Google Chrome comes with its own Flash Player (11.6 r602)

Adobe hasn't updated the Flash Player for Firefox on Linux, so Firefox still has 11.2 r202 version and this may be causing the problem.

Did you try a new profile with all extensions disabled and no other modification to (font) prefs?

Thanks for your replies http://www.flickr.com/photos/56134002.../lightbox/ Actually I tried these solutions but not fixed. The problem is the flash player plugin because Opera also has this problem too. The problem is this version of Flash player doesn't support the right to left language orientation in addition it treats the Arabic language as it has a seperated characters while the characters must be joined together. I think the solution is that Firefox make it's own plugin like google chrome or fix the current plugin. Maybe I'm wrong but I wish it could be fixed like " google chrome "
