 I use the yum repo for Adobe and did 
yum update flash-plugin 
on a machine running f8 i386
which seemed to work OK - but I tried the site you quoted and it failed to work.

When I looked at about:plugins I found there were two versions of shockwave flash
listed - which puzzled me. So I did
yum remove flash-plugin
followed by 
yum install flash-plugin

the site above then worked.... 

so I checked another machine running f8 i386 and also found two versions of 
"shockwave flash" listed in about:plugins

Odd!
