    Flash works with 64 bit Firefox but now Opera???


    Seems strange I have 64 bit version of firefox installed and opera.

    But only works in firefox and not opera! I'm using opensuse 10.3

    Isn't it not supposed to work with 64bit browsers?

    I believe the Firefox dev's have built a plugin wrapper that lets 32 bit plugins work on 64 bit Firefox. Opera uses the same plugin architecture as Firefox, so it may be possible to copy the wrapper (wherever it is) to an appropriate Opera directory and have Flash work in Opera that way... that's just a random thought though, no idea if it'd work.

    I believe there is a problem with the latest versions of flash /opera
    due to how the new version of flash changing how it works...

    Opera will apparently be updated
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
