Flash player not loading in Firefox


I just installed the latest version Flash Player and still a page is not loading it. Where the player should be is totally blank, but the rest of the page loads. Here's the page that did not load Flash: http://gawker.com/civil-disobedience/

YouTube works fine, as other web sites with Flash. I opened the link, above, in Safari and it played with no trouble. Why am I having this problem?

I see the Flash player if I reload the page with a click on the Reload toolbar button or Ctrl+R (Cmd+R on Mac)
