Ho to prevent firefox from blocking Flash player

Dear All,

I cannot get Firefox 5.0 to use Adobe Flash Player. When I run http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ I always see the message "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Flash. Please upgrade to the latest version." The thing is, I have the latest version of Flash plugin (10.3.181.34) installed. I have tried uninstalling the Flash plugin (including using the uninstaller form Adobe's website) and installing it again (there are no errors reported during installation) without effect.

Here is some more background in case it's relevant: +Installed Firefox 5.0 after clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. The computer is on a Windows domain. +I manually copied some files (bookmarks, etc.) to the newly created profile +When prompted to install Flash player I did so. The installation had no effect in that Firefox keeps asking me to install the plugin. +Other plugins work fine (I have a limited set of standard plugins). +I have tried reinstalling Firefox (even an older version 3.6.18) and the problem persists. +I manually added the entry "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf32.dll" in about:config, with no effect +There is no mention of Flash in about:plugins

I have exhausted the solutions I have seen suggested in various places on the web. I would greatly appreciate if somebody could help me sort this issue out - I love Firefox but it's impossible to switch to different browser every time I need to view Flash content.

Best, S.

This issue really depends what website I am trying to load but even the basic websites this problem happens to me.

A while ago it became impossible to make Firefox automatically delete history through Tools/Options/Privacy. But it was still possible to manipulate this by going to about:config and modifying browser_history.expire.days. I used to set this to 3 and then Firefox would delete my history after 3 days like I wanted.

But now under about config I can find browser_history.expire.days.min and browser_history.expire.days.mirror. I guess the "min" thing means that FF should keep my history for at least X days, the other one I have no idea.

All of these browser_history.expire.days thingies are however set to 3 for me. And FF still won't delete my history.

But then how can I get FF to delete it automatically? Has Firefox really become incapable of doing such a basic thing as deleting history automatically after a number of days set by the user?!

This seems like it should be the easiest thing to do in firefox but I can't figure out how to change the sites that appear in my browser dropdown list. Who/What determines which sites are in this dropdown. It's definitely not the most frequently used. I have sites in there that I've been to only once. Please advise. Thanks

I don't understand the benefit of "Tab Utilities Options" and want to remove it. How please? I tried that feature because "Fox Tab" was no longer available with the 5.0 upgrade.

I loved "Fox Tab". A click and go to a website you had added to "top sites" previously. With the 5.0 upgrade, that feature is no longer available. That was a disappointment. Is there a similar feature "add on" that is like "Fox Tab" compatible with 5.0. If so I would like to know about that. Or better still....make "Fox Tab" useable with Firefox 5.0 If upgrades cancel previously downloaded features that really work...what's the point?
