How do I get Flash to play in Firefox 14.0 on Android?

Posted

I have plugins enabled in Firefox 14.0 on my Motorola Atrix and also have Adobe Flash Player 11.1.111.10 installed, but Flash doesn't load in Firefox. Instead, I get the error message: "A plugin is needed to display this content." Switching my plugin setting to "Tap to play" instead of Enabled doesn't solve the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled both Flash and Firefox, but that didn't solve the problem either. I can, however, get Flash to load for the same website in Dolphin HD. The website I have been trying today is http://www.greatamericanrestaurants.com/Carlyle/.

Tap to play Flash videos in Firefox for mobile. You can also enable flash to play by default in Menu > More > Settings > Plugins, but you might want to read our security article first.

I already have plugins enabled. I also already tried switching to the "Tap to play" setting in the settings menu you referenced, but I still do not get the tap to play prompt on the webpage. Instead, with "Tap to play" or "Enabled" selected, I get "A plugin is needed to display this content."

How about the Tegra 3 chipset as there are some tablets and phones with earlier versions out now or soon like the Nexus 7, ASUS Transformer Pad 300, Acer Iconia Tab A510, LG Optimus 4X HD, HTC One X and such.
