    Adding a flash player for Mozilla/firebird?

    I went to a site with Firebird that contained flash and it wanted me to go download the flash player. Well, I already have it on my computer. I was a loyal IE 6.0 fan, but recently have heard about security holes and to top it off, I have been to sites where stuff tries to get installed on my computer, so I like the popup aspect of it. Anyways, I went to preferences but couldn't find a place to choose where a certain file would be (ie, flashplayer.exe)

    Thanks
    Bryan

    You need to go to the Macromedia site and install the plugin for Mozilla/Firebird on your computer if you want to use that browser for flash based sites. The Internet Explorer plugin is not compatible.

    The plugin will be installed in your MozillaFirebird/plugins directory.

    Also have a look in the firebird FAQs as there's an issue with the flash plugin for firebird that requires a workaround.
