After some days I’ve now finally got MozillaFirefox to display Flash content. A big “Thank you” to cappaberra on this occasion. There where probably some pieces of an old Flashblocker-Extension or something still flying around in my profile that blocked the flash plugin. Here now a short guide on how to install the flash plugin for those who also have this problem.
- Download the Flash plugin from macromedia.com and extract it.
- There should now be a new folder which contains aflashplayer.xpt and a libflashplayer.so-file. Put the libflashplayer.so into Firefox's plugins/ folder and the other file into components/ folder.
- Now comes the step where I previously failed: In your profile's folder there should be a chrome/ and an extensions/ folder that are used for storing extensions et al. The simplest way would be to delete these two folders and then reinstall your extensions :-)
