Problems starting flash in firefox


On my Fedora laptop, when I try to load web pages with flash, firefox hangs and spits out these error messages repeatedly:

*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** ERROR: failed to initialize plugin-side RPC client connection
*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** WARNING../src/npw-wrapper.c:3160):invoke_NP_Initialize: assertion failed: (rpc_method_invoke_possible(g_rpc_connection))
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
I've seen this before many times. Does anyone know why this suddenly starts to occur and how to fix it?

Re: Problems starting flash in firefox

Are you using 64bit Fedora? The NSPlugin Wrapper makes me think so. If so I think that may be the cause of the issue.

Re: Problems starting flash in firefox

There is 64-bit flash player available with adobe if you are using a 64-bit operating system - which should be the case since you are using nspluginwrapper.

This, I believe, is a known bug - Bug report.
