Description

I am new to Tor and would like to make use of this software.
I placed all of my Firefox Plug-in's into TOR Plugin folder and don't know what else is needed to get the one plug in that is most important to me to work. What is the correct procedure to get Flash Player to work in TOR ?

Tor Browser Bundle actually goes to great lengths to prevent Flash and related plugins from running. See https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/torbutton-faq.html.en#noflash for an explanation.

In short, there are so many different ways that Flash can screw your privacy and security that we think it is hopeless at this point to let Tor users use Flash and still expect any safety. We hope to be able to change that position in the future, but we're not there yet.
