Description of problem:
Mozilla Firefox should permit the installation of the Flash plugin
when it detects that its not present...
... this functionality does not work with Fedora Core 3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to tharow.com (example site that comes to mind)
2. Click "Install plugin" at top of screen
3. Let it try to install
Actual Results: Install "Failed"
Expected Results: Install should succeed.
Hmm just had a quick test and I can't reproduce this problem here. Please can
you post the exact RPM (rpm -q firefox) version of firefox you are using.
On another note, could you close all mozilla windows and try temporarily moving
aside your .mozilla folder (e.g. mv .mozilla .mozilla.real) and seeing whether
the plugin installs with an empty profile (you can delete the *new* directory
and mv the old one back afterwards to get your old settings back).
I also can't reproduce this bug.
Flash plugin installation succeeds for me.
Also can not reproduce here.
