I'm using GNOME.  For years, I had recurring problems playing Flash (and other multimedia files) through any browser, but Firefox was the most problematical.  Some sites worked fine; others wouldn't work at all; some would work, but with frequent crashes or freezes or stuttering requiring reloading/restarting the browser.  To make a long story short, using yum, I completely uninstalled Totem and all its related files, installed mplayer-plugin (and its dependencies), and that cured 98% of the multimedia problems.  Sites that wouldn't work, now did. Flash was installed manually per Adobe's directions.

Maybe, there are some KDE plugins, etc. that Foxnews doesn't like or can't recognize and stops.  What plugins do you have installed?
