What flashplugin and wrapper do you use? If you use
linux-flashplugin-7.0r69 with nspluginwrapper (you probably do, with
native Firefox), you might need the following after Xorg upgrade:
%ln -s ~/.mozilla/plugins ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins
That works for me. Before that you can of course consider to re-create
nspluginwrapper's files, like this:
%nspluginwrapper -v -a -r (remove old wrapper files)
%nspluginwrapper -v -a -i (install all available plugins)
Then check with about:plugins if all of them are recognised by Firefox.
