Post Flash-Aid for Firefox
I've noticed lots of people have posted about problems with 64-bit flash. There's a Firefox add-on called Flash-Aid, which was developed for Ubuntu. Has anyone tried this add-on with MEPIS?

Tried it, detected my system properly and opens a terminal. It requires that the user be in the sudoers file. Mine is not and I did not bother going further. It does look like it can be made to work.
