A fix for Flash not working on some sites in Firefox Web Browsers
Flash wasn't working consistently for me in Firefox -- it would for some sites, but not for ComedyCentral.com or some others. Running through my standard troubleshooting list, I finally came up with a solution: I was using the Adblock add-on instead of Adblock Plus (I like it better because it's easier to pull up the blockable elements on a page).

Now that I've replaced Adblock with Adblock Plus, and changed the Options (visible when clicking the ABP icon in the tooblar) to uncheck 'Show Tabs on Flash and Java,' Flash now works consistently again.

A fix for Flash not working on some sites in Firefox

I had the same issus with older versions of Firefox (2.x) on both Linux and Mac, and the solution i had to use was going into about:config and set extensions.adblockplus.frameobject to false.
