I don't know for certain, but Macromedia is probably using
Flash 5 SWFs now, so (since there is no Flash 5 player for
Linux) you were probably detected by a sniffer and passed
on to an HTML-only version of the site.

It should work on a site that uses Flash 4 plug-ins, assuming
your player supports Flash 4.
