to see this video."   If the computer is rebooted after applying the Flash
upgrade patch, the message says "click here to download plugin," which of
course does nothing on a non-windows OS.

an error message box jumps up saying "Flash required for this application.
Your browser must have Flash 9.0 or higher installed to add this
application. You can download and install the latest Flash Player here."
(Ironically, the Yahoo main page with its photos, news stories, and ads does
not complain.)

And, Kris Moore asked:

Also, what browser / architecture is this? i386 or amd64?

Thanks for the speedy replies.

@ Kris:

The architecture is amd64 and I was using Firefox 4.0 64 bit at the time.  I
am now using Firefox 4.0.1 64 bit version at this time.

@ Dru:

The following is the output from the nspluginwrapper command, which did not
appear to make any difference.
