Firefox will not play flash video's even when using freshplayerplugin wrapper setup.
When I try to run flash video's in Linux with Firefox setup with the freshplayerplugin wrapper the video player still say's I do not have the current version of flash running. What I want to know is why this is happening and how to fix it. In windows Firefox runs these video's correctly. The site in question is: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Made-by-Destruction/6538990914276572112/705425475864/Coins%2C-Speakers%2C-and-Race-Cars/videos
What is the fix if there is one or am I just going to have to view them from windows.

The freshplayerplugin wrapper as you may know makes use of the Pepper Flash from Chrome or Chromium installed on system.
Is your Chrome or Chromium browser up to date to have up to date Pepper Flash?
If you have the NPAPI Flash Plugin 11.2.x installed then Firefox may be using that either instead or has not detected the freshplayerplugin.
I have not used the freshplayerplugin for some months but I remember they both could not be active at same time.
As to Linux, make sure the current (just updated) version is installed. Flash Player (Linux) Version 220.127.116.116 Note: Other software is offered in the download.
I guess the freshplayerplugin was not enough of a clue that this was not about the NPAPI Flash Plugin 11.2.x. But then with you never having used Linux you may not have heard of the freshplayerplugin wrapper method.
Also there is no extra software in Mac OSX or Linux Flash Player downloads as you need to tailor your post to the OS.
