If you visit a page which needs flash to be displayed correctly click on
the the missing plugin icon and Firefox will automatically install it
for you. Restart firefox and type about:plugins in the address bar. If
the plugin has been successfully installed you should see ‘Shockwave Flash’ among plugins.

  • Adobe Flash Plugin

Alternativelly you can install the Adobe Fedora Repository and install/update Flash plugin easilly. Open a console and type:

Type The Following Commands in The Teminal One By One .

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

[Puneet@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

Another Flash Plugins

Open Source Gnash Plugin

Fedora 8 comes with an open source flash plugin. To install it type:

$ sudo yum install gnash gnash-plugin

Gnash for some reason installs its plugin into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins when it needs to be in /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.8/plugins.

So to fix this type:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libgnashplugin.so /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.8/pluginslibgnashplugin.

So Be careful to replace the correct Firefox version in the above command.
For the New Version Like I have :2.0.0.10-5.fc9

SO Mine Plugins will install on /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10-5.fc9/plugins.

Alternate Way to Install Gnash Flash Plugins

Go to Applications->System Tools->Yum Extender

Click ON-> Package View

Now Search For ->Gnash :in Available Package

Choose The Packages Depending on Ur Version No.

Note: Thanks to Nomb for that info!
