Exclamation Running Firefox with flash 10 and opera with flash 9


I love to play yoville on facebook but its not working on ubuntu 9.04 with flash 10, I tried google for a solution and I fount out that installing flash 9 will end the problem and you can play yoville safely.

But the problem is that I am very comfortable with flash 10 because I always watch live videos like in youtube and such .

So I decided to install opera and make it work with flash 9 to play yoville with, and not to destroy my firefox with flash 10 stability because flash 9 was not working well with me on ubuntu 8.04 it always crashes .

Can any one help me to make opera works with flash 9 without uninstalling flash 10 from firefox ?
I am using ubuntu 9.04 and opera alpha 10

Well, first, why Opera alpha? As alpha software it's going to be buggy.

Also, I didn't get good Flash in Opera (9.6x) until 10 was released.

I can use any other browser Epiphany ot any other but the 1st propose is to make yoville work on it, and to make yoville works I must use flash 9
so I can change what I need to:
- Running firefox with flash 10 and any other browser with flash 9

I'm surprised you are not getting a straight answer on this!

To manually install whatever flash version you want, all you have to do is get the appropriate version of the file libflashplayer.so, put it in a directory somewhere then set up your browser to select that plugin location for flash.

I have problems with flash 10 in konqueror so I have set up a file /home/user/flashplayer with subfolders flash9 and flash10 with the appropriate libflashplayer.so in each one. Firefox uses flash 10, konqueror uses flash9.

Older versions of flashplayer are available from the flashplayer site, get the .tar.gz file and extract it; the libflashplayer.so file will be in the archive.

you will probably have to do a "find files" search for it. Different distros put it in different locations, I think but usually it is in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/. I have also found /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flash-mozilla.so...which I think is probably the flsahplayer.so with a different name.
