Shockwave doesn't work on firefox under linux mint 17, qiana
I use Firefox 33.0 Mozilla Firefox for linux Mint: mint - 1.0 I use linux mint 17, qiana. Cinnemon, 32-bit. As extensions for Firefox I use Adblock Plus 2.6.6. As plugins I use: DivX webplayer 184.108.40.206, Iced-Tea webplugin 1.5, OPenH264 video codec provoded by Cisco systems, Inc. 1.1, Quicktime plug-in 7.6.6. , Shockwave Flash 220.127.116.118, VLC Multimedia plugin (Compatible videos, 3.10.1), Windows Media Player plugin (compatible Videos 3.10.1)
When I surf on a page http://www.jkp.com/media/wysiwyg/MindReading/demo/content/dswmedia/loader.html I get the information: "a plugin is needed to play this content" Since this url was under a button "View shockwave Demo" on page http://www.jkp.com/uk/mindreading/demo/ I presume that the pluging that is needed is a "Shockwave Flash" plugin, but I have installed that. So what do I have to solve the problem?

It is looking for the Shockwave (director) player and not the Flash player.
Adobe does not provide Shockwave player for Linux, only on Mac OSX and Windows. Besides it is more for few games and learning stuff and it used very little compared to the Flash Player for most users.
As you can see it is only for Windows and Mac OSX. http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/otherversions/
