefox still won't open .swf files or open flash-based video streams (e.g. BBC iPlayer).

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks -- MegaMogs

    I'd remove and reinstall Firefox and then re-install the Flash Player for it.

    I'd remove and reinstall the wife.

    Just reinstalling the Flash Player is not going to help. You also must reinstall the FF plugin that utilizes the Flash Player. Without the plugin, it won't work.
