Whenever I try and play a video of a news event, say by the US President or whatever, Firefox tells me that there is no plug-in.

What does that mean?

If you were previously using Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash is only installed as an ActiveX plugin and not the module/add-in version that Firefox requires.

The easiest way to install it is via Ninite, simply select Flash Player for other browsers or you can download it from by clicking here.
