As the title states, I've been trying to download the b4 bit flash player 10 (square) plugin for firefox 4 from adobe for several days with no success. Clicking on the link http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz produces a timeout as does wget from terminal for the same URL. Has anyone been able to download the square plugin for Firefox 4? If so, could they send it to me? Pretty please?[-o<

Flash-Aid also uses wget, so if you are experiencing such problem with it, most likely the installation script will fail. However, Flash-Aid also allows to install from a local file. To do that, download the plugin archive manually, click the "Advanced Mode" in Flash-Aid menu, than change the installation source to "Custom", then browse the file you got from Adobe. Click the "Script" tab and then "Execute" button.

Had actually browsed this previously. It doesn't address the specific problem of flash player. Are you suggesting that I should upgrade the whole Firefox package to 5? Would this automatically clear up my problem? I'll do this if you think it'll work: the only reason I haven't is I was wondering if 5 will run on lucid LTS: it's supposed to be bundled with natty, right?
