Hi rasmunyah...

I had a problem of adding flash plugin to firefox with fedora9, My firefox was crashing when i add flash plugin, Hope you too have same problem.

Code:
cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
mv libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.so.bkp
Download older version of libflashplayer.so and place it under ~/.mozilla/plugins

Now enable flash in firefox under Tools > Addons > Plugins > flash enable..

Hope this helps...

Cheers !!

Ras,

If flash is installed it's probably located in /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
So you need to either copy it or make a link to it into your firefox plugins directory.

so you could try

# cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

or possibly

$ cd /usr/lib/flash-plugin/
$ ln -s libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

There's likely other efficient ways to do this but this is how I do it.
