There are 2 versions of the Flash Player, one for IE and another for Firefox and other browsers. To install the version used by Firefox I recommend using the manual installer. For details of how to do that see http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/191/tn_19166.html#main_ManualInstaller

I had a problem like that. Where youtube on firefox doesn't seem to recognize Adobe Flash player. What I did is I went to control panel, programs and features, and unistalled Adobe Flash player. After that I restarted my computer and after it rebooted, I reinstalled Adobe Flash player and now youtube works.
