    Have you tried another browser?

    And - I hate to ask this question - do you know if it works in Windows, with IE?

    how did you install flash?

    normally, I let firefox install the flash pluggin from macromedia.com automatically. everything just works.

    also can you see other flash content. hit another site that has flash content and see if it displays.

    In Ubuntu 5.10 (breezy), it's pretty much straight forward.

    1) Make sure you have
    Code:
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy universe multiverse
    in your /etc/apt/sources.list.

    2) Then update your apt-get database
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    3) And finally install flash, making sure any browsers is closed:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    Make sure you answer properly the configuration's questions.

    That's it!

    I had a problem while upgrading firefox to the 1.5.0.3
    version. My flashplayer went nuts. It turned out to be adblock.
    I upgraded adblock, and the problem was solved. Some
    browser extensions may interact. You have to experiment.
