Try uninstalling and then reinstalling Flash player and make sure you get the 32-bit version of Flash (the 64-bit version doesn't work with Firefox). According to your plugin information, Firefox doesn't think that Flash is installed or enabled.

I completely removed Flash and it's plugin from my laptop(xpsp3) and downloaded the flash install file to a thumb drive on my net book and then got Flash to install from the thumb drive. Everything works fine.
