I downloaded the Flash 8.0 player and it runs a little while, but exits without completing the installation. It doesn't work from the Firefox message bar either. So, Flash is broken for Firefox 1.5?

Yep. My Flash and Shockwave both crapped out after I dl'ed FX 1.5 and no amount of uninstalling and reinstalling will help.

Are you using the Adblock extension? I had to uninstall it and reinstall the latest version before Flash would work. You can test it by just disabling Adblock in the extension list.

Damn, that was it. Thanks a lot.

I guess it was actually installing. It used to show a message and a little wizard dialog box as part of the install, but now it doesn't, so I assumed the install was failing silently.

It appears the install was working, but ad-block was screwing up Flash with that Obj-Tabs option.

What does Obj-Tabs do?
