Getting Flash to run on Tor for Mac

UPDATE: In OS X Mavericks, these steps aren't required. Tor automatically locates and configures the plugins. You only have to enable it in the Settings (see Step 3 below)

Tor, by default does not support third party Firefox plugins such as Flash and Javascript and this makes it difficult to view websites such as YouTube and other sites that require flash. This tutorial aims to address the issue for Tor Browser running on Mac OS X.

We already assume that you have Tor browser installed and running. If you don't have it installed, you can download it from here and follow the installation instructions. 

Step 1: Download and install Flash Player for Mac.
