I'm having a problem with adobe flash player and fedora 15
Firefox won't recognize the installed plugin so my question is how can I uninstall flash player and reinstall it.
P.S: I am new to Linux so I'd appreciate if you could break down the process for me.

I would recommend to follow this:
The Perfect Desktop - Fedora 15 i686 (GNOME) | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
As you already have fedora installed, it might get interesting starting with page 3.You must always face the curtain with a bow.

If the usual flash installation method doesn't work, an alternative installation option that works well and is often used is to download flash from adobe's website, then:
- create a folder called "plugins" (if it doesn't already exist) in your /home/your_user_name/.mozilla folder
- decompress the downloaded flash file
- copy/move the file with the ".so" extension to the new plugins folder
- restart firefox
To un-install flash, simply rename the .so file, or remove it from the /.mozilla/plugins folder.oz
