I *think* this is possibly due a selinux policy issue. Please select the "Allow
the use of shared libraries with Text Relocation" in the compatibility section.
In the security level gui. I had to do a 'setenforce 0' and back to 1 to get
firefox to see flash plugin and any other java plugins.
Comment 2 Adam Stokes 2006-01-20 22:26:45 EST
there was also a mention of "chcon system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t <whatever>
The problem is more the software vendor, not selinux :)" from
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2006-January/msg01074.html but
again im not so sure :)

I have the same problem with Flash on Firefox, while SELinux is off initially.
So I believe it has not too much to do with SELinux. Please advise.
