Firefox provides its own method of installing Flash you know. Try undoing all of that, then simply going to a site that uses Flash. You should get a dialog that pops up talking about missing plugins. You can "find missing plugins" then download and install Flash for you automatically right from that dialog.
well i am working with suse 10.1 and i had a problem i had to first extract the downloaded file into a separate directory and then inside that directory there was file called flashplayer-installer so basically i installed it in the terminal under *su and then it installed fine except for i had to direct it to my firefox's directory to install plugins there. which was under /usr/lib/firefox i never worked with FC so i wouldnt know how different it is from KDE but try this way
The problem was with the SE linux. When I disabled the SE linux in FC5, its working. Can anybody help me in finding out which specific function in SE linux is preventing the Flash player to work.
