i've installed Slackware 14 64 bits and i've installed also firefox 18.0.2. the problem is that firefox web pages keep complaining about flashplayer. i have libflashplayer.so at /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins, but is it as libflashplayer was not there. By the way, i installed also opera, and it looks for libflashplayer at the "right place", so i have no problems there. Can anyone help me ?
That's what I do with flash personally. I have it installed into /opt/adobe-flash/lib$BUILD_LIB_SUFFIX/libflashplayer.so so I just symlink it to the proper $HOME directory depending on the browsers used by the individual users.
i think this problem is related just to firefox, because i have no problems with opera or seamonkey...because they also point to /usr/lib64/mpozilla/plugins and i have no problems; another thing is firefox isn't detecting java, but seamonkey and opera point it to the right path
Why don't you use the "official" Slackware Firefox 18.0.2? It was updated on the 6th of February. From the Changelog:
Wed Feb 6 07:14:25 UTC 2013
