Myspace audio player+FF= :(

I've got a problem with the MySpace audio player. When I'm trying to listen to a song, there is a message popping up saying that the Flash cannot be played, it suggests me to refresh/restart browser or upgrade flash . But I'm already using this version of flash and I've got the latest FF. p.s.: IE had no problems.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

It seems that it was the unusual behaviour of the Flashblock plugin which caused the problem. Thanks a lot.

I don't have the flashblock plugin installed, but I have the same problem. I click "play" on a song or album on myspace, the player window pops up and it gives this message:

Flash is unavailable for playback. Your Flash version is: 11.1.102 To proceed, try the following:

   Refreshing the Page
   Restarting your Browser
   Upgrading your Flash Player


I do the same thing in google chrome and it plays no problem. But this is the only website where I've encountered a problem with flash player on firefox.

Google Chrome comes with its own Flash plugin, so doesn't require and external plugin to be installed like Firefox needs.

Test if you have the Flash player installed and working.

I have the plugin installed, and it works properly on every other website that I have been to. The myspace music player is the only problem I've experienced so far.

I too have the problem, and running in Safe Mode and disabling various things does not make it go away. Internet Explorer and Google Chrome both work OK. My experience otherwise is the same as MisterEwok's.

Same problem with Firefox 6.0 on Solaris and iceweasel/Firefox 8.0 on Debian. Chromium-browser on Debian works OK.

Same problem. I have FF 10 and the newest flash which is working

FF 10 is in safe mode and I still get the same message in MySpace "flash cannot be played". IE works fine!

I'm rephrasing this. It's Myspace that is not working with Firefox. http://www.espace.mu/ (Radio-Canada) exhibits the same behaviour. I just stopped using them.
