adobe flash player videos won't play

I've got the most current version of Adobe Flash installed but still can't play videos that play fine with Safari. Don't know if it an extension, plug-in, or ? problem.

When I click on a video, I don't get a message such as missing plug-in or anything. I just get a page with a blank space where the video should be.

Problem persists even after suggestions. Still happens in Safe Mode and after clearing cache and cookie. Appear (according to their site) to have latest version of Flash but do get the following message when I go to your link for Website Storage issues.

Global Storage Settings panel AlertThis content requires Flash

Download the free Flash Player now! Get Adobe Flash Player

Does the Adobe test page confirm that Flash is installed?

Yes, the Adobe test page confirms I have the current plug-in installed. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash Player w/o any luck. I've followed all the troubleshooting guides I can find. I don't even know if it is a Flash Player problem but since that seems to be what plays it with Safari, I was guessing it would be the same with Firefox.

I do appreciate any suggestions as I'm at a loss to figure it out.

All video links you provided are playing fine on my system.

Check and tell if that works.

Did you clear your Flash Cookies as well as your Firefox Cookies as mentioned in my first reply ??
