F12 Flash Plugin

Adobe currently does not offer a 64-bit version of their Flash Plugin via a repository, but they do have an Alpha version that is available for download. Here is the relevant background information:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/64bit.html
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10_64bit.html

Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the Download 64-bit Plugin for Linux link. Once the plugin has downloaded, compress it:

~> tar vfzx ~/Downloads/libflashplayer-10.0.32.18.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
Then move it to the Firefox plugins directory:
~> sudo mv ~/Downloads/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/.
Finally, change the ownership of the file:
~> sudo chown root.root /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
Restart Firefox to enable the flash plugin. You can go to any number of places, such as Adobe's Flash Player page, to test it.
