If you're using the flashplayer installer, you have to know the location of your firefox installation (usr/lib/firefox-1.01 on mine) use "find" or "locate" to determine where it is on your system, then close all browsers, start the installer and follow the prompts

You don't need to know anything. Just visit
http://macromedia.mplug.org/ and install an RPM package for the Flash plugin.

There is no Flash plugin for x86_64. It's only available as 32-bit.
