Note to future readers - The flashplayer that will be downloaded by the wget command in this posting is the 32bit version of 18.104.22.168 and will be downloaded from my dropbox … so unless you are SURE this is the version you require, don’t follow this posting.
Was 11.1 r102 enabled in Firefox ? … if so, what happens if you go back to flashplayer 22.214.171.124 ?
Open a terminal… you can do this by hitting Alt+F2, then typing terminal, then clicking “Run”
When the terminal opens, enter these 5 commands (hitting enter after each one)
Create a ~/.mozilla/plugins directory
(this command may fail if the directory already exists… this is normal… just move on to the next command)
Change directory to ~/.mozilla/plugins :
Use wget to download the flashplayer archive:
Extract the libflashplayer.so file from the flashplayer achive:
tar -zxvf flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz
Move the flashplayer archive back to your home folder to make it easier to delete if you wish:
mv -v flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz ~/flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz
You can now close the terminal.
Close ALL running instances of Firefox and restart it, then (in Firefox) go to Tools>Add-Ons>Plugins and make sure the only “Shockwave Flash” plugin that is enabled is 11.0r1 and that 11.1 r102 is disabled… now restart Firefox again (this is important).
Now go to this website:
where you can check which version of flashplayer you are currently using.
It should say you are running 126.96.36.199
Does Flash now work ?
Once you’re happy it’s running the way it sould, you can delete the flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz file from your home directory, if you wish.
