Those minor inconveniences

Users of NoScript are accustomed to seeing a message telling them that they need to install Flash player to view a web page properly, and since they specifically installed that add on for that purpose it doesn't bother them. Users of 64-bit OSes on the other hand are not quite so happy, seeing as how Adobe has yet to create a 64-bit version. [OC]ModShop can offer some help to those who haven't found a work around that they like.
"Adobe must really want their users to start using Microsoft's new Silverlight technology (a rich media technology similar to
Flash). Adobe has recently released a new version of Flash, and yet there is no version for 64-bit browsers. That means that
the person using Vista x64 either has to miss out on the latest websites, or they have to use a 32-bit version of Firefox.
Trying to install Adobe onto Internet Explorer (32-bit or 64-bit) seems to work, but users are still met with the infamous "you
need to install flash" message."
