Thread: No flash-movies such as youtube in firefox 4

  1. #1

    Default No flash-movies such as youtube in firefox 4

    Hi,

    Yesterday I installed firefox 4 manually on my opensuse 11.3 pc with this guide: How to install Firefox 4 Final on Linux (Ubuntu) | johannes-eva.net . Since then, I cannot watch youtube or other streaming videos. It says it's missing the flash-plugin and that I should download it. But this is installed, as other browsers as opera and also firefox 3.6 can manage these sites.
    Also, other flash sites such as google docs don't have any problems to load in firefox 4.

    So, how should i resolve this?

    I would look at post #84 in this message thread to see if it helps with Flash in Firefox 4:

    Firefox on openSUSE 11.4 plays film clips badly

    Hi,

    if you have several firefoxes, you'll problay need to install the plugin for each one separately.

    Check under tools->additional modules whether the plugin is installed or not...

    @ jdmcdaniel3:

    This solution didn't change anything

    @lenwolf:
    In firefox 4, this plugin is missing like you said (it is present in firefox 3.6)
    How can I install it?
    I already tried to copy libflashplayer.so to ~./.mozilla/plugins but it didn't work

    thanx

    try these :
    Firefox - openSUSE

    or mozilla website
    Mozilla Firefox 4 Release Notes
    and there on the right hand site corner is "linux" link to instalation file which runs in Ark (in opensuse 11.4 installs the firefox easier way that you did)

    And I can confirm that with this repo on 11.3 flash works like a charm
    without any additional tweaking on 11.3 (did my update a few weeks ago to
    FF4 on the 11.3 machine).

    I did so, but I cannot see the whole package of firefox 4 in yast, only stuff like mozillafirefoxdevel, mozillafirefox-debuginfo, mozillafirefox-branding-upstream etc.

    I don't think I can download firefox 4 completely with this?

    That is not the way to do it in openSUSE. Add this repository to your
    repository list (yast -> software -> software repositories -> add ->
    community repositories -> selct mozilla) and after that in yast -> software
    management choose the new version of firefox. That's it.
