    Flash player is being a jerk

    It works on some sites, like www.albinoblacksheep.com, but not on sites like www.myspace.com or www.homestarrunner.com. I have the newest flash player, could that be the problem?

    Do you have the newest flash player for windows or for Firefox? They are separate plugins. Flash 8 files won't be shown by a FF browser with the flash 7 plugin. To check and see what you have type

    about:plugins

    into your address bar.

    This might be a problem more with your computer not your version of flash. I have the flash 8 plugin for FF and I can see the flash on homestarrunner.com just fine. Do you have the adblock extension or some type of firewall?
