Well I updated flash-plugin on Etch. I had to mess about a bit, as my Etch was 
upgraded from Sarge, and a lot of stuff, including the flash-plugin, and 
Firefox wasn't directly available from the Debian repos.

Anyway. Now I have installed flashplugin-nonfree , which as it says 
is from the nonfree Debian repo. This downloaded the plugin from Adobe, and 
installed it.

I've tried it out with Konqueror, and the site still works fine, as it does on 
FC2. The site asks for 1 cookie to be accepted, which I ok, and the box 
displays the list of stock, the arrows, and the "Bid-Ask" prices, which 
regularly update.

It's at least working with Konqueror on Debian Etch. I still have to update 
Firefox on Etch, so havn't tried that yet.


btw. Did you install it using apt-get from the nonfree repo, or did you get 
the plugin directly from Adobe?
