These are the install instructions from Adobe for the .tar.gz file.

Quote:

Installation instructions for tar.gz

1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Unpackage the file.
4. Copy the libflashplayer.so file to the plugins folder of your browser. Refer to your browser vendor for the location of this folder.
5. To verify the plug-in is installed in your Mozilla browser, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.

You do not put libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib. Step 4 states it goes in the plugins directory for each web browser you have installed. The browser is not finding flashplayer.
