I'm running Linux Fedora Core 5, and the latest standard versions of Firefox and Adobe Flash plug-in. Flash stuff does load and run, but text won't display. This is especially problematic for the text in buttons and wigets, because it makes it very hard to use flash bashed applications.

I've removed the plugin and reinstalled it several times.

Any ideas as to the problem, or at least how to better diagnose it?

The current flash version is flash 9. The current linux flash version is flash 7. The text-based functions in vogue these days are flash 9 versions. You'll have to get the beta version of flash 9 for linux and manually install it (which is easy, thankfully).

It probably will still display old flash content just fine, the problem is that flash 7 does not support several features in flash 8 & 9 that have become very common recently. FWIW, I have been running that flash 9 beta for a few months now, so far it seems more stable than the flash 7 plugin it replaced.
