You left out the most important facts regarding your problem:

1. Version and architecture of Fedora. (I'm assuming that you are
using a x64 version.)
2. Whose flash plugin and version?

Have you tried the 64-bit alpha release from Adobe.
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html ? Just extract it
and place it into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/, restart Firefox and check
"about:plugins" to see if it installed.
