Default Acer Iconia Flash Player Problem

So yesterday I picked up an Acer Iconia A500 tablet. So far I'm loving it except one thing. I have the Flash Player 11 installed but every time I go to a page that needs flash I get the install Flash Player message. If I click it says that my device is not supported. Very confused, Flash was the whole reason I went with this tablet. Any ideas?

Ok after messing around with the thing I managed to discover that the flash player works in the native browser but not with firefox. Lame but oh well. This thing kicks butt! If any of you are thinking about getting one I highly recommend it!

Yeah, it's a FireFox thing, not an Iconia thing.

Dolphin HD for Pad (it calls it a 'pad' instead of a tablet) is a good alternative browser for Honeycomb users.

I have the same problem with Dolphin Browser on my Acer Iconia a500 Pad.

I'm looking for an other way. I don't want to use the standard browser from Acer.
