    Hi guys -- Firefox doesn't install the flash player by default. When you download the flash player from the adobe site it's usually the one for IE8 (only works on the 32 bit version of IE8 even if you are running W7 X-64). It's been fixed now so it works perfectly on W7 X64 (note that firefox is still a native 32 bit app however).

    To get it to work in Firefox download Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.12.36 from the adobe site. If you are using IE8 specify Firefox as the browser or if you are using firefox it will install directly.

    Works a treat
    Here's a screenshot -- the BBC clock shows the Flash plugin is working. (Click on the thumbnail to get a decent size image).

    Cheers
