I am running a 64 bit Firefox. Many webpages I visit tell me I do not have flashplayer installed and some will not even open. Other pages offer to download and install it. Tried that once and it killed Firefox. Found out via this list, ( Joe Morris I think ?? ) that there is not a compatible flashplayer for the 64 bit Firefox.

Any ideas on how to get around this ??
You have 2 options. One, uninstall the 64 bit version and install the 32 bit version, and use Macromedia's flash player (only available in 32 bit). Two, install the swfdec and swfdec-mozilla rpms from my apt repository. They are alpha quality, but work somewhat ( ). Neither are perfect, but choice one may be best for you. Also, send an email to Macromedia and join the crowd waiting for them to port it to a 64 bit platform.
