Installed flash palyer in Firefox dosent work

Hello everyone, I am newcomer for Fedora, and I have some problems with flashplayer in Firefox.

I installed flash player by next commands in terminal:

  1. rpm -ivh
  2. rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

Effectively, all this does is place a file within /etc/yum.repos.d/ called adobe-linux-x86_64.repo and then imports the GPG key which was used to sign the packages stored within the repo. This does not actually install the package.

You probably now want to run the following:

$ sudo dnf install flash-plugin

If you continue facing issues with the Flash player, let us know what you are trying to do and in what application you are trying to do it in.

Thanks for your answer.

Use $ sudo dnf install flash-pluginand here is terminal output:
Last metadata expiration check: 1:21:36 ago on Thu 28 May 2020 01:12:04 PM MSK.
Package flash-plugin- is already installed.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

I setup plugin in firefox, but it still dont work.
On page about:plugins flashplayer plugin exist, but many players still not working

moons ago when I was using flash I run a script after flash installation.
It main content was:

/sbin/restorecon -v ~/.mozilla/plugins/;

maybe this could help today too ?

Thank you for your advice, but it is not working.
After using this command nothing happen

I don’t have any problem with normal firefox and flash install on it and see twitch:

why you don’t revert:

4.2 Disable Wayland and Fallback Xorg

If you can’t use firefox-x11, then you can disable Wayland modifying /etc/gdm/custom.conf , uncomment WaylandEnable=false line:

# GDM configuration storage

# Uncomment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg


And reboot:


and install al plug-ins:

sudo dnf install gstreamer1-plugins-{bad-\*,good-\*,base} gstreamer1-libav --exclude=gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free-devel
sudo dnf install lame\* --exclude=lame-devel
sudo dnf group upgrade --with-optional Multimedia


I am very grateful to you for trying to help me, but this method did not work, and the situation with the flash player does not change, thank you very much for you advice

If video in Firefox does not worjk in some pages try to restart in add-ons Disabled Mode or Safe mode or Refresh FF. Find that in FF / Help / Troubleshooting information /
