Smile Flash player in Slackware


Hello, I've updated Firefox from version 15.0.1 to 21.0 and installed flash plugin and flash player, by putting libflashplayer.so to the browser installation directory, which is /usr/lib64/firefox-21.0/browser/plugins and moving configuration files.
After that I launch Adobe Flash Player, without clicking any option, I closed it, I found that Firefox was not working well on sound playing anymore , in YouTube, watching video without sound?
What problem is it?

You can eliminate flashplayer as a cause by checking if it is installed correctly. Open Firefox and in the Tools menu go to Add-ons and click on that. Go to Plugins (last item on the right of the Add-Ons screen) and you should see Shockwave Flash with a button on the right saying "Disable" (meaning that it is enabled now). If that's true then the flashplayer has been installed correctly. Aside from Flashplayer does your sound work on other programs and on other sites besides Youtube using Firefox?

The directory should be

/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
Anyway, did you try Slackbuild from Slackware extras?
