Get yourself a flash player!

From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
Mozilla used to rely on a sneaky link
to get Macromedia Flash Player capability. Now, when Netscape is dropped,
it's time for Red hat to step-up and start distributing
Flash Player for Linux from Macromedia yourselves.
After all Macromedia only asks for displaying their logo.
This is not a big deal in mozilla, is it? ... unless of course
Red Hat is committed to open source software only.
No, you are not :), productivity CD is perfectly sutable to include
mozilla-flash-5.0.r50-1.i386.rpm with that damn logo.
To make your inquieries easier, I give you a couple of links:
tar.gz is at
Distribution license for logo is at:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Netscape is dropped
2. Mozilla is not able to use flash player plugin
The flash player is closed source; we're definitely moving towards all open
source in the base distribution.
