This has probably been answered somewhere...

When I try to use certain sites, like zshare, etc, Firefox shows that I need to install a plugin, when I click it, it'll say that no suitable plugins were found. I have everything installed; Java, shockwave, etc. I read on one site that somebody was having the same problems because of the 64-bit/32-bit thing. He changed something to the i686 folder or something? I'm running 64-bit too.

Go to adobe website and download flash player, and shockwave. Also, you might try download the latest version of java if you dont have it.

What version of Firefox are you using? Also, and I really don't mean to offend you or make you sound incompetent but I get this all the time, did you close all Firefox windows and reopen them, or perhaps shut down the computer after installing the plugins and boot back up? Again, that's not meant to offend you, it simply covers about 75% of the calls I get. At least.
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.

I'm using 3.5.5 and you didn't offend me, sometimes it can be the basic things that can be the problem, I've had that happen before, haha. But yeah, I've close everything out and have shut my computer down a few times ever since I've noticed and it hasn't fixed. My computer is new and hasn't been running but a week or so.
