I can't watch videos on many websites. It is very burdensome. This problem make FF worse browser than others, all because of the stupid flash plugin -.-. My question to MOZILLA is WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FINISH IT and release it? You're doing it for 5 months...

Firefox Mobile supports the Flash plugin on Maemo. However, the Flash plugin for Android uses some non-standard interfaces, and we have not yet worked with Adobe to create a version that works with Firefox for Android. We plan to do this in a future version of Firefox. For some more info, see:

Your phone probable came with its own Internet browser also, you can use that to watch videos as Flash does work on that browser (if you are using Android).

I know that I can do it by stock browser or Opera Mobile, but it is hard to use FF for "normal" situation and other browser to watching Videos. Anyway thx for your answer. I will be grateful if You finally release the plugin.

Flash is not compatible with Opera Mobile for Android either. It is using interfaces that are specific to the built-in WebKit library on Android 2.2 and higher.

Flash for Android has not yet been made compatible with browsers like Opera and Firefox that use their own rendering libraries.

OK, thanks. I too, had this problem, and I guess the answer is simply to stop using Firefox on my android, and make internet explorer my default instead. I'd advise others to do the same if they want the functionality. Maybe when HTML5 gets going...
