Tks for your advice.

Ran;
# yum -y install flash-plugin

Went through without complaint.

# rpm -qa flash-plugin firefox
flash-plugin-7.0.63-1
firefox-1.5.0.2-1.2.fc5

I suppose it is a 32bit firefox


# ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
total 8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 May 12 14:34 flashplayer.xpt ->
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/flashplayer.xpt
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 May 12 14:34 libflashplayer.so ->
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

Symlinks created automatically during installing flash-plugin


Tested on;
http://www.studiocleo.com/indexfiles/indexmn.html#

Failed still asking to download and install "flash-plugin"


Tested other websites on Internet, flash-plugin did not work also
requesting to download flash-plugin

(Remark: including restarted firefox and restarted FC5_64)


Further action taken;
# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/
# ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config

# ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/
total 4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 May 12 15:27 config -> /etc/X11/fs/config


No improvement found.
