I am having Flash issues even though the system reports it as properly installed.

The issue best manifests itself on FB. When I want to view a youtube video on FB and click play, I get the message:

Flash Player upgrade required
You must download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player to view this content.

Hitting "Get Flash Player" takes me to the adobe page where I download RPM adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm. I installed it by double-clicking from the Files file browser but FB feed youtube vids still show the same issue. Even after rebooting.

I was wondering if something needs to be set manually withing Firefox to let it know that there is Flash installed.

Oh, let me add that videos play fine on the YouTube site. However, Vimeo reports that an Flash upgrade is required.
