Ritrup:

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems

See Basic Troubleshooting: Make a new profile

There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions & Plugins"

If that new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile (be careful not to copy corrupted files) See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox

That's fine and all, however, my home Macbook works fine with Flash on Beta 2. It's just my work laptop where Flash is broken on FF 4 B2.

Copying the flash .so plugin in ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins did the trick for me. The file used to be in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins.

Hi, can you break this down into "stupid" for me, I cant seem to find the folders or don't understand something.

Cheers.
