Since about 2-3 weeks ago
I cannot get flash to work in firefox.

I checked the handbook again, deinstalled/reinstalled, etc.
Still nothing.

I've 10.1-STABLE #23 r277808 laptop with

# pkg info -xo fire nsplug linux-c6-flash nvidia-d
firefox-35.0.1_1,1             www/firefox
nspluginwrapper-1.4.4_4        www/nspluginwrapper
linux-c6-flashplugin-11.2r202.442 www/linux-c6-flashplugin11
nvidia-driver-340-340.76       x11/nvidia-driver-340

$ nspluginwrapper -l
  Original plugin: /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/symlinks/linux-firefox/libflashplayer.so
  Plugin viewer: /usr/local/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer
  Wrapper version string: 1.4.4-1

in firefox, about;plugins shows:

Installed plugins
Find updates for installed plugins at mozilla.com/plugincheck
OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.

    State: Enabled
    Play back web video and use video chats.

MIME Type	Description	Suffixes
Shockwave Flash

    File: npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    Path: /usr/home/mexas/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    State: Enabled
    Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

MIME Type	Description	Suffixes
application/x-shockwave-flash	Shockwave Flash	swf
application/futuresplash	FutureSplash Player	spl

So all seems fine. However, any attempt to use flash,
e.g. youtube.com or friv.com, gives blank screen -
no error, no warning.

I cannot check right now, but I think
my 10.1-stable laptop at home also
has firefox-35, and flash works there (again
I might be wrong here).

So, anybody else is having this problem?
Anything else I can try to narrow down
the issue?
