Default Help I'm lost

For some odd reason overnight I've lost the ability to display video in Firefox, I just get a 'install latest flash player' message.

It was working when I 'zonked out' at about 18:00 UK time, it's now 01:57 and it doesn't work.

Help, advice?

Might want to try and install latest player. I like to uninstall the old one before installing the new player:

I believe Firefox doesn't automatically check for updates to Flash Player and some plugins.

Here is a possibly helpful link that Firefox provides as an alternative:

I guess another option is to use regular checks with something like Secunia or another software updater.
Live long and prosper.

Switch to Seamonkey or Cometbird
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.

Go to Tools > Add-ons.
Then when the Add-ons windows appears, click the plugins tab.
Make sure Shockwave Flash is enabled.
