Installing Flash into Firefox for exactly one user only
I would like to install Flash (currently is not installed) strictly for one user only. Anyone know the steps and/or where the plug-in should be placed so only that one user can access it? Shell commands to do this are fine (and in fact, preferred). I did try to just let the plug-in install itself through Firefox while logged in to that one user, but it asked for the admin password so I cancelled at that point, suspecting it would do a global install. Googling for this only found posts regarding that commercial OS.
How would I translate the 3rd command? E.g. what is the relevant path? There is no subdirectory named "firefox-addons" and in the subdirectory "firefox" there is no subdirectory named "plugins". Do I need these at all? Do I need to create "/home/flashy/.mozilla/firefox-addons/plugins" or "/home/flashy/.mozilla/firefox/plugins"?
