    Default please help with flash player install

    Before anyone says search the forums, I have searched and found plenty of threads and posts talking about how to get flash player working in firefox. I have used those threads and posts and still I can not get flash player working. I have also gone through the how to's in the forums as well as on the wiki and still nothing.

    I am running BT5 R3 Gnome 64 bit on a persistent USB installed using VMware. I have been able to get flash player working on my other computer that has BT5 R3 KDE 32 bit that was installed natively but not this one.

    Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    I have to say I had quite a few issues getting Flash to work - I followed the Back-Track wiki article as well as a number of other online postings and I could not get Flash to work with Firefox.

    Eventually I used a Firefox addon which worked perfectly without issue.

    The addon is called 'Flash-Aid' https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...don/flash-aid/

    I have had no issue since using it and you could of course remove the addon once it has done its work.

    Obviously do your own research around this addon to check there are no issues with using it for your setup (my mini disclaimer :] )

    I do not have any error messages other than when I try to watch a Youtube video it says that I am missing a pluggin.

    Also I have flash-aid installed and enabled on firefox but I am still unable to view the Youtube videos.

    I am really at a loss as to what to do about this.

    I had to mess with flash forever to get it to work. The best solution I found was a post from Nitrogen.

    Hope this helps.... It's like 4 steps and you are done.
