Unhappy flash plugin for mozilla plugin doesn't work.


I am using openSUSE 11.0. This OS installation gives firefox 3.0.5 Beta.
I had installed new version of firefox at /usr/local/bin/firefox.
I had placed link of this firefox at /usr/bin
using this command ->
Code:
linux-snvz:/usr/bin # ln -s /usr/local/bin/firefox/firefox firefox
My older firefox contains the flush plugin. So i can easily played youtube video's in my browser. But now my new browser saying that it doesn't have flash plugin.
I was tried to install flash plugin once again.
Code:
linux-snzv:/home/raju/Downloads # rpm -ivh *.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:flash-plugin           ########################################### [100%]
Even after installation also my browser is again without flash plugin.

plug-in dir problem i guess.

try copyirg flashplugin to /usr/local/lib/firefox-$VERSION/plugins/

alternatively use $HOME/.mozilla/plugin/ (if it's not there, create it)
