Question How do I get browsers to recognize Adobe FlashPlayer?

I've installed Adobe FlashPlayer 10.3 on my Motorola Bravo, via the market. It's there, it's installed, everything's great...except that my browsers don't recognize its existence. Any page that contains Flash content displays a "Get Adobe FlashPlayer" graphic and a message saying "To view this page ensure that Adobe FlashPlayer 10.3 or greater is installed" Well, it IS installed! What do I need to do to make my browsers USE FlashPlayer?

Do you have 2.1 or 2.2 on your phone? Froyo is the earliest version that supports flash.

The problem is, especially with apps like Flash®, its ability to install and run is very device specific. Even if you do get more eyes on the question, without the Bravo to test, all non-Bravo users are doing is guessing. And anyone without too much experience looking for the solution to a similar question but a different phone model will be confused and frustrated when their menus don't match and instructions posted don't work for their phones.

It keeps the forums organized and relevant, and honestly, the owners do not give us the option to "let one slip through the cracks" as it were.

Thanks for the explanation, and sorry for having sounded pretty snippy. It's just that this forum gets almost no traffic--and even fewer responses. I figured since this was more a question about browsers than about the Bravo, it could go in a non-phone-specific forum without issue.

So far I've tried Opera Mini, Firefox and ... "browser" (the default browser). Same result with all.

Skyfire is what I used when i had a non-flash phone. But I don't know, I did a quick search, and the Bravo was supposed to get flash with the froyo update.

I tried firefox mobile and opera and couldn't find a place to enable flash, but it worked LG of the box on the stock browser.

This is really annoying. Being a Linux [only] user, I'm used to installing Flash by simply copying its file(s) to the appropriate directory, but everything's different when it comes to Android. (I haven't rooted my phone--see my unanswered post in the rooting forum.) It's frustrating that I have FlashPlayer properly installed but it's not recognized by any browser, and I can't find any settings, anywhere, to enable it for specific browsers.
