All of a sudden flash-enabled websites that our younger children like to

or getting stuck at a blue screen with the text:  "Detecting Flash..." 
at the top.  Others come up saying that the version of Flash is not 

When I go to the Macromedia Flash test sites everything works just fine. 

Has there been a recent change in the way Flash detection software is 
being implemented?  Most use some form of embedded javascript.  The 
problems occur in any version of Firefox from 1.0.7 through, all 
recent versions of konqueror, and Mozilla running on Linux.  On a 
WindowsXP laptop running Firefox everything works as it should.

What is strange is that everything was working fine about a week ago 
(last of April).
